From Tech Escapes to River Cruises: The Top Travel Trends of 2018 – Infographic

Believe it or not, we are already a quarter of the way through 2018 – where on earth has the time gone?! Within the world of travel, that means that the year’s consumer travel trends are starting to take shape. To mark 2018’s progress so far, we thought we’d take a look back to late 2017 and see the predictions then for the year ahead.

This infographic from The Dunloe Hotel & Gardens predicted some of the trends that they’re convinced will come to pass in 2018, from low-cost long-haul flights to health-conscious holidays. We think that a few of these trends have already grown in popularity this year (particularly ‘the switch off holiday’, where people choose to eschew their smartphones and other tech), but you can decide for yourself by scrolling down to see the full infographic…

Our Travels: Cornwall, England

All of us at World Words are lucky enough to count ourselves as very well-travelled. It’s our greatest passion, and our wanderlust is at the heart of everything we do – and everything we write. Between us, we’ve crisscrossed the globe, venturing to incredible destinations and far-flung hidden treasures whose names are difficult to pronounce.

Naturally, then, the Our Travels blog series is something dear to our hearts, as it allows us tell our personal travel stories. Regular readers of this blog will already have heard our tales from such varied places as Belarus, Oman and Japan. Yet sometimes we venture only a couple of hours from home, to explore what’s right on our doorstep.

In this month’s blog, staff content writer Samantha Wilson recounts a long weekend with her family near Fowey in the heart of Cornwall. That’s in the south west of England, for the uninitiated. Scroll down to read all about her trip.

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…
