Let’s Kick Off Pride Month With Something Huge!

*Please note that this is a sponsored post with redtag.ca – my disclosure can always be found by clicking here

We all know that I am a proud member of the 2SLGBTQIA+ community, and that I aim to create content that not only helps my community to be seen and accepted. In a world that can sometimes be a lot for those of you reading, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that there’s an extra layer for those of us who are watching laws be passed and our existence be banned.

I am not here to preach ideology, but I always want to share safe destinations, experiences and memories because my fellow community deserves the joy that travel brings into our lives just as much as everyone else.

With Pride month officially kicked off around the world, I thought it would be the best time to share a new partnership with redtag.ca – my choice of travel inspiration and where I turn to when searching for queer friendly destinations and experiences. Curious what that means? Click here to see more.

Over the last ten years since launching the blog, life has provided me with destinations and experiences that I have been lucky enough to share with you all. Julio & I have travelled from Vancouver to Halifax, Paris to Cuba, and everywhere in between.

Below are just a few of my travel memories around the world that have me thinking it’s time to start booking our next vacation. Why? Because with redtag.ca, travel is made easy and all the more fabulous.

Made by Canadians, for Canadians, redtag.ca is a brand that not only can help me search for queer friendly travel, but also gives back to our community. More on that below – you won’t want to miss it!

While I look forward to my 40th birthday in October, I told Julio that what I would love most of all this year for that milestone is a trip of a lifetime. Using redtag.ca I can see both the current last minute deals for the impulsive travel spirit in me, but also to plan ahead for what I have no doubt will be a trip to add to the memories I cherish most with Julio.

I’ve said it many times before, but there is nothing quite like seeing a city for the first time through his eyes, even if I’ve been there before. There is a magic in the world that can be experienced through travel. Immersing yourself in the sights, the nature, the food and the culture truly can feed your spirit and heart in ways that only travel can.

If you asked me to pick a few of the Pride monthly friendly destinations I would get on a flight and leave for right tomorrow, here are just a few of them that you can find for the best deal via redtag.ca.

Royalton Chic Punta Cana in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

Iberostar Paraiso Del Mar in Riviera Maya, Mexico

Secrets Papagayo Costa Rica in Liberia, Costa Rica (I’ve never been!)

But of course there are so many other 2SLGBTQIA+ destinations, resorts and experiences that you too can book right now for yourself and all the fabulous friends in your life by on my exclusive #DoTheclicking here.
