From Iceland to South Africa: Read Our Blog Posts for Conversational Traveler

Earlier this year, in the deep dark days of lockdown, we were approached by boutique New York travel agency Conversational Traveler to contribute to their Monday with M blog. They wanted us to write a series of inspiring travel blogs on destinations across the US and around the world. Naturally, we jumped at the chance: if we were going to be stuck at home, at least we could imagine we were on the open road (and help others do the same).

Over the next six months, as restrictions slowly eased, we produced a number of blog articles for Conversational Traveler, on destinations ranging from Iceland to Greece to South Africa. We have included extracts from a few of these articles below – simply scroll down to read the snippet, or click for the full piece on the Mondays by M blog.

Our Travels: Lanzarote

Amazing travel writing isn’t about researching far-flung corners of the globe from the comfort of your own home – it’s about getting out there and experiencing all that a destination has to offer. In rain or shine, the intrepid writers and editors at World Words are always on the lookout for new adventures on their doorstep and beyond. Whether it’s relaxing with a book on the shores of the tropical Gili Islands, seeing the ultra-bright lights of bustling Bangkok, or taking a once-in-a-lifetime safari to Samburu Reserve, we definitely know how to make the most of our days off.

Taking advantage of easing travel restrictions in Europe, our writer Anita recently jetted off to Lanzarote. It’s one of the Canary Islands, a Spanish archipelago off Africa’s northwestern coast. She was in search of sunshine, pristine stretches of sand and unique volcanic landscapes – and that’s just what she got. Scroll down to read all about it…

Our Travels: Snowdonia, Wales

As regular readers of the Our Travel blogs will know, our team of intrepid travel content writers are always on the go – even during a global pandemic (local lockdowns permitting, of course). From the cosmopolitan chic of San Francisco to the tropical bliss of Indonesia’s Gili Islands to the big game of Samburu Reserve in Kenya, they get itchy feet if they’re not planning their next escape (then returning home and reliving it by writing blogs like this!)

While far flung destinations are always enticing, we are also big advocates of discovering the delights that are on our respective doorsteps. In fact, one of the few bright spots of all the recent Covid-related travel restrictions has been having the time and the excuse to explore local attractions a little more thoroughly. With that in mind, World Words writer Samantha Wilson – along with her husband and young daughter – recently set off for a wintry break in the wilds of Snowdonia National Park in northwest Wales. You can scroll on to read all about her experiences…

From Eastern Canada to Northern India: Articles for Travelsphere World – Pt. 2

This is part two or a two part blog article. Missed the first part? You can read it here.

At World Words, we love everything we do – from blog posts to web copy, tour itineraries to destination guides. But if we had to pick our favourite thing to write, it would probably be travel feature articles for newspapers and magazines. Why? Because you really get to express yourself creatively, while sharing your destination expertise and taking your readers on a journey. So when an existing client, Travelsphere, who we had previously helped with catalogue copy, asked us to write up some travel feature articles for their magazine, we leapt at the chance.

As people who read the first part of this blog will already know, we wrote our first three articles for Travelsphere World Magazine on South America, Europe and California. The next three? You can scroll down to read them…
