Welcome to Sophie’s World, a blog about searching for the world’s curious and often unsung corners, about the quirky and fun things to see and do in more familiar parts of the planet. And about travelling with children. Sophie’s World is frequently ranked among the world’s best travel blogs.

To learn more about us, please see our about page.

We cover travel destinations which appeal to the independent traveller looking for interesting experiences off the beaten track.

We welcome cooperation with PR agencies and destinations.

Here’s how you can benefit:

  • Our readers are interested in travel and search for inspiration.
  • Through our large social media platform and our loyal readers, we will promote your destination or brand to travellers.
  • As opposed to print media, blogging and social media reach readers immediately.
  • Articles on Sophie’s World continue to grow in popularity and will appear in search engines for years to come.

At Sophie’s World, we love the written word and constantly develop our skills. Anne-Sophie Redisch has numerous publication credits, including various inflight mags, such as British Airways, Thai Airways and Qatar Airways, Fodor’s Travel Guides, National Geographic Traveller, Prospect Magazine (UK), the Matador Network, EuropeUpClose, Boots’n’All, and more.

Unusually for a travel blog, the kids have their say as well. The oldest daughter Alexandra holds an MA (Hons) in Creative writing, and the youngest daughter Catarina writes from the teen perspective.


  • We only publish guest posts and product reviews as part of a larger campaign. 
  • We do not write about places we haven’t experienced personally.
