Mike Coletta is an experienced Europe backpacker and technology/marketing guy. His travels have taken him across 20 countries in Western and Eastern Europe, while his professional endeavors have taken him into the land of web development and online marketing.
Mike caught the travel bug early on, taking trips around the USA on annual family vacations. But a dream of visiting faraway cultures and lands stayed with him until college when he studied abroad and the travel bug fully caught hold. Mike now makes numerous trips to Europe every year, backpacking everywhere between Greece and Norway, and exploring delicious restaurants, little-known sights, and fun things to do along the way.
On EuropeUpClose.com, Mike shares his travel findings as well as the websites and travel resources he uses to save money and travel better, all while running the technology behind EuropeUpClose.com. In his spare time he enjoys playing in two bands.
