As it has become easier to take photos on your journeys, it has become just as easy to ignore them, letting them gather digital dust on your phone, on a hard drive or in the Cloud.
Stepping back from travelling for a while gives you the chance to finally sort them out and keep your travel memories alive.
You could start by simply organising them into albums on your photo app, sorting out the dross from your favs.
From there, you could create slideshows to delight your homebound friends and family. Or turn the best pics from each trip into a beautiful scrapbook, or a photobook using an online service like Cewe. That way, your travel memories are always within easy reach on your bookshelf.
You could also share them on social media, creating an Instagram account to show off your favourites to the world. If you do, remember to use the hashtag #WishIWasThere, part of Wanderlust’s online campaign to celebrate the joys of travel and support the fantastic companies that help us experience it.
Sorting through your photos is guaranteed to bring back great memories and rev you up for your next trip. And who knows, you might find a few good enough to enter into our annual Travel Photo of the Year competition!
