Our Best Winter Travel Content – Part 2

Almost a month has passed since we last shared some of our best winter travel content, so it’s time for an update.

Last time, we only scratched the surface of winter travel content we’ve completed for our clients, so this time we are diving a little bit deeper. We’ll start with a piece we had published on Run in the Dark Edinburgh, a night-time jogging event in the Scottish capital. Meanwhile, for anybody needing last-minute ski holiday inspiration, we have 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 have also included a destination guide we produced last year on the Languedoc region in sun-drenched southern France.

Last but not least, for those wanting to improve their written travel content in 2016, we’ve also shared some of our top editing tips with Media Kitty. So what are you waiting for? Scroll on down to read a short excerpt from each.

Our Travels: Quebec City, Canada

When it comes to lifestyles, World Words team members are hardly what you’d call home birds. Our globetrotting travel writers and editors are pretty much constantly on the move, scouring interesting destinations near and far, both for research and for pure pleasure. In this knowledge that our intrepid team members are always on the go, we’ve created an Our Travels blog series, allowing them to share their latest travel-related tales and experiences.

Our staff content writer Nathanael got the ball rolling with his account of a trip to the Isle of Harris. Next up, editor-in-chief Joe took us on a whistle-stop tour of Corsica. This time around, our senior content editor Mandy invites us along to Quebec City, the history-steeped Francophone capital of the Canadian province of Quebec. So let’s go…

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.
