With Polarsteps you create a timeline of the places you've been. At each place you can then add your own photos and texts. This way you map your trip and you can easily share everything with the home front. Then they don't have to constantly ask where you are.
To do this, you must first create a free account with Polarsteps and download the app. You can also choose to create your own travel blog. Or cooperate with Kvntravel.nl.
Is Polarsteps really better than your own travel blog? No, not necessarily. It is quick to set up and use. You have no control over how it looks visually.
I myself use Polarsteps to keep track of the route with short notes. I will use this to share it with you later. In the app you can see the route and the report at a glance.
Polarsteps also helps you post memories about your trip so you don't forget. If you have your own travel blog, it may happen that you forget it because of all the impressions.
Polarsteps is available for free for iPhone and Android.
Photo book of your trip
The best thing is, when you have finished your trip or your Polarsteps you can print a Travel Book from your profile. This is not mandatory, but is an option. In such a Travel Book all your statistics, texts and photos are printed in a nice way.
You see, as it were, your timeline and photos in a book. Normally you pay € 30 for a 24 page Photobook (this is the cheapest option, you can also make a book of about 300 pages but you pay a little more for this).
