Catching Memories While Travelling with Destination2

Wednesday, September 06, 2017
Last week I was lucky enough to be in the incredibly beautiful country of Norway on a cruise with my family! Norway was utterly stunning especially the cities of Olden and Flaam with their breathtaking glaciers, lakes and fjords. I'll have at least a couple of posts coming soon with photos and a few clips from my trip to Norway.

Even before blogging I was one of those people who can't go on holiday without taking a couple of thousand photos *I'm not exaggerating* and it hasn't been helped by being part of the online and blogging community where every moment needs to be captured. This lifestyle and way of thinking may be positive and negative but I always view it as a positive as it means that moments are captured and can be remembered over and over as well as being shared with others.
So for my trip to Norway, I came prepared and ready to take as many photos as I could and to try to capture just how stunning, unreal and beautiful Norway is. These photos are just a couple of examples as I took over 2,000...and you'll see more of my favourites in the next week or so. Here are a couple of tips for capturing special holiday moments:

- The first is the most basic but it's also the most important and that's to have your camera battery and your phone battery fully charged for the day as there's nothing more frustrating than wanting to take a gorgeous or special photo and not being able to! Maybe you could invest in a second camera battery?

- Memory space is another thing to consider and before I went on holiday I deleted so many unnecessary photos and videos from my phone - why did I think that I needed so many food photos, screenshots of dresses and holiday photos from 2010 on my phone...

- Spontaneous photos are always the best so look out for those moments and you might end up with a few photos that you'll love...or hate forever. We have a few from our holiday to Norway that we can't stop laughing at every time we see them, let's just say that they involve luminous orange lifejackets.
Destination2 have found that "29% admit to leaving snaps on the computer. A further 29% admit to not doing anything with them at all while over 14% go as far as putting them in a separate folder on their phone" and I have to admit that I am one of those people sometimes but I also love to print special photos.

I've had holiday photos printed onto acrylic, keyrings and notebooks with the lovely people at Snapfish UK and holiday photos printed onto magnets as well with Cheerz. You can also turn special photos into more unusual products such as tea towels and mugs with Wrappz which would make great Christmas gifts...

I didn't even wait for a few days since getting back from Norway before looking into cheap holiday deals to Norway, Iceland, Paris and Greece! If you have any travel recommendations then let me know or if you have ideas for photo printing then leave a comment below!

Do you like to take lots of photos on holiday or not? Are you guilty of leaving holiday photos and not doing anything with them?
