I’m off to Las Vegas in a week, then to Los Angeles in April. My main vacation this year will be spent in Brazil where I will spend two weeks visiting Rio de Janeiro and Porto Alegre.
I usually bring my DSLR with me during my trips and I am going to take it with me when I go to Vegas and Arizona next week. I am also bringing it with me during my college reunion in Los Angeles in April. I have been advised not to take my DSLR to Brazil for safety reasons.
I love taking photos and even though my photos don’t usually include me in the picture, I like taking them to remember the places I’ve been. I was able to capture great photos during my European and Mediterranean cruises in the past two years. I’ve kept the photos in my laptop and have shared some on Instagram. I rarely have photos developed anymore since I am really bad at maintaining and organizing photo albums.
During my recent visit to Chicago, I spent time with an old friend who showed me photos of his trips in the form of “photobooks”. Have you seen those? It’s amazing! He travels more than I do and for each trip, he has a photobook holding memories better than a photo album would. He has captions and styling, multiple photos in one page or simply one beautiful photo of the location on a single page that describes the beauty of the places he has visited.
I thought, that’s not a bad idea after all. I could gather photos from my trip and send it off. It will come back to me in photobook format and I can easily showcase my trips to people who visit me at the house or take it to parties and share it with friends.
And what did I say about purchasing anything online? COUPONS! It saves you more money than you think. So, I decided to look for a snapfish coupon code or shutterfly coupon code in my quest to find the best deal in having my photos compiled in a photobook. I found out that these companies not only make photobooks but calendars and other items as well!
I now have to group all my photos and send it off. I’m super excited to see the end result!
