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…

From Budapest to The Bahamas: Travel Guide Content for TravelSupermarket

At World Words, we’re often asked to write destination guides for our clients. No wonder – travel guide content is the ideal way for a travel brand to share its expertise, while also communicating its unique personality and tone of voice. It can also do wonders for a brand’s SEO, boosting its search engine rankings in relation to key destinations and services, and ultimately delivering more potential customers to its website. And when it comes to travel guide writing, there’s nobody with as much content experience and as much local destination expertise as World Words.

In early 2017, we were approached by online travel comparison company TravelSupermarket. They were looking for a series of 3,500- to 4,500-word travel guides on popular destinations across Europe and beyond, from short city breaks to long island escapes. With our team of writers based all around the world, World Words was able to offer the on-the-ground insight they wanted, so over the next few months we wrote 30 different guides for them.

We’ve included extracts and links for six of our fave TravelSupermarket guides below. Scroll down to read them…

Athens Audio Guide For Cities Talking

We love writing about travel here at World Words, but our talents aren’t limited to print and web. We’ve also got a knack for composing great audio scripts and we’ve been doing just that for the lovely folks over at Cities Talking.

Cities Talking is a nifty little app that lets you explore cities for yourself, using GPS and a virtual guide. No need to traipse around after an umbrella-wielding leader; with Cities Talking, you can set your own pace and skip over any sights that don’t strike your fancy.
