Traveling is one of the secrets to a happy life. The rush of visiting a new place and experiencing different cultures and traditions can make you forget all your woes and enjoy the present. A lot of people believe in this, and they try their best to travel a lot. Even traveling for the weekend to a nearby resort or going hiking can make you feel so much better. It is the best thing to do in life, which gives us immense happiness that no clothes, shoes, or gadgets can buy you.
As adventurous and fulfilling traveling is, it comes to an end. You cannot keep on traveling unless you live a nomadic life. Even then, you take breaks, and you have to move on from a specific place. That is why we humans prefer a keepsake to reminisce later about those beautiful traveling experiences.
A lot of people buy magnets, stamps, or other souvenirs from their travels. Others love to click thousands of pictures as that is the best and easiest way to remember the memorable moments spent in a scenic location. But you do not have to stop taking pictures. There are tons of ways to save your travel memories forever. In this blog, we will discuss the same.
Create a poster
Make a collage of the favorite clicks you took on the vacation, or find one beautiful picture. Now, use an online editing tool like Canva to brush it up and use the same tool to create and print a poster. Hang it in your bedroom or living area, and you can always go back to that time.
If a poster seems like a stretch, you can also print some beautiful pictures in small sizes and frame it up. Now, set aside a wall where you can hang all your travel memories. It can be a perfect way to showcase amazing clicks from all your travel. Zoomin.com can help you get tons of prints inexpensively. But do remember to edit any picture using Canva or Photoshop before you give it for printing.
Make a video
Sometimes clicking pictures gets out of hand, and we end up having thousands of clicks. Why waste such mesmerizing images when you can make a video out of them?
Select all the pictures and use an editing tool like Premiere pro to create a video.
It is a great way to limit your travel clicks to a few minutes. Also, sharing it with family and friends is relatively easier than sharing tons of images.
Get fridge magnets for yourself and your family. It is a perfect way to keep your travel memories intact. Also, get a magnet made out of your favorite travel picture. Put it near the magnet that you got as a souvenir from your trip, and they will look great together. There are lots of websites that provide services for turning images into magnets.
Create a scrapbook
Another fabulous idea, and if you love making crafts, this is right up your alley. Every souvenir or picture that you have from your trip can find a home within a scrapbook.
You can dedicate a small and thin scrapbook to each destination if you travel frequently. Or you can have a few pages for specific travels in the scrapbook. The souvenirs can be anything- from tiny stamps or flags to a magnet to the spice sample you picked up and more. Also, write a few lines about your experience, and whenever you open this book, it will be like re-visiting the destination.
Get postcards at the place you are now and send them to your permanent resident address. It is so cool to come home and see a postcard from yourself from your travel destination. You can also buy them and put them in a travel book.
If you are great with words and have beautiful travel pictures, and are willing to share with the world, starting a blog is a perfect choice. Not only do you save your travel memories, but you get to share them with tons of people who may benefit from them.
If you start getting sponsorship or money from the blog, that is just a bonus. Right?
Keep traveling and keep saving those memories forever using these ideas!
