Today’s Podcast Takeaways:

Today’s episode was a beautiful sendoff to a fantastic year of travel. Unfortunately on February 8th when the finale was recorded, our bright-eyed optimism would soon be met with the pandemic-that-shall-not-be-named.

So much has changed since recording, including the rescheduling of many mentioned tours including Robert’s Norway: Gay Mystery Expedition and Scott’s Spain: Gay Madrid & The Camino de Santiago hike. For an up-to-date list of cancellations, please visit our covid-19 FAQ page.

Our gay tours mentioned in the episode

While the specific hosts of the tours mentioned in today’s finale have largely been shaken up, these are the tours we chat about:

Nepal: Kathmandu & Everest Base Camp

Norway: Gay Mystery Expedition

Kenya: Safaris & Savannahs

Peru: The Inca Trail & Machu Picchu

Spain: Gay Madrid & The Camino de Santiago

Japan: Kyoto to Tokyo

South Africa & Victoria Falls in Style

Please Note: We don’t have any scheduled departures to Antarctica in the near future. However, as Kevin gleefully reminisced, the tour was a massive success and we’ll definitely be going back in the next few years. Keep an eye on our site for details.

Businesses mentioned in the episode

Quark Expeditions is the most trustworthy cruise operator in the polar circles. They are our official tour partner for Antarctica.

Season 4: Coming soon…

In today’s Finale Robert mentions we’ll be kick starting Season 4 in June, 2020. Unfortunately due to covid-19 we aren’t so sure anymore and the premiere will likely be pushed back to end-of-summer/early-fall. We’ll announce the premiere date as soon as we have a better grasp on the situation. Until then, thanks for listening to our third season and Never Lose Your Sense of Adventure!
