Our Best Summer Travel Content – Part 2

A couple of weeks ago, we published a post about World Words’ best summer travel content. And while we were trawling through the archives in search of summer-themed blogs, articles and guides, we ended up finding a lot more than we bargained for – too much to squeeze into one post, in fact. So naturally, we decided to write two.

This time around, we’ve got even more summer beach break ideas, including a guide to the idyllic Greek island of Crete, an article about yoga retreats (including seafront options in Goa, Nicaragua and Bali), and a press release for a dreamy beach resort in the Maldives. If you rate fresh air, mountain hikes and biking more than beachside bliss, then you can drool over Adler Mountain Lodge in the Dolomites instead… or if it’s a city break you’re craving, we’d suggest reading our guide to Sydney. Sure, it is winter over there, but winters in Sydney aren’t exactly harsh. And anyway, it’s the perfect season for exploring: the mild temperatures are ideal for walking, the accommodation prices and crowds are lower, and you might even witness whales making their annual migration to the Coral Sea.

All of this great summer-themed travel content is waiting for you below, so scroll on down to start reading…

A Travel Startup That Helps You Give Back – A Blog for From the Grapevine

Over the past few years, a crop of travel startups, including the likes of Aribnb and TripIt, have transformed the travel industry. They’ve been breaking the mould of what’s gone before with new and innovative ideas, some of which have changed the way we travel.

In our latest article for From the Grapevine, we took a closer look at a brand spanking new travel startup – an exciting New York-based venture called Visit.org. Visit.org is an online marketplace for socially responsible travel activities. The tours they offer are global in scope, covering destinations from the Philippines to Peru, Senegal to Tanzania, and many more besides. Working with nonprofits and community organisations, Visit.org offers a way for tourists and travellers to engage in responsible and ethical tourism. Want to learn more about what they do?
