Travel/vacation photos are a challenge to scrap because one tends to take a gazillion photos. And you really want to document everything, right?
Hold your horses. Not everything needs to be documented.
When you stick to the photos that tell a story, there are way fewer photos to scrap. Really.
I'll let you cheat off my travel stories from a 2013 trip to Taiwan...*winks*
|The story about the red bean cake|
The whole point about travel is to enjoy the experience, not tediously documenting every single waking moment in another country/city. Have I missed capturing certain moments on camera because I was busy enjoying myself in THAT particular moment? Yep.
|By the sea|
Let's face it. Not every family vacation day is going to be exciting. Some are chillax days like this one where the highlight of my day was meeting the cute doggy [who reminded me of my doggies in doggy heaven].
|The one about the cabbage and pork place|
Sometimes you remember a place because of some inside joke between you and your travel companions. My sister and I visited the Palace Museum in Taipei to see the two famous exhibits - a piece of jade shaped like a piece of cabbage and a piece of rock shaped like a piece of fatty pork. Photo-taking wasn't allowed in the museum so I scrapped photos we took outside the museum.
|We like to play pretend|
Well, you know my family is always up for some fun. *winks* We have very few photos where everyone is posed nicely and smiling at the camera. But I LOVE to flip through my scrapbooks and laughing all over again. Afterall, scrapbooks are to document how you've lived right?
|I've been checking you out|
This one actually features the funny story about the search for a birthday cake.
|Looks can be deceiving|
6. Scrap the process of eating the food.
Okay, so this whole family vacation actually features eating. If you've ever visited Taiwan, you will know what I mean - the street food is cheap and yummy!
|The squid squad|
The pictures tell the whole story. These photos still crack me up! :)
|We love our cultured milk drink|
We were terribly excited when we spotted the family-sized probiotic drink at a supermarket because we only get the small ones in Singapore. And of course, my sister's expression while holding the bottle is priceless! *lol*
|The NT$19 store|
One of the most enjoyable parts of travelling is of course, bringing a piece [or more] of the place back home with you...you know...through stuff..*winks* But sometimes, it's the things that we didn't buy that leave the most lasting impression.
There you have it. 9 ways to scrap travel photos. Hope you will tackle that ginormous pile of travel photos you have. :)
