It seems such a long time since we packed the camper van and headed off on a road trip with our T5 campervan bursting to the seams. We have some wonderful memories from our previous road trips and some incredible photos that I have been keen to get printed. Read on for our My-Picture.co.uk review
A road trip with kids does not come without is challenges, but with thoughtful packing, clever storage ideas and careful planning, it is possible to enjoy a long roadtrip in a VW T5 camper as a family of five.
We have enjoyed some wonderful road trips, our last road trip we headed down the West coast of France and into Spain. Our road trip lasted about three weeks, stopping off in Brittany, exploring the Vendée, spending time on Ilé de Ré before heading down to the South and into Spain. The campsites we stayed at were incredible, and with the added bonus of Sunshine the road trip was probably one of the highlights of vanlife with the kids.
My-Picture.co.uk is a European printing service offering a range of printing solutions at competitive prices. I would argue that many of us are guilty of not printing our images. I often share them on my Instagram and Facebook accounts, but never physically print out my favourite images. When My-Picture got in touch with me and offered to print my favourite image I didn’t hesitate to have my favourite photo printed from our van life adventures.
With My-Picture.co.uk your favourite photo can be printed in many different formats, from a canvas, acrylic, framed photos, to bags, cushions or blankets… the choice is yours.
I went for a framed photo in black matte and it is absolutely beautiful.
The image that I used is one from our summer road trip. It has rained all day and in the evening, we spied a break in the rain and headed down to the beach at La Paz in Spain to be met with the most incredible sunset.
The photo was taken with my Olympus Pen. I used photoshop to straighten the skyline but did not alter the colours of the sunset.
The ordering process is incredibly quick and straighforward. Head over to the website, choose your product and upload your image. Once your image is uploaded, the website automatically selects the largest size your file can produce, but you can also choose a smaller version if required, simply select your requirement.
You can then go on to choose your effect – keep it in colour or change to black and white. There is also an option to add text if you wish.
Checkout your order (once you are happy) and make a payment online. Once the order has been made you can track delivery. When the item arrived it was extremely well packaged and the print was protected from damage in transit, therefore it arrived in immaculate condition.
I opted for a framed photo in size 60×40. Framed photos come in a number of options; Vintage silver, Black matte, White, Walnut flair and Oak vintage flair. I went for the black matte frame to complement our room and bring out the colours of the sunset.

My-Picture.co.uk review: verdict
I am so pleased with my framed print, the ordering process was very straightforward and I am thrilled with the quality. I have a few more favourite photos from our vanlife adventures that I want to have framed and I love the black matte frame and the quality of the frame. In summary – I wouldn’t hesitate to order again from My-Picture.co.uk.
