My wife, Laura, and I are Brooklyn transplants living in London. The best part of London is the proximity and low cost of traveling elsewhere. I’m a grad student, so we can’t afford luxury travel, but we are also married and in our 30s, so we won’t be staying in hostels either (plus we saw that movie and got scared). We’ve received incredible travel recommendations from friends, and scoured Rick Steves and Lonely Planet. We’ve also received a lot of requests for advice. Thus, Kate and Laura the Explora are hear to consolidate what we know and offer it to other adventurers. We are always conscious of traveling as two gay woman who like to hold hands, plus we have anxiety ridden parents who ask us before every trip if it’s dangerous. Therefore, this blog is also about recommending places where we’ve felt safe and accepted. Happy travels to all, lesbiTRAVELan!!!!!

NOTE: All the photos are by myself or Laura. OR, if they are non-selfie pics of us, they are most definitely by the talented Ms. Lauren Perlstein, who somehow always manages to make us look good (I mean she’s a professional).
