Two hot new resources for the gay traveller
Whether you’re a seasoned globetrotter or finally working up to your first real vacation in years, there is a great new set of tools to help you get the most from your trip.
First, unveiled this week at the International Gay and Lesbian Travel Association annual convention in Antwerp, Belgium, are a series of hot new Bump! travel guides. These apps for your BlackBerry and iPhone mobile devices are inspired by the hit international gay travel TV series Bump! Having a Bump! travel guide in your pocket is like having your very own local gay tour guide by your side.
“People on the road don’t want a hundred choices for what to do, where to go or when to party,” says Les Tomlin, executive producer of Bumper2Bumper Media, the company behind the guides. “They want the top 10 choices and that’s what we offer – a chic and crisply edited selection, based on destinations we know best.”
Choose among the 12 Bump! travel guides: Amsterdam, Barcelona, Berlin, Buenos Aires, Miami, Montreal, Mykonos, Paris, Puerto Vallarta, Rio and Sydney. Download the Antwerp Bump! Travel Guide free for a limited time. At only $2.99 for each of the others, it’s a small price for a world of access.
