Intagrammable Bangkok – Once Upon a Journey

Intagrammable Bangkok - Once Upon a Journey

As the capital city of Thailand, Bangkok is the perfect city to start your travels in Thailand or elsewhere in Asia. And Bangkok is so much more than just a hub, it’s a city with many things to see and do. From beautiful temples (have you ever seen a dragon temple?) to crazy markets to chaotic streets with tuk-tuks everywhere.

We are huge fans of Bangkok and love exploring the city. We found you the best Instagram spots in the city. Are you ready to see the 13 most Instagrammable places in Bangkok?! Grab your camera + outfit and let’s GO!

AIRPLANE GRAVEYARD

Abandoned places are always a bit creepy, but so cool, don’t you think?! The airplane graveyard in Bangkok is a unique place to visit. Always wanted to sit in a cockpit? This is your chance! There are multiple airplanes you can explore and you can take the coolest pictures. It’s not fully abandoned though, there is a family living in one of the airplanes. Be prepared to pay around 200 baht per person to enter the property. You can get to the airplane graveyard by taxi or by river taxi (way cheaper). Go to Wat Sriboonreun (last stop of the Khlong Saen Saeb), and from there it’s just a short walk.

Prague Gay Guide – The Nomadic Boys

Prague Gay Guide - The Nomadic Boys

Prague is one of Europe’s top gay travel destinations and in our opinion, one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Prague is magical, with its striking gothic architecture, magnificent medieval monuments, like something from a fairy tale. It’s no wonder that it’s one of the most visited cities in the world.

We loved strolling through the labyrinth of narrow cobblestone streets that make up the UNESCO listed Old Town and then experiencing the thrilling gay nightlife of Prague in the evening.

Our Prague Gay Guide

Prague is the capital of the Czech Republic, a former Soviet country in Central Europe, now part of the EU. The country is so rich with culture that you can never get bored exploring it. To give you a brief idea, its history date back to the 9th century when it used to be called ‘The Duchy of Bohemia’ under the Great Moravian Empire. It was around this time that Prague Castle was built, one of Prague’s most famous tourist sites. In addition, most of the beautiful and picturesque medieval buildings of the Old Town, like “Charles Bridge” were subsequently built in the 1300s by the Holy Roman Emperor, Charles IV. There’s a lot to see here, which we’ve summarised below, but make sure you also give yourself ample time to check out the dynamic gay nightlife of Prague.

Gay Portland, Oregon – The Gay UK

Author: , February 22nd, 2019

For years, my former boss at South Florida Gay News would rave about Portland, Oregon. He loved the free-spirited nature of the community as well as the abundance of outdoor activities available outside the city. After years of seeing Norm and other friends post breathtaking photos on social media, I thought it was time to give Portland a try.

When I first arrived, I got the feeling that I was in a smaller version of Seattle, but as I spent time in Portland, I quickly discovered that it had a life of its own. I did however speak to some locals and they told me the city has been going through a bit of an identity crisis as of late as they try to compete with Seattle’s economic boom, mostly driven by Amazon and other tech firms. But, why try to be Seattle? Just be Portland.

The entire downtown area is pretty much walkable, with many of the city’s main attractions located within a few miles of each other. What was obvious from the start were the abundance of rainbow flags scattered throughout the city. I think it’s safe to say that Portland may have the highest concentration of rainbow flags per capita than any city I have visited thus far.

My first stop in Portland was The Oregon Jewish Museum and Center for Holocaust Education. Being of Jewish decent, I found it fascinating that this particular attraction would be located in Portland. I wasn’t aware of the city’s extensive Jewish community. The museum explores the legacy of the Jewish experience in Oregon and teaches the universal lessons of the Holocaust. The museum features rotating exhibitions that showcase Jewish contributions to world culture, issues of Jewish identity, and the forces of prejudice. They also offer an extensive program of films, lectures, and concerts throughout the year, which cover a wide range of topics relating to Jewish art, culture, and heritage.

Gay Travel Insurance – The Nomadic Boys

Gay travel insurance - The Nomadic Boys

Travel insurance is a must for any trip, regardless of what you’re doing or where you’re going. Having good cover before jetting off is one of our main tips for staying safe when travelling.

If for whatever reason something goes wrong during your trip, knowing you have travel insurance is really helpful. We experienced this first hand when Seb had to rush home for a family medical emergency. We were (thankfully!) able to make a successful claim on our travel insurance.

In some scenarios, travel insurance is not only important, but a necessary obligation, in particular for certain tourist visa applications and activities like scuba diving. Be sure to read the fine print, as some travel insurance plans do not cover scuba diving if you dive below a specified number of feet or dive without a dive master.

In the past we used to purchase our travel insurance as individuals. But since we got engaged, we regard ourselves as a family unit and completely expect others to do so as well, especially the company from which we are purchasing an insurance policy! Sadly, not all insurance companies do so, which is one of the many reasons why we believe seeking out gay friendly travel insurance companies is so important.
