Gay Brighton Beach

Author: , April 15th, 2015

Brighton PierArtsy, liberal, laid-back Brighton is London’s coolest cousin. It’s an hour train ride from Victoria Station, and it won me over in just one weekend.

More than a seaside resort, its famed Brighton Pier (www.brightonpier.co.uk) offers an amusement park at one end, and cafés, shops, crowds, and fish and chips everywhere else, no matter what the weather. The Pier’s adjacent beach is long, wide, and free, the English Channel laps serenely at its rocky shore, and there are umbrellas, mats, and chairs to rent and people to watch. Should you prefer to see more of them, you might try the very private nudist beach a mile east, Cliff Naturist Beach. It’s shielded from the road and very popular with you know who.

That gay demographic is considered to be about 30,000 strong in this city of 250,000, so let’s call Brighton über-gay- friendly. One of the first cities in England to offer marriage equality meant that many early civil partnership ceremonies were conducted here. The city was also the one-time hangout of Oscar Wilde, who stayed at the seafront Royal Albion Hotel in the latter part of the 19th century. Unfortunately, the Regency-style hotel with its original columns and balconies is a bit sad and faded, these days.

Lesbian Travel: Vacation in Kissimee

Author: , April 14th, 2015

Kissimmee

When I was invited to Kissimmee, Florida to experience the culture, restaurants and attractions, I jumped at the opportunity. I knew timing would be difficult for my family, as I’d been traveling a lot but I was curious about the town neighboring Orlando. And I was eager to escape the cold. Living in New York, Florida is an irresistible winter escape.

Omni Orlando Resort at ChampionsGate is a stately hotel ensconced behind formal arches. The welcoming, spacious lobby is adorned with ornate chandeliers and a marble floor overlooking a lazy river, pools, whirlpools, cabanas, a golf course and a perfect skyline view. The hotel is 16 stories of standard hotel rooms with 2 and 3 bedroom villas off to the side.

My king-sized room featured all the amenities you expect from a luxury hotel along with a soothing view of the pools. Unfortunately, it wasn’t warm enough to take a dip but just being away from the New York winter weather was good enough for me.

Dolly Travels – Dinner on the Eiffel Tower

Author: , April 13th, 2015

Dolly and Frank - Eiffel TowerHello, Everyone,

Yes, indeed. We had three lovely days in Paris. Today turned chilly and rainy again. We contented ourselves with shopping for our dinner. What fun I had. I went to the butcher shop for chicken, then to the vegetable market for ingredients for a chicken stew. Of course I had to go to the wine shop for wine to go into the stew, as well as wine to go into us, with our dinner…on to the boulangerie for our baguette.

The one vegetable I just could not believe was celery. The heads of celery were huge…they were all at least eighteen inches tall. I was not discouraged, though. I went into the supermarket and they sold celery by the piece.

Our stew turned out very good, with chicken and all sorts of vegetables, and our fresh bread and wine.

Yesterday, we had dinner on the first level of the Eiffel Tower. I had made reservations some time ago, from home, so we had priority seating: a window seat overlooking the river and the Trocadero across the river.

What a fabulous meal. For an appetizer, Frank got the most delicious mushroom soup I have ever tasted. (Yes..I did have to try a sip.). I had giant shrimp with avocado and tiny bits of pink grapefruit. We both ordered the rack of lamb for our main dish. Of course, we had wine with the meal, too. The waiter was very attentive, and refilled our glasses before we had a chance to ask for a refill. Our dessert was this fabulous profiterole. I have always had profiteroles as little cream puffs with ice cream or a cream filling and a chocolate sauce.

Finally, after our dessert and a coffee, we left the restaurant and walked around that level of the tower. It was getting windy and chilly by that time, but we were able to take in the view from all sides of the tower. At 9:00, there were twinkling lights all over the tower, for about ten minutes.

We made our way home, walking off the calories of a wonderful meal, and knowing we had just experienced a once-in-lifetime event.

So, we were not too sad today, that we didn’t have another adventure. Last night was definitely an evening to remember.

I will say, “Bon nuit” now and head for bed.

You will hear from me again soon, I know.

Au Revoir,
Dolly

That Gay Backpacker – Instagramming Oaxaca

Author: , April 13th, 2015

Oaxaca - Jaime Davila

Since returning to Oaxaca on New Year’s Eve, my love for this city has been completely cemented. It feels almost as much of a home to me as my own birth place, London, and although I am heading back to Europe in the summer, I have absolutely no doubt that I’ll be living here again at some point in the not too distant future.

You may have noticed that I haven’t been quite so active on the blog across the last six months, but I have been posting regularly to my Instagram account. If you don’t follow me on Instagram, why not? But also, not to worry because I’m going to share my best photos from Oaxaca from the last three months with you right here and now.

Anything Goes

Author: , April 13th, 2015

Anything Goes! ALL ABOARD for this saucy and splendid production of ANYTHING GOES, http://glynnhouse.com/events winner of three 2011 Tony Capitol CenterAwards® including Best Musical Revival and Choreography!  It is one of the greatest musicals in theater history.  Cole Porter’s first-class musical comedy has been  hailed as pure “MUSICAL-COMEDY JOY”. When the S.S. American heads out to sea, etiquette and convention get tossed out the portholes as two unlikely pairs set off on the course to true love. They prove that sometimes destiny needs a little help. They receive assistance from a crew of singing sailors, an exotic disguise and some good old-fashioned blackmail.  Peppering this timeless classic are some of musical theatre’s most memorable standards. Don’t miss this classic – one evening only – April 23.
