Our Travels: Madeira

As regular readers of our blog will know, the expert travel writers and editors at World Words like to get around. Nothing makes us happier than strapping on a backpack and heading out there to discover a new place, meet new people and gain new perspectives. Nothing, that is, except for writing about the experience for our clients!

The Our Travels blog series is the place where we can share some of our most recent trips directly. In the past, we have covered our most exciting discoveries in all four corners of the world, from the cute brown bear cubs of Alaska to the majestic vultures of India, the Mayan pyramids of Guatemala to the mountaintop temples of Japan.

This month, our editor-in-chief Joe takes us to a distant corner of Europe that is capturing the hearts of more and more people: Madeira. After visiting the Portuguese archipelago in early February, Joe picks his island highlights…

Our Travels: Southwest Belarus

We are an extremely well-travelled bunch here at World Words. Between us, we’ve been to literally hundreds of countries in all four corners of the world (personally, I’ve been to more than 80). Of course, much of this is in the name of work, allowing us to provide comprehensive destination expertise for our clients. But some of it is simply for the pure joy of travel. After all, we all chose to be travel writers because, first and foremost, we love to travel.

This Our Travels blog series allows us to share our passion for overseas adventures directly with you. So far, we have recounted our tales from a whole host of destinations right around the world, from Quebec City to Northern Oman, Isla Canela to Alaska. And this month, we are venturing deep into previously undiscovered territory, with one of the least-visited countries in Europe (for now). So join our editor-in-chief Joe on his trip through Belarus…
