DIY // Travel Display Ideas

As I think I've mentioned, I spent half of my junior year abroad, living in Denmark and traveling around Europe. Since then, I've gone on a couple of other big trips.  Typically, my souvenirs are actually what most other people would consider trash, so I end up coming home looking like a scary hoarder. I also, like most people, take lots of pictures.  In decorating my apartment, I really wanted to showcase my travel, because I love it, without looking like a showoff. Here's what I came up with - 

Place Boxes // This is for my hoarding tendencies.  I bought photoboxes at Christmas Tree Shops, painted them in my favorite colors, then stenciled the name of the places I visited on them.  Inside each are tickets/stubs/maps/brochures/receipts/napkins.  Basically, anything and everything from the trip. I love to go back through each and remember the specifics of the days, not just the overall trip.

Photo Displays // I typically take tons of pictures on vacation, both on my phone and with my good camera.  Like everyone else, it's pretty fun to display them. I used this site to make the instagram poster, and I chose two images from my trip to Cornwall, England to get printed in a higher res.  I don't love to pick really obvious travel images (Eiffel Tower, London Bridge, Colosseum), but instead ones that I took in places I loved or from days I want to remember.

Maps // I obsessively hoard maps when I travel, and have basically wallpapered one wall in my bedroom with them.  It looks really cool, and most of them have drawings or notes on them from travel, which is another fun reminder of the details of the trips.  And the scratch map is just awesome.
