Amadeus North America calls it social capital seeking and recently asked me for my take on this. To document your travels via social media or not, and why?
At the heart of it all is our desire as people to leave something behind. Documenting travel goes back as far as travel itself. We left marks on caves as we migrated, and mapped the worlds that lay beyond the end of the earth. We climbed mountains for our countries and wrote journals home about our conquests to be published. Sharing our adventures through social media and blogs is simply the evolution of the human story. Our travels and learnings can now be published and consumed in the present, pushing the way we experience and appreciate people’s cultures and places around the world ever further and ever faster. – Jonathan Ronzio
