That diploma, which we received from the director of the fair already during the event, we wanted to leave it "guardadito" in a small drawer of the blog as I remember to read it one day when we are old.
Best travel blog by content
There are already several editions, specifically this is the third, in which FITUR opens its field to travel bloggers by promoting their professionalism from two points of view. On the one hand, the capacity of diffusion and influence among the followers, by request of votes through the networks, whose award has obtained for the second consecutive year the bitacora of Nelson Carvalheiro calledNelson Carvalheiro Travel & Food. The second award recognized the work of creating quality content, and in this case it was the FITUR Social Media team and a designated jury that decided the winner.

Award presentation at the fair
It has been the director of FITUR, Ana Larrañaga, in charge of giving us the diploma emphasizing that the decision has had three fundamental aspects in the decision: the quality, the frequency of updating and the innovative use of its contents
The great blogs that have been presented in this edition have also been highlighted, highlighting the second place shared by Anneke de Bundel (from Holland and author of Nomad and Villager) and Phoebee Lee (from Australia, author of Little gray box). The American Gary Arndt, author of the blog Everything, Everywhere, complete the podium.
And this award, how could it be otherwise, we thank all the Keys, that great community that already forms this little blog that has been growing year after year, and that if it were not for all those comments of encouragement or that you have been serving all the content that we are publishing, we would never have reached these 9 years of life. Paula also, especially for her patience (which is not a little), the true heart of the web. ! For new trips!
Paula and Isaac, with our new diploma
