A Gay Couple City Weekend The Hague - Big City Vibes of Den Haag. The Hague, Den Haag, Den Hague. The third biggest City of the Netherlands has many names and a very special and very different feeling compared to all the other Dutch cities the gay couple has visited so far. With an urban, metropolitan big city feeling, a weekend break to The Hague is unique, different and seems definite not enough to experience everything on one weekend in Netherland's Western part. Why? Read now more about our Gay Couple City Weekend The Hague and explore the city through

The review of our gay-friendly stay at Loft Westeinde Apartment City Center The Hague during our Dutch City Tour around the Netherlands. We can recommend the private Loft apartment at street Westeinde (not only) for a weekend stay in the third biggest city of the Netherlands. Well maintained, equipped and prepared for our visit with enough space for a (gay) couple or even two with cooking facilities, a small library and a roof top terrace the Loft Westeinde above a private art gallery let us feel immediately home. Arriving at Den Haag Centraal (The Hague Central Station), is was just

A Gay Couple traveling Road Trip North Iceland Part 7 – North Iceland is rough, wild, wilder than we thought. But its unique and remarkably beautiful part of Iceland with incredible landscape that made it all worth our road trip. Leaving Lake Mývatn in central Iceland behind, we headed to Dalvík for our second whale watching trip and further to Ólafsfjardar, a small town in between two huge mountain formations. For this part of our 21-days Road Trip Iceland, we stayed at Brimnes Bungalows far north of the island, a gay-friendly accommodation perfect for hunting Northern Lights. But West Iceland

A Gay Couple City Weekend Groningen - Karl & Daan's Dutch City Tour brought the gay couple to the "capital of the North", especially for a visit at the Groninger Museum. Groningen with its compact and walkable old town surrounded by Grachten is very well known for its famous Groninger Museum. Currently with the V&A exhibition "David Bowie is", the popular student life and a creative art scene. We visited the capital of the Dutch province Groningen on our tour around the Netherlands after our weekend in Eindhoven. Join us on and see the Dutch City Groningen through a couple

The Hestasport Cottages Varmahlíð North Iceland gay-friendly - or the perfect place to recharge your road trip North Iceland batteries. Our time along the North Icelandic coast was full of adventures from whale watching, glacier river rafting and horseback riding. With Hestasport Cottages we found a gay-friendly accommodation in North Iceland with a private natural hot spring in the center of the houses. Fully equipped wooden houses just on the hilltop in Varmahlíð with comfortable beds, spectacular view over Icelandic nature and the option to do Northern Lights Watching from out a hot spring. The cottages are part of Hestasport,

What would a trip to Iceland be without a ride on a real Icelandic horseback through unique nature? Right, not a complete 21-days road trip Iceland. To avoid this situation, we decided to participate a horse riding tour with Hestasport Icelandic Horseback Riding North Iceland. Icelandic horses are so lovely, nice and beautiful creatures and additional to that, very small. Perfect for Karl who felt very comfortable in company with same height horses of Hestasport stud farm.

Thinking of North Iceland and it's beautiful and impressive Glaciers, we automatically had to think about all the glacier rivers coming from the frozen giants streaming thousands of years old water into the ocean. A place to do a great rafting tour is Skagafjörð in North Iceland. Coming from the small North Icelandic town Varmahlíð, take the road 753 in a southern direction and you will find the home of Viking Rafting, a team of very experienced canoeists and rafters. It was a foggy and rainy day. But become a day full of Icelandic adventures in beautiful rough nature on

A Gay Couple City Weekend Eindhoven or how the history of light reinvents the Modern Dutch Design Capital in the South of the Netherlands. Eindhoven, the 5th largest Dutch City in province of North Brabant is a hiddeen historic treasure sadly often underestimated, even by its citizens. But Eindhoven is the European city of light, especially during the early 20th century when Philips, the electronic giant, started to influence the light life of the world. Exploring the city of Eindhoven with some time to walk the city also outside the center during a Gay Couple City Weekend, opened up the

Gay Couple Bus Trip Volcano Askja Central Iceland – High on our list: the famous Askja Volcano and a swim in its famous caldera lake Víti. But how do you get there safe through the rough nature of the Icelandic central region? Our tip: Let someone else drive and take the bus. The gay-friendly trip with an old but very charming, white and red Mercedes-Benz Bus and driver Alex Stefánsson, is an experience on its own. Together with a group of explorers we started our 11-hours-excursion in Reykjahlíð. From here we passed Hrossaborg into a Southern direction along dusty and

Our first experience with the Gentle Giants - North Iceland Whale Watching Húsavík Gentle Giants. One of our biggest wishes became reality when we started planning our first Whale Watching tour in North Iceland. Two cities are offering a 99% chance of seeing Whales during a tour, Húsavík and Dalvik. We made our first tour with Gentle Giants in Húsaviík. Of course, we were skeptical if we would ever see a whale, but luckily without any reason! Truly a highlight of our 21-days road trip around Iceland.
