Globetrooper.com connects like-minded travelers

May 09, 2010|By Jen Leo

Tired of traveling by yourself? Globetrooper.com puts you in touch with like-minded travelers seeking global adventures and could help you avoid paying that dreaded single supplement.

What's hot: The site focuses on experiential adventure travel and provides a space where travelers can chat about their trip plans before booking. I admire the focus on regions rather than just a single country. Even if you don't decide to join a trip, I liked browsing the "Global Guide" for dream trips, such as an overland trip from London to Cape Town, South Africa, or cycling through Vietnam and Laos.

What's not: It was easy to get excited about a trip but not easy to figure out how to book it. If you're looking for just a weekend getaway, this might not be the site for you. Also, I couldn't figure out how to create a trip to share with just a handful of my friends and not the rest of the site.
