So, you’ve just returned from the trip of a lifetime. The memories you’ve made are going to live in your mind and heart forever. But how will you share those memories with your friends? You could just upload your photos to Facebook and call it a day, but we think these unique ways of sharing your experiences are a little bit better.
1. Turn your photos into a puzzle
Is it cheesy? Maybe a little. But we’re willing to bet your family will love putting together the pieces of your snorkelling adventure in Galapagos, and you can tell a piece of your story with each puzzle piece. Bonus: makes a great gift for any occasion, so you can take care of two things at once. Just make sure you choose wisely what photos to use and save the selfies for your Instagram. Or, post the travel selfies when you…
2. Start a travel blog
It’s an obvious one, but a blog is the best way to showcase your adventures to a wide audience. It’s even better if you start your blog before you leave and post every day while you’re away from home (if you have time, that is!) A quirky way to make your blog stand out could be to actually scan in handwritten pages of your journal and transcribe them underneath. If starting your own blog seems like a daunting task, you could always contribute a story to ours! If you’re more of a speaker than a writer, you might want to…

You’d be surprised how many opportunities there are to share your experiences at your local library. Get in touch and see if they have any program slots available, or if they’re looking for any travellers to share their journeys at a pre-scheduled event. If you’re poetic, you could describe your adventures in a spoken-word piece at an open mic. Failing that, you could always…
4. Write a song
We’ve always thought there should be more travel-themed music. An album of Britpop tributes from London to Cornwall? A symphonic dedication to Austria? A few calypso tracks describing the sheer joys of callaloo, coconut bake, & sorrel? It’s all possible, and all necessary. You never know – your travel album could end up being the soundtrack to another traveller’s adventures!
