Guest Post: Like a Local Magazine

While we are island hopping this week, I am bringing you one of the coolest guest posts! See what Polly has to say about their new creative project: Like a Local Magazine!

Hi, all! I'm Polly, the blogger over at A Girl and Her Travels and more recently the editor-in-chief of Like a Local magazine. Jamie kindly invited me to invade her blog while she's out of town so I wanted to give you some reading material to keep you company while she's gone this week.

Enter Like a Local. Thought up by my husband and I in a sweaty apartment in Granada, Nicaragua, our online magazine is a way to extend our travels in a thoughtful way, flex our creative muscles, and hopefully provide insight to other people along the way. Our motto is 'beyond the guidebook' and with each issue we really hope to guide you toward hidden gems and secret stories that you'd only find with the guidance of a true local!

That's why each issue will feature just one city and the stories that a guidebook wouldn't have time to tell. Like a Local is a quarterly production, meaning each city and it's unplumbed depths will be highlighted in the peak of each season. Our first issue was just released: autumn 2014 featured Moscow, Russia and all of its amazing green spaces before winter set in.

So if you're at a bit of a loss for some reading material, check out our first issue. We've got tales of illicit love affairs, secret killing fields, and not-so-legal activities to keep you company until Gunters Abroad is back!

And if you really enjoyed issue one, please consider making a contribution toward our Kickstarter campaign which ends SEPTEMBER 1st! We're raising money to purchase our layout in full and provide our issue two contributors with a small stipend! Thank you!
