The Iguanas of Guayaquil – Globetrotter Girls

Author: , September 11th, 2017

Iguanas of Guayaquil - Globetrotter Girls

I have to admit that I had never even heard of Guayaquil before I flew to Ecuador. And I don’t know if I would’ve gone there had I not started my trip to the Galápagos Islands in Guayaquil, from where several flights a day leave for Baltra Island in the Galápagos.

When I did do some research about the city, I found a few sights that sounded like they were worth visiting mentioned in travel guides, and I decided that Guayaquil sounded interesting enough to spend a few days after my cruise.

However, the city didn’t make it easy for me to love it. It didn’t wow me with its architecture, and it wasn’t particularly charming. It was rainy and cloudy during my stay, and even though I spent five days in town, I never found a place to eat that I truly loved.

I had read about a park in the city center that supposedly was filled with iguanas, and even though I’d seen plenty of iguanas in the Galápagos Islands, I wasn’t tired of them yet, and I was excited to check out the park and see if it was indeed filled with iguanas.

The guide book had not lied: there were dozens of iguanas hanging out everywhere in the small park, with people touching them as if they were fluffy little bunnies instead of leathery reptiles.

I was amazed how gentle they were and seemingly unafraid of people – almost like their distant relatives out in the Galapagos Islands. A lady had a stash of ‘iguana food’ on one of the benches – basically just lettuce cut into small pieces – which she was selling. I invested 50 cents in a bag of lettuce and within minutes I was surrounded by hungry iguanas of all shapes and sizes. That afternoon ended up being my fondest memory of Guayaquil.

Gay Thailand - Ko Poda

LGBTI people are embraced throughout gay Thailand – not just in the cities!

Thai Islands – Ko Pha Ngan

Sponsored: Ko Pha Ngan in Thailand has its fair share of beautiful beaches, but with much of the interior covered by tropical forest, this is an island which is great for those who like to trek or connect with nature.

The island also has a reputation for being a spiritual location with a number of yoga, meditation, and detox centres on the island. Ko Pha Ngan is also famous, some would say infamous, for the Full Moon Party. Enjoy the party, but do keep your wits about you and exercise caution.

National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum

National Cowboy & Western Heritage MuseumIn our travels we always enjoy visiting all types of Museums. We were recently in Oklahoma City and visited the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum which houses the largest collection of Cowboy memorabilia in the country. Actually they have over 28,000 Western and American Indian art works and artifacts including the world’s most extensive collection of rodeo photographs, barbed wire, saddlery and early rodeo trophies.

National Cowboy & Western Heritage MuseumIt was established in 1955 and has involved into what it is now. The museum has more than 200,00 square feet of display space. Their collection includes of 2,000 works of western art including landscapes, portraits, still lives and sculptures by 19th and 20th Century artists with more than 200 by Charles Russell, Frederic Remington, Albert Bierstadt, Solo Borglum, Thurmond Restuettenhall, Robert Longhead and Charles Schreyvogel.

National Cowboy & Western Heritage MuseumThe museum has an authentic late 1800’s Western town where you can stroll the streets and look into store windows and walk into some of the furnished building. You will actually think that you are REALLY there back in the day! The town is called Prosperity Junction and is 14,000 square feet of space. There are three separate ‘Halls of Fame’ at the museum. One is for the Rodeo Hall of Fame, another for the Hall of Great Western Performers from the movies and the Hall of Great Westerners for actual people who lived through the frontier times.

There are many different galleries and one of our favorites was the American Cowboy Gallery which dealt with the life of working cowboys living and working on  their ranches. It shows how they really lived. Outside, beautifully landscaped gardens flank the Children’s Cowboy Corral and other children’s spaces.

National Cowboy & Western Heritage MuseumMore than 10 million visitors from around the world have visited the Museum to gain better understanding of the West, a region and history that permeates our national culture. It will take several hours to see and do everything at the Museum so plan your day well.

Lesbian Greece – The Best Beaches

Author: , September 9th, 2017

Lesbian Greece - Santorini Black Sand Beach

So you want to go to Greece. Why? For the delicious food, the wonderful people and timeless history? And, and of course, Greek beaches. Greece has hundreds of beaches – each of them spectacular in their own way – if, for nothing else, it’s Greece! Where better to soak up some sun? Nestled close to the ever-alluring, impossibly clear blue Mediterranean Sea.

What kind of beach-goer are you? A toes-in-the-golden-sand beach person, a crowded, party-beach person, a quiet romantic cove seeker, just-want-to-be-close-to-the-water beach seeker or a stunning-beach-view person? Or maybe you’re a cooler, beach umbrella and full prep beach goer, a walk-the-shoreline bikini strutter, or someone who just-wants-to-shed-it-all-and-let-the-sun-kiss-you-all-over kinda naked beach lover?

GoGirlfriend personally visited each of these beaches on our 5 island Greek tour and we’ve got the must-visit highlights.
