Our Travels: Patagonia, Chile

If there is just one thing you need to know about World Words writers and editors, it is that we love to travel. And we don’t just mean two weeks on a Spanish beach or a weekend break to New York (though we wouldn’t say no to either) – we go out and explore some of the most interesting, adventurous and often lesser-visited destinations in the world. Right now, you can find our team members traversing pretty much every continent, having incredible experiences that will help inform the expert travel content we create for our clients. Yes, we know… it’s a hard life.

Once a month or so, we like to share some of our team’s recent trips on our blog, in a series we call Our Travels. Regular readers will know we’ve previously covered everywhere from India to The Gambia and from Canada to Thailand. This month, World Words’ editor-in-chief Joe is heading to South America. In fact, he is heading to the very south of South America – Patagonia. Scroll on down to read his account of his eventful Chilean adventure…

Our Travels: Easter Island

At World Words, we are very proud of our team’s extensive travel experience. You see, not only are all our writers and editors highly experienced in the worlds of journalism and marketing, they’re also uncommonly well-travelled. In fact, you won’t find many corners of the world that members of the World Words team have not visited. And we believe that this passion for travel and this personal experience gives our travel content unparalleled authenticity.

As regular readers of the Our Travels blog series will know, we like to share some of our most exciting trips with our readers. This month, it’s the turn of editor-in-chief Joe. Having previously written about travels to Belarus, The Gambia and Corsica (among others), he is now heading to one of the most remote places on earth. Easter Island.

A Flying Safari over Nambia or an Easter Island Cruise? Our Web Copy for Pantiel

At World Words, we regularly create website copy for a number of large multinational travel brands, from Expedia to TravelSupermarket. But we are also proud to offer our professional web copywriting services to a number of smaller, independent companies, from hotel booking agents to travel agencies, PR companies to travel bloggers.

During the summer, we were approached by the private luxury travel agency Pantiel for a new web copy project, and we were delighted to help. They were looking for a series of sample journeys to add to their website – while their trips are painstakingly tailored to their customers, they wanted some example trips to show what’s possible.

Over the course of the summer, we wrote more than 35 sample journeys – and we thought we’d share a few of them here. From a Dubai shopping trip to an Arctic adventure, here are snippets from six of our favourite trips…

From the Old Course, St. Andrews to the Atacama Desert: Our Latest Website Copy

At World Words, we’re regularly asked to write website copy for our clients. In fact, aside from blogs, web copy is probably the most common type of travel content we write. And over the years, we’ve got pretty darn good at it.

The last few months, in particular, have seen us completing many interesting website content briefs. We’ve been approached by several independent tour companies looking to overhaul their website copy, and have been able to make their visions a reality. Each project has been entirely different – different services, different markets and different style requirements – but they have all had one thing in common; wanting to refresh their website content in order to improve their search rankings and increase their sales. And they’ve all been delighted with the results.
