Global Grasshopper professes to be not only a travel blog but an award-winning global magazine for independent travellers. Started by the UK-based Becky and Gray, Global Grasshopper focuses on off-the-beaten-path travel. The travel blog delves into some of the world’s most underrated destinations, leaving readers desiring to embark on their own off-beat travel.
Organised by both destination and specific interests, Global Grasshopper makes browsing a breeze. Their “Cool Hotels” category takes readers inside the most unusual places to rest their heads in cities around the world. For a more general look, “Top 10s” covers both the top 10 must-dos in specific cities as well as simple tips. For instance, “Top 10 tips on how to ‘Switch-Off’ on your holiday,” covers why taking a break from the digital world might make yours the absolute best vacation possible.
Most uniquely, Global Grasshopper devotes an entire section to “Travel Snobs.” Rejecting the typical travel tips, these articles give insider advice like “Unspoilt places to visit in Bali for travel snobs” and “12 under the radar things to do in Rome” for travellers who are tired of the tourist scene. On top of all of this, the blog reviews various travel products and even lends advice on how to begin your own travel blog. So no matter where you are going in the world, Global Grasshopper is a wonderful resource to begin researching your adventure.
