A Gay Couple hiking Svínafellsjökull Glacier – After parking our car, we walked to the small wooden house of Arctic Adventures. After the check in and the try out of our “ice-shoes”, a small bus for approximately 10 people brought us and our tour guide Síf to the foot of the glacier tongue of Svínafellsjökull. Equipped with our camera, crampons and ice-picks the tour started heading towards the thousand of years old ice. The backstory of all the geological particularities was simply impressive!

Restaurant Cantinetta Wine & Pasta in Amsterdam West - This amazing place is very special to us. Let us tell you a short story about "our" favorite restaurant Cantinetta Wine & Pasta in Amsterdam West (very gay-friendly). During Karl's first time visiting Daan over the weekend three years ago, we went together to the, back then, recently opened restaurant Cantinetta Wine & Pasta in Amsterdam West. The food was (still is) amazing and with its "Berlin sense of style" it felt for Karl a bit like home. Talking to the owners, the lesbian couple Debb and Claudia, made this first

Restaurant “Soepboer” in Amsterdam Noord – If you got hungry and you are on the lookout for a nice place to lunch in Amsterdam Noord, take a 10-minutes walk to the cosy restaurant “Soepboer”. Taste the delicious, fresh and self-made soups and sandwiches in this tiny unremarkable restaurant, sitting on its beautiful garden terrace in the sun or in a cozy corner inside at Restaurant Soepboer Amsterdam Noord.

Looking for the highest point in Amsterdam? Best Amsterdam view A'DAM LOOKOUT - Next to the EYE, the A'dam Tower recently opened it's doors again after a long renovation. If you wanna have the best view over the city center, the Music Gebouw and the IJ river, you have to take the elevator with its spectacular light show all the way up to the LOOKOUT. Don't forget to make your memory picture, which you can download for free (or buy as printed version). Enjoy our small video (spoiler warning!).

A Zodiac Tour Glacier Lagoon Jökulsárlón – We visited both lagoon lakes and choose the bigger version for a Zodiac tour. Why choosing the Jökulsárlón Tour? You are able to see a lot more Icebergs, Seals, and more touring offers. This Lake flows into a short river, that flows into the ocean with smaller and bigger Icebergs. A huge bridge for cars and pedestrians connects both sides of the water.

The Restaurant GYS Voorstraat Utrecht is our tip for a city trip to Utrecht. Especially after a morning exploring the Dutch city. If you get hungry in the center, just walk around the famous Janskerk. In less than 5 minutes your next stop for a Lunch break is GYS. It is very easy to find, just at the corner of Amsterdamsestraatweg and Voorstraat in an old Dutch building, you will find one of the two GYS, the restaurant GYS Voorstraat Utrecht.
