Older people often find it difficult to travel. They might have a lot of nice memories on specific places and cities all over the world and would love to re-experience this moments. Due to their limited mobility they are not able to go to this place anymore.
A lot of younger people love to travel around the world. But some start to feel that traveling and experiencing cities is not not special anymore since cities and countries move closer culture-wise. People nowadays look for places and streets with a story and feel the special atmospheres.
So the idea is as easy as it sounds: Older people who can’t travel anymore ask young travels to take a picture of a street or place when they visit a city. In return they share the story of this place and what made it special for them.
Older people can relive their special moments with the picture and see what changed since their visit and what not. Young travels are on a complete new mission. Discovering places full of emotions and memories. This makes their journey more special and unique.
Imagine you take a picture of a small road in Rome and now how an old lady from Canada met her italian affair in this street for the first time. While you take the picture you imagine the situation which happened 50 years ago. Magic, right? And imagine how happy you make the old lady with a picture of this street. She can re-experience her magic moment again.
The idea is easy to implement. We can create a small website where old people can request a picture and once someone answered to their request share the story. For the picture we can use a service such as Instagram. People just take the picture and use a specific hashtag which is than shown below the request and the story.
With the time we have a huge database of pictures and stories. We could even publish them and help that this kind of special stories are not forgotten.
