Travel tip 5

take a slice of home with you

Don't forget to make time for some things you love to photograph at home. If you love street photography, make sure you shoot some when you're away. If you're a portrait fan, find a local character for a picture. Explore the local flowers if you are an avid macro shooter.

It's great to put your photography center-stage now and again, rather than snap pictures while you're something else. Often it's photos like this that bring the memories flooding back.
