5 Creative Ways To Cherish Your Travel Memories.

by | Jul 18, 2019 | How To, Inspiration, Tips and Tricks

Whether you’re an avid globetrotter or a travel hobbyist, getting to experience fun, joyful and adventurous moments are all part and parcel of going on holiday. You’ll get to experience new places, sample different foods, meet people from different walks of life and if you’re travelling with friends or family, you’ll also get to make wonderful memories with them. 

But have you ever wondered what else you could do in order to preserve those memories creatively?

If the answer is ‘yes’ (we’ll even take a ‘maybe’ at this point), then you’re going to want to read on. In today’s blog, we hope to inspire you to consider some of these creative ideas in order to preserve your wonderful travel moments more creatively.

Consider the Photo Book.

Just imagine, you went on an island vacation and came across a beautiful scenery – a startling orange sunset sinking into the horizon, breathtaking mountains mystically shrouded by a thin veil of mists or anything really, that fills you with a sense of awe and amazement. You can bet that you’ll have your camera or phones out in a heartbeat; snapping thousands of photos before uploading it onto your preferred social media sites (Instagram, facebook, twitter, etc…)

But what if there was a better way of storing those photos? You spent all that effort to take such amazing shots, so why just leave it online to become a footnote in someone else’s timeline? 

This is why you should consider organising those photos and printing them out in the form of a travel photo book. With a photo book, you can create a collage of your trips highlights, add text, stickers and even use some of the creative theme template to ensure that your travel photo book looks as impressive as a high-class magazine. Plus, you can even pick what size you want the photo book to be in order to have a unique souvenir to display and share with family and friends.

Try Photo Prints (comes with a Keepsake box)

Not sure if you’re up for making photo books? No problem! Try the Pixajoy photo prints which comes in not one, not two, but 7 Different Sizes! You can place your photo prints in an album the good old fashion way, stick them onto your wall using adhesive tape or blue tack, string them up on a piece of twine or use them to scrapbook. The possibilities are endless! 

Alternatively, you can even just get photo prints and make a collection out of your travel memories with these specialised keepsake boxes; made specifically to store the 3R & 4R sized prints.

Sounds pretty cool right! If you are a person who likes to organise your travel photos by categorising it based on occasions, dates or places, then you might want to consider getting the photo prints with keepsake box.

Opt for the Wall Gallery.

A well-seasoned traveller who is confident about their photography skills might want to consider getting a Wall Art Gallery in order to uniquely display their travel photos filled with unforgettable memories.

Besides creating a tasteful collection of Photo Books and Prints, why not dedicate a whole wall to your travel memories with the Pixajoy Wall Art Gallery. From photos of the family to your favourite spots or gorgeous scenery, turn that blank space on your wall into a travel shrine. 

You can use your creative ideas to create a beautiful wall gallery by arranging your travel photos with different sized photo frames, using a special effect to print your photos or maintain the same colour palette which will add an artistic touch to your space.

This idea of having a wall gallery is that; not only will it help you to reflect back on your travel escapades but it will also serve to inspire you to travel more. 

Counting Down with Calendars.

For those systematic souls out there who’ve been using paper calendar to book your appointments and keep track of your schedules all your life; you’re in for a real treat.

Whether you want to plan a trip or to keep you on track with daily activities, with Pixajoy you can design and personalise your own calendar with photos from your travels. It’s a great way to display your adventurous escapades and remind yourself that there’s more to life than just sitting at the office and typing away on the computer keyboard.

Just pick your favourite travel photos and arrange them to match the months on the calendar. This will remind you of all the wonderful moments you had during your travels on a particular month and will keep you in anticipation for your future trips. 

Not much of a fan of the desk calendar? At Pixajoy, there are several different types of calendars available for you to choose from. Personalise them with your travel dates as a reminder or customise them with your travel photos or text. 

Not An Ordinary Photo Notebook.

Have you ever experienced the ‘blur moment’. It happens when someone is asking you about specific details that happened on your trip but you could not, for the life of you, remember what they were. Things like, ‘what kind of food did they serve?’, ‘was the hotel kid-friendly’, ‘did it have a pool?’. All these fine details that always seems to get lost under the bigger picture of your overall travel experience.

If the answer is yes, then you definitely need a write these things down for your next trip. But instead of getting a normal notebook, why not make a personalised photo notebook filled with images from your previous travels instead.

Just think about it, no matter how good you think your memory is, there’s bound to be something you’ll inadvertently forget. It’s the curse of being mortal – go figure. So it’s always better to have a notebook specifically to document your travel adventures; kinda like a diary so that you can recall every moment in vivid details.

Plus having your travel photos on the cover of your notebooks will make ensure that you never lose track of your book while also keeping you motivated to travel to more places!
