About

Globonaut is an open storytelling platform where a crew of curious explorers share their ways of seeing the world. Culture, nature, and travel are our central themes. We always aim to dig a little deeper and tell the stories that often go unnoticed, no matter how big or small.

Our Inspiration: what on Earth is a Globonaut?

Globonaut was inspired by a desire to create an open platform and community where anyone can share their stories about the world around us. But what does it mean to be a ‘Globonaut’? Well, it’s all about the mindset. Here’s a definition (that we totally made up):

Globonaut (ɡləʊbənɔːt), noun: 1. inquisitive earthling that examines one’s time and place in the world; 2. curious explorer  of the Earth’s natural and cultural environments.

What are our main values?

  • Offering a safe space across borders to collaborate as a crew of curious explorers from around the world.
  • Freedom to develop creative content skills like writing, photography, video, and editing.
  • Shedding light on underexposed topics within the cultural world, including the travel industry.
  • Telling the stories that can make a difference in somebody’s world view, no matter how big or small.
  • Providing a healthy balance of diverse genres with a mix of in-depth and light-hearted content.

These are our main genres:

In short: we are an online travel magazine with a core crew of bloggers, but also a place for anyone to share their ideas and develop their thoughts and skills. Globonaut is a welcoming place for those who want to share their experiences on more than just their social media, but don’t necessarily manage a personal blog and audience. Likewise, Globonaut is also an option for those who already have their own channels, but would like to be part of a larger community.

Most importantly, we aim to offer a safe and accessible platform to freely develop your thoughts about whatever fascinates you about living on planet Earth.
