Modern Travel of Palm Springs is a new concept in community based travel and is part of well known Josh Friedman Luxury Travel. Josh and his husband John moved to Palm Springs in 2019.

For information on our events as we create them, please click here & for all destination posts either browse the categories on this page or scroll here.

My idea in starting modern travel of palm springs was to create a community of locals, their friends and out of towners who identify with the Palm Springs spirit: inclusive, fun, adventurous, accepting.  And who would on occasion want to travel together – say on a small group tour or on a snazzy cruise. And at other times, like one normally would, plan travel with partners, friends or solo.

At this stage in our lives in palm springs my husband John and I wanted to enjoy the camaraderie in travel that we’ve found so desirable living here in the desert – going out, enjoying ourselves, meeting LGBTQ people + cool allies from all over the country & the world, and learning about everybody’s life experiences. Who knew that at 60 we could meet all types of people we’ve never met before – it’s fantastic!

As a travel advisor and cruise line insider for almost all of my career (since 1981), I have traveled with John to exciting places across the globe:  italy & europe, australia, patagonia and buenos aires, africa, canada, mexico and around the mediterranean, the caribbean and the baltic.

I see the direction of this company coming from the input  of the people we meet and their friends. Please join us.
