How to remember names of places

There are many ways to remember names of places and one of the best ways to do so is to keep a notebook with you wherever you go. Keep taking notes in this notebook and write down as many things as you can observe in the place. The idea here is to get the place etched in your visual memory. On doing this, something magical happens. You start remembering names and never forget them ever. Isn’t this wonderful? All you have to do is keep taking notes and.. Voila … you can remember each and every place name you visited.

Well, there are many ways to better your memory when it comes to remembering names. However, the one method that I mentioned now is one of the best ones I know of. However, in this article I am going to show you other methods that are helpful too.

1. Keep the memory of the place alive through pictures.

Taking pictures of a place helps in memorizing the place. You can turn on the location of your device so that it can capture the place you visited and you can see them later.

2. Talk to the locals in a new place.

Whenever I visit a new place, I make sure to talk to the locals of the place. Doing this helps me remember the place because I already have a memory associated with it through that person.

3. Read books about places.

There is something interesting about books that talk about places. There are so many places to visit on this earth and there are only a limited number of days for us to live. We have to read more about places in order to remember them. I like to read blogs on travelling. They talk about places and experiences. It helps me not just with remembering the names of places, but gives me a lot more exposure to the world outside.

4. Watch TV shows.

There are many shows in the USA where they talk about new places. There are word game shows where you get to learn about names of places. One of the shows that I particularly like is the one where they have this category for names of places. It’s called wheel of fortune places. In one of the episodes of the show, there was a contestant who won a million dollars just by getting the names of places correct in the wheel of fortune places category. Isn’t that incredible? Watching this show, I thought to myself that one day I am going to be there in the show.

5. Be a travel blogger.

One of the most interesting things about travel blogging is that you get to remember so many places. It is certainly an amazing experience for me. I remember having visited Europe a couple of years back. I can still recall all the names of the cities I have been to. This is how interesting travel can be. It makes your memory sharper while you have fun.
