Travel Tips

While sitting down to scrapbook and fill photo albums may be a thing of the past, it’s still important to document family travels and childhood memories. Building an online profile of shared moments with your family and friends doesn’t always require social media.

Skip the mainstream newsfeeds, advertisements and spam and go right to JamBios, a memory gallery for you to share with your nearest and dearest.

JamBios is essentially an online photo album allowing users to upload photos and include details about their shared memories with loved ones. JamBios holds your childhood memories, family photos and travel moments all in one place in an e-book format allowing fellow family and friends you share your album with to easily read through and enjoy your memory book.

Whether scanning old prints onto your desktop or unloading hundreds of images from your phone, JamBios acts as a hub for precious memories while showcasing your favorite family memories.

The memory book can be as extensive or simple as you make it. Upload childhood photos, first day of school pictures, images of fellow family members, various cars and houses you’ve been through and anything else you can think of to build the ultimate memory album.

Collaborate with family and friends and add on from hundreds of chapter topics. Inviting friends and family members to contribute to the album with photos and text of their own enriches the process and adds life to the memories. Help identify those unknown family photos left behind from distant relatives with the help of the family or contribute to another album with your own. It can be a fun way to connect with distant relatives, old friends and dive deeper with current relationships.

JamBios is free to use and easily shared and accessed. Set up an account using your name and email, share with loved ones and log in and check on your book as frequently as you want. No swiping — just reading, writing and sharing.

In addition to acting as an online library for your photos, JamBios includes a little help with writer’s block. Don’t worry about the perfect caption every time, Monty, the “bumbling biographer,” helps users come up with the right thing to say when stumped on a photo.

Get the kids involved and enjoy the process of sharing your family heritage and childhood memories while making some new ones.

How to Find the Best Gelato (And Spot the Fake Stuff) on Your Travels Through Rome

Rome is a city full of musts for visitors. You must visit the Colosseum, the Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps. And the list goes on, all the way down to trying gelato. No trip to Rome would be complete without the obligatory sweet treat, and for good reason. Gelato is delicious, refreshing and it comes in every flavor you can imagine.
