At the start of our trip, we decided to try and film a few seconds of footage each day, with the idea that at the end of each month we would mash it all together in iMovie.  We weren’t sure how it would go, but we were really happy with our first video and the response was so great that we decided to keep it going.

It really doesn’t take much work – just a few seconds of filming each day, and then a couple of hours at the computer at the end of the month.  It also lets us sit down and relive the previous 30 days – and searching through our iPods for songs on long boat or bus trips is a much needed distraction.
