Once you’ve returned from your family holiday and sorted through those excellent shots, it’s time to enjoy them. While it’s great that technology has made it possible to look at all our pictures at any time, sometimes that’s just not the same as holding pictures in your hands – in the real world, no bytes involved. There are some great ways to use your travel photos, for instance:
It’s simple, it’s fast, and it’s pretty: get some cheap ink cartridges, print out your photos and use them to decorate your home. There are lots of ways to do so: Use picture frames or create a collage or create a world map with your travel photos! The possibilities are endless and you always get to look at them and remember the places you’ve been. It’s like a little holiday from the everyday madness.
Create a collage
Collages look great, especially if they are themed. The fact that you can use any materials to create them means that they are usually very cheap to make. All you really need is a creative eye and a way of attaching each element of the collage to the wall. If you have never created a collage before, start small. Take a board of plywood and use Blu-Tack to lay everything out and see how it looks. Once you have come up with a design you like you can just transfer everything to your wall.
Get a photo book
It’s a classic that will always be in style: Create a photo book to tell whole stories about the places you’ve been and the things you’ve seen! It’s not only a great way to keep those memories fresh but also a wonderful gift for your immediate family. There are many sites that offer photo books and also help you find the right product for your needs.
Isn’t it wonderful to live in a world where practically everything is customisable? From smartphone covers to keychains or even pillow covers: You can put your photo on almost anything. That means that you can have your favourite family travel picture with you at all times and thus remember those special moments away wherever you are, outside of your phone.
So there it is: There are many ways to make your travel photos count. The photos are simply a wonderful reminder of what you’ve seen and can give you the chance to dream yourself back to those places.
