More of Our Top Autumn Travel Content

Autumn has well and truly arrived: there’s a nip in the air, a peppering of russet on the trees and decorative gourd displays every which way we look. It’s one of our favourite times of year, so we’re sharing some more of our best autumnal travel content (just in case you missed it, here’s our previous selection of fabulous fall-themed content).

We’ve included a couple of articles on autumn festivals, from on-trend light festivals to London’s Totally Thames. As autumn also coincides with wine harvest season in the United States, we’ve also included a piece on Napa Valley weekend. Plus, there’s our Oliver’s Travels guide to Ireland, which we think is at its finest when seasonal hues of gold, orange and red invade all that green. Feeling autumnal? Scroll on down to read snippets of each…

Our Best Autumn-Themed Travel Content

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

Autumn is here… and that means loads of exciting things are 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? Find out more by reading our write-ups of previous editions below. We also have stuff about picnicking and outdoor marathons (if the weather remains sunny), and a seasonal city break to Vienna in Austria (suitable in all weathers). Without further ado, here’s a selection of our best fall-themed travel content…

From Lithuania to The Ukraine: Country Guides for The Council of Europe (pt. 2)

Following on from our post earlier this month (if you haven’t read it, you’ll need to click here right now), we’ve put together another selection of the country guides we wrote for Routes4U. A little refresher… Routes4U is an online trip planner, focusing on destinations all across the continent, which are divided into four macro-regions. It’s a joint venture between the Council of Europe and the European Union, and we were tasked with writing a total of 11 of their country guides. Each guide would include a country overview, practical travel info, individual city coverage with things to see and do, and concise summaries of the various regional travel routes they wanted to promote.

All caught up? Excellent! Then scroll on down to read snippets from five more of the country guides we wrote…

From Czechia to Latvia: Our Destination Guides for The Council of Europe (pt. 1)

One of the most common content writing requests we get is for destination travel guides. Over the years we have written guides for everyone from TravelSupermarket to Fodor’s Travel. And thanks to our large network of expert travel writers based all over the world, we’re regularly asked by clients to write about their neck of the woods too.

That’s what happened earlier this summer, when we were approached by the Council of Europe, an organisation committed to upholding human rights and democracy throughout the continent. They were looking to launch an online trip planner within Europe, and were looking for writers to help. The project, which was a joint venture with the European Union, was to be called Routes4U. It would focus on destinations throughout the continent, divided into four macro-regions, and we were tasked with writing guides for 11 of the countries. Each guide would feature a country overview, practical travel information, individual city guides with points of interest, and pithy summaries of the cross-continental travel routes they wanted to promote in the region. Naturally, we were delighted to help.

Scroll on down to read snippets from six of the country guides we contributed to the project. The remainder will follow in another blog very soon. Can’t wait that long? Then visit the website to see all the guides in one place…
