Christopher’s by the Bay – Gay Owned Bed & Breakfast in Provincetown, Massachusetts

Christopher's by the Bay - Gay Owned Bed & Breakfast in Provincetown, Massachusetts

On northern edge of Massachusetts’ Cape Cod, between sea and sand, you’ll find Provincetown – a vibrant, gay friendly New England village. Provincetown is a unique, lovely place, with the warm sands of Race Point and the shimmering reflection of autumn sunsets over Provincetown Bay.

Christopher’s by the Bay, a Provincetown bed and breakfast, is in the heart of this historic Atlantic harbor town, in a beautiful mid-nineteenth century home on a quiet street.

We’re close to everything – get out and explore the east end art galleries, or take the short bike ride to Herring Cove beach. Or stay in and relax with a good book in our quiet, beautiful garden.

Our house has a long history. It has been home to school teachers, artists, fishermen and sea captains. Many of Provincetown’s records were destroyed in a fire in the 1920’s, but more recent records show that it has been an inn since the ’70’s. It was originally called the Swanberry Inn, then Carpe Diem. The Inn has had the current name, Christopher’s by the Bay, since 1999.

Lesbian Ljubljana – Our Taste for Life

Lesbian Ljubljana - Our Taste for Life

1 Day in lesbian Ljubljana might not seem like much time when, in fact, it’s quite enough to get acquainted with the city. And to help you make the very most of your time, I’ve put together the best 1 Day Ljubljana Itinerary. We recently spent just over 24 hours in Ljubljana, so we can share what we got up to, and what we consider to be the best places to visit in Ljubljana in a day. We cover all of the Ljubljana hotspots, where to eat, sleep, and party, as well as all of our top tips, to ensure you have the best possible time exploring the city.

It’s impossible to skip past Ljubljana when planning a trip to Slovenia. The capital serves as a gateway to Lake Bled, Triglav National Park, and other areas of the country. We knew very little about the city before our recent visit, but were thankful we took some time to look around. What we discovered didn’t feel like a city at all. Instead, Ljubljana (pronounced loob-yah-nah) appears like a whimsical little town. Legends of heroes and dragons add to its charm, and you can’t help but feel you’ve stepped into a make-believe children’s book.

Ljubljana is a small and compact city, but it has a lot to offer. On the one hand, you have beautiful architecture and charming cobbled streets. On the other, a more alternative side with its street art, cool restaurants, and quirky cafes. You can easily cover the main attractions in one day; however, if you find yourself with more time to spare, it won’t be wasted. We could never tire of relaxing days alongside the Ljubljanica River drinking coffee and immersing in the laidback vibe of the city.
