Feeling All Summery: A Selection of Our Best Summer Travel Content (Part One)

It’s the end of June, and summer is well and truly upon us. So it’s time to share some great summer travel content.

For many of us, summer is synonymous with holidays – the warmer the weather, the more we yearn to get out of the city and head down to the beach – so we’ll start with a pair of destination guides we wrote for two of Southern Europe’s finest summer seaside getaways. First up is Puglia, Italy’s stunning destination du jour, and next is Spain’s sand-lined Costa Blanca, where toasty summer temperatures have been drawing in sun worshippers for decades.

Alternatively, if you dream of spending your summer the way wealthy tycoons and celebrities do (i.e. lounging on the deck of a luxury yacht), you may want to read the article we wrote on Palma’s superyacht scene. And for those who don’t have the budget, holiday time or inclination to venture to the Mediterranean, we’ve also included a rundown of country-wide UK summer events, as well as a blog post we penned on summer festivals in Devon.

There’s a great selection of our best summer-themed travel content below, so scroll on down to start reading…

Our Travels: Western Crete, Greece

As you read this, we guarantee that at least some members of the World Words team are travelling. Whether it’s a city break, a beach holiday, a mountain excursion or a rainforest trek, you can’t keep our writers off the road. This wanderlust, coupled with a talent for putting it down in words, is why we specialise in high quality travel content.

We’ve shared many travel tales in this series of blogs, which we call Our Travels. From Joe’s jaunts in Estonia to Allison’s adventures in Bangkok, you’ll find the team’s many dispatches from all over the world in the OT archive.

This month, it’s the turn of our regular staff content writer, Nathanael. Having recently married (congratulations!), Nathanael and his wife Natalie needed to pick a suitable spot for their honeymoon. In the end, they decided to visit Western Crete, a land of monasteries, mountains and mezedes. Scroll down to read his account of the trip…

Our Travels: Montpellier, France

It probably comes as no surprise to you that the World Words team has a serious case of wanderlust. After all, it’s those itchy feet that led us to specialise in travel content in the first place. We don’t just love to write about global destinations, we get out there and explore them for ourselves, which is what makes our content so well informed.

The Our Travels blog series gives us the chance to share our very best travel stories with you each month. Our jet-setting writers and editors have visited worldwide destinations as varied as Oman, Estonia and Quebec City.

In this month’s blog, World Words content writer Ruth heads to the sunny south of France to explore Montpellier…

Our Travels: Lisbon, Portugal

Here at World Words, it’s not just writing about travel that gets our pulses racing – we’re pretty keen on actually travelling, as well. At least one of us is always on the go, exploring a new (to us) and exciting corner of the globe.

As travel writers, we love to share our adventures with the wider world, which is what this Our Travels blog series is all about. We’ve covered plenty of places already, from Tallinn in Estonia to Vancouver Island in Canada to the Finger Lakes in the United States. And those are just a few of our most recent posts – here’s the full OT archive.

This month, our intrepid staff content editor Eilidh shares the highlights from her recent summer trip to the pretty Portuguese capital of Lisbon. For Eilidh, it’s a city that benefits from repeat visits. Scroll on down to find out why…
