OUT ADVENTURES LAUNCHES TOURS SPECIFICALLY FOR LESBIANS
Out Adventures is launching a trio of lesbian tours for their 2020 season. These are the first tours the company has offered specifically for women, and were created to fill a gap in the offerings for lesbian travelers. Croatia, Peru and Iceland are the first trips, with more destinations to come in 2021. Before launching their lesbian tours, Out Adventures worked with a lesbian travel researcher and lesbian travel experts. Beyond the the traditional travel experiences, such as staying at fabulous hotels and visiting amazing destinations, they focus on additional opportunities to support local women-owned and operated businesses, they have female guides and they meet local lesbians in the destinations whenever possible.
I’m writing my travel diary aboard a train named the Belmond Andean Explorer, trying to find the right word that describes the moving landscape. “Profound” seems to convey most of my impressions. The word translates altogether the distance, the formidable perspective and the intensity of my vision. It says how deeply the landscape penetrates my mind. Unexpectedly, I find myself a little wiser while contemplating, as if I had been given some fundamental knowledge about the nature of Peru.
