Best Tips for an LGBT Road Trip

Going on a road trip is one of the most adventurous things in the world, especially if you’re doing it with your close friends. Still, getting in a car and hitting the road is simply impossible to do unless you plan everything first. Investing your time and energy into details such as your destination, accommodation, food, budget, and activities might take a while, but this is ultimately going to take your road trip from average to amazing. If you too are planning a road trip adventure as well, here are a few gay-friendly road trip tips that might end up going a really long way.

Choose your destination

This is probably the most important decision you’re going to make during this entire process, but there’s a problem when you’re choosing a destination for an LGBT road trip – not all destinations are as LGBT-friendly as you may expect. Even though we’re living in the 21st century and consider people to act friendly towards tourists, you’d be surprised to hear about the problems LGBT tourists are facing when they’re on vacation.

Therefore, picking a destination is something you need to do very carefully. Take your time, look into some of the most LGBT-friendly places in the world, and pick a spot where you’ll feel welcomed, safe, and good. Also, be sure to talk to your travel companions and hear them out – they might recommend a destination you didn’t think of or vice versa, so take their wishes into consideration too.

Pick your companions

Speaking of your travel companions, this is another issue you need to address carefully. While most people think that who you’re traveling with isn’t as important as where you’re going, that’s actually not the case. Just imagine being stuck in a car with three or four people you hate for a week or two – yes, not going in the first place is much better than that!

Your companions should be the people you know for a while and who you’re comfortable around. These people will share every waking moment of your time with you, so you need to feel relaxed enough to behave naturally instead of having to pretend you’re someone else. It’s not about your sex or sexuality – after all, your companions don’t necessarily have to belong to the LGBT community at all – but about spending time with someone you generally love spending time with.

Fix your car

Just because you’re going on a road trip doesn’t mean you should be left stranded in the middle of the road. Still, this definitely happens more often than you can imagine, and it will certainly happen to you as well unless you’re traveling in a car that’s properly maintained and ready for such a journey. Doing these things isn’t easy, but it’s just something you have to do if you want to be able to get home from your road trip.

Maintaining your car regularly means checking the engine, inspecting the fluids, changing the oil, and replacing the tyres. The latter might easily be the most important thing of them all, so looking into those reliable 4wd tyres could end up saving your life. Having the wrong tyres might ruin your trip quite easily, so replacing them before hitting the road is definitely a great idea. 

Pack your essentials

One of the benefits of traveling by car is being able to bring as much luggage with you as you want. Unlike airplanes, cars give you an option to pack literally all your essentials, so make sure you’ve packed everything you’re going to need on your road trip. This might not be easy, but dedicating some time to this issue is way better than realizing you don’t have some of your stuff while you’re in the middle of nowhere.

Packing for your perfect LGBT summer road trip means packing a number of crucial items – from your documents and your clothes to your formal wear and your skin products. In the end, you need to pack your less formal clothes as well – after all, finding a lover is just the thing all single young people are hoping for on their road trip.

Going on a road trip is always fun and exciting, but if you’re going on an LGBT road trip this summer, you can be sure you’re going to have the time of your life! Being surrounded by others who are just as fun and wild and free as yourself will make this road trip an occasion you’re going to remember forever.

How to Plan a Perfect Summer Adventure

Planning a trip is one of those things that we all enjoy, but it can be nerve-wracking, especially if you’re planning a trip with someone and you cannot come to an agreement. To make matters worse, 2020 has got us by the neck, so we cannot really go for just any type of trip. Regardless, this is the time to start thinking about summer, for two reasons. One – it will be useful to know where you will spend your summer days and two – it seems that more than half the year has passed without us doing anything worth remembering. So, it’s our job to make the most out of this summer. In order to have the best trip, you don’t have to go big or break the bank. There are so many different options that you can go with, so take a look at a couple of our ideas:

Travel locally

They say that the grass is always greener on the other side, which is very visible in the industry of travel. All of us, you and I included, love to go someplace abroad, discovering a new LGBT-friendly destination, forgetting that we have so many beautiful places in our own country. So this summer might be the one for you to travel locally and explore amazing and not so distant places. Being a tourist in your own country might just be what you need, so use this opportunity to do it in 2020, because – if not now, then when?

