936 - ENCORE-Carbon Removal Tech On The Rise

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.

Carbon offsetting is probably the last thing on your mind since the coronavirus put a wrench in travel plans, but updates are in the works! Before the pandemic, only about 1% of airline passengers paid to carbon offset, so participating in this program wasn’t all too popular to begin with. Experts have seen a significant drop in global emissions due to COVID-19 related shutdowns, but when we return to any type of travel norm, voluntary carbon offsetting will be incredibly important. Breaking through the glass ceiling is Climeworks, a Swiss start-up that built a model that takes carbon out of the air and turns it into stone. This method has been proven to effectively remove emissions from the atmosphere instantly, safely and permanently through natural mineralisation that safely returns CO2 back into the atmosphere. Were you in the camp of carbon offsetting programs before the pandemic? If not, would this new model change your mind? Let us know by using the #GayTravelToday and #Sagitravel hashtags.

935 - ENCORE-Stress-Free Gaycation

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.

If you’re planning to hit up a new vacation spot in the states this year, it totally goes without say, that you should try lodging at a gay resort! These locations provide a stress-and judgement-free environment, so you can be your true and authentic self. One of the many highlights is the Vista Grande. This resort oozes Palm Springs retro-chic with its pale green and blush pink aesthetic. The grounds are noted as being the best part – a blue lagoon, complete with a waterfall, adds to the picturesque surroundings and desert mountain poolside view. Boatslip Resort in Provincetown offers a relaxing time with bright and breezy sea-front rooms and its well known “Tea Dance” event that is hosted every summer afternoon by the pool. AxelBeach Miami is an exclusive paradise whose facilities – such as a pool, the Sky Bar overlooking Washington Avenue, Spa & Gym, the restaurant, and Lobby Bar – all will ensure that you enjoy an authentic Axel experience in Miami Beach. Last but not least, is Alexander’s Guesthouse in Key West which is right by the waterside and housed in a gorgeously restored 1902 building with white clapboard walls and deep green vegetation. Check out the full list by “Queer in the World” and tell us where you would like to stay using the #GayTravelToday and #Sagitravel hashtags.

932 - ENCORE-See Newport, Rhode Island, Seaside

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.

Let’s head to Newport, Rhode Island for a little bit of seaside comfort, delicious food and rich history. One of the best ways to get a beautiful view of the New England-esque landscape is by ferry. Once arriving on the dock, you can grab delicious dishes from mom-and-pop restaurants like Mission, which serve up what locals call the “best burger in town” and thick-cut, crispy french fries. Be sure to check out the port’s beautiful mansions like “The Breakers,” which is the most famous of the Newport mansions, because it was once the Vanderbilt’s summer cottage. Another place full of history is the Redwood Library, which is the nation’s oldest, continuously operating community library, filled with historic paintings, sculptures and a rotating art gallery. The Newport Art Museum also features unique works and exhibits of antique and modern art, like that of queer artist Caleb Cole. Have you been to Newport, Rhode Island?
