Today’s Podcast Takeaways:
To keep today’s notes organized, we’ve broken them down by guest…
Carl Hiehn – Digital Marketing Specialist
Carl has a whirlwind of travel booked this summer. Feel free to join him on any of the following gay tours: Budapest & Slovenia: Castles, Caves & Culinary Escapades, Croatia: Gay Dalmatia Cruise, Portugal: Azores Island Adventure and Portugal: Lisbon & Porto Gourmet Foray.
The Spanish cheeses he mentioned in today’s episode were queso de manchengo, queso de cabra and monte enebro.
Lino DiNallo – Writer
Lino is taking a gorgeous road trip from Vancouver down to sunny San Francisco. The unique California hotel Lino mentioned is called the Madonna Inn. Check it out!
Robert Sharp – Owner
While Rob has a (predictably) busy schedule this summer, the tour he’s most excited about is our Kenya: Safaris & Savannahs gay tour. If you’re looking for a last-minute escape, we have one shared spot left on the tour.
If you’re planning your own Kenyan safari, be sure to take Rob’s advice and book a lodge at Satao Elerai Camp.
Kevin Robitaille – Sales Manager
Ever wonder what a travel agent’s personal summer vacation looks like? Listen to Kevin’s extravagant Italy & Israel itinerary on the pod! We won’t repeat the lengthy affair here – we have a word-count, after all – but it really is quite something.
If you’re planning an Israel trip yourself, be sure to coordinate it with Tel Aviv Pride. It’s one of the world’s best LGBT celebrations.
For those looking to live their Call Me By Your Name fantasy, peaches are at their juiciest in Italy between late July and early September. *wink*
Finally, Matera is the gorgeous region Kevin made special note of. It was a major filming location for the blockbuster hit Wonder Woman.
Gilles Bourque – Sales & Marketing Coordinator
When Gilles isn’t serving peanuts aboard Air Canada this summer, he’ll be kicking back in Toronto. Catch him suntanning in his birthday suit at Toronto Island’s gay beach (near Hanlan’s Point). Otherwise he’ll be people watching at Trinity Bellwoods Park.
Peter Graham – Podcast Host
Peter’s gay foray will be a weekend at historic gay hot spot, Provincetown. Here’s a few of his top P-Town tips:
- Check out the weekly Tea Dances at Boat Slip Resort & Beach;
- Swing by Miss Conception‘s show at The Art House;
- Provincetown has a number of themed weeks you can coordinate around including: Bear Week, Carnival Week, Family Week, Lesbian Week and American Independence Week (which is a more circuit-y week);
- Finally, P-Town’s best accommodation is Sea Glass Inn & Spa, a refinished 1950s motel slinging freshly baked cookies from dawn ’til dusk. Book early!
That’s all… for now!