Embrace nature

Another way to play this summer trip game is to not spend it on a beach, but rather in nature. Summer is not for sea only; you can also have a memorable and relaxing time generally in nature. Try to find different camps, cottages, mountains or even national parks where you will spend a couple of days during the summer. Yes, this type of holiday might be completely different than the summer holidays you’re used to, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try it out. Make sure to have high-quality equipment, which means that you can always go with Tekto Gear, bring some warm clothes and your camera because you will need it. Spending your summer in nature is an entirely different experience that you should try out.

Why not a road trip?

Then again, why not organize a good road trip? Road trips are always very popular, but this year it seems that they will be more popular than ever. If you want to, you can even travel to a different country, rent a car, or simply take your car and just drive. You need to worry about several things when it comes to a road trip, so it would be very good if you planned everything in advance – the stops, the number of days you will be spending there, check the weather. Make sure to know what to pack, as packing for a trip is never an easy endeavor.

No matter where you go – choose authentic

If 2020 taught us something, it’s that we can never be sure what life has in store for us. Because of that particular fact, it is our job to enjoy our trips as much as possible and try to understand life on Earth as much as we can. That is precisely why authentic trips will be huge this, and in the years to come. See what other cultures are doing, try to understand how different people live by emerging into their world. You do not have to go to Asia or Africa to do this – there are people living a very different life in your vicinity. Visit cottages and live in the woods for seven days. Try to see what life on a farm feels like for a week. All of these things will not only bring you relaxation and distance you from your daily hustle and bustle, but they will also provide you with a new experience that you will definitely remember in years to come.

2020 might not have been the best year so far, and that’s why we need to redeem it with a powerful summer. Your summer trip must be unique and unforgettable – that should be your goal. 

10 Summer Activities for Gay Couples

It is always difficult to find new activities that will not bore you immediately. Because of that, it is always a good idea to think of new things that you will do with your partner, as you really do not want to end up in a rut and live the same day over and over again. Some interesting and new activities require traveling, others not, but we present you 10 summer activities that you can do with your boyfriend, and that both of you will like:

1. Surfing’s always fun

One of the most original things that you can do with your partner is surfing. This is not an activity that is popular in every country in the world but it is definitely an activity that plenty of people would like to try out. Even if they are clumsy, they love seeing other guys getting their surf equipment on and showing what they have. So, get your tickets, fly somewhere where surfing’s always cool such as Australia, and hit the beach!

2. Why not try hunting?

Hunting is somewhat a taboo topic right now because some people oppose it on moral or other grounds. However, you can easily live out a fantasy of being a hunter even without harming any animals. If that sounds appealing, then you can always check out TheBowGuy, pick the equipment that you need and hit the road. Of course, just put on your equipment and get in tune with your inner hunter by shooting archery targets.

3. Skydiving for the brave

5% of people all around the world are scared of heights, which means that this 5% of people will definitely not take this suggestion into consideration. However, if you are among the other 95%, then skydiving should be one of the top things to try out. This is not something that you will be trying out more than once, so it would be really magical if you did this with your partner for the first time.

4. Bungee jumping’s also an option

Even though skydiving is booked for the brave, if you’re not scared of heights but still do not want to jump out of a plane, you can try bungee jumping with your partner. If you choose a great destination (one that is not only popular for bungee jumping, but rather for both bungee jumping and its beauty), why not try it out? This is also an activity that can be paired with a trip as there are amazing bungee jumping destinations all over the world. Imagine jumping from the Navajo Bridge in Arizona!

5. Time travel

We still haven’t invented time travel (or we have but we don’t know about it, perhaps Keanu Reeves knows?) but time traveling is one of the options that sound very interesting. Even though it is physically impossible to time travel, you can always opt to go to a cafe or a place that is rather retro. For the full experience, dress appropriately and behave in the manner people behaved back then. If you want to travel physically but also in time, take a look at the following tip.

6. San Francisco realness

Traveling to San Francisco perhaps equals time travel, but in gay language. This city has been the cradle of gay culture as we know it today, and being such, it is a place where every single gay bar is important for some reason. Opting to go on a gay and cultural trip and actually seeing how the LGBTQ rights came to be is an amazing and a very adventurous idea.

