TOP 83 European bloggers you should follow in 2015!
A lot is said about the fact that the most successful and famous travel blogs are run by Americans and Canadians. The truth is that internet was way more developed and common there back in the early days.
When I took off in 1998, I heard about something called internet once or twice, vaguely, but had no idea of what it really was about. But in the year 2000 I moved to the US and came across a brand new reality – the internet – just to get disconnected once again, after I returned to Europe.
Europeans have been traveling extensively since… well, since “we” invaded the new continents a few centuries ago. Traveling has always been part of our culture with our 30 days of paid vacations and something we always took for granted.
Although most European travel bloggers are not as famous as our fellow Americans ones, we’re out there living our passions and sharing our dreams with the world in many different languages.
Here are some of the coolest European natives and European permanent residents who are sharing their forever travel life with all of us..
Sab is one of the most successful European travel bloggers, and also one of the most talented photographers.
Although she doesn’t report every single trip she makes, she has been all over and the love for the road runs in her veins. She’s known for being one of the friendliest, most helpful and humble girls out there. Her posts always make me laugh!
Sam and Zab write one of the most interesting vegan travel blogs out there. With a love for new experiences, these two have been traveling the world and eating some of the most delicious foods. They’re a location independent couple who has taught English in different countries and learned how to make a living while on the road. Their vegan guides are to die for.
Clelia is an inspiring travel blogger from Italy. She’s a great example of someone who believed she could live a more fulfilling and enriching life. So she left her well paid job in London and took off to explore the world.
Apart form her incredible travel experiences, she’s also one of the friendliest and interesting persons I’ve talked to.
I still haven’t been fortunate enough to meet Joao in person, although we’re both Portuguese travelers with many years on the road.
Joao is a reference for anything and everything related to traveling, from the most popular destinations to the most exotic ones. Filled with tips and great stories, he definitely runs of the most comprehensive Portuguese written travel site and a serious off the beaten path English blog. I really hope we bump into each other one of these days.
Inma is a gypsy by heart and a girl whose personality fills up the entire room. Living a conventional life would probably kill her and you can see her passion and love for the road through her breath taking photos.
She’s Spanish by birth, but a true citizen of the world and I wonder if she ever stops and takes a rest?
Yes, they’re an Anglo-Italian couple and a reference for everything related to slow, deep travel with a vegan taste!
No one scores better house-sitting and pet-sitting deals than them and according to what they’ve told me, their heart breaks every time they leave their new pet friends behind to chase another adventure.
Dale and Franca created one of the best travel blogs out there, they’re on my top 10 travel bloggers of all time and every single post I read, I learn something new with them. The quality of their writing and their stories is hard to match!
An Italo-Slovakian couple that managed to create one of the top travel blogges out there. Gianni, a professional photographer captures some of the most beautiful landscapes and sceneries, while Ivana is one of the best storytellers I know. Their posts are filled with meaningful info, emotions and stories you’ll want to live as well.
Nature lovers and ecologists by heart, they’ll take you with them through some of the most beautiful places on earth.
MONKEYS AND MOUNTAINS
