Our Travels: São Miguel, The Azores

If there’s one thing that World Words writers and editors enjoy doing even more than travelling, it’s writing about travelling. Lucky, really, considering that’s our job. But for every trip that’s undertaken for a commission – whether it’s an article or blog post, a travel itinerary, or a client’s website content – there are also the moments we decide to down tools and head out on the open road for our own personal pleasure. That’s where Our Travels comes in.

This blog series allows our team to share some of their recent, personal travel adventures. In the past, they have written about everywhere from Corsica to Canada, Crete to the Cayman Islands, and this time it’s the turn of our intrepid editor-in-chef Joe and his recent Christmas trip to São Miguel in the Azores.

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?

This month, World Words content writer Samantha takes a trip to Mallorca, one of Spain’s sunny Balearic Islands – and her childhood stomping ground. Scroll on down to read her brand new take on a once-familiar destination…

Our Best Autumn-Themed Travel Content

We hate to begin with bad news, but there’s no avoiding it: summer is officially over. However, rather than dwelling on all the negatives (bye bye sunshine, sandals and copious amounts of ice cream), let’s all focus on the positives.

Autumn is here… and that means loads of exciting things are on the horizon. If you are based in the UK, you can expect a flurry of festivals coming your way, including the UK-wide Museums at Night and London Open House. Not familiar with these events? Find out more by reading our write-ups of previous editions below. We also have stuff about picnicking and outdoor marathons (if the weather remains sunny), and a seasonal city break to Vienna in Austria (suitable in all weathers). Without further ado, here’s a selection of our best fall-themed travel content…

Our Travels: Andorra

At this precise moment in time, there are World Words team members dotted all over the world. Literally. All over the world. It’s inevitable, really – when you are a team of travel content writers and editors, discovering far-flung corners of the globe isn’t only our greatest passion; it’s part of the job description. After all, it’s this on-the-ground expertise that allows us to create exactly the kind of well-informed, superior-quality content that our clients crave.

Every once in a while, we like to give our readers some insight into where on earth our team members are. And we do this through a blog series called, imaginatively, Our Travels. In the past, we’ve covered our writers’ trips to everywhere from Lisbon to Luang Prabang, Guatemala to The Gambia. This time, it’s the European microstate of Andorra. Scroll down to read about our editor-in-chief Joe’s trip, the realisation to a 17-year-long travel ambition…
