The GoodOn the Globe is definitely “a cut above the rest” when it comes to scholarship and professionalism. Andrew Prinz, the editor, is an experienced journalist and his entries reflect his polished journalistic style of writing. “High-brow” was the first word that came to mind when we visited this site. It was an enjoyable change from the norm. We especially liked Prinz’s article, Cuban Alternatives. We have yet to see a more detailed and comprehensive review of hotels, places of interest and upcoming events in Cuba in a single article anywhere online. He covers everything of practical importance, from budget hotels to luxury accommodations, without forgetting to make the content between the facts engaging and enticing. The tour packages, while outside many travelers’ budgets, looked like they would be excellent value for their target market.
The BadThe only bad thing we can say about On the Globe is that much of it is not travel oriented. The scholarly and fascinating biographies (mostly about prominent Hungarians) are worth reading, but only if you have already made your travel plans and are just looking for something to read. If you want to buy a painting, there are hundreds of wonderful works by dozens of painters available for sale in their galleries. Nonetheless, we thought On the Globe was a great travel website to purchase a travel tour package or one of their Travel films.