Laurel is a nature lover, running an adventure travel blog. Although she is Canadian, she lives in Munich, Germany. The title of her blog comes from two of the things she loves most. Her goal is to inspire you to add more adventure to your life!
Laurel’s blog is absolutely beautiful, her photos will make you want to pack and leave immediately. She will show you Germany in many different perspectives as well as all the other parts of the world she has been to.
Paula and Daria, are probably the funniest couple in the blogosphere! Their videos make me laugh hysterically and they’re 2 of the most talented Vloggers I’ve ever met!
Paula is Brazilian and Daria is Italian and for the time being, they both live in London with their cute cat. They run really inspiring videos that deal with several LGBT issues. But don’t think their work revolves around LGBT issues only, as most of our challenges in life, either they’re related with our intimacy and relationships or not, are actually very similar and their goal is to inspire all of us to overcome our fears with humor and a light heart.
Ezio Totorizzo, is a Food lover, Puglia addicted e Mr Lifestyle. “I love travelling, laughing until I feel jaw pain, reading and chatting with a cup of tea.”
Ezio will take you through the stunning cities and landscapes of Italy and the world. A wonderful Italian written travel and lifestyle blog with some of the most beautiful and inspiring photos you’ll ever see!
I LOVE this blog! I absolutely love how I lose sense of time and space when I go through the crowded planet. Margherita is Italian and the most talented writer and storyteller I came across in the blog world. She’s brilliant and through her stories, i can almost feel and smell all the places she is telling me about. Nick is a very talented Australian photographer who can capture magic like no one else. With his photos, he has the ability to carry you on their journeys around the world and thanks to their stories I have spent more time online than I wanted
Definitely a must!
Alex is from Slovakia and probably one of the first European travel bloggers I’ve heard of. She’s been writing consistently for some years now, sharing her adventures and passions with the world. She’s a vegan and fitness health coach with multiple talents.
When someone writes for a long time, you can see their evolution and changes which can be quite fascinating. As she says on her bio: “…if you are looking for just one thing on my blog, I have to disappoint you. I would get bored doing the same thing all over again, so this blog is about crazy travel, fun adventures and sexy photos. It is about spa, swimming, snorkeling, massages, adventures, flying, beaches, hiking, animals, city breaks and other experiences around the world.”
“We are two adventurous tramps, best friends – Agness and Cez, from Poland. We call ourselves tramps, because we live without permanent home and for under 25 bucks a day, since 2011. While travelling the world, we find the time to write about it, share the tricks to do it cheaply and even help other people do the same.”
Agness and Cez has built a solid name within the travel blog world. I’m always fascinated by the amount of hard work and energy they pour on their blog. If you’re traveling on a budget, they will be your best reference for tips and ideas.
Sabina is a rare case in the travel blog world, where personality meets talent. While many travel bloggers hide behind their blogs, Sabina shines through. Her blog has a very personal voice.
On her bio, you can read: “I’m 21. I’m a blogger, student and international troublemaker. I have a passion for fashion, I revel in travel and I’m always in the mood for food. I also have a weakness for delicious cocktails and cute animals (boys included!). I’m trying to make the whole world my home and this website is my progress report.”
This is a one of a kind blog, and its uniqueness is an inspiration and reference for many single parent families who desire to travel with their kids.
Talon is a born American, but European resident and single dad, with a multi passion for everything challenging and fun, whether it is scuba diving, cycling or running.

