How to Make Your Travel Memories Last Forever

by - 07:04

Let’s face it, photo albums just aren’t all that fun. Do you ever get bored to death by an uncle or auntie who wants to show you every single photo that was taken? Trust me, we have all been there.

Sometimes, photos on your Instagram just isn’t enough. You might want something to flick back on every couple of years, or even show your kids and grandkids, right?

Here are 5 fun ways that you can showcase your latest holiday without sticking to photo albums.

1.      Create a Scrapbook
I love scrapbooks! I remember I created my first one in Australia, and collected things like leaflets, travel tickets and, as gross as this is, wool from a sheep that I sheared at an Australian zoo. Yep, I still have it!

You can buy digital scrapbook designs online if you have absolutely no idea where to start. There are plenty of designs to choose from which is perfect if you’re a bit like me and have no creativity whatsoever.

Just make sure you actually collect things while you’re on holiday, like leaflets, and keep your travel cards too. Photos are great but you want small items that show off all the fun places that you have visited.

2.      Keep a Travel Diary
Creating daily diary entries while you’re away will give you chance to look back on your time and reflect on everything that you did. It will also help you match your photos to the correct day, if you ever need to find out.

It is on my bucket list to start keeping a diary – as much as my life makes me cry, cringe, scream, it would definitely be funny looking back on it in twenty years’ time!

3.      Print Out Your Photos
I always make sure that I order my holiday photos, rather than just throwing them all on Facebook. You never know when social media is going to die, and if it does, you won’t have any physical copies to keep hold of.

I order mine place by place, and then put a label on the front of the album to say where it is, for example, BERLIN, BARCELONA or CAMBODIA. It makes it so much easier finding photos when they are labelled.

4.      Collect Something
One of my aunties collects a magnet every time she is away, her fridge is absolutely filled with colours, fun and memories of great holidays.

There are plenty of things that you can collect, for example, postcards, coins, or even little key rings.

5.      Start a Blog
I originally started my blog because of a uni project, but there have been so many times that I have referred to certain things that I have published.

I often forget about random things that happened, and putting them in a blog pretty much straight away allows me to check back on them and reminisce on happy times.

Blogs are so easy to set up too, and free. Plus, you’ll be able to access it wherever you go. Who knows, maybe you could even earn some money from writing about your experiences.
