About Us

So who am I?

My name is Emilio Marcos Sierra and this is my travel blog. Since 2015, I’ve managed to travel the world on a meagre student budget, and the point of this blog is to show you exactly how I’ve done it. I simply want to inspire other people to get out there and see the world, sharing my tips and experiences to give you the best chance of making the very most out whatever budget you find yourself with. I am a massive believer that travel broadens the mind, and money should never be a barrier to experiences that fundamentally shape you as a person.

As of December 2018, I have visited 31 different countries on 3 different continents. 3TravelBug offers a range of travel reports, guides and look-back reviews on every place I visit. My blog has developed a lot since back in early 2017. It has moved from being a place to remember my trips, to being informative and hopefully a place that will inspire other people to travel!

The idea for a blog dates back to March 2017, whilst I was in Iceland with my friend Max on our breaks from uni. We’ve travelled a LOT since 2015 and I wanted a place where I could remember all of our trips, naturally I never expected it to gain any real traction whatsoever. I thought maybe a few of my friends would read it but nothing more. However, it quickly began getting views from all over the world!

People have been writing in to ask me for tips on how to get the best out of their budget in the cities I’ve documented, as well as the lesser known wonders the tourist traps tend to overshadow. As my friends and I kept travelling and visiting new places, I’ve seen this little blog grow at an incredible rate and I realised I had to keep posting!

Feel free to chime in with any questions you have or any advice you’re after by contacting me! Travelling has really grown into a passion and I’d be more than happy to help you guys discover trips (and tricks) you’ll treasure forever!
