We’ve all been there.  You spend a week living it up on the beach, exploring some exotic locale or simply having the time of your life, and then before you know it the good times come to an end.  Now you’re back at work suffering from the post vacay blues, wishing you were still away and plotting your next getaway.  It sucks…but it doesn’t have to.  If you’re looking for a way to beat the blues, then these three apps will help keep the travel fun going long after the actual vacation has ended.

Social Print Studio 

I’m obsessed with Social Print Studio. Obsessed!!  This Cali-based startup is a great way to relive travel memories in all areas of your everyday life.  Got a ton of vacation photos just sitting around?  This app lets you turn photos from your computer, phone, Instagram and Facebook into cute calendars, photo strips, books, contact cards, mini prints, buttons, posters and more!  Now you can carry your travel memories with you wherever you go!


It’s a week after your vacation and you’re feeling the blues.  Wouldn’t it be amazing to get a little reminder of all the good times you just had?  With Postagram you can create postcards using all those photos you snapped on your phone, while you’re still on vacation, and then mail the postcard you’ve created to friends, family and even yourself!  But that’s not the best part: the photo pops out of the postcard as a 3×3 photo print that you can keep!  What better way to come out of your post-vacay funk, than by receiving a postcard in the mail with a picture of your favorite moment from the trip.

Been App 

This app doesn’t have a ton of bells and whistles, but it helps you to do the main thing you want to do once you’ve returned from vacation….plot another one!  With Been App you can keep track of all the places you’ve been, while daydreaming of all the places you still need to go.  Nothing keeps the travel fun going better than thinking of the places where you can create more lifelong memories.
