Americans James & Susan started The Savvy Backpacker with the aim to create a “a high-quality site about backpacking in Europe — a site that I would want to actually use”. They have succeeded for sure!
The Savvy Backpacker is one of the most popular blogs for travelers heading to Europe. The website looks beautiful, they have great city guides with good “to do” tips, but what we think really makes this blog stand out are the meticulously researched “planning” articles with really great practical tips.
Some of our favorite items:
- A list of “City price guides” with an overview of how much you will spend in the most visited cities in Europe. Super handy!
- The most extensive packing lists we’ve every seen
- A very long list of the best travel apps – including us :)
Some articles have quite a few articles containing sponsored content or affiliate links, but it’s all very clearly labelled and even this commercial content is super fun to read and comes straight from the heart – they clearly only review products they really love and use themselves.
