All you need is to become amazed by your own stories and this is what will bring a story teller in you. Public speaking is an art and so is grasping everyone’s attention while you skillfully tell your travel story. Pick the best photos out, be confident of your own experience and contact pubs, libraries, organizations, set the date, hour and price and you let the crowd become mesmerized.
2. Travel articles
