About me

Hi! Welcome to Complete City Guides!

Complete City Guides mascot logo

My name is Patrick, I'm originally from Sydney (Australia) but grew up in England (my second home) - and I love exploring cities (and writing about it!)

I work online in marketing, which gives me the opportunity to travel around the world full time.

So while I am away, I keep this blog updated with full travel info. I tend to stay in a city for a few months at a time, to really get to know it - then I write guides on it.

Best Travel Bloggers 2016

Welcome to the CompleteCityGuides.com's list of top 30 best travel bloggers for 2016! I love travel blogs, and have always followed a handful over the years. Here is a list of the ones that I really like and regularly read or am subscribed to their newsletters.

To get on this list, a blog has to:

  • Have regular updates
  • Post interesting topics, hopefully with nice and high-quality photos
  • Must still be updated in 2016
  • The writer(s) must be experienced travellers, and write about travels all over the world (or at least all over a continent - none that only blog about one country)

(They are displayed in a random order. If you think we have missed your favourite travel blogger, get in touch and if we like the blog too we will happily add it to this list!
