5 Things We Love About Gay Friendly Manchester

Hike Everest, Kilimanjaro and the Inca Trail with these Gay Tours
There are two kinds of vacations that attract two kinds of people. First, there’s the the “lay on the beach and tan while sipping a cocktail” vacationer. Then there’s the active “grab a backpack and climb a mountain” type of traveler. Relaxing vacations are nice, but the great thing about an active adventure is that it’s good for the mind, body and soul.
