Our Travels: Madeira

As regular readers of our blog will know, the expert travel writers and editors at World Words like to get around. Nothing makes us happier than strapping on a backpack and heading out there to discover a new place, meet new people and gain new perspectives. Nothing, that is, except for writing about the experience for our clients!

The Our Travels blog series is the place where we can share some of our most recent trips directly. In the past, we have covered our most exciting discoveries in all four corners of the world, from the cute brown bear cubs of Alaska to the majestic vultures of India, the Mayan pyramids of Guatemala to the mountaintop temples of Japan.

This month, our editor-in-chief Joe takes us to a distant corner of Europe that is capturing the hearts of more and more people: Madeira. After visiting the Portuguese archipelago in early February, Joe picks his island highlights…

Our Top Winter Travel Content: Part Two

More than a month has passed since we the first part of our top winter travel content series… so here’s part two.

Last time, we only scratched the surface of winter travel content we’ve completed for our clients, so this time we are diving a little bit deeper. We’ll start with a piece we had published on Run in the Dark Edinburgh, a night-time jogging event in the Scottish capital. Meanwhile, for anybody needing last-minute ski holiday inspiration, we have pulled out features on Canada’s Mont-Tremblant and the Swiss mountain resort Zermatt. And, because we know that some of the more forward-thinking among you may already be planning your summer escape, we have also included a destination guide we produced last year on the Languedoc region in sun-drenched southern France.

Last but not least, for those wanting to improve their written travel content in 2016, we’ve also shared some of our top editing tips with Media Kitty. So what are you waiting for? Scroll on down to read a short excerpt from each.

From the Old Course, St. Andrews to the Atacama Desert: Our Latest Website Copy

At World Words, we’re regularly asked to write website copy for our clients. In fact, aside from blogs, web copy is probably the most common type of travel content we write. And over the years, we’ve got pretty darn good at it.

The last few months, in particular, have seen us completing many interesting website content briefs. We’ve been approached by several independent tour companies looking to overhaul their website copy, and have been able to make their visions a reality. Each project has been entirely different – different services, different markets and different style requirements – but they have all had one thing in common; wanting to refresh their website content in order to improve their search rankings and increase their sales. And they’ve all been delighted with the results.
