Our Top 10 Posts and Statistics for 2021

We hope that the new year has started well and that 2022 looks more promising than 2020 and 2021! It’s now time for us to summarize our top 10 posts and other interesting statistics from 2021.

As we really enjoy numbers and statistics, this is something we have done each year since we founded The Biveros Effect in December 2015. Click on the links below for statistics from previous years.

Our Top 10 Posts in 2021

There are actually several posts that have continued to be among our top 10 for a few years now. No posts from 2021 have made it to the list, but time will tell if they will be as popular over a whole year as the posts from earlier. A quite recent post about our trip to Malta has made it quite close to the top 10. A Kid Re-discovers the Island ended up at #17.

So here they are, our top 10 posts 2021 with the position last year within the parenthesis.

  2. Slovak Cabbage Soup – Kapustnica (3)
  3. Sights in Bratislava – The Border Tripoint (4)
