Our Best Autumn-Themed Travel Content

We hate to begin with bad news, but there’s no avoiding it: summer is over. However, rather than dwelling on the negatives (bye bye sunshine, sandals and copious amounts of ice cream), let’s instead focus on the positives.

Autumn is approaching and there are lots of exciting things on the horizon. If you are based in the UK, you can expect a flurry of festivals coming your way, including the UK-wide Museums at Night and London Open House. Not familiar with these events? You can find out more by reading our write-ups of the 2015 editions below. There are also rumours of an autumn heatwave arriving on UK shores. And though we have learnt not to put too much faith in the predictions of the Met Office, we have included our article on Devon’s top picnic spots just in case.

And that’s just the start…

Our Travels: Alaska, United States

The writers and and editors who make up the World Words team are regular and enthusiastic travellers. You could say their passion for exploring our incredible planet is insatiable. It is this first-hand knowledge and on-the-ground experience which is infused into all their writing. When we aren’t busy crafting travel content for our clients, we’re on the road making travel tales of our own. And this blog series – Our Travels – is where we share them with you.

So far in this series, we’ve covered destinations as varied as Japan, Iceland and Oman. This month, it’s the turn of staff content writer Samantha Wilson, who heads off to meet brown bears and orca on a trip of a lifetime to Alaska.

Our Travels: County Kerry, Ireland

If you have been following the Our Travels series on this here blog, you will have noticed that the writers at World Words tend to get around a bit. From Corsica to Guatemala, Oman to Japan, our team members regularly jet off far and wide, sharing their experiences through their post-trip write-ups. But not all of our writers’ travels are far-flung adventures; we love exploring what’s on our doorstep just as much as what’s on the other side of the world.

On a recent trip back to her home city of Dublin, our senior content editor Mandy decided to take a few days out of her holiday to explore one of the most scenic parts of the country: County Kerry. Scroll down to read her story…

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…
