Everyone is different. So not everyone is travelling alone, most people don’t in fact. Not everyone likes visiting internet cafés whilst travelling. This page gives some insight into the different ways you can make your diary work, and gives a few pointers on writing a diary too.
They say that travel can make or break a relationship. This is true, but also can add many interesting anecdotes that are always best told by the person that was a laughing observer to the incident. Sharing a Planet Ranger Travel Page with someone is pretty easy. Just tell them the password (no we don’t mind as long as you don’t) and they too can add diary entries or photos. That’s pretty much it, you didn’t really need us to tell you that did you? Some things to note though:
If you’ve already travelled, it doesn’t mean you can’t share your experiences on the web. You just need to use a little thought. If you wish to have a Planet Ranger page, you need to break your story up into sections, by date. That’s how Planet Ranger works. If you have written a paper diary while travelling, then it’s easy – just get your typing fingers ready. If not, time to get creative. Maybe start by looking at a calendar and figuring out good dates to break the diary up. Photo uploads are not date specific, so if you have some photos – upload them to go with your diary.
If you were the type that failed in creative writing at school, never fear, most English teachers will tell you that the best stories told are those written about real experiences. You don’t have to be creative – just use a bit of common sense. Here are some tips from some people who have absolutely no qualifications whatsoever – take them for what they are.
Most importantly, don’t worry about they way you write your diary. People who know you aren’t likely to criticize and will always be interested in what you are up to.
