Gay Travel To England And Italy

England has long been a destination for both straight and gay travel, but when it comes to choosing a location for a gay vacation, England is about as welcoming and inviting as they come. An active, visible LGBT community, abundant gay events and establishments, and gay rights that far outshine what has been granted in the United States, England is an ideal setting for gay vacations. With the lively London nightlife, beautiful Brighton beaches and the picturesque countryside that gives way to sprawling urban skylines, England has much to offer for any kind of gay travel tourist.

Old Compton Street and the Soho district of London is the center of gay and lesbian life and is a must-see for any gay or lesbian traveler on a gay vacation to England. With a multitude of gay bars, businesses, restaurants and clubs, Soho has the most active, visible gay community in England. Soho is also centrally located near many of London’s landmarks and world-famous neighborhoods, such as Chelsea, Kensington, Piccadilly Circus, Leicester Square and Covent Garden. Plus, thanks to an expansive public transportation system, all of London’s offerings are easily accessible from this gay neighborhood. For travelers heading north, Manchester has another large gay and lesbian community, including a gay village around Canal Street that offers numerous gay bars, pubs and clubs.

For a gay vacation on the seashore, gay men and lesbians should head south to Brighton, often called Soho by the Sea, to stroll through quaint pathways in search of extraordinary shops and boutiques, or along the pier and pebble beach. Home to the second largest gay and lesbian community, Brighton is a popular gay vacation destination where gay and lesbian travelers enjoy relaxing at cafés, dining, or going out on the town in Kempton, Brighton’s center for gay life. Another gay vacation option in England is Newcastle Gateshead, which is home to a fashionable gay village with gay pubs, cafés, clubs and bars.

Gay travelers will find gay-owned and gay-friendly accommodations in all of England’s regions, including establishments that exclusively serve the gay travel community or specifically gay men. Gay and lesbian travelers who choose to work with a travel agency well-versed in planning gay vacations in England will benefit from working with a travel agent who can suggest the gay-friendly or gay-owned hotel, bed and breakfast or other lodgings option that will best meet your needs. If camping is on the agenda for your England gay vacation, gay-owned and gay-friendly campgrounds are available, including Out in the Open, a gay-owned campsite in Cornwall, and Brighthouse Farm, offering a six-acre campground, bed and breakfast and self-catering lodgings in Suffolk.

Italy is a land of art, history, architecture, romance and Vespas. Italy’s exceptional scenery, rich history and deeply entrenched culture have made this enticing country a popular destination for both straight and gay holidays, as well as a popular setting for books, movies and plays. Singles, couples, families and groups of friends flock to Italy throughout the year for the fashion, the food and some of the most famous art and architecture in the world. Whether your ideal gay vacation includes meandering narrow, ancient roads in Rome or Venice, languid drives through the countryside searching for lesser known historical sites and visiting wineries, wiling away an afternoon in a museum in Florence or experiencing Milan’s enticing nightlife, Italy is an ideal destination for gay vacations.

While Rome and Milan have the widest selection of LGBT bars and clubs, gay travel participants will find that Geneva, Florence, Bologna, Venice, Padua and many other tourist hotspots also have gay-owned and LGBT-friendly establishments offering a welcoming atmosphere for a night on the town during your gay vacation to Italy. LGBT-owned and LGBT-friendly hotels can be found throughout Italy, such as the Hotel Porta Rossa – which is the second oldest hotel in Italy and just a short walk from numerous world-famous attractions, such as Michelangelo’s David in the Galleria dell’Accademia – or the LGBT-owned La Quircia Rosa and Villa le Masse in Tuscany.

There is a large LGBT presence in each of Italy’s larger urban areas providing many options for your gay tours to Italy, particularly Rome, Florence, Bologna and Milan, with Milan being generally accepted as the most gay-friendly Italian City and among the most popular destinations for gay vacations. Gay pride events take place throughout the country and there are a few large gay and lesbian film festivals, including the Turin International Gay and Lesbian Film Festival, the Festival del Cinema Gay Lesbico e della Cultura Queer in Milan and the Florence Queer Festival.

If one of the goals of your gay holiday to Italy is to experience as much of the history, art and culture as possible during your stay, tours are an absolute necessity.

Red sea diving and snorkeling – a wonderful experience

Red Sea Diving and Snorkeling – A Wonderful Experience

If you are a lover of the ocean and spend any time in Egypt, then you owe it to yourself to try the diving and snorkeling that are available in the Red Sea. Heading to the beach of the Red Sea is an absolute essential, as the pristine waters provide the ideal conditions for diving past times. A chance to explore the Red Sea and discover just why it has such a great reputation for the beautiful views and unforgettable snorkeling and diving experiences. It is surely not to be missed.

