Now the days are getting darker and greyer, and although that stirs excitement in me, right now feels like the perfect time to sit back with a cup of tea and go through your holiday photos.
Probably with a few biscuits too – they already have the Christmas boxes in supermarkets. We are only human. After all.
My holiday, my road trip around Europe, happened in April and I’m yet to print the photos even though my friend bought me the perfect Up photo album for it. So with these middle months between Summer and Christmas, the months where you get shit done, I will fill that album up.
Meanwhile, I am going to share a little travel idea that my partner and I have been doing since we have been together.
One photo for each place we’ve visited
Simple as that. We took a photo for each place we travelled and to prevent me feeling pressured (and therefore not doing it) it is more so we see how much we’ve changed rather us standing outside famous monuments. We can Google them anyway.
Almost all of them were taken on timer, placed on bins or walls, encase you were questioning some camera angles or focusing.
Each photo is then labelled.
I am so glad we started it – literally a month after we got together – otherwise it never would have happened.
Not to say you can’t start now! It’s really easy to be honest, just choosing one photo from a place.
This photo album is filled up and is sitting happily on my shelf. I recently bought our next one, from Wilko, which is a little bigger this time and I need to put in our photos from our camping trips this summer. It’s just wicked to think that one day we might have a shelf full of photo albums of places we’ve been, and we will look back and thank our 2016 selves for deciding to start it, not knowing what places we were going to visit. Thank you 24 year old Emily – even a year and a half on I’m thankful.
Oh this idea is just so perfect for the sentimental or those who love documenting. To be honest they might be the same people anyway?!
