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…

Our Travels: Northern Oman

We’re often asked: “What’s the difference between World Words and other content writing agencies?” Our answer is simple: experience. While most agencies have rows of writers sitting behind desks and researching topics, our expert travel writers and editors are on the road, digging and discovering to get personal experience and insight to inform their content. Not only are our contributors based all over the world, from Europe to Asia, North America to Australia, but they love to travel too. We’ve itchy feet by nature, so we spend almost as much of our collective time exploring the world as we do writing about it. And that’s what makes World Words stand out from the pack.

To highlight our team’s wanderlust, we like to share their travel stories through a blog feature we call Our Travels. This month, our editor-in-chief Joe Reaney recalls a recent, unforgettable trip to Oman. Scroll down to read more…

Our Travels: Isle of Wight, England

Here at World Words, we are not simply sitting behind our laptops, crafting inspiring and evocative travel writing. We are out in the field, doing what we love best and digging deep to discover new, fascinating destinations and quirky angles on well-loved places. With our team members always visiting somewhere interesting, we have put together the Our Travels blog series, so they can share all their latest and greatest travel tales and experiences.

We have already covered a range of interesting destinations around the globe, from Quebec City and Corsica to Southwest Iceland and Dubai. This month, we’re keeping things a little closer to home (or, at least, our UK home), as content writer Samantha Wilson sets off on a family escape to the Isle of Wight.
