Our Travels: Southwest Belarus

We are an extremely well-travelled bunch here at World Words. Between us, we’ve been to literally hundreds of countries in all four corners of the world (personally, I’ve been to more than 80). Of course, much of this is in the name of work, allowing us to provide comprehensive destination expertise for our clients. But some of it is simply for the pure joy of travel. After all, we all chose to be travel writers because, first and foremost, we love to travel.

This Our Travels blog series allows us to share our passion for overseas adventures directly with you. So far, we have recounted our tales from a whole host of destinations right around the world, from Quebec City to Northern Oman, Isla Canela to Alaska. And this month, we are venturing deep into previously undiscovered territory, with one of the least-visited countries in Europe (for now). So join our editor-in-chief Joe on his trip through Belarus…

At World Words, we’re big fans of Italy. All those ancient ruins, historic landmarks and cultural riches, that glorious art and architecture, fabulous fashion and family-focused culture. Not to mention the extraordinary landscapes, sunny summer weather and ski-friendly snow in winter. And of course, the superb food and wine. So when one of our clients, City Wonders, asked us to write a series of posts about Italy for their blog, we jumped at the chance.

With locations ranging from historic Venice in the north of the country to the spectacular southerly Amalfi Coast, with a whole host of memorable and iconic stops in between, we found ourselves tackling topics ranging from films to food to family travel.

Writing Clever: How to Turn One Travel Content Theme into Many Distinct Pieces

Content marketing is not a sprint but a long-haul journey. It requires you to create consistently engaging content on an ongoing basis, which means coming up with idea after idea after idea after idea – not always an easy task.

But coming up with one idea doesn’t necessarily mean only getting one piece of written travel content. In fact, if you’re only getting a single article, blog or other piece of travel content out of each idea that springs to mind, you are wasting your time. Of course, every piece you write must be original and distinctive, but this blog will explain how a single lightbulb moment can light up a whole room full of content concepts. Scroll down for our expert tips.

Our Best Summer Travel Content – Part 1

It’s already mid-June, and summer is really heating up. It’s time to share some of out best summer travel content.

For many of us, summer is synonymous with holidays – the warmer the weather, the more we yearn to get out of the city and head down to the beach – so we’ll start with a pair of destination guides we wrote for two of Southern Europe’s finest summer seaside getaways. First up is Puglia, Italy’s stunning destination du jour, and next is Spain’s sand-lined Costa Blanca, where toasty summer temperatures have been drawing in sun worshippers for decades.

Alternatively, if you dream of spending your summer the way wealthy tycoons and celebrities do (i.e. lounging on the deck of a luxury yacht), you may want to read the article we wrote on Palma’s superyacht scene. And for those who don’t have the budget, holiday time or inclination to venture to the Mediterranean, we’ve also included a rundown of country-wide UK summer events, as well as a blog post we penned on summer festivals in Devon.

There’s a great selection of our best summer-themed travel content below, so scroll on down to start reading…
