Travel Tips - My Vacation, but no pix of me.

It never ceases to amaze us but most people have few pictures of themselves on vacation. Oh, they may have one or two but most personal pictures feature only one of the couple traveling together.

Most of the time when someone says, “Remember when we went to …” they may only have their memories to rely on, as they do not have photos that include both of them at the "special place". Why do so many people have the “Vacations without me” syndrome?

We think that many tourists are embarrassed to ask someone else to take the time to take pictures of them. Of course, some people are unwilling to place their expensive camera in the hands of a total stranger. Yet others think they have a complicated camera and are reluctant to give a “how to use this camera” demonstration when they cannot speak the language of the person they need to take the picture.


Well, all digital cameras work pretty much the same way.  Set your camera  to full automatic, ask someone to take a picture of you and show them the one button they need to take the picture.  In turn, offer to take their picture with their camera.  Everyone we have ever met has been glad to do this and appreciates the opportunity to have their picture taken - so they can have a memory of their visit.

Now, that wasn't so hard, was it?
