In Focus: Budapest & Slovenia

I just returned from hosting our Budapest & Slovenia gay tour and I simply must make a formal proclamation: this was THE surprise hit of Out Adventures’ 2019 summer tour roster. What began as ‘just an extension’ to our Croatia gay cruise has morphed into an epic journey through Central Europe featuring cosmopolitan capitals, exceptional wining & dining and our company’s most exclusive experiences yet!

In Focus: Laos & Cambodia

While gay travellers flock to Vietnam for the food, clamber to Thailand for the culture and race to Bali for the beaches, only a few trendsetters touchdown in Laos. Consequently, the tiny landlocked country has maintained a certain level of mystery to LGBT travellers.

Kevin Robitaille, our beloved sales manager, led a group of inquisitive gay adventurers through Laos & Cambodia this past autumn. While touring, Kevin took a slew of arresting photos in both countries.

Peruse his travel photos below and then head over to our website to learn about lovely Laos. If we’ve piqued your interest, consider joining our annual Laos & Cambodia: Buddhist Sights & City Nights gay tour to see the lush country for yourself.

“You don’t come to Scotland for the weather.” chattered the plump woman next to me as we touched down in Glasgow Airport.

After a week hiking the highlands in dreich — translation: dreary — weather, I can confirm, ‘No. You certainly do not.’ But you do come for the incomparable vantages, the lush surrounds and the country’s ancient beauty.

Below you’ll find a handful of photos I captured while hosting Out Adventures’ annual Scottish Highland Hikes gay tour. The sun may only make a brief cameo, but the fantastical allure of the coastal country is front and centre. Continue reading “In Focus: Scotland”

We tasked our sales manager Kevin Robitaille with capturing the spirit of our Croatia: Gay Dalmatia Cruise. Nikon in hand, he snapped an incredible collection of photographs of not just the blissful beaches and sensational architecture. But also of the unforgettable men who joined us on the Adriatic.

His portraits delve into the essence of what we’re all about: Life partners sharing a quiet moment overlooking Dubrovnik. New friends swapping travel stories while suntanning on the upper deck. One man sits boat-side, legs dipped in the balmy waters while he takes the time to drip-dry.

These are the exact moments we cherish on any vacation, and rarely are they photographed so well.
