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…

Explore Enchanting Norfolk: An English County Travel Guide for Oliver’s Travels

It all started with Ibiza. Back in October 2015, we penned a travel guide on the popular Balearic Island for Oliver’s Travels, a British company that specialises in unique, luxurious holiday villas across Europe. They were so happy with our work that they commissioned a dozen more, from the Algarve in Portugal to the entirety of Scotland. You may have seen this previous blog on Aquitaine in Southern France; another destination we wrote about for them.

Oliver’s Travels have been so content with our content, they’ve recently commissioned us to write another batch of destinations for them. You’ll see them appear on Oliver’s Travels shortly. But in the meantime, we thought we’d share another of our favourite travel guides with you: Norfolk. This pretty corner of England was just a joy to write about, and you can read the whole guide here. Or scroll down to read a small extract about this charming county.
