Planning a trip can be a daunting task, but for a gay traveler it can be even more difficult. We have put together a list of accommodation and ideas to help you plan your next voyage.
Outward voyage shared travel guides, websites, recommendations and booking links to help you plan you next outward voyage.
Recently my partner and I traveled to Spain, Switzerland and Rome in the space of a few months. We try to get away at least twice a year, hopefully more, but we don’t want to be greedy!
Traveling allows us to have time to ourselves, to relax and to absorb some culture. However, we do like to feel welcome, accepted and safe. Don’t we all?
At the beginning of the year we traveled to Rome for my partners birthday. For the last three years we try to get away for a weekend to celebrate the occasion. Why not! I am a believer of your work to live!
Finding a gay friendly location, accommodation and services are an essential however a place to relax and by yourself helps. Where is the local gay bar, where are like minded people dining or drinking. What hotels could we have stayed in, or where could we stay next time.
We find that finding a gay friendly environment, and a place where you can be yourself, in a place which can feel so different, breaks down those anxiety issues, concerns about cultural difference and more.
We will try to share as many experiences of our travels here on Outward Voyage to share top tips and recommendations for a LGBTQ+ friendly community.
