The best thing about vacation and family trips during holiday season is the excitement level that each member experiences. Planning the details of the trips from booking the tickets to arranging the tours, hotels, transportation, sightseeing etc. can be exhausting as well as exciting. While planning the details of your trip, one thing that needs equal importance & attention is that how you are going to ensure that you get all of your precious travel photographs safely home.
We have heard many stories about how people have lost their travel photos due to a variety of reasons ranging from memory card failures to stolen or lost equipment, theft and all. While not all circumstances can be avoided, but yes, you can take some preventive measures to make sure all your travel photos get home safely.
Computer Backups : Carrying a laptop to wherever you travel is not always possible. Specially for the ones planning to travel light. Added complications to the laptop solution revolve around security. Not all hotels will offer adequate security to ensure your peace of mind about leaving your laptop behind for the day. So, it is a wise decision to retain your travel photos onto original memory cards and store them in a separate place in your luggage and carry only empty cards with you.
Online Backup : If at all you decide to carry a laptop with you and have an internet access, the moment you reach your hotel, backup your photos to multiple online locations like Flickr, Google Drive, Dropbox, Amazon S3 etc. You can use a photo uploader / backup tool to upload all your travel photos to your online accounts in one go.
Portable storage Drive : These portable storage drives do not need any laptop or internet connection to backup your photos. These are the portable memory card viewer/reader storage devices that have several gigabytes of storage and are capable of reading, storing and viewing most types of memory cards. But these devices are a little expensive as these devices are capable of reading and displaying RAW format from most camera manufacturers. Plus they offer you great storage space.
