As someone who truly believes in the importance of work-life balance, I make sure that I set aside time for relaxing and having fun, as well as doing work. Travelling is one of the ways to refresh and recharge. From the adventures in places that are far from home like Bali, to the adventures here in my own city, there’s always something unique and memorable in each holiday. From photobook to postcards, there are many ways to preserve your travel memories.
That being said, sometimes the busy life and packed schedule makes printing photos a bit trickier, as there are more things on the to-do list with higher priorities. But with an online printing service, it actually takes a lot less time and hassle to print these travel photos. What’s more, there are more choices than just photo prints to bring your travel memories to life. Here are a few ideas of what you can do with your travel photos.
If you’d like to keep detailed memories of your travel experiences, a photobook might be the best option for you. Not only do you get to print your photos, but you can set the layout and add text however you want it. Adding text will surely help you tell the story of your travel, and keep some extra memories that were missed by the camera. Whether you choose to arrange your photos chronologically to remember your travel just the way you experienced it, or if you prefer to arrange it according to a theme or highlights, a photobook is a perfect way to preserve your travel memories for yourself.
The most versatile, and probably the easiest way to get your travel photos, is square prints. You can get as creative as you’d like with the square prints, from making a travel gallery wall, to creating a scrapbook where you can write down your fondest travel memories. The choice is yours.
Postcards are classic items for travelling that you can also use as souvenirs. Rather than buying postcards with someone else’s photo on it, why not use your own photos? Printing postcards with your travel photos is not difficult at all. What’s even better is that you can write the story of each photo behind the postcard, either to keep for yourself or to send to your loved ones. Epic stories need to be written down and read.
This is something every traveler will appreciate: a handy notebook to keep travel organised. Its use isn’t limited to travel-related things as you can use this to jot down everything from ideas to your to-do list. Having a notebook with your own travel photo will not only make it feel more personal, but it can also remind you of the good time you had during your travel.
Sometimes, the best stories and memories need to be shared with your loved ones, and why not do so with your own photos? You can pick your favorite photo(s) to be printed and hung up on the wall. There are various types of wall art you can choose: from canvas prints, mounted prints, to posters – you are not short on options. If you’re up for a challenge, how about making a series of wall art from your travel? For example, if you’re a culinary junkie, you can make a series of unique dishes you found during your travel. Or if you’re into buildings and architecture, you can make a series of interesting buildings from different cities that you’ve visited. You can be sure that there will be many stories that can be told from these photos.
I hope these ideas can help you get creative with your travel photos! Don’t let them gather dust as your memories are too precious for that!
