Europe is a mosaic of culture, cuisine and history. Its people vary not from country to country, but city to city. And while many world-famous landmarks reside within it’s borders, so do many under-appreciated gems.

Below you’ll find our complete catalogue of European gay travel experiences.  Continue reading “Just the Trips: Europe”

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.

In 2009, the same courts decriminalized homosexuality only to reinstate it in 2013. Fingers-crossed this ruling holds strong. Continue reading “India Decriminalizes Homosexuality”

3 Airports to Get Excited About

 

NAICM

We fly a LOT.

Between the four of us in Out Adventures’ tiny Toronto office we collect Air Miles, SkyMiles and Island Miles. We’re part of the AAdvantage Program, we have a Fly Away Rewards card and up in Canada we’re part of both the Aeroplan and VIPorter program. We’ve touched down in every continent and have flown most airlines. Sooo you’ll have to forgive us for being avid about aviation.

Two weeks ago, the four of us crowded around Rob’s desktop Google imaging Mexico City’s upcoming airport NAICM. It was between our Oohs and Ahhs Rob exclaimed, “Hey, can we blog about the best airports being built right now?!”.

And here we are, a few weeks later with three airports we can’t help but gush over. Starting with – you guessed it – NAICM.

Gudni Kristinsson

Gudni Kristinsson, who has led our Iceland getaways since 2012, is best remembered by guests for his delicious smile and huggable persona.

He’s always the first to snorkel the Silfra fissure. The first suited up and into the Blue Lagoon before you’ve started to strip. And he’ll finish his first pint before you’ve screamed “Skál”.

Since he’s a a massive part of this August’s Iceland Pride Adventure, we had him over (okay, we Skyped) to let him introduce himself.
