From Venice to the Amalfi Coast: A Host of Italian Blog Posts for City Wonders

At World Words, we’re big fans of Italy. All those ancient ruins, historic landmarks and cultural riches, that glorious art and architecture, fabulous fashion and family-focused culture. Not to mention the extraordinary landscapes, sunny summer weather and ski-friendly snow in winter. And of course, the superb food and wine. So when one of our clients, City Wonders, asked us to write a series of posts about Italy for their blog, we jumped at the chance.

With locations ranging from historic Venice in the north of the country to the spectacular southerly Amalfi Coast, with a whole host of memorable and iconic stops in between, we found ourselves tackling topics ranging from films to food to family travel. Simply scroll down to read a selection of our Italy-focused blogs for City Wonders.

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…

From Longer Lie-Ins to Welcoming Staff: How to Make a British Person’s Holiday

The World Words team live all over the world, so we’re very used to totting up the costs before making a move abroad. But there are some cities that are inescapably expensive. Our writers in Scandinavian capitals like Oslo and Reykjavik are used to exorbitant living costs, while others based in London, New York and Dubai can penny-pinch with the best of them. Yet none of these capitals make the top 10 list of the world’s most expensive cities.

Compiled by Hansen & Company, this neat little infographic counts down the priciest places on the planet (and they are not always in the countries you might expect). Scroll on down to see the full infographic in all its glory…

From Guides to Slides: Choosing the Best Form of Content For Your Travel Brand

Don’t let anybody tell you otherwise – there is no such thing as one-size-fits-all travel content writing. Every travel business is different, as are its consumers and the service or product it provides. Travel content must address the needs of those readers (both existing and potential clients) whilst simultaneously promoting and adding value to the brand. In short, it must be personalised to you, individually… starting with choosing the right form of content.

There are many aspects to consider before deciding on the type and style of content writing. Ask yourself some of these questions: What would I like my readers/potential clients to know? What content can I provide them with to help them plan/buy/choose my brand? Who is my demographic? How will this ultimately benefit my company?

To help you choose the right form of content, we’ve created a breakdown of your options, and how to best utilise them for your travel brand. We’ve already covered travel blogs in detail, so we will begin with destination pieces…
