Our tips for the best photos to send on postcards are:

  • The Basics
    Blurry photos are never good, whether online or printed out! To ensure that your photos are the best they can be, hold the camera steady and take your time! If possible, make sure they are well lit; dark photos can be hard to fix, no matter how pretty the filter is. Also, if you’re taking photos of people, make sure eyes are open and there’s big smiles on faces. You are on holiday after all! Who wants to look miserable on holiday? 
  • Get Inspired!
    There’s no shame in seeing where the top locations and sights are in the city you’re stopping off at. Head online to places like Instagram or Pinterest for those picture-perfect locations that everyone wants to see or take a wander around the city to find the prettiest places to snap! If you’re on board, there’s all sorts to see and do while at sea, so remember to keep your camera on you at all times to capture all the excitement!


  • Keep It Interesting!
    You’re travelling the world! Go tick off your bucket lists and have the photographic evidence to prove it. Snap things that only you can see in the place you’re in! Whether that’s a Singapore Skyline or Roman Ruins, no matter where you are, there’s always something you can show back home that you’ve never seen before.




3. Make your postcard!

When you head back on board or wherever you go for your dose of wifi, remember to send a postcard! With PostSnap you can use photos from your camera roll but also use your Facebook and Instagram photos to create the perfect postcard!

How to make an Easter chocolate mocktail

Easter chocolate mocktailChocolate is one of many wondrous inventions we have gifted to ourselves. Some may say it’s a creation worthy of celebration on par with other genius inventions, such as electricity, motor vehicles or Tipex…

Easter is a time many of us choose to indulge in chocolate. But if Easter eggs aren’t your chocolate-style, then perhaps give one of the below ‘choctails’ a try!

Unwanted Easter eggs are easily made into tasty mocktails and cocktails – something any true chocoholic would enjoy.

  1. Chocolate martini mocktail ?
    Just goes to show that anything can become a ‘martini’ if served in a martini glass.
    Simply whizz together the below ingredients in a blender, with quantities at your own discretion. ?Easter chocolate mockail martini
  • Chocolate or vanilla ice cream – invest in a quality brand for a creamier texture
  • Milk
  • Hot chocolate powder – I recommend a traditional swiss chocolate brand for a richer taste
  • Parts of your favourite chocolate egg
  • Ice

For the rim of the martini glass, dip in melted chocolate (or just dampen with water) and then dip in chocolate powder. Then pour the above mixture in, and top with cream, sprinkles and/or marshmallows – or plop a strawberry on top to make yourself feel a bit better. ?

2. Vegan chocolate cinnamon mocktailCinnamon chocolate easter mocktail
If you can’t have dairy, you don’t have to miss out on chocolate over Easter. Get your blender out of the cupboard and give this recipe a go!

  • Rice milk or soy milk (or hazelnut, almond or coconut milk if you want to have a taste sensation)
  • Green & Blacks hot chocolate powder (dairy-free)
  • Two overripe bananas (if desired, for a banana-chocolate taste)
  • Pinch of cinnamon

Be sure to grate some of your favourite dark chocolate on top!

3. Chocolate Baileys cocktail 
Ice chocolate easterIf you’re not fancying a mocktail, spice it up with an alcoholic version. I recommend using the leftover Baileys from Christmas – they have an extraordinarily long shelf life even after opening, so no need to chuck them yet!

  • One scoop of vanilla ice cream (chocolate flavour may be too overwhelming)
  • Chocolate Baileys – or try the orange-chocolate flavour if you can still find it!
  • Milk (you shouldn’t need too much though)
  • Your favourite hot chocolate powder or parts of your favourite chocolate egg
  • Lots of ice!

Get experimenting with the quantities to your preferred taste, and get blending!

? Have a fantastic Easter weekend (April 14 – 17, 2017) ?
