Default To Royaldevon: The consequences of not taking notes while travelling

Thank you Beverley,

I have never kept a diary during my travels like Gert for example. Also I never noted what I saw and where.

However, after my four-and-a-half-month journey, I have sadly found that my memory may be able to keep track of the locations of an ordinary journey, but not one of such duration. Or is it old age?
I should have written down one and the other, but never bothered to do it on the way.

As for the important monuments or attractions, it is easy to find information about them.
I still have my various guidebooks, although I planned to sell them in a second-hand bookstore in Bangkok at the end of my trip. Due to the pandemic I have not made it to Bangkok anymore.
You can also find a lot of information on the internet.
Just a Google search for 'Important Mosques in Brunei' would help with this photo.

But if someone asks me in the street tomorrow if I know the names of both of Brunei's great mosques, I would not be able to answer 'Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddien Mosque' and 'Jame' Asr Hassanal Bolkiah Mosque'
If that person tells me the names himself, I would know if it's right or not.

As long as I can still remember 'Herculaneum', 'Pompei', etc., I won't take it too seriously.
Besides the long-term memory lasts much longer

Kind regards,
