Over the past few months, I’ve been looking for a good way to document all my adventures. My blog is a great place in a digital sense, but I always like to have a physical memory of a place to save and look through. So – I’m super excited to share my newfound way of storing and sharing trips!
The Struggle is Real
In the past, after every single trip I’ve gone on, I’ve printed 4×6 photos and put them into an album. This took HELLA time and money and I was only able to capture photos. And truthfully, I have been running out of space in my little townhome for all these giant photo albums.
Another thing I noticed throughout this process – photos are just one way of capturing memories. I love writing and telling stories about my travel so, why couldn’t I find a way to add those into my archive?
Enter: Travel Diaries
Travel Diaries allows you to capture your travels in a digital diary – both in stories and photos. There are different layouts and style options, and you can even add different personalizations like maps to your book. Their online editor is a drag and drop, so easy to use. When finished, you can order a printed copy of your travel journal, with a personalized paperback cover or hard cover.
In addition – and probably the coolest part – each chapter can be shared as a blog if you want to share the love of your travels with friends and family. (Pssst! I love this because if you don’t have a blog like me and you have family all over the country, it can be hard to share your photos and stories easily!)
What I love about this app is that I can bring my travels to life in an inexpensive way. And also… you can save 20% by using my code.
I started with my Grand Tetons road trip that we took earlier this summer. We saw everything from the North Dakota bison roaming around Theodore Roosevelt National Park, to a tiny black bear hanging out outside of Grand Teton National Park, to my very first geyser and hot springs experience at Yellowstone. Plus, we had some laughs and many, many road trip question games. It was fun to build the book and document all the adventures we had.
