Everyone takes photos while they're traveling, so next time you find yourself on the road make sure to have a camera nearby. It's by far the best way to show off your travels to your friends and family back home and to create a memento of your own.
I've had a lot cameras over the years. Most of them have worn out over time or have been traded in for a model with newer features. I went to visit my mom last weekend and while I was there I found the first camera my parents had ever bought for me, sitting right there on a stack of old, worn out art supplies in the basement.
