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.

Magical Morocco - Once Upon a Journey

Morocco might be the most photogenic country we’ve visited so far. Okay, many countries come close (such as Mongolia and Myanmar – maybe it’s countries that start with an M-kinda thing?), but Morocco is incredibly magical (another M-word!).

Sorting out a collection for this photo gallery was incredibly hard, which is why we selected more than just a few.

Murals on the Berlin Wall – Keep Calm and Wander

Berlin Wall - Keep Calm and Wander

The murals on the East Side Gallery of the Berlin Wall is a fascinating display of past, present, and future. Though the wall is covered in vibrant colors and eye-catching art, they can’t hide the city’s history. It’s engraved on, within, and beyond that wall.

Today, the remnants of the infamous Berlin Wall still stands along the bank of the River Spree on the Kreuzberg side. It’s a reminder for everyone to see that Walls don’t work. 😉

In 1961, East Germany started constructing the Berlin Wall to get rid of the “fascist” from West Germany to enter the East. Anyone who would escape from the East would be shot dead. A total of 171 residents who tried to flee didn’t make it. The Wall was dismantled on November 9, 1989, when people from both sides of the Wall were allowed to walk/cross freely again in both territories. However, the reunification between the East and West Germany only happened officially on October 3, 1990.

Gay Amsterdam, More Than Damn Thrilling – The Gay UK

Author: , February 13th, 2019

Paris may try to lure you in with its reputation for style and sophistication, Berlin with its unconventional ways and underground creativity and San Francisco with its liberal mindset. Gay Amsterdam, however, has all of this but doesn’t feel the need to flaunt it. It is the coolest looking person in the club, and it knows just how cool it is. If Amsterdam didn’t exist, you would think it’s too unbelievable to be real, a fictional utopia, the product of an over-zealous mind.

As always the Eurostar journey was effortless, the perfect combination of speed, practicality and comfort, which could almost be the motto on the coat of arms of the city I was heading for. You can travel directly from London to Amsterdam for as little as £35 per person, and Amsterdam to London (with a stop in Brussels) for £65.50 per person. Time your return to London smartly and spend the day in Brussels at no extra cost.

My destination was The Toren hotel, only 15 minutes walk from Amsterdam Centraal Station, nestled seductively in the iconic canal belts of the city and the perfect location from which to explore the main attractions at the heart of Amsterdam. Chic, theatrical and more than a little bit mysterious, this old building blends warmth and comfort and is rich with vivid patterns and lush interiors.

The Ultimate Guide to the Gay Florida Keys – The Nomadic Boys

Gay Florida Keys - The Nomadic Boys

The best sunsets EVER!

We’ve travelled the world extensively, and can hands down say that when it comes to stunning sunsets, the Keys of south Florida is the best place to come. There are of course many other reasons to visit the Keys: the terrific gay scene of Key West, the diving in the many coral reefs, beautiful beaches, and of course the star culinary highlight, the Key Lime pie! But for us, those magnificent sunsets stole the show.

The Florida Keys are a string of thousands of tropical islands stretching about 120 miles (193km) off the southern tip of Florida, between the Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico. The word “Keys” comes from the Spanish word “cayo”, which means ‘small island’.

The Keys begin at the southeastern coast of the Florida peninsula, about 15 miles (24 km) south of Miami. They then extend from Key Largo, all the way to Key West, which is the westernmost of the inhabited islands.

In this gay guide, we’ve set out the best gay hotels to stay, favourite gay hangouts and best things to do.

Travel in the Gay Florida Keys

Key West is not only the most touristic part of the Florida Keys but also the main gay hotspot of the region. Whilst there are no official gay clubs/bars in the rest of the Florida Keys, there are still plenty of fascinating places to check out.

For the best gay bars, clubs, parties and events, be sure to check out our detailed gay guide to Key West.
