A Slovenian among the top sixteen bloggers in the world

In the largest blogger competition in the world The Big Blog Exchange, where bloggers all around the world compete for the chance to swap blogs and countries with each other simultaneously for 10 days, Slovenian Mic Melanšek won 7th place among European and 16th place among 633 world bloggers.

This is a remarkable achievement for Slovenia in the world`s biggest blogging competition. The Big Blog Exchange sees bloggers all around the world competing for the chance to swap blogs and countries with each other simultaneously for 10 days. Among 633 bloggers, the Slovenian Mic Melanšek won seventh place in Europe and ranked among the top 16 bloggers together with 15 others from France, the US, Great Britain, Japan, Spain, the Republic of South Africa, Ireland, Brazil, Argentina, Malaysia, Canada, India, the Philippines, Italy and Australia. Melanšek will swap his home country for Australia, while an Australian blogger will get to know Slovenia with the help of Hostelling International Slovenia.

The outstanding performance of Hostelling International Slovenia in terms of youth mobility and, first of all, the excellent travel blog by Mic Melanšek, led to Slovenia`s success in a very difficult world competition alongside countries such as India, the US, France and Brazil, which have up to a few hundred times more inhabitants than Slovenia.

The international association of youth hostels Hostelling International received the highest world recognition by UNWTO for innovation in tourism and the successful performance of the Big Blog Exchange in 2013.
