Glo-cal-ist: one who is a local of several cities or regions.
Locally sourced and globally spread, The Glocalist takes the world and transforms it into your neighborhood.
The Glocalist is an online, interactive cultural-travel guide tailored to young adult travelers. This series of guides offers authoritative information for those looking to dive into the world’s cultural scenes and emerge a local.
Much like the farm-to-table movement, this digital publication seeks to give you locally sourced, nitty-gritty travel information seasoned with cultural flavor. Glocalist readers can ride the local transportation like a pro commuter; sip on the signature drink at the neighborhood dive bar; and crawl through the underground night scene like a residential hipster.
In our very first installment, Havana guide, The Glocalist transforms you from a gringo to a habanero/a. Make tostones from an old family recipe; celebrate your African ancestors in the back alleys of Centro Habana; memorize the country’s most well-known poem. Through local narratives and insider information, this guide presents an unparalleled glimpse into everyday Cuban life, exploring the tapestry that gives Havana—and Cuba—its timeless allure.
