GlobalSapien is a platform dedicated to promoting alternative destinations, alternative forms of travel, and alternative lifestyles centered around travel. Specifically, we advocate a sustainable, community-based approach to experiencing the world through reliance on social capital rather than financial resources. We embrace risk and uncertainty over comfort and security. We choose Papua over Paris, Lebanon over London, Myanmar over Madrid – every time.
