Our Travels: Mallorca, Spain

Everyone here at World Words loves to travel. Well, travel writing would be an odd career choice if we didn’t. At any time, you’ll find several of us on the road, whether we’re on the Pacific paradise of Easter Island, in Thailand’s vibrant capital Bangkok or, well, anywhere else. The fact is, there are few places on earth none of us have been.

Once we’re back on home soil after a trip, there’s nothing we love more than writing about it, sharing our insights and discoveries about the destination. That’s why we created this Our Travels blog series – to give us a chance to share some of our more personal travel tales with you. After all, it’s this genuine wealth of travel experience that gives our work its authentic voice, allowing us to create factual, inspiring and original content. So why not share it?

Here at World Words, we pride ourselves on our top-notch, insightful travel content. It’s what we do… bring far-flung destinations to life with the awesome power of the written word. Unlike content in many industries, travel content is about far more than facts and figures; it must be snappy and concise while offering a deeper level of description that evokes sensations and drives wanderlust. It needs to tell a story. And like all memorable stories, content works best when the expertly-crafted words are accompanied by complementary and beautiful images.
