About WorldWideWriter

WorldWideWriter is owned and managed by Karen Warren.

I have been writing and travelling for many years (almost 70 countries at the last count). I’ve visited every continent except Antarctica (I still hope to get there one day…), and my favourite destinations are Italy, Spain, North America and the Middle East. I am currently based in Bath, UK.

This website is my attempt to inform and inspire other travellers, with a focus upon European destinations. I have two other sites: Bewitched By Italy covers travel in Italy, and there are a few posts about travel elsewhere in the world on my author blog Karen Warren Author.

My interests are wide-ranging, but I have a particular focus upon history (the older the better), art and architecture, countryside and food. I try to concentrate on lesser known sights and destinations, or on different aspects of well known places. If I come across anything quirky, or off the beaten track, then I like to write about it.

I pride myself on being able to find something of interest wherever I go – I’m always willing to accept a challenge to promote an overlooked destination! I also write for other publications, and have been featured in Travel Awaits.

I am happy to consider working with brands or tourist boards – contact me at [email protected] for more information. If you are interested in guest posts or sponsored posts please read my guidelines before getting in touch.

I also write fiction and book reviews, and I am a reviewer for the Historical Novel Society. I have two books in print. Shadow of the Dome is a historical novel based on the true story of a voyage from China to Persia by the legendary explorer Marco Polo in the 13th century. And Secret Bath is an unusual guide to the city of Bath.

Programme of Tourism Promotion of Epirus – FAM trip to Epirus, Greece, October 2021
