A couple of weeks ago, we published a post about World Words’ best summer travel content. And while we were trawling through the archives in search of summer-themed blogs, articles and guides, we ended up finding a lot more than we bargained for – too much to squeeze into one post, in fact. So naturally, we decided to write two.
This time around, we’ve got even more summer beach break ideas, including a guide to the idyllic Greek island of Crete, an article about yoga retreats (including seafront options in Goa, Nicaragua and Bali), and a press release for a dreamy beach resort in the Maldives. If you rate fresh air, mountain hikes and biking more than beachside bliss, then you can drool over Adler Mountain Lodge in the Dolomites instead… or if it’s a city break you’re craving, we’d suggest reading our guide to Sydney. Sure, it is winter over there, but winters in Sydney aren’t exactly harsh. And anyway, it’s the perfect season for exploring: the mild temperatures are ideal for walking, the accommodation prices and crowds are lower, and you might even witness whales making their annual migration to the Coral Sea.
All of this great summer-themed travel content is waiting for you below, so scroll on down to start reading…
Back in March 2016, World Words was approached by the leading public relations agency Bacall Associates. The agency, which bills itself as a ’boutique PR, marketing and sales support agency’ and particularly specialises in the travel sector, required a series of press releases to be written about luxury hotel resorts across Europe and Asia.
Naturally, we were all too happy to help. We wrote five press releases in total, on resorts ranging from AlmaLusa in Lisbon to Dhara Dhevi in Chiang Mai, but one of the first releases to be sent out to press was about Finolhu. A newly-opened property in the Maldives, Finolhu is a beautiful five-star resort that is all about old-school relaxation.
You’ll find the press release below…
Don’t let anybody tell you Devon is just about sandy beaches, bleak moors and clotted cream. In this newsletter content for holiday rental agency Discovery Holiday Homes, we look at the county’s very best summer festivals.
There really is something for everyone this summer in Devon, whether you’re a crime fiction buff or a jazz music lover. There’s the International Agatha Christie Festival, which usually features workshops and murder mystery-themed events. It runs from 11 to 20 September at Torre Abbey and celebrates what would have been the famed author’s 125th birthday. There’s also the Teignmouth Folk Festival, held in South Devon between June 19 and 21. There will be the usual English folk fare like Morris dancing, but also performances with their roots in America’s Appalachian region. Other festivals include Glas-Denbury Music Festival (July 10 to 11), a child-friendly alternative to the hedonism of soundalike Glastonbury festival, and the Tiverton Balloons and Music Festivals (July 10 to 12), which somehow manages to combine hot air balloons and wonderful jazz music into a single fun-filled weekend.
But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. From a festival devoted to the deliciousness of crabs to a world-class regatta, Devon has a whole host of fun to offer visitors this summer. Scroll down to see all our seasonal recommendations.
