I’ve got another destination for you to add to your travel bucket list. Have you thought about traveling to San Miguel de Allende, Mexico? If you’re up for baroque spanish architecture, rich culture and history and beautiful sights around every rustic corner, this destination is the one for you. Go to Juarez Park where the street lamps illuminate the trees and mariachi bands can be found performing classic songs. Right around the corner is the Parroquia de San Miguel Arcángel, a 17th century church that is an exemplary example of baroque spanish architecture. If you’re looking to get in touch with the tastes of San Miguel, check out the Market where you can purchase some delicious traditional dishes, spices and fresh vegetables and fruits. Also check out the Vinicola Toyan Winery, where you descend 45 feet below the ground in a cave where you are met with an array of in-house wines being fermented beneath the city.

779 - ENCORE-Key West Paints a Permanent Rainbow To Welcome All

Welcome to Gay Travel Today! I’m Teraj and I’ll be your guide as we explore, engage and indulge in the world of LGBTQ+ travel today.

Key West has always been known for being a Pride hub, but in honoring equality and celebrating diversity, the conch republic decided to paint several of its crosswalks with rainbows. The crosswalks at the intersection of Duval and Petronia street are now sporting a bright kaleidoscope of colors, and it will for some time since the paint is designed to withstand heavy traffic by foot and automobile, guaranteeing lasting LGBTQ+ Pride for years to come. Just as Key West mayor, Teri Johnston, said, “The rainbow crosswalks mean that everybody is welcome, everybody is equal, everybody is recognized, and that we do really abide by the ‘One Human Family’ spirit. Everybody is a part of Key West.” We love to see it! What is your favorite experience in Key West? Let us know by using the #GayTravelToday and #Sagitravel hashtags.

778 - ENCORE-Post-Pandemic Travel Essentials

Welcome to Gay Travel Today! I’m Teraj and I’ll be your guide as we explore, engage and indulge in the world of LGBTQ+ travel today.

Looking to venture out a little this summer? USA Today published an article with 12 things we can easily implement into our travel routines to stay as healthy and comfortable as possible when traveling by air or ground this year. Obviously, using a face mask and bringing disinfecting sprays, wipes and hand sanitizers are essential. TSA is allowing for up to 12 ounce bottles of hand sanitizer, so don’t hold back! Other important items to use when traveling are reusable snack bags and water bottles. Bringing these items from home limits the number of potentially contaminated goods you could come in contact with when fueling up during a trip. Bring a portable phone charger to stay away from using public outlets or cords. Last thing to bring is a neck pillow and travel sized blanket. Many airlines have stopped offering these items, so don’t be stuck without them! What are your post-pandemic essential travel items? Share them with us by using the #GayTravelToday and #Sagitravel hashtags.
