Group Travel, Mykonos - 1990 Style

STORY: 1989 to mid-1990s—My husband, Ron Oyer, had a travel business in the 1990s that catered to gay men, geographically mostly from California and New York, though also from many other states. Puerto Vallarta (Mexico), Mykonos (Greece), and Rio de Janeiro (Brazil), were the most popular destinations.

The groups featured handsome men looking for excitement and fun. BAMMER's co-founder, Mike Balaban, had befriended Ron in 1989 and eventually joined him on one of his New Year's group adventures to Rio de Janeiro and Angra dos Reis.



As you can see from the following pictures taken during several different trips to Mykonos in late summer, they found what they were looking for in that magical meeting place on the Aegean
