Find and Plan Tours and Trips Around the World

Plan your next extended global adventure (or weeklong vacation) with Globetrooper

It’s a big world out there. But travelling alone can be difficult, and convincing your friends to take time off to join you can be hard.

For the adventurer in you, there’s Globetrooper, a social network site that allows you to create or join a planned itinerary with other like-minded travelers.

Simply create an account and begin perusing the site. You can search by type of trip (backpacking, food and wine discovery or railway adventure, for example) or by region of the world.

Trips come complete with projections on cost and duration, as well rankings for how much culture shock you’ll experience or how risky they are. (The site offers everything from a weekend in Montreal to an attempt to climb Mt. Everest)

Even if you’re not looking to join up with others, the itineraries serve as great inspiration for booking your own trips.

Now you just need to arrange for that month-long work sabbatical.
