One of the hardest things about coming back from a holiday is that all those great experiences become memories which face all too soon. You can only tell your travel adventure stories so many times before it will start annoying people, so how can you keep all those precious moments fresh in your mind?
To that end we’ve put together a little list of a few possible solutions for exactly that problem, easy ways to insert those memories in your day to day life without being intrusive, but invaluable for beating those post holiday blues. Some suitable for work, some for home, but all of them will be perfect for giving you a little pick me up when it seems like you’ve spent too long on home ground and your feet are starting to get itchy again.
Create a Custom Screensaver
With everyone using digital cameras these days, everything is on your computer. All your images and videos from your trips, waiting to remind you of all the good times. One huge benefit of this is how easily you can then create yourself a custom slideshow screensaver on your computer, at home or at work, of all your favourite holiday shots. Whenever you pop away from the desk for a quick coffee break or lunch, you’ll be greeted by your favourite snaps, which will be a great little reminder of things to come. It can also be a good conversation starter if you’re new in the office or haven’t made any connections yet, as people might see they’ve been to the same place as you and there is nothing quite as good for a conversation as a shared experience.
Go Old School with a Photo Album
The one very small downside to digital, is there is no physical copy of your photos as there used to be with film. You can get past that very easily though with any number of photo printing services. A lot of places do it in store, or you could pick out the shots you like and email them off to a service that will then post the end result to you. Then just find yourself a nice photo album, fill it up with your favourites and you’ve got a great coffee table conversation starter, which also keeps your travel memories fresh.
Create a Canvas Print Collage
Another way to use printed digital photos is to find a few of your best and order a canvas photo collage. You’ll get a super high quality canvas print over a wooden frame, all ready to be hung up on a wall in a visible spot. Hang it somewhere you’ll see it often, and never worry about your holiday memories fading.
