13 - Travel Planning Eases Pandemic Stress

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.

Do you catch yourself these days often daydreaming about an epic getaway? Let me tell you, you’re definitely not alone. This might be an excellent time to start planning your next dream vacation. There’s so many amazing deals available if you book now for travel later. Many resorts, hotels, and airlines have less restrictive cancellation policies that you can take advantage of right now. If you’re like me, it might be hard to imagine planning something so far in advance, but there are some benefits. Having something to look forward to and be excited about can boost your mental health and outlook during this pandemic. Bring your partner and friends into the fold to make it a fun activity planning this epic trip. If you really do your research you can strategically support the LGBTQ+ community in the travel industry and in the process discover some fantastic gay-friendly destinations and gay-owned businesses. Imagine a trip to Puerto Rico, dipping your toes in the sand and then walking the streets of Old San Juan while experiencing Puerto Rico’s vibrant LGBTQ culture. And then take a short road trip over to Rincón and have an incredible dinner at the intimate and lesbian-owned Italian restaurant, Mangia Mi. So what dream vacation are you planning for your post-COVID-19 celebration? We’d love to see a photo on social media, so share it and #GayTravelToday and also #Sagitravel.

9 - Celebrating Milestones While Staying Put

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.

Social distancing and restrictions on movement may currently be altering how we celebrate important milestones, birthdays, and anniversaries with our partners. I can imagine that a lot of us have to think outside of the box to celebrate such special occasions during these times. Here’s a few ideas you could try to spice up those stay-at-home special occasions. Pop open Epicurious or a trusted cookbook and try to re-create a favorite meal from one of your past vacations or travels. Make the occasion even more special by adding music that sets the mood and takes you and your partner back to that place and time. Attention is in the detail, so you might want to go all out, dress up, and light some candles to relive those memorable moments. If you try any of these at home, we’d love to see a photo or video on social media. So share it and #GayTravelToday and also #Sagitravel.
