About Us

Reykjavik from Hallgrimskirkja 1

GlobalGrasshopper is a global magazine and resource for independent travellers run by the UK-based duo Becky and Gray. We’re also joined by a team of self-confessed travel snobs and together we’re on a mission to discover the world’s most underrated and beautiful places. We feature photography, guides and travel inspiration with a slightly off-beat outlook.

What we like
