No Place Like Home: Five Ways to Write In an Engaging Way About Your Home Town

The first few months were so romantic. Dinner at all the best restaurants, drinks in all the coolest bars and moonlit walks along cobbled streets.

Sound familiar? It probably does if you’re a travel writer trying to write a piece about your home town. The day-to-day routine of living in a busy metropolis can turn the bright spark that made you fall for a city into a damp squib.

How can we rekindle the magic that once made our stomping ground so alluring? How can we write as if seeing the highlights of our city for the first time? Here are some tips from the experienced travel writers at World Words.

Lake Garda: Italy’s Shimmering Jewel

We’ve always had a soft spot for the Italian Lakes (natural beauty, sleepy lakeside villages, watersports and gelato – what’s not to like?), so when holiday home rental agency Discover Lake Garda approached us to write travel web copy about one of Northern Italy’s most beloved holiday destinations, we were more than happy to oblige.

We wanted to provide potential holidaymakers with an informative overview of the popular Italian holiday spot, including a brief history of the region. We also wanted to help visitors differentiate between the many resort towns on the lake, as well as offering basic travel and transport advice for the area.

Ever wondered where to go in Lake Garda? Wonder no more. Our overview will help you get oriented with the great lake, explaining the differences between the northern and southern regions and covering the main holiday towns around the lake’s edge including Garda, Riva del Garda and Bardolino.