7. Opt for gay dance parties

There is nothing more adventurous than sitting in your car or buying a plane ticket and heading to some of the best gay parties in the world. Of course, you will be able to find these on every single continent, you just need to do a bit of research. So, find the one that is closest to you, and go there to party the whole night away with your loved one.

8. Organize a picnic

If nothing else, we can find beautiful landscapes anywhere we turn. Just take a look outside of the city and you will find dozens of pretty villages, forests, river banks and other places where you can host the most romantic picnic ever. See the sunset and then start your car and head home. It is a day well-spent in nature, so it’s not only romantic, it’s healthy as well!

9. Catch an open-air cinema

If you want to be old-school, put on your roller skates (just to be in the ‘80s fashion) and find an open-air cinema where you can go to. If you can find a drive-in cinema, even better. These are not only good because you get to watch a movie in a new and unusual way under the stars, but it’s also great because it can be rather private as there’s only to be two of you in the car.

10. Treasure hunt

This might not be the most “adventurous” activity of them all, but it’s one that is going to boggle your mind and infuse it with mystery! Treasure hunts and similar room escape games (there are some that are organized in open space) are not only interesting, but can also serve as great team-building activities. You can take another couple or your best friends and make a team! The choice is yours.

There are so many different activities that you can opt for only if you open your mind just a bit. The final piece of advice – do something that you will never do again! Try something for the first time with your partner, and make your relationship even stronger!

5 Honeymoon Packing Mistakes no LGBT Couple Should Make

Packing is always a daunting process. Even though it is regarded as fun as you are packing for a nice trip that you probably cannot wait for, there is that thing about packing that makes us just a bit nervous. This is especially important if we tend to forget things at home or make packing mistakes that we realize once we arrive at a certain destination. When it comes to honeymoon packing, though, we have to bring our best game. This trip is probably one of the most important trips that we will ever make, so in order not to forget anything and make the most out of this trip, you need to have a certain checklist that you will make several days (or even weeks) before your trip. Take a look at the five biggest honeymoon (packing) mistakes that LGBT couples make, so that you don’t:

Finding a bad destination

This might not have anything to do with packing whatsoever, but it is definitely one of the biggest LGBT honeymoon mistakes there are. LGBT couples can travel most of the world, yes, but they can certainly find themselves in a country that is not entirely LGBT-friendly. For example, if you want to celebrate your LGBT honeymoon and you want to do it with style, make sure to stay away from countries such as Russia (which banned Pride Parade for the next 100 years and where violence towards homosexuals is not frowned upon), or certain African countries such as Nigeria, Senegal, Uganda or Ghana. You can travel there if you want to, of course, but you will have to go back in the closet for the duration of your honeymoon, which might not be exactly what you want out of this trip. This is why you should always go for safe options, such as Sydney, for example, which is a great LGBT honeymoon destination, Europe or New York City.

Not packing all the queer essentials

However, if you opt for a good destination, then you might want to pack all the queerest things that you want. Since you are married, you will probably want to leave your latex pants at home (unless that is what you and your spouse really want). But, one of the most common essentials for queer people that is slowly and slowly becoming a bigger part of their routine is the makeup. This, however, does not only include the foundation or the concealer that many use, but mascara, eye shadow, eyeliner, or any other products that many LGBT people use nowadays. For each of these, you probably have your favorite brand, and it might be a bit difficult or perhaps even expensive to buy at your new location. Opting to buy mascara online or finding an eyeliner that is very similar to the one that you use and having it delivered to your hotel is a great ideal. This is how you will save time on going shopping and you will get everything that you need. And we all know how good-looking we want to be on our honeymoon.

Forgetting the documents

This is not only important for the LGBT honeymoons, but for all of them – and it is so important that we simply have to include it in this list. You cannot forget important documents such as the passports, the IDs, the accommodation confirmation and the plane tickets. These are the documents that you should prepare beforehand – put them on your desk or your table just to make sure you do not forget them. Also, do not forget to bring your money and your card.

Not planning the activities

Even though it is your honeymoon and you will probably be doing whatever you want to do, you should have at least a plan of what you want to visit and see. The destination that you choose for your honeymoon will probably be decided for a reason, and that reason is most commonly the things that the newlywed couple wants to see there. If you want to go to a popular touristic destination such as Paris, for example, or any other major city in Europe, and you want to visit some of its most iconic landmarks and museums, you will probably have to book your tickets in advance (such as for Anne Frank’s House in Amsterdam, for instance). Do not make this mistake and plan everything in advance. It is better to be safe than sorry. This is also important so as not to forget an important piece of equipment that you might need for your destination there. 

