Only interaction back home was with post cards 1 way
Gather yout photos together
Perhaps keep a detailed record of your journey through journals
Created stories To remember till the end of time Compose our own stories

Only viewed during family renuions, or family gathering
Now things have changed, we are using the web more and more in our travels
Research is done online, through web portals Old mediums have been translated to the web. Lonely planet is also online
User generated guides, more content is available Wikitravel, for all your travelling needs I reviewd it before goig to phuket, and machu pichu
Here is one for kuching You may want to update it yourself
Dopplr, update your location with everyone, so your family, friends, colleague, knows where you are in the world. I have a friend who is constantly travelling, and this is a good indicator of where in the world he currently is.
Everyone can fly Makes flying cheap You become your own travel agent.
Don't rely on postcards anymore. Can't immediately notify the world of what you are doing Bragging about your unexpectional life.
Flickr, upload your photos during your journey. So people can see what you are up to. This is a trip of mine to chile Flickr is an online photo service
Let people comment on it
Upload your videos online as well
Facebook, your lifestyle aggregator
pure vanity, tell everyone what you are doing. For who is more important that “I”? If you upload a photo, everyone knows If you upload a video, everyone knows Definitely an invasion of your own privacy. But happiness is the hardest expression to hide. You just want to share your happiness with others.
This doesn't mean that the old medium is gone. This just enahcnes it
