It’s Januari and we have already gotten our first award by Fitur. We were elected world’s best travel blogger. Well almost, we became second. But still!
The Spanish Tourism Fair (Fitur) awarded world’s best travel blogger 2015. There were two categories: content and popularity by votes. Content concerned qualitiy, integration of different communication formats, innovative use of medium, publication frequency and outreach.

This year we could also show our English site, which might have helped.
