Creating Virtual Travel Scrapbooks Is Just A Snap With Instagram

#EverydayWithInstagram is now more Fun!

As someone who likes to save up and go traveling in my downtime, saving every bit of cash helps. I like documenting my trips, but I also want to stay connected in real time with my friends and family, so I end up spending quite a bit on data charges.

Instagram (follow me @melovillareal) is one of my favorite apps for sharing photos of my adventures, but all that usage does have a price—and I ended up ditching it for a while so I could use that money on other planned travel expenses.

This was especially a hassle as I was planning to curate a photo collection of my trips for the entire year—the hashtag #EverydayWithTravel would’ve been so fitting, and it would’ve been so memorable as this was definitely my Eat, Pray, Love year of spontaneous flights and unplanned backpacking weekends.

Yes, I could use a digicam—but then I would have to upload the photos to a computer before I can even edit and upload them. That would probably only be possible when I’m back home, and by then there’s really no point in posting since I can just show people the pictures on the camera itself.

That’s why when Smart came out with its Free Instragram deal (more details, I no longer had to delay keeping track of all my fun memories on my favorite app—I just hopped over to the store right away to make sure my subscription is updated, and I’ve been happy with it ever since.

This will allow subscribers to freely browse their Instragram feeds and upload their own photos and videos from their smartphones without additional data charges—so no more worrying about the bill when I come back from some exotic beach!
