I don't think there are any other photos you come back to with such a smile than those from your travels. And if the photos have a unique setting with a story in the background, there is nothing left to do but sit down and relive the memories. Would you like to create a holiday souvenir with similar emotions? Nothing simpler! All you need is a little time to design your photo book and a few inspirational travel quotes... which we have collected for you in the article below.

Journey quotes in photo book

Captioning photos has a history almost as long as photography itself. There's nothing strange about it. Time just likes to obliterate favourite moments so it’s worth holding it back a bit and, apart from keeping the moments traditionally in a frame, giving them an original caption, too.

Usually dates and places are written down on the photos, but there are also some fragments of dialogues which led to an outburst of laughter and were captured by the photographer. Quotes are also a great idea - your favourite ones, from films and books, as well as those referring to the situation captured in the photo. A friend's wedding, school yearbooks with humorous captions of who, how and where, a holiday of a lifetime... each of these circumstances deserves a unique sentence. Especially the last example shows the power of a caption - after all, there are few duos as successful as a photo from a good trip and a memorable inspirational journey quote. Use it!

How do I include journey quotes in a photo book/photo album?

But what do you mean - quotes about journey and destination in a photo book? It's probably a lot of extra work, not to mention the fact that not all handwriting is legible. Luckily, you can enter your favourite journey quotes in the online editor while you are creating your photo book. All you need to do is select the text option on the left-hand side of the editor during the design process. Do you want a handwritten or printed quote? Small or across the page? The editor is where you will find everything you need to make your quotes about journey and destination unique.

Apart from the classic journey-together quotes you can also put another important question in the book, the one you would expect a YES answer to... We’re not trying to encourage you to do anything, of course - but it's a good idea if you lack ideas in this matter!