One of the main reasons why the Red Sea is a place that must be visited, is because of the life under the ocean. It is one of the most wildly diverse areas in the world. There are more than 1100 species of catalogued fish, where you will find approximately ten percent that are unique to the location. This rich diversity is due to the 5000 to 7000 year old reefs that extend along the coastline. These reefs offer shelter, not only the 1100 or so species of fish, but also to approximately 44 different species of shark. If you are considering going on a dive in the Red Sea, you should certainly be prepared to experience beautiful specimens of sea life with exquisite clarity.

There are widely available services for diving and snorkeling that are very keen and eager to help you get on your way on the Egyptian coasts of the Red Sea. There are certain services available which offer full instruction by fully licensed and experienced staff for snorkeling or scuba equipment. Or if you are a fully qualified diver you will simply have pointed out to you the best locations. All diving equipment can be rented, however, you are more than welcome to use your own personal equipment, if you have it with you.

Very often not thought of, but snorkeling is an ideal sport for children. They can be introduced to some of the most beautiful places on the planet. Of course, it is absolutely necessary that your child be comfortable under the water and wearing a mask, in order for them to experience such a breathtaking opportunity. It is a good idea to get your child used to wearing a mask before arriving at the Red Sea. Perhaps your child could wear a mask whilst in the bath in order to get used to the feeling of it. But remember that this is only if your child wants to.

One of the best reasons for visiting the Red Sea and taking up the opportunity of snorkeling, is the opportunity to experience a living ecosystem which is in full action. Schools of fish interacting can be seen along with solitary fish darting around each other in the coral reefs, right before your very own eyes. Keep an eye out for the symbiotic relationship of the clown fish and the sea anemone. As the clown fish amazingly glide between the poisonous tentacles of the sea anemones, watch as the colorful stingers float in the water.

Dahab is a small town on the southeast coast of the Sinai Peninsula, which is a spectacular place to dive. This former Bedouin town is internationally renowned for scuba diving and snorkeling, and there are many reefs available that are adjacent to the shore.

One site that is recommended for skilled divers, as this idyllic spot has a reputation for danger, is the Blue Hole. The Blue Hole is a 100 meter deep and 50 meter wide cave, which is only a few miles to the north, that holds a variety of marine life, which is absolutely awe-inspiring.

One of Egypt’s favorite attractions is Ras Muhammad National Park. This is yet another dive site, which is certainly worth considering. This park was established by the government as a marine reserve in 1983. It holds more than 200 species of corals, 40 species of starfish and more than 150 species of crustaceans. Ras Mohammed National Park certainly earns its international reputation as one of the world’s best diving locations. At times, and with a little luck, you can also catch sight of the rare green sea turtle and the hawksbill sea turtle.

If you and your family are considering a visit to Egypt, then snorkeling and diving in the Red Sea is certainly something that you should try. There is, of course, the added problem, that, once you have taken you first dive and seen the wonders that are on offer below the water, you may not want to return to land!!

A vacation in disneyland

A Vacation in Disneyland

To you, Disneyland is all about fun, excitement, and activities – but you would be wrong because not only that, Disneyland is also about relaxation and pampering. The pampering you gain from Disneyland may not be as best as you would probably have from a world class spa, but it would give you enough relaxation and make you feel special like the other world spa do.

The easiest way to get pampered on your Disneyland vacation is to stay at one of the Disneyland resorts, and then upgrading your room to the other room that offers Concierge services which would cost you a bit higher and the room price would be up to $300 per night, but the service you get would bring you out of this world.

This is because, first of all, your room would be greatly nicer with Concierge servic. With this, you would be offered with free bottles of water, soft drinks, coffee, and tea at all times. You can also check in and out faster at the Concierge check in counter, and a nightly turndown service is also provided.

Moreover, you will gain accesses to the Concierge lounge which will really pamper you! You will enjoy a continental breakfast in the lounge every morning. And you can also request a room serviced breakfast. In the afternoon, while your kids are watching Disney Videos, you will be also enjoying tasty wines in the lounge .

There are numbers of perks available with the Concierge service, which would be different in each resort. To determine whether the Concierge service will benefit you and your family, just call the resort that you are interested in and ask considering, and simply ask what perks are providedwith this service, asking them to ask their concierge desk to ensure accurate information.

Although the cost to upgrade is a bit high, but it would definitely worth you money when considering your dream of all of the pampering and special treatments that you and your family will enjoy, and especially when you are offered free breakfast and drinks, this cost is pretty worth paying. In fact, when you have a big family, you may find that the value of the free breakfast and the free drinks even makes the entire Disneyland trip even less expensive for you!

Once you’ve experienced the Concierge Service on a trip to Disneyland, your future Disneyland trips may be less satisfied for you as the Concierge Service is out of this world, and enhancing your trip and making it such a relaxing and enjoyable trip!
