Presenting your memories

Talking about your trips.

Use this guide to help you present a travel destination or share a memorable travel experience.

  1. Know your audience: Tailor the presentation to their interests and background.

   – Example: If presenting to adventure enthusiasts, focus on thrilling activities like trekking and mountain biking in the destination.

  1. Storytelling: Use personal anecdotes to make the presentation engaging.

   – Example: “During my trip to Japan, I got lost in Tokyo but ended up discovering the most charming little tea shop tucked away in an alley.”

  1. Visuals: Utilize high-quality images and videos to bring the destination to life.

   – Example: Show a stunning photo of the azure waters and white sandy beaches of the Maldives.

  1. Highlight uniqueness: Emphasize what makes the destination special.

   – Example: “New Zealand offers a perfect blend of breathtaking landscapes, from majestic fjords to geothermal wonders like Rotorua.”

  1. Provide practical information: Offer travel tips and essential details.

   – Example: “For visiting Italy, remember to apply for a Schengen visa and try authentic Italian pizza in Naples!”

  1. Appeal emotionally: Discuss transformative aspects of the travel experience.

   – Example: “Volunteering with a local community in Cambodia was a humbling experience that changed my perspective forever.”

  1. Promote sustainability: Advocate for responsible travel practices.

   – Example: “Costa Rica’s eco-tourism initiatives are a prime example of how responsible travel can protect nature and support communities.”

  1. Encourage interactivity: Include polls or Q&A sessions for engagement.

   – Example: “Raise your hand if you’ve ever tried scuba diving. Share your favorite diving spot in the chat!”

  • Example 1: “What’s your dream travel destination? Let’s see how many of you would love to visit the beautiful city of Paris – type ‘Paris’ in the chat!”
  • Example 2: “I’m curious to know your favorite travel activity. Is it hiking, snorkeling, or something else? Vote using the reaction emojis!”
  • Example 3: “We’ve got a travel quiz! What’s the tallest mountain in the world? A. Mount Kilimanjaro B. Mount Everest C. Mount Fuji. Drop your answers in the chat!”

  1. Manage time: Keep the presentation concise and well-structured.

   – Example: Stick to the main attractions and unique experiences rather than delving into every aspect of the trip.

  1. Spark curiosity: Leave room for the audience to explore further.

   – Example: “I won’t reveal the hidden gem I found in Bali – you’ll have to explore it yourself to experience its magic!”
