5 wonderful ways to enjoy your travel memories and keep them alive
So you’re heading home, it’s been an amazing experience, and travelling has opened your eyes, pushed you out of your comfort zone and helped you to make new friends for life. Travelling has also given you plenty of new memories, all captured on your camera, in your taste buds, in your passport and in your mind. So, now you’re heading back home, how can you keep those memories alive?
Forget fridge magnets, mugs and all those cheesy souvenirs that only gather dust under your bed. Here we share five wonderful ways you can enjoy your travel memories.
Of course, you’ve captured some amazing moments on your travels. From perfectly timed selfies to beautifully candid shots that remind you of a particular moment of your time on the road. So, it would be a shame to leave them locked away in a digital world.
Instead, bring them to life with a beautiful canvas print. You can buy a canvas print here, just click the link. Canvas prints are a stunning way to fill those blank spaces on your walls and make your most treasured moments a daily treat in your home.
Create your own travel movie
Ok, so it may sound a little corny but what else are you going to do with all those segments of beautiful – yet disjointed – footage? You may have many hours’ worth of gorgeous sunsets, sightseeing and breathtaking moments that highlight the best parts of your trip.
Again, leaving them locked inside your phone is such a waste. Instead, download a free video editing software and put on your director’s hat. You can choose a great soundtrack, create titles and then enjoy your very own travel movie whenever you wish. Popcorn anyone?
A travel journal
This suggestion is really something to keep in mind before you travel, or you could try it on your inevitable next trip. A travel journal is an intimate and personal reflection of your trips.
While stunning images and flashy moments are great, a travel journal allows you to look back on your feelings at the time by putting pen to paper. Take it with you everywhere you go, and you can add to it as soon as something memorable happens. You don’t have to share everything online.
A travel scrapbook
Who doesn’t look scrapbooking? If you have plenty of unused currencies still stuck in your wallet, old train tickets, business cards from hostels around the world, trinkets, photos and other bits and bobs, then you could create a stunning travel scrapbook. It’s a wonderful way to document your adventures. You’ll just need a scrapbook, glue, washi tape, stickers etc to bring your travel memories to life.
A memory box
If scrapbooking isn’t your thing, then don’t worry. How about putting all your travel items into your very own memory box? Special photographs, written notes, receipts, bottles of sand, postcards and coins…the possibilities are endless. You can decorate your own box or pick one up specifically for travel memorabilia online.
