Globetropoer is a social travel platform for people to find travel partners for global adventures and expeditions. Each trip has its own home page where interested users can discuss the itinerary and decide whether they want to join. Our trips range from weekend getaways to trekking across deserts and climbing Himalayan mountains.

The Globe Trooper website is really packed with superb details. From a broad perspective the site is a very well executed experience, telling lots of travel ideas and rating them rather effectively. If you’re into traveling and experiencing the world this is the site for you. Digging into the details of the site’s design elements doesn’t leave it lacking either. I like the main navigation design, calling out the two most important tabs by making them bigger and also the way the site exposes the social aspects of the content are well thought out and placed just about everywhere. Really a top notch website design and experience.
