Blog Bites: Clippings of Three Recent Travel Blogs Written by World Words

Another month has flown by and our travel writers have been busy scribbling away and creating a variety of travel blogs. To give you a little taster of what we’ve been up to, we’ve picked out three of our recently published blogs, which cover a variety of travel-related topics from cruising to health and wellness.

First, we delved into the delights of the northern Italian spa town of Salsomaggiore Terme for Live Adventurously. Next, we took a long hard look at Fred Olsen’s luxurious cruise ships to give readers of Bolsover Cruise Club‘s blog the inside scoop on the best vessels on the seven seas. Then, we scoured the web to hunt down the crème-de-la-crème of travel content for our September Travel Roundup for Pimsleur Approach.

Here is a short extract from each of these blogs — all written by our expert travel writing team.

Top Travel Links Blogs for Pimsleur

Every month, we write a blog post for Pimsleur Approach listing the best travel stuff on the web. We call it Top Travel Links. These pieces showcase the best travel articles, news and events, pictures, videos and more from the previous month in a range of publications around the world. Here is a short extract from the latest in a long line of round-ups…


Is travel a bad idea? Wildlife photographer Paul Souders says it can be. He tells the Mother Nature Network all about his life and career, in which he jets around the world, takes photos and gets paid. That must be awful!

William L Sullivan, on the other hand doesn’t do the world, but what he doesn’t know about hiking around Oregon isn’t worth a damn. And now he’s planning a book tour.

It’s April, so why, you may be wondering, is the word “Santa” approaching rapidly? Simple. Semana Santa (there it is) is Spanish for Easter. Read all about it on The always-wonderful National Geographic has a list of 10 things to do before April dies – and, unlike us, who will have done it three times by the end of this sentence, it doesn’t mention Santa at all.

Closer to home, it’s Patriots’ Day on April 21. Head to the National Park Service website for a list of events. Meanwhile, British journalist and photographer Lee Howard followed in the footsteps of Scarlett O’Hara and Rhett Butler on the Gone with the Wind Trail.

You can read the whole of the April’s Top Travel Links blog on the Pimsleur Approach website. Alternatively, check out the rest of 2014’s Top Travel Links blogs so far here and here – or delve even further back into the archives here.

Our First Ever Buzzfeed-style Blog

At World Words, we always like to try new things. So we have taken a big leap to create our first Buzzfeed-style post.


The blog combines GIFs, videos and images (as well as text) to highlight Valentine’s Day traditions around the world.

We already have other multimedia blogs in the pipeline, but as this was our first we thought it was worth a mention…
