Instead of saying " reminds me of ", how could I rephrase it by putting in "reminisce" in the mix? Is it possible? From my POV perhaps it's not the best suited word for this purpose, but what do I know?

Could someone give me a few examples of how to best use the word "reminisce".

Thanks in advance!

    Roy and I ate the meal and reminisce about the trip.

    I don't like reminiscing because it makes me feel old.

    So I guess it's safe to say reminisce does not mean the same thing as "reminds me of".

    Thanks for the replies!

    John and I were reminiscing the good old childhood day when we were growing up on the countryside, going fishing and playing in the field on the hot summer days as we were sipping on wines by the riverbank.

    Reminise has a positive feel-good annotation to it, meaning retracing the memory of something happy in time passed.

    Please refer to the second sentence provided by me: I don't like reminiscing because it makes me feel old.

    It doesn't have a positive feel-good annotation.

    Please refer to the second sentence provided by me: It doesn't have a positive feel-good annotation.

    What if said "Reminise has a sentimental annotation to it, meaning retracing the memory of something happy in time passed". Perhaps, the feeling of getting old' is something you subconscientiously created in your mind Emotion: smile I am not convinced by your statement. not to me anyway...
