Maitland Manor Bed & Breakfast – Olympic Peninsula Gay Friendly B&B

Maitland Manor Bed & Breakfast - Olympic Peninsula Gay Friendly B&B

Luxurious Olympic Peninsula Gay Friendly B&B

Google top rated bed and breakfast hotels in Port Angeles and Maitland Manor shows up at the top of the list. Opened in 2019 by Sydney and Alex, this Olympic Peninsula gay friendly B&B has quickly gained a 5-star reputation for upscale luxury, beds that will have you hitting snooze a few times, and especially their complimentary 3-course gourmet breakfast and house made baked goods. This place is a great spot for outdoor enthusiasts who also want to indulge their inner foodie. Journalist and travel reporter Katie Boer said, “breakfast was pure art!”

Located in a completely updated 1926 Tudor style home, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer called the inn “packed with character” for its juxtaposition of preserved historic architectural features with contemporary, clean lines and décor throughout. No doilies or fussy wallpaper in the place!

In fact, guest reviews often comment on the comfort and relaxed atmosphere of the suites, common areas, and gardens of the inn, while still feeling pampered and special. Some have called the experience “upscale cozy,” surrounded by luxury, but comfortable enough to kick off your shoes, put your feet up on the sofa, and enjoy the warmth of the fireplace and a great book.

But our Olympic Peninsula gay friendly B&B’s in-town location may be one of the best reasons to stay here. Located just twelve blocks from the waterfront in the city of Port Angeles, you’ll be close to everything, with the added bonus of views of the Salish Sea and Hurricane Ridge.

Visiting Estes Park With Kids – 2TravelDads

Estes Park with kids - 2TravelDads

Colorado is full of all kinds of wonderful small towns, from old mining towns to ski villages, the prairie and the mountains. Our favorite Colorado mountain town is Estes Park. It’s cute, surrounded by epic landscapes and is the gateway to Rocky Mountain National Park. We escaped the bustle of Denver for four days and have come up with our best activities for families planning to do in Estes Park with kids.

If you aren’t into lounging by the pool, this mountain town is going to be your new favorite getaway (and I know there are a few pools to lounge by there too). Check out our top things to do in this Colorado village.

Exploring Downtown Estes Park with Kids

In Washington State we have a great town called Leavenworth that’s really great to wander through and explore, and it’s done up in a Bavarian style which just adds to the fun. This place is a little like that in that it’s been built and designed to echo some of the picturesque mountain villages of Europe while still being characteristically Colorado.

Gay Kathmandu, Nepal – The Nomadic Boys

Gay Kathmandu, Nepal - The Nomadic Boys

Here’s our travel guide to gay Kathmandu, with all the best gay friendly hotels, bars, restaurants and things to do.

Chaotic, messy, loud, colorful, captivating, and completely disorganized!

That was our first impression of Kathmandu as we drove into the city from the airport to our hotel in Thamel. The traffic was all over the place, with people, motorbikes, two-wheelers, taxis, and buses all negotiating tight narrow roads… yet somehow it all works seamlessly!

We completely fell in love with this city. Yes, it’s messy and slightly disorderly, but there’s something magical about it that just gets in your skin and makes you quickly fall in love with it.

Visiting Gay Kathmandu

Kathmandu was our base to start our Himalayan trekking adventures around Nepal. In fact, most gay travelers heading to the city are here for the same reason. The tourism industry here is all geared towards treks to Annapurna, Everest Base Camp, Langtang, Poon Hill, etc. The center of the city is a labyrinth of businesses geared towards trekkers including agencies, trekking clothes shops, hostels, bars, restaurants, and more.

Travel Guide to Gay Mongolia – The Nomadic Boys

Gay Mongolia

When asked which is our favorite place in the world we’ve been to, Mongolia is one place we both agree is truly remarkable!

We visited gay Mongolia after our Trans Siberian railway adventure and ended up staying for a month. We didn’t expect to, but the landscapes in the Gobi Desert and the nomadic life along the Mongolian steppe just blew our minds. We loved it! Yes, it’s roughing it slightly as luxuries are scarce out here, but this is one cultural adventure you won’t forget in a hurry.

When it comes to gay travel, it’s fair to say that Mongolia is not the #1 place that comes to mind! This is a far cry from the Circuit parties of Barcelona or the wild scene of Fort Lauderdale. This country is more of a place to come to be awed by nature; a photographer’s paradise!

However, we still think it’s a place other gay travelers should experience. In this gay guide to Mongolia, we’ve sumarised our travels through the lands of Genghis Khan, which we hope inspires you to also pay this magnificent country a visit.

Rights in Gay Mongolia

LGBTQ+ rights in the country are, well, more advanced than you’d expect. When compared to the rest of the continent, Mongolia is one of the more advanced queer friendly nations in Asia. The government repealed its anti-gay law back in 1993, introduced the right to change legal gender in 2009, and also passed hate crime laws to protect its LGBTQ community in 2017.
