We're Gabi and Shanna, a lesbian travel couple based in Brooklyn, NY. Early on in our relationship we started to realize that we both loved traveling. Since Gabi is a photographer and Shanna is a videographer and video editor, we made 27 Travels as our creative outlet. It started as an Instagram account where we would document our trips and adventures. We also started to realize how little information exists for LGBTQ travelers and we wanted to help change that.
No, it's not our ages, or the number of countries we've visited, or how many trips we've taken. It's the date of our anniversary! The number 27 means a lot to us and it always reminds us that every trip we take we learn more and more about ourselves, our relationship, and the world we inhabit. That's also what we want to convey through 27 Travels. Traveling for us isn't just about ticking destinations and activities off a list, it's about growing, learning, and becoming more and more open minded by experiencing new and different cultures from all over the planet.
We hope to inspire others to explore more of the world around them, and to spread the message that travel is inclusive to everyone no matter your gender or who you love. Welcome to our journey, and we can't wait to continue sharing our adventures with you!
-Gabi + Shanna
