More of Our Top Autumn Travel Content

Autumn has well and truly arrived: there’s a nip in the air, a peppering of russet on the trees and decorative gourd displays every which way we look. It’s one of our favourite times of year, so we’re sharing some more of our best autumnal travel content (just in case you missed it, here’s our previous selection of fabulous fall-themed content).

First up, we pulled out an article we wrote on an increasingly popular phenomenon: light festivals. This blog post was originally penned back in March, but we felt it was a timely inclusion, as one of the highlights of the light art calendar, Prague’s Signal Festival, gets underway this October. And speaking of autumn festivals, we’ve also dug up our write-ups of London’s Totally Thames and Merge festivals, which take place this September and October.

And because autumn also coincides with wine harvest season in much of the Northern Hemisphere, you’ll find a feature we wrote back in 2014 on the ultimate Napa Valley weekend. Last but not least, for those planning some last-minute autumn trips, we have included a recent travel guide to Ireland we wrote for Oliver’s Travels. We think the Irish landscapes are arguably at their most beautiful when hues of gold, orange and red invade all that green.

Champagne Life: The Saatchi Gallery’s All-Female Show (Private Air Magazine)

Earlier this year, the Saatchi Gallery in London created a groundbreaking all-female art show entitled Champagne Life. We knew it was an event that would interest one of our favourite clients, Private Air Luxury Homes Magazine, so we sent along our editor Mandy – notepad, recorder and camera in hand – to get the low down on the event.

Below is the feature she wrote about the exciting exhibition – as published in the March/April issue of Private Air.

More of Our Best Winter Travel Content

Over the past week, residents of the blizzard-hit north-eastern United States have been sharing their remarkable snow photos online, reminding us that – no matter how unseasonably warm it may be here in the UK – we are still in peak winter season. And considering that a whole month has passed since we last shared some of our finest winter travel content, we think it’s high time for an update.

So, what’s new? Well, we have had a piece published on Run in the Dark Edinburgh, a night-time jogging event in the Scottish capital. For those wanting to improve their written travel content in 2016, we’ve also shared some of our top editing tips with Media Kitty. As for the archives, for anyone looking for last-minute ski holiday inspiration, we’ve pulled out features on Canada’s Mont-Tremblant and the Swiss mountain resort Zermatt. And, because we know that some of the more forward-thinking among you may already be planning your summer escape, we’ve also included a brand new travel guide we produced on the Languedoc region in the sunny south of France.

Scroll on down to read a small excerpt from each.

Alice Sachs Zimet: Straddling Arts and Business (Private Air New York Magazine)

Collecting photographs is an increasingly mainstream pastime for those with the artistic appreciation, the in-depth knowledge and, of course, the spare money in the bank. In fact, it has become so popular that this is the second photo collector profile piece we’ve written in as many months (following this piece on Richard and Ellen Sandor).

This article on Alice Sachs Zimet was produced for Private Air New York Magazine, a publication focused on high culture in the Big Apple and firmly targeted at the one percent. World Words’ senior editor Mandy interviewed the renowned collector about her love of art and her long-held habit for hoarding, and you can read her piece below.
