Our Travels: Venice, Italy

You may have noticed that the team at World Words has a bit of a soft spot for travel. Okay, let’s face it – it’s more than a soft spot. We’re in love. At any given time, you’ll find at least one of us on the move, discovering an exciting corner of the world. Sometimes it’s for work, but sometimes it’s simply to quench our own thirsts for exploration.

We love to share our travel experiences with friends, family and strangers alike, and the Our Travels blog series lets us do just that. We’ve written about adventures everywhere from Japan to Belarus to Guatemala. This month, staff content editor Eilidh McCabe looks at the highlights of her recent Italian trip to Venice.

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…

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.
