Recently my girlfriend Sue Montgomery and I were off for a girls’ getaway to Palm Springs, the Southern-California city of luxurious, boutique hotels designed to pamper and emanate old world charm from those days of past Hollywood glamour and relaxation. Palm Springs was a city of scandal and partying of some of the most well-known stars and producers of the late 1950s, including the Rat Pack, Elvis Presley, and Marilyn Monroe. Sue and I loaded our suitcases into our car, and we were off to…

  • EDEN Pride Events Proudly Announces

    EDEN Pacific Northwest


    (San Francisco, Calif. – July 10, 2013) EDEN Pride Events, PQ Monthly, and The Seattle Lesbian is proud to announce a new partnership and women’s weekend: EDEN Pacific Northwest.


    EDEN Pacific Northwest is a new four-day women’s weekend filled with live female musical performances, nationally renowned female comedians and artists, and world-class female DJs in Seaside, Ore. on October 3 – 6, 2013.

    “Let’s rock the beach and enjoy being together for four wonderful days!” said Kandziora.

    EDEN Pride Events is known for EDEN Pride Weekend San Francisco, its four-day women’s weekend during San Francisco Pride now in its fourth year, and other women’s after-pride parties in Oakland, Sacramento and San Jose. EDEN Pride Events, based in the San Francisco Bay Area, also produced BLISS, a women’s getaway to Palm Springs, Calif. for two years.

    “EDEN puts on amazing events and their experience is invaluable,” said Gabriela Kandziora, partnership and business development of PQ Monthly.

    “I am thrilled to be a part of it,” added Sarah Toce, editor of The Seattle Lesbian. “Whenever there is a positive way for women to work together to create something truly special, I'm in!”

    Christine De La Rosa, founder and producer of EDEN Pride Events, based in the San Francisco Bay Area, agreed.

    “EDEN Pride Events, as well as myself were so honored to be approached by PQ Monthly to produce this event and are looking forward to a long partnership with both the Seattle Lesbian and PQ Monthly,” said Christine De La Rosa, founder and producer of EDEN Pride Events.

    Seaside, much loved by Oregonians, was selected as the site of the new women’s weekend by the EDEN Pacific Northwest team.

    Oregonians and Washingtonians, Melanie Davis, publisher of PQ Monthly; Kandziora and Toce, respectively, love the coastal town and surrounding area as well. They turned De La Rosa onto the town, who fell in love with the town too immediately.

    “Seaside is welcoming to the LGBT community and our straight allies,” said Toce.

    An hour and a half outside of Portland, Ore., Seaside is also easily accessible by Californians, Oregonians, Washingtonians, and Vancouverians and Victorians from Canada.

    Seaside offers a relaxing getaway, a variety of outdoor and other activities for various individuals’ interest from clamming, cycling, hiking, golf, motorcycling, and surfing to art, boardwalk amusement, microbrewery and wine tasting, shopping, spas and nightlife.

    “Where else can you ride a Harley one minute and play arcade games and eat salt water taffy the next?” asked Toce. “Add to that dance parties overlooking the water and bonfires in the sand and you've got the perfect destination location.”

    “EDEN Pacific Northwest is unlike any other women's weekend,” said Toce. “In our first year alone, we are offering bonfire gatherings on the beach, dance parties with celesbians we all know and love, clam digging, sightseeing excursions, and more. This event is completely outside of the box and all three partners are excited to share it with everyone.”

    The women hope that EDEN Pacific Northwest will become a destination for women from around the world to discover the beautiful Oregon coast.

    EDEN Pacific Northwest is currently planning entertainment and excursions. Learn more about EDEN Pacific Northwest, visit www.edenpnw.com or become our friend on Facebook www.facebook.com/edenpnw.

  • Larry Closs of trekworld.com just interviewed me - and he is one brilliant interviewer. I don't usually enjoy this kind of experience but he knew just which questions to ask to get me to open up about my years of solo travel, when I was in my forties... Have a look for yourself atThe Essentials of Solo Women's Travel.


  • There has been a lot of talk recently about Sarai Sierra's murder in Turkey and many of the comments are asking: Should Women Travel Solo? I've answered the question in this post at http://www.huffingtonpost.com/leyla-giray/traveling-solo_b_2672284.... - but I know not everyone agrees.