I “world school” Tigger, teach languages, write, do photography, teach scuba, and do other online work along the way.”
Marcela and Filipe are a Brazilian couple living in Berlin and together, they’ve created a stunning blog that captures incredible photography and the best tips to enjoy and explore Berlin, no matter if you only have 24 hours and a month!
“Our idea was to inspire people from all over the world that live in Berlin and don’t really know the city. Our idea was to mix our passion for photography together with the fact that, since we never lived in Berlin before, we needed to explore where we decided to call home.”
Stefania is a dutch living and enjoying the wonders of Malaga, Spain.
She will share her multi passions on her fantastic award wining blog, where she describes herself as: “Serial expat, child of two cultures, I live in Malaga, the south of Spain from where I travel the world when budget and time allow me to do so.

Boredom is probably a word that Will forgot a long time ago. If he’s not climbing, trekking, getting painted or couchsurfing, he’s probably sleeping and getting ready for the next adventure! The broke backpacker could only be written by this cool British dude, because his personality shines through in a very unique way.
“Hi! I’m Will, a wandering adventurer, travel writer and amateur photographer. I like to get muddy, naked and painted. I first started backpacking when I was eighteen and was instantly hooked by all the inspiring people I met whilst hitching, camping and couchsurfing around Europe.”

Written in Spanish and covering different countries and cultures, these are the must guides for any independent traveler.
Although Polish by birth, Anna really is a citizen of the world, who can’t identify with one culture or country alone.
“Hi, I’m Anna! I’ve been traveling & living in different places around the globe for the last 10 years. I don’t let a full-time job be the reason not to travel, but I don’t think you have to quit your job to be a traveler. I have a passion for movies, love wildlife and I’m always in the mood for food.”
Can a traveler who never intended to travel become an inspiration? Meet Denis, a fun adventurous German guy who will inspire you to move. “Hi, my name is Dennis Kopp and I am not only the author of what you are reading, but also the eyes in which you are seeing the world that is portrait on this website. It seems strange now, but for most of my life I was actually never much of a traveller. In fact, I never really liked to be away from home and for many years I did not even go anywhere when I had time for vacation…”

“Ever since I was a small girl and since I remember I was travelling. My parents used to drag me first around Poland and then, around Europe. Each summer was spent visiting mountains, seasides, lakes, cities and so many other beautiful places. That gave me a serious travel bug that is getting worse and worse with time…”
Fran is a travel fanatic I was fortunate to meet in 2 different occasions.
His blog was born in 2008 out of his passion for traveling and it’s now a reference for the Spanish speaking travelers.
Marysia is one of the most energetic and fun bloggers I’ve met so far. Born and raised in Poland, she’s now a citizen of the world and a person who will turn every event into a wild party! I absolutely love her!
“It took me a while to understand what my real passion in life is. I have studied to be a lawyer. Took a degree in fashion design. Lived and partied in Spain and England. Whole my life I had an ‘on and off’ affair with art, hand-made decorations and restyling furniture. I love foreign languages. I had fun working for an entertainment news agency. But those were typical romances. Amorous. Even concupiscent but always, after a while, I was burned out. I needed a new fling. A change.”
“I’m Agata and I travel a lot. It’s not only about miles crossed. Not about far far away places. Not that much about the places I go to. Although I traveled around the world last year (again!) I think MEETING people and DOING things are much important than just WATCHING landmarks and touristic sites.”

“I’m just a girl with a severe case of wanderlust who has no shame in favoring meals over museums, tapas over trekking and drinking wine for lunch. I truly believe that food is the catalyst for the best travel experiences, and good food doesn’t mean “fancy with a high price tag””
Maria is a Bulgarian travel blogger and we met in Greece in 2013. I was thrilled to meet a blogger from a country that is not famous for exporting travel writers.
“You can’t quit your job right away but want to visit every single place on Earth? I thought that’s imposible, too. But then I put myself together and changed that! And I’m going to show you how I successfully balanced 9-5 job with travelling to Paris, Istanbul, London and other magical places.
I’m also in love with my home country Bulgaria, so I’m going to tell you about all the best places and all the things you can do here. ”

Our mission is to circle the globe and TAKE YOU WITH US! That’s what Backpack Me is all about.”

João is a fellow Portuguese travel blogger I’m dying to meet. This guy doesn’t stop and his photos are to die for! I feel jealous of his amazing adventures.
“Growing up in Coimbra, a small city in the center of Portugal, I was never a big traveler on my teen years, apart from the typical five days getaway to London or Paris.

Since we started this blog in 2014, our writing and photography have evolved to focus a lot more on our travel experiences (the people we meet and how they express themselves through art, the History and heritage behind the destinations) and a lot less on “how to’s” and “guides”. You will still find these posts on the blog but not as frequently.
There’s little I enjoy more than hopping off a train in a new city, not knowing what’s around the corner. I’ve lived in New Zealand, Norway and the USA and have visited well over 100 of the UN member countries. Or, depending on how you count a country, 154 countries and territories. Do I think that’s fun? I kinda do.

I’m Monica and I’m a British travel blogger.I began travel blogging in 2009 when I left the UK to travel for two years. I bought a backpack and a one-way ticket to Australia and had the most amazing 2 years of my life as I travelled through Asia and around Oz in a battered old campervan. From the moment that ticket was booked I was hooked on travel and I’ve barely stopped ever since.
I grew up in a beautiful village in the midlands until moving out at 18. Before this I hadn’t been far, a few holidays in France and a school trip to Turkey about covers it. And although I dipped my toe in the water with a holiday to Greece with friends the summer before university it wasn’t until I worked on a kids camp in New York that I truly got bitten by the travel bug. It was those ruddy Ozzies that did it to me!
We’re Kirstie & Stuart. We share an adventurous spirit, a passion for indie travel and 3 kids. The Family Adventure Project is our long term experiment in doing active, adventurous things together.
