It’s not just the 19 gay bars and clubs that make the Mexican Pacific Coast destination of Puerto Vallarta a gay mecca, but they certainly help and keep the evenings entertaining. After spending a few days in PV for its annual Pride festivities, this year with a 15-day agenda that brought together thousands of locals and visitors for the Pride parade and to celebrate this year’s approval of same-sex marriage in the state of Jalisco (where Puerto Vallarta is located), I really got to see the power of the beach escape for the LGBT community – and how it’s been blossoming for decades.
Another summer of LGBT Pride is coming up, and in case you’re still deciding on a Pride event to check out or a new one to experience, hopefully this little calendar can help you plan where to go and what to see the rest of this year:

Fresh from a week in Iceland with Gray Line Worldwide, I got a chance to go through my photos and picked out a bunch that hopefully will inspire you to visit the beautiful island country.
When planning the trip with Gray Line, I of course made sure to include the Blue Lagoon on my list of to-dos, and to see different national parks, waterfalls, the glacier and other natural wonders Iceland has. Some surprises to me were the unique horses, the amazing food (hands down the best dairy I’ve ever had), and how cool the black sand beaches were.
It’s been quite a busy few weeks and I’m finally getting a chance to breathe! After visiting Panama for the first time just before my birthday this year while on a fantastic trip hosted by Superfeet (photo diary to come soon!), I realized how many different parts in Latin America I’ve gotten to visit and how it was wonderful to visit them while in my twenties. With that in mind, I got to write up a round-up story for AskMen of destinations south of the U.S. boarder that would be great for travelers to visit before turning 30 if they could.

Just before the holidays, I joined a few other bloggers as part of a Men Who Blog trip to experience the Carnival Sunshine ship. We journeyed on an eight-day cruise through the southern Caribbean with stops Aruba, Bonaire, and Grand Turk with days at sea to experience all the ship had to offer. This was my first my cruise as a grown up, with my previous cruise adventure being one when I was a young teen (about a decade ago since I’m still a twenty-something). After flying into Fort Lauderdale from Westchester, going on the bus shuttle to the dock, and checking into the cruise, my adventure started.
While there’s literally dozens of things to do, see and experience onboard a Carnival ship, these were my personal favorites: Read the rest of this entry
Fresh back from the holidays and my first trip of the new year, I’ve started contributing to Oyster.com and published my first piece just before the new year. It’s on Mexico City and about things you should know about the city that you might’ve not before. I was very surprised by Mexico City, especially by how massive it was and how many things there was to do there. Below are a few things I liked while I was there pulled from my article: Read the rest of this entry
