How to Turn a Trip into Travel Content

If you need to create great travel content at the drop of a hat, it’s helpful to have built up a good store of ideas to draw on. And you’ll find that your own travels can be great starting point for a whole range of content ideas. The fact is, the concepts that make the most compelling pieces are often the ones that draw on your own experience.

Even if the holiday you’re about to go on might not seem like it’s going to be worth writing about, you just can’t know until you’ve been. That upcoming camping weekend in Wales could end up providing the source material for an irresistible pitch, a dazzling post for your company blog or even an award-winning travel feature (aim high!)

All too often, however, the key details that can make the difference between good and great travel writing end up lost in transit. That’s why it’s so important to gather everything you may need for your content during the trip itself.

Whether it’s you or a colleague that’s going away, follow our tips to turn the travel experiences into killer content…

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…

Our Travels: Southwest Iceland

First, we took you to the remote chilly outcrop of Isle of Harris, Scotland. Then we experienced the Mediterranean charms of Corsica, France. Next, cultural Quebec, Canada and fun Dubai, UAE. Now, for our fifth and final (in 2016) Our Travels blog, we are heading back to Europe to the far northern hotspot of Reykjavik and Southwest Iceland.

Our editor-in-chief Joe recently visited Iceland on long weekend break, staying in the small town of Hafnarfjordur, just outside Reykjavik, and exploring the southwestern corner of the island. Scroll on down to read his thoughts…

Our Travels: Corsica, France

The content team at World Words have a real passion for travelling. Well, what else do you expect from dedicated travel content writers? Our writers and editors are always busy exploring the globe, from inner-city culture to idyllic island escapes, and they love nothing more than sharing their experiences with others. That’s why we’ve created a brand new blog series called Our Travels, in which our team members share their experiences directly with you.

It all started last month, with this article from staff content writer Nathanael on the Isle of Harris. This month, editor-in-chief Joe takes us on a quick tour of Corsica, a majestic island in the Med – just 100 miles off the French coast.
