About me

Hi! Welcome to Complete City Guides!

Complete City Guides mascot logo

My name is Patrick, I'm originally from Sydney (Australia) - 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!

Europe A La Carte europealacarte.co.uk

Europe A La Carte is maintained by Karen Bryan.

There are guides/tips to most of the countries in Europe, and the blog is regularly updated.
