US LGBTQ and Pride events in 2020

Let’s get one thing straight — LGBTQ people know how to throw one hell of a party, and in the United States, there’s no shortage of creativity when it comes to curating a queer shindig. From ski-slope soirees to fetish-themed festivals, the only thing more difficult than choosing which events to attend in 2020 is choosing who to vote for in the Democratic primary. Luckily, choosing from this list of epic LGBTQ gatherings is a win-win situation. Editor’s note: Queer culture doesn’t begin and e...

Best places to travel in April 2020

Despite an old adage about April showers, the fourth month of the year is really when life starts to return to much of the planet. The long winter has defrosted and left with it cherry blossoms, baseball, and plenty of end-of-winter parties, combining to make this one of the most enticing months to get out and see the world. But the best places to travel in April aren’t always the most obvious, where festivals you may never have heard of offer better times than well-worn destinations. So read...

How to Do Disney Parks Solo

I’ve done three solo Disney trips in the past three years. Two visits to Disneyland, and one to Walt Disney World.

Walt Disney World, Disneyland Raise Prices Travel Pulse The tradeoff of paying for a ticket to Walt Disney World or Disneyland is, of course, living the moment. A day at either park is one of the most incredible—or magical, if you want to use Disney’s own words—experiences you can have at any age. But the experience continues to be costly. For the second time in eight months, Disney World has raised its ticket prices. Additional coronavirus cases on the Diamond Princess Travel ...

Comparing Disneyland & Walt Disney World: Honest Thoughts

It was only two years ago when I first visited a Disney theme park. I’d always wanted to go but, for some weird reason, just hadn’t. That changed when I had the opportunity to visit Disneyland in California. Since then I’ve returned four times, visited Walt Disney World in Florida twice and even spent a day at Disneyland Paris. Still, I am nowhere near being a Disney expert, but my experiences in the parks do provide me with an interesting opportunity to step back, appraise them from a pseu...

What to do at Disney World at night

Most visitors to Walt Disney World are up at the crack of dawn to be one of the first through the gates at the resort’s amusement parks. Somehow, though, certain magical Disney moments are made even more enchanting as the sun sets and gives way to twilight. On your next trip, skip the early morning alarm for at least one day, sleep in, and maybe drink an extra cup of coffee so that you can rally into the wee hours (well, for Disney anyway) because there are some Disney experiences that are be...

Travel is a Privilege

Updated: 1/16/2020 | January 16, 2020 Let’s face it: not everyone is going to able to travel. Whether it’s money, family obligations, or circumstance, travel is out of reach for a large percentage of the world’s population. In the “quit your job to travel the world” cheerleading that happens so often on travel websites (including this one), we often forget that it’s not so easy for everyone. Yes, years on the road have shown me that, for many of us, our inability to travel is partly a mindset i...

The Ups and Downs of Visiting Walt Disney World As A Solo Adult

It seems strange for me to think about but, until just a couple of years ago, I had never before visited a Disney Park. After my first trip to Disneyland in Anaheim though I was hooked and it has since become an important part of my travel life. Some will poo-poo it, but that’s their issue not mine. I love visiting Disney Parks for many reasons, but at its core the experience is pure and innocent fun, the likes of which is all too rare to find. Even though I had visited Disneyland several t...

LGBTQ travel guide to Amsterdam

The Dutch word gezellig has no proper English equivalent but roughly translates to “cozy,” “pleasant,” or “comfortable” — a feeling of well-being that arises from a person or place. As an LGBTQ+ traveler, to visit Amsterdam is to know what this means. Gezellig lives in the tulips that spring from the flower boxes in front of 17th-century townhouses and the choral chime of bike bells cling-clanging through the air. Strolling along the snug houseboats that line the city’s iconic canals is geze...

My First Visit to Walt Disney World – Thoughts & Impressions

There was very little doubt in my mind that I would love my first Walt Disney World experience and yet I had put off the trip for quite a long time. Even after visiting Disneyland in California four times in less than a year, the very idea of Walt Disney World intimidated me deeply. I had become used to the very compact and intimate feeling of Disneyland and I knew that the sheer size of its Florida counterpart would be a totally different experience. And it was, but that doesn’t mean it was ba...