5. Leaving the day after the wedding

Contrary to popular belief, it is not the best idea to leave for your honeymoon the day of your wedding or the day after. You will need at least several days to relax after the big celebration, and secondly – why the rush? Take your time, see how the wedding went, have those memories and experiences settle down just a bit, and then opt to travel with your spouse. This is how you will manage to enjoy both of these events – as both are equally important. Also, this might result in forgetting something very crucial.

Your honeymoon is sacred and you need to plan it very carefully if you want to experience it in the best possible way. Make a checklist and also think about the mistakes other couples made – this is how you will ensure the perfect packing. Have a great one!

How to Pack for a European Fall City Break

Touring through European cities means seeing many exciting places, learning a lot of history, swimming, and of course, taking a lot of pictures. If this is your first time traveling there, here is a helpful guide of the essential things you will need.

Shoes

First, let’s talk about shoes since they take up so much space. You have probably made different outfits in your head and can’t wait to wear them, but if they include more than two pairs of shoes, forget about it. All you need are versatile shoes like, white sneakers that will go with any outfit and occasion, or a trendy pair of loafers, and some stylish sandals or slides, which are a better option. If you absolutely have to pack another pair, make sure those are comfortable sports sneakers you can travel in, and then wear them for walking or when you go sightseeing.

Clothes

Regardless of the type of vacation you are having, make sure you pack some extra shirts, in case you get wet or dirty. Pieces that can be both casual and formal are men’s polo shirts, which are a classic you can’t go wrong with. Wear it with shorts, pants, or jeans, and it will look stylish, plus they are very comfortable. Pack some basic monochrome t-shirts, a long-sleeved shirt for a night out, and for a crazy night out, take out your favorite print or trendy t-shirt which you didn’t have the chance to wear.

Pack two pairs of jeans, one pair of pants, and just in case, at least one shorts, because it can get hot. Don’t forget sweaters and a light fall jacket. Denim or leather are perfect because they will keep you warm, they go with everything, and they are super trendy. And, of course, don’t forget your favorite bathing suit because you never know where you will have a chance for a quick dip at least. 

Cosmetics

Keeping your skin protected when traveling is pretty hard, which is why you need to have at least some basic skincare products in your cosmetics bag. A face wash, a moisturizer, some wet wipes, sunblock, a deodorant, razors, and at least a concealer will be enough, although you can pack some other go-to products. Make sure to pack travel sizes, and for the purpose of traveling light, you can get all your bath essentials once you get there. And since your cosmetics bag will probably hold these items, condoms, band-aids, and a basic meds kit should be there as well. 

Accessories

The first and most important thing is a bag or a backpack, whichever you like better. It’s convenient because you can carry it wherever you go, pack all your personal belongings, and even pack something you bought there. 

A wristwatch is the main jewelry piece you need, but if you are a fan of bracelets or necklaces, do pack them, just don’t wear them while you get through airport control. A cool cap can complete your style, so if you like wearing them, pick your favorite and pack it. Sunglasses and a belt should also be on your list. 

Fun and games

In the fun and games section, we will include all the technology since that’s where a lot of the fun is. Your phone, charger, a speaker, headphones, power bank, and a camera are some of the essentials. You can take photos, record, listen to music, talk to people, and get maps and directions when you need it. If you know you will be attending a crazy party, do pack something fun like a wig, glitter, funny clothes, or even just socks or underwear that is at least silly. If your type of fun is a bit calmer atmosphere, a kindle or a book are a good choice. 

5 Tips For Working Out on a Vacation

Are you one of those people who go all out on their vacations? Do you sleep less, so you could do more sightseeing, partying, and drinking during the day (and night), or just enjoy more time in the sun? Do you skip your workouts as well? Well, that’s what vacations are for. However, it’s difficult to fit your gym time in your schedule when you’re back to your daily routine after the vacation. We fall in love with that casual lifestyle when we’re not doing anything at all, and then we struggle with deciding to go back to the gym later on. Nevertheless, here are a few tips you can implement when you’re on a vacation to stay close to your routine and to reap all the benefits of working out anywhere and anytime.

