Lesbian travel is becoming more popular than ever, and there are so many options to choose from. Here are a few tips to get you started on your quest. First, consider what you want from a lesbian getaway. Is it a luxury holiday or a cheap getaway? What are your priorities when traveling? Where should you stay?
If you want to meet lesbian travelers, make sure you visit cities with a thriving gay scene. Check Facebook to see which cities have active lesbian communities and RSVP if you find a few you’re interested in. Also, check the lesbian-friendly bars and parties in the city you’re visiting. Finally, do some research on the country you’re visiting before you go. Make sure you learn about the legal situation for queers and the country’s stance on same-sex relationships. If there have been any incidents of queer-related harassment or violence, do your research beforehand.
While most places cater to gay male travelers, there aren’t many resources available for lesbians. However, if you’re open to traveling as a lesbian, you can find travel tips from lesbian-friendly organizations and websites. Check out the IGLTA’s ‘plan your trip’ section to find the best lesbian-friendly businesses and destinations. Lesbians can also save money by house sitting or working for someone.
For a lesbian-friendly city, try out Barcelona. This capital city of Spain is home to the largest gay and lesbian community in the world. You’ll be able to enjoy the city’s picturesque canals and views of the Baltic Sea. And if you’re looking for a more laid-back location, check out the gaybourhoods in the Reeperbahn and St Georg. You’ll find plenty of places to be a lesbian in Barcelona.
If you’re planning a lesbian trip to New Zealand, you’ll want to check out the IGLTA’s website. It lists the top lesbian tour providers and has links to other travel agencies. Olivia, for example, began as a cruise travel organisation, but has evolved into a full-fledged travel agency offering a range of activities for women. You’ll want to know the local laws before embarking on any trip.
Another important consideration for your trip is safety. First, try to find out where you’ll be most comfortable. Make sure you visit a country where the same sex is accepted and celebrated. Also, don’t forget to check the travel laws and regulations. If you’re unsure of the laws regarding homosexuality and gender identity, the US Department of State can provide you with all the necessary information to ensure you’re safe.
