2. No, there is no voice memo feature.   I really wish there was; it would help to record a note about places visited as you said.

John, it's strange that a so useful feature is now forgotten in 99% of the cameras. As I use the camera in travel abroad or also in Italy. when I need to memorize a place, the name of one square, church, person or any other information I need to have a pen and a piece of paper !! Frankly my old Panasonic TZ7 was much better  : 5 seconds immediately after the shot or 30 seconds in review mode and the most important was that in the PC  the memo record  show exactly the shot in reference . The only alternative is to take a 5/10 seconds video with your voice that explain the  details  of the shot .

Hard life indeed for the travel photographers !

I agree about the lack of a memo recording. If I'm at a landmark, statue, art work or building I will try to find a plaque or description of it and take a picture to remind me of it later. It's a pain to search Google or Wikipedia later to find information about a location, though searching will usually turn up a similar image, sometimes with a description.

I'm one of the few persons having only one  cell phone to call and receive calls  , no smartphones, no IPhone, no IPad , no  I xxx .  so the camera is my only tool during my travels. As I use to print my pictures and in my photo-albums I write all the info regarding the travel  (altitude, temperature, hour and  sometimes also the weather ) because to glance at my albums is to  I live again my travel . I'll stick in my albums also the flight ticket,  restaurant and hotel bill etc..  If you have 5 minutes  time to  spend you can have a look at the link below that Patagonia dedicated me due to my numerous travels all the world around. So you  can easy understand how many info I need to record with my camera