Don’t ride buses, ride bicycles

Participating in sightseeing tours is a big part of everyone’s vacation, but is there anything better than carefree bus rides? Yes, there is! How about renting a bike and experiencing all the beautiful landscapes firsthand, not through a bus window? You can enjoy fresh air, sweat some calories out and work on that booty. If you prefer spending time with a company, you can always sign up for a cycling tour and meet a lot of like-minded people. You will save some money, improve your navigation skills, build muscle and improve flexibility. And the best thing is, you won’t emit any carbon into the atmosphere!

Don’t forget the essentials

Who in this world thinks about packing some of their workout equipment when going on a vacation? I mean, you already need a lot of space for all your clothes and beauty products. However, you should consider fitting in at least some of the essentials. You can definitely squeeze in training tops and bottoms, running shoes, two pairs of socks, resistance bands, and a jumping rope. And one more thing. You never know what kind of food you’ll stumble upon on your vacation. To make sure you never slack on your diet, bring a pack of your WPI (whey protein isolate) and make those days stress-free.

Pick your accommodation with more attention

A lot of hotels have their own gyms you can use every day. Even if your hotel doesn’t have one, you can still keep up with your workout routine. Scan the area to see if there are some other workout facilities you could use. Take a swim in the pool early in the morning, or go jogging. If there are a lot of stairs in the neighborhood, even better! Your legs and booty will be grateful even if it’s just a 10-minute workout plan.

Sleep time is important

This is the fact that can never be emphasized enough. Everyone always talks about getting a good portion of sleep, but why is it so important? Have you ever heard of the growth hormone? It’s a small protein which helps the muscles you worked on during the day grow. Sleep is important because this hormone is normally produced at higher levels during the night than during the day. Also, you don’t need those dark circles forming under your eyes, so you better get some good amount of sleep. You need to feel rested to pull off that early morning workout session.

Eat a lot, but eat healthily 

Working out, walking around and biking will surely get you tired and hungry. You’ll have to replenish what you burn as it will probably be more than the amount you usually burn when you’re not on a vacation. It’s really important to have proper meals, don’t skip any meals throughout the day, and eat a lot of greens. If you have to skip a meal for some reason, consider buying a veggie smoothie. It’s refreshing, healthy, and you won’t be hungry.

Working out on a vacation doesn’t have to mean spending hours in the gym. Opt for shorter, high-intensity sessions early in the morning, which will get you ready for the whole day. You can replace the session in the gym with rope jumping, biking, hiking, any sort of physical activity. Anything is good as long as you’re moving your body.

How to Plan a Perfect LGBT Honeymoon

No matter if you’re a sucker for weddings or not, we can all agree that the honeymoon is the best part of any wedding. This is the time to make the best memories, relax and start your marriage on the right foot. However, without ample planning, your trip can end up being a total bust. So, here are a few practical tips on how to plan a perfect LGBT honeymoon.

Plan well

All the best honeymoons are planned while both parties are on the same page. So, make sure to talk it over before you start contacting travel agents! Do you want to unwind and relax or have a wild adventure that will fill you with adrenaline? Do you prefer bright lights of the city or the quiet of the beach and nature? You must know what you want as a couple and what you prefer as travelers. This will allow you to plan the best honeymoon to mark the beginning of your life together.

Research your destination

Here’s the harsh truth, it’s still illegal to be LGBT in over 80 countries and in 13 you can be sentenced to death for being gay. However, traveling as a gay person can be risky no matter where you go. This is not scaremongering, but even ultra-liberal destinations like NYC, London and Amsterdam have instances of anti-LGBT violence. Now, you can’t miss your honeymoon because you’re scared! But, what you can do is pick a more gay-friendly destination—we just want you to be safe, alright!

Choose LGBT-friendly accommodation

Not every destination has obviously gay resorts and hotels, so make sure to do your research. When in doubt, check with Ebab or go through Fodor’s and Frommer’s selections. You’ll get to find all sorts of LGBT sections, area-specific tips and no-nos for gay romance.

