Travel like a local the other side of GRINDR

Travel like a local the other side of GRINDR  |  Grindr  |  Some of you know Grindr as the forbidden word, others as the leading global dating and/or hook up site, but more and more people are finding Grindr to be the best way to connect with other locals, when traveling around the globe, to get the expert inside take, recommendations and tips on where to go out, dine, hang out, what is hot and trendy…etc. A smartphone application to connect on a all-male location-based social network. Grindr, which first launched in 2009, has exploded into the largest and most popular all-male location-based social network out there. With more than 3.5 million guys in 192 countries around the world — and approximately 10,000 more new users downloading the app every day — you’ll always find a new date, buddy, friend or local expert advise on Grindr. Quick, convenient, and discreet. And it’s as anonymous as you want it to be. Grindr is a simple app that uses your mobile device’s location-based services to show you the guys closest to you who are also on Grindr. How much of your info they see is entirely your call.

I travel around the world trying to discover what is new and hot at each destination I go, and I have found Grindr to be and ally and one of the most reliable sources of information when traveling to new unexplored destinations worldwide, looking for the unbeaten path on where to have a great local meal, what bar is the most happening, which is the best hotel, or which party is taking place on a Tuesday night. Example of this, are the messages I get all the time from members around the globe, welcoming me to their destinations and offering to share their tips with me to better feature their destinations. The new generation of virtual interactive travel guides and companion. Download it for FREE and grind your way away. CM

BTW Grindr for the first year has announced the Grindr Gay Travel Awards 2012 in Florinopolis, Brazil, at the IGLTA‘s Annual Global Convention and here you can see the results.  So without further adieu, the envelope, please… Read more
