Create a Travel Scrapbook 

A travel scrapbook is a compilation of photos and mementos to preserve your memories. Don’t be confused with a travel-themed photo album. A photo book is simpler with it being just a collection of photos printed into a book, while a scrapbook allows you to be more creative where you put the pictures on the pages yourself. 

Start small and gather your memories. It’s also great to have a travel journal so you can revisit your thoughts in those moments. Start with putting the pictures on the pages and then add designs. You can also put short comments about your trip to make it more fun. You can even get a commemorative map from your travels and put pins in it to show the way you traveled and put it in the scrapbook.

Design DIY Magnets 

Whoever thought of a fridge magnet as a vacation souvenir is a genius! It’s useful and it reminds you of the fun times you had. Even better, you can DIY it to make it more personal. Although there’s nothing wrong with buying them, creating them yourself is a more functional way to reminisce about your trips and is more sentimental. 

You can use small tokens and souvenirs to make the DIY magnets. For example, you can take a map from your travels and cut out the part where you’ve been. You can use any of the souvenirs that you want. Be as creative as you can and create the most wonderful DIY magnets to show on your fridge.

Make a Photo Collage

Making a photo collage is another great way to cherish the memories from your trips. You can make it with a photo editing app and store it online forever,  but making a physical one gives a different feeling.  

Making a photo collage is easy. Select the photos you want to use and lay them out on your chosen material. Don’t worry about being creative or if it looks good because it does. Whether you want the design of your photo collage to be simple or grand, just trust in yourself. Trust your creativity and you will make the perfect photo collage. 

Produce Travel Vlogs or Videos

When traveling, we also take videos aside from pictures. This is a great way to relive the moments. You can share your special moments with other people through your travel vlogs or videos. 

Creating a travel vlog is easier than it seems, although it still requires effort and skills. Don’t worry, you can learn them as you practice. When traveling, you don’t have to record everything. Just focus on special moments and activities, and don’t be shy in including yourself and your travel buddies. Invest in good equipment that will capture not just your moments but also your emotions.

Use Travel Stickers

Travel stickers are fun and cute souvenirs that you can collect from various destinations you’ve been to. Collect stickers from various destinations and put them on travel-related items like suitcases or a travel journal. It would also look good on the gadgets that you bring with you all the time. You can put it on anything as long as it sticks. They are a great reminder of the fun times you had on your trips.

Collecting travel stickers is a fun way to keep track of where you’ve been. You can also give them away as souvenirs to the people you want to share them with. 

Invest in a Commemorative Map 

Nowadays, people mostly use their phones for directions. They are easier and more convenient to use, especially when driving. However, using a map gives a more traditional vibe and let’s be honest, fun. 

When traveling, get a commemorative map where the special places and events are already marked. This way, you get more idea of what to expect and prepare yourself. You can also use this as a remembrance of your trip. Or if you prefer a simpler look, you can just use a world map. Mark the places you’ve visited on the map as a visual representation of your travels and a conversation starter for guests.

Keep a Travel Journal

A travel journal is like a personal daily journal, only the former is specifically for traveling. In a travel journal, you will write down your experiences and thoughts during your travels to capture the essence of your journey in words. 

Be as expressive as you want when writing in your travel journal. It’s a personal diary and you don’t have to share it with others. You have all the freedom to write down anything and everything you want. A travel journal is perfect for trying to preserve your memories as they come from you. You can go back to it whenever you wish to revisit your trips. 

Photos, videos, and souvenirs are great as they show your memories. A travel journal shows more of your perspective on the trips. It tells your stories and how you felt in the moments that happened.
