Gone are the days of the simple photo album. Thanks to the rise of digital photography, we have many more creative ways for displaying our travel photographs. Check out these five inspirations for printing, framing, binding and blowing up your favorites photos.

1. Instant-Retro

3. Think Large Scale
Make a statement piece out of your favorite photos from your trip. Photoshowercurtain.com can take any high resolution image and recreate it on a waterproof shower curtain fabric in a 2-4 weeks! via Custom Printed Shower Curtains from Your Digital Photos

4. Create a Hallway Gallery
Hallways are the perfect place to create photo galleries. The wall space is begging to be used and there is always guaranteed foot traffic. Take your favorite pictures, turn them into black and whites or play with the saturation and turn your hallway into a walk down memory lane. via Stylish Ideas for Displaying Family Photos.

5. Hang them High
