As we gear up for the 30th annual Toronto AIDs Walk on Sunday, September 16, we wanted to share our friend Michael Coulombe’s inspiring story of conquering The Inca Trail.

India Decriminalizes Homosexuality

We at Out Adventures are elated to share the news that in a watershed moment, the Indian supreme court has decriminalized homosexuality… again. A bench of the country’s five highest judges ruled a ban on sex “against the order of nature” was unconstitutional.

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.  Continue reading “In Focus: Croatia”
