Day 14 – How blogging helped me to remember places…

…I’d visited abroad

What I learned from my postcard poetry series

I remember details about places that I might otherwise have forgotten.

There’s a danger when you’re touring across a continent; different places blend into one another. Especially if you visit six countries in ten days!

This moment of realisation came when my husband asked me, would I like to go back to Koblenz for the Christmas markets? I had trouble remembering Koblenz at first, and then the lines of my haiku prompted me with:

Father Rhine and Mother Moselle!

I remembered it as the city intersected by two rivers, the place which held many surprises including a steampunk Noah’s Ark fountain. I’m glad I wrote about it, as it’s imprinted the experience on my memory. And it’s made me more determined to write more, share more.

Thanks for reading! 🙂
