Our Travels: Jurassic Coast, England

When they are not busy writing, World Words writers and editors are out and about exploring places all over the world. After all, they are travel writers – the name’s a giveaway. The Our Travels blog series is where writers get to share their experiences and adventures with you. So far, they’ve covered destinations as many and varied as Portugal, Canada, Japan and Australia. So, if you’re looking for travel inspiration, you’ve come to the right place.

This month, it’s the turn of World Words contributor Jennifer. Just before corona-lockdown, she spent a few weeks exploring the Jurassic Coast, a UNESCO-listed stretch of coastline spanning Dorset and East Devon in the south of England.

Feeling All Summery: A Selection of Our Best Summer Travel Content (Part One)

It’s the end of June, and summer is well and truly upon us. So it’s time to share some great summer travel content.

For many of us, summer is synonymous with holidays – the warmer the weather, the more we yearn to get out of the city and head down to the beach – so we’ll start with a pair of destination guides we wrote for two of Southern Europe’s finest summer seaside getaways. First up is Puglia, Italy’s stunning destination du jour, and next is Spain’s sand-lined Costa Blanca, where toasty summer temperatures have been drawing in sun worshippers for decades.

Alternatively, if you dream of spending your summer the way wealthy tycoons and celebrities do (i.e. lounging on the deck of a luxury yacht), you may want to read the article we wrote on Palma’s superyacht scene. And for those who don’t have the budget, holiday time or inclination to venture to the Mediterranean, we’ve also included a rundown of country-wide UK summer events, as well as a blog post we penned on summer festivals in Devon.

There’s a great selection of our best summer-themed travel content below, so scroll on down to start reading…
