New to my channel? Hi, I’m Josh Rimer – a gay travel vlogger/YouTuber, and TV host/producer! I visit a new gay-friendly destination every 2 weeks with my boyfriend Heath and we bring you along with us on our trips to help you figure out where you might like to go too!

Every Tuesday I upload a “Travel Tuesday” video where I show you everything we experienced during a day of our visit including the hotel, restaurants, and attractions. See the previous ones at

Every Thursday I upload a “Hotel Hangout” video from our hotel room where I tell you a story, collaborate with an LGBTQ local, or play a game with my boyfriend. See those at

I also have a 3 minute video called “The Travel Tidbit” which airs every day on OUTtv during (or in between) their regular programming. That TV channel reaches 1.2 million Canadians so if you live in Canada too you might have seen our travels during shows like “RuPaul’s Drag Race” when my video takes over an entire commercial break! They also upload those on their YouTube channel at

Everything in this video was shot on my iPhone X! I’m a #TeamTelus Advocate so they’ve got me covered with great gear and plans to document my travels and stay connected when I’m on the go!

  1. Hey Josh, today your postcard from Jasper came in the post.
    Thank you ever so much for the beautiful card and your very satisfying handwriting!
    Not only did you have me wanting to go to Jasper…I now need to visit Edmonton, too!!
    Let's see what part of Canada you make me travel-hungry for next….
    Thank you for this awesome video, as always!!

  2. Geez man you poor people in that cold! It is beautiful here in dallas with a nice 70 degree temp. The shopping neighborhood looked amazing and that hotel was boss. Was it expensive?

  3. One of my best friends lives in Edmonton! I'd love to get over there…looks great even in the cold. Probably wouldn't be shopping for budgie smugglers though…haha…

  4. โ˜บ๏ธ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ another informative vlog yay!! Editing always on point.. Food looked so amazing #FoodIsLife lol

    Plus I want to do a Segway tour so bad ๐Ÿ˜ฉ it looks like so much fun and great for lazy ppl like me lmfaoooo -Millie
    Thanks for sharing

  5. Definitely looks like soup and toasted sandwich comfort food weather. Canada's had a long old winter this year. It looked pretty quiet, is it always like that or were the locals still in hibernation?

  6. Great travel clip. I loved my Segway ride in Perth, it was very warm though. I wondered if you notices the Army and Navy building on White Av. That is where I had my first job!

  7. Everything about this trip was so appealing. Even the cold weather seemed inviting, if dressed properly. It must have been great using the segways. It would make touring around less tiresome for your legs. All the restaurants looked like places to get awesome foods rather then just the norm. Great video guys.