Pack well

If you’re going to a tropical island or anywhere where you’re planning to spend the majority of your time at the beach, you don’t need much. However, you still want to be stylish and even maybe show off your love. For instance, lesbian couples can check out one piece swimwear online and grab matching swimwear. You’ll look so fabulous together (you might look like walking lesbian stereotypes, but who cares!). However, if you’re planning to have fancy dinners in the city, you’ll need something more formal, preferably with sleeves. Additionally, don’t forget to pack all your sex toys and gear. You might get a chance to renew your collection at your destination, but who knows whether they sell anything. You just can’t risk it.

Organize something special

Just because you tied the knot, that doesn’t mean you can leave romance and grand gestures behind you! Take time to surprise your spouse with something very exciting and show just how much you love them. Use your knowledge of their preferences to come up with something amazing that will surely make them happy. If you have a hopeless romantic for a husband, plan a private evening with bubbly, roses and a lot of cuddling. On the other hand, if your wife loves adventure, a field trip to nature will make her feel over the moon.  

Don’t forget why you’re doing this

The most important thing about honeymoons is the feeling of doing something together, as a couple. So, no matter how much you hate organizing stuff, make sure to stay engaged and give your feedback. This planning time will not only allow you to grow as a couple but also bring you closer together. If you plan it together, it will make your honeymoon even more perfect. So, don’t forget why you’re doing this—to celebrate your beautiful love and your victory over haters!

Sure, planning a perfect honeymoon is not something you can do in one afternoon, but if you stay focused and do your homework, you’ll end up in real LGBT heaven!

How to Pack For a Perfect Summer LGBT Road Trip

It’s summer which means that it’s time for that LGBT road trip of the year, and we cannot be more excited than that. You have probably decided on your destination, but depending on the destination that you chose, you will have to pack accordingly. Some people like to go to cold places during the summer months, such as Scandinavian countries for example, and if this is the case, make sure to pack both something warm and something for when it’s hot. However, we will focus on those who will go someplace hot where they will show plenty of skin. What to pack and what to have always in mind?

The essentials

The first things that you need to put in your bag are the essentials that you cannot travel without. These include your passport, your ID, your medical insurance, your plane tickets and the booking of your accommodation. Have these in one place and don’t forget them as you cannot buy new ones there. This is particularly important for your passport and your medical insurance. As far as the tickets and the booking confirmation are concerned, it’s always good to have them with you at all times, unless you want to run around trying to find a place to print them out. Also, have a backup copy on your phone.

Clothes

As far as clothes are concerned, make sure to have something for every single occasion. This means that you want something long-sleeved in case it gets chilly, something formal, something sporty, something sexy. It’s summer and you probably don’t need a lot of clothes, but bringing something of everything will definitely make your stay there more interesting. Also, you can bring some women’s boots if you want to have a crazy night out in drag or if that’s your cup of tea. However, make sure that the things you wear are comfortable, as comfort comes before anything else.

Something formal

Since it’s your summer holiday, there will be a time when you will go out together on a formal dinner at a good restaurant, and this is why you need to pack something that’s a bit more formal as going there in flip flops and shorts just won’t do. Now, you don’t have to pack your whole suit, but make sure that you have one pair of good pants and a shirt that accentuates all of your best features. As far as shoes are concerned, you can choose sneakers as these go well with suits and also because athleisure.

Vanity table items

Now, what about the small things that you think take no space but when you double check you see that they are taking way more than they are supposed to? We are talking about shampoos, skin care products, perfumes. First, check if there are shampoos in the hotel or apartment you will be staying at, and if yes, there is no need to bring your own. You will need some space for the sunscreen and other things that are important for the summer. Of course, don’t forget your signature perfume as you will need it every night. You don’t have to bring more than one – it’s summer and more often than not you will not be needing it. 

For sexy time

And finally, an LGBT trip is nothing without the possibility of getting between someone’s sheets, of course, if you’re single and going without a partner. If this is your case, do not forget to pack your favorite pair of underwear as you will never know when you will be needing them. Apart from that, bring condoms and lube – you might find these there, but it’s always better to bring some with you. Also, have at least one condom always with you in your wallet. 

 

Well guys, hopefully, you will have the time of your life. LGBT trips are amazing, and there are things that you will remember from every single one of them. This is why you should make this summer another summer to remember!

