Take Advantage of Corona-Slowdown to Give Your Travel Content a Spring Clean

The world of travel is always changing, and what you once thought was evergreen content can become outdated in the blink of an eye. If you or your brand produces or commissions travel content, it’s vital to regularly take stock of what you’ve already got, what you still need, and what can be retired. This will help keep things neat, fresh and relevant. And if you are going to do some content spring cleaning, well, surely there’s no better time than spring?

(Particularly this spring, when coronavirus’ knock-on events might leave you with a little more time on your hands).

If your website is home to a travel blog, destination guides, tour itineraries or any other types of travel content, we have some top tips for sprucing it up (and all just in time for the big pre-summer booking rush). Read on for more…

High School Language Student Travel Itineraries for Educational Journeys

At World Words, we do all kinds of travel content writing, from web copy to destination guides, magazine articles to blog posts. But one of our favourite kinds of travel content to write is tour itineraries, as it gives us a chance to use a combination of our destination expertise, travel nous and research skills to do a deep-dive on destinations.

So when we were approached by the learning-focused travel agency Educational Journeys earlier this year, we were delighted. They wanted us to write a series of travel itineraries for Australian high school students. While the educational focus of the itineraries could vary from history to languages, they all required passionate and inspiring content that would appeal to teachers, parents and students alike. This was just the kind of challenge we relish.

Scroll forward to December 2019, and we have completed dozens of itineraries for Educational Journeys already, with more to come next year. For a taste of the work we are doing, scroll down for extracts from three itineraries…

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…
