Summer’s almost over and vacations are ending. So sad! But at least you can re-live it again and again with all those awesome travel photos.
At the beginning of the summer, I shared some tips on The Wetherills Say I Do for taking travel photos so you’d have something cool to do with them at the end of your trip. Whether you had an intent or not, there’s still plenty of ways to make the best of your camera roll now that you’re home and back to reality. Here are a few ideas for what to do with your travel photos.
Click through to learn what to do with your travel photos.
I love using Instagram as a travel guide, and of course for sharing photos while I’m gone. Another app you can use is Steller, which lets you incorporate your photos into awesome-looking stories and presentations. Make one and share it with your friends and family. You could also make sure to add a unique hashtag to all your photos, so they’ll all be in one spot on Instagram.
I love looking through my family’s huge boxes of photo prints, and who says I can’t create those for myself just because I take digital photos? Whether you take your memory card to the drugstore or order prints online somewhere like Shutterfly, a nice stack of photos will provide lifelong memories. You could also turn them into a photo wall in your home that you can change out or add to after each big trip!
Make a scrapbook.
And once you have the prints, you can put them together into a scrapbook. I never seem to have the patience for a project this big, but I am always envious of my friends who make gorgeous handmade scrapbooks. Save your mementos and combine them with your prints for a keepsake you will treasure forever.
Design a printed book.
No patience for scrapbooks either? I’m partial to the services that let you create books from your digital images. I love the ones from Chatbooks — get your first one free with the code 4J3H3UAJ — but there are so many out there, you can’t go wrong!
Write a blog post.
If you’re a blogger, you might consider sharing your travels with your readers. Tailor your post so that it still makes sense with your content. Food blogger? Make a recipe inspired by your trip. Style blogger? Show off a new piece from your trip or the fashions you wore while traveling. Lifestyle blogger? Put your travel photos or souvenirs on display in your home and photograph it.