Gay Summer Vacation Outfits and Style Tips

We love summer for so many reasons, and one of them is because we get to wear amazing summer clothes! This is even more exciting when we’re planning what to pack and bring with us when we go to our long-awaited summer vacation! No more sweaters, caps and winter shoes for a while, it’s time for something lighter and more comfortable! Check out this cool and stylish list about what’s hot this year regarding gaycation fashion! 

Classic jean jacket

You can find denim in most closets! Yet, when we’re talking about a jean jacket, not everyone can pull off this ever-classy piece of clothing in the same way, and many people don’t combine it in such a way to get the most out of the outfit. Maybe your first instinct would be to pair it with regular blue jeans. This is acceptable. However, match it with a pair of black jeans instead if you want to be even more stylish.  

A classic jean jacket is perfect for breezy summer nights or as a chic layer to get that look which is both casual and stylish at the same time. 

A lightweight hoodie

Even if you see that the temperature is going to be ideal during your stay, you should still consider packing your favorite hoodie! You might need it during the morning hours when it’s a bit colder, or to offer you a little warmth on the beach when the wind gets too cool. If you feel cold during your promenade with your partner, you won’t enjoy it as much. However, bring your lightweight hoodie and feel completely carefree!

Nautical striped knit shirt

This is one of those items of clothing that look good on whoever wears them. If you want to be complimented on your perfect getup, know that this piece, which is a combination of navy and white, and is also known as a French sailor shirt, goes perfectly with blue or black jeans. 

Cotton short-sleeved shirt with buttons

How to Plan a Memorable Bachelor Party

Yes, we love wedding ceremonies and parties as we can dance the night away, drink whatever we want to and celebrate the love between two people. But, what do we love even more? Yes, a bachelor party. Not only is this party here as the first in the row (the wedding’s coming up), but it’s also a great way to spend your friend’s last single days together. However, different groups of people organize different bachelor parties. Some feature the blinding lights of Las Vegas, others feature a board game and bottles of beer. So, what kind of bachelor party are you going to attend or throw? Not sure? Take a look at this guide as we will give you some ideas on how to throw a perfect bachelor party regardless of sexual preferences.

Chug up

What’s a bachelor party without drinks? Not paying attention to drinks is simply out of the question, so make sure to make this your priority when you start organizing the bachelor party. You can play this in many different ways, and each one depends on the actual location of your bachelor party. If it’s going to be a club, then you will have nothing to worry about. However, most bachelor parties start at home or a weekend house and this is where you will need to get the booze. Make sure that you know who’s drinking what, or if you want to play it safe, you can always simply get gin or whiskey or make it a cocktail party.

Hit the road

Another way to organize this bachelor party is to organize a small road trip. This could be done somewhere very close to the city or town where you live, so it would practically be a small weekend getaway to some other town or city. Or, you can also go completely The Hangover and book tickets to some exotic destinations such as Hong Kong, Singapore or Australia. The latter is always a very interesting option as it caters for all the needs that you want – you can explore the bush, or you can have an amazing time on the coast. Be that as it may, make sure that you book everything in advance – plane tickets and accommodation, and see if the groom has days off for the trip!

Add events

Next up, what are you going to do during the bachelor party? It simply won’t do just to listen to music and drink, so it’s up to you and your friends to think of some very exciting activities. This is also the case if you opt for a trip someplace exotic, as you actually need to plan your activities in advance– you cannot just wander around not knowing what to do. If you happen to go to Australia, one of the options could be to visit a great strip club in Sydney – no matter if you’re straight or gay, you will most definitely have fun here. This will also be a complete success if the groom is straight. 

Lights, camera, action!

Finally, no matter what you choose and what you do, don’t forget to record everything! This will a night to remember, so make sure that you have plenty of battery left and space in order to record every single second of your amazing bachelor trip. You can use these photos and recordings afterwards to make an amazing vlog that you will share among yourselves – can we agree on how awesome a memory this is? Then again, perhaps you will be in The Hangover 4, so you need photos to remember what happened the previous night!

Organizing a bachelor party is always so much fun. In order to organize the best one yet, make sure that you make a checklist of all the things that need to be done, and go slowly over each. If you do this the right way, you will have the time of your life. After all, it’s not important where you are, but who you are with.
