A Dutch Island Vlieland Autumn Weekend – What to do on a rainy autumn weekend in the Netherlands in Northern Europe? This question is good to answer with a weekend escape to the Watten Sea at the north coast of the Netherlands to enjoy a Dutch Island Vlieland Autumn Weekend just 1,5 hours north of the Dutch capital Amsterdam. But do you know how to get to Vlieland with a ferry, what to do on Vlieland in autumn and what if it starts raining? Did you know there is cranberry weekend, that you can listen to a candlelight concert in

The 9th edition of the Goldelsen-Cup Berlin Gay Lesbian Volleyball Tournament 2017 – It is time to kick-off our Gay Sports articles on our blog with this year’s Goldelsen Cup in Berlin! The 9th edition of the annual International Gay and Lesbian Volleyball Tournament in Berlin is considered to be one of the biggest European LGBTQ+ Sports Tournaments taking place at the end of November in the German capital. As chance would have it, Karl is a passionate Volleyball player who started his Volleyball career at the age of 12. After he came out of the closet, Karl decided to

Karl’s gay travels to Kathmandu, Nepal in 2008 before the earthquake – Yes, it is already quite a while ago since I was backpacking in India and Nepal. But the fascinating country in the Himalayas left a deep mark in my memories being so different, lovely and disturbing at the same time. When I was packing my backpack for my trip to India for a month, I was always having one eye on the mystically country in the highest mountain range in the world. Correctly, as I was experiencing it firsthand, not only while I was flying around the

Lady T-Dance Party The Cruise 2017: After an exciting day exploring the Canary Islands La Gomera and La Palma the day before, the cruise ship Monarch sets sail into the sunset towards the island Tenerife. Enough time to have dinner, refresh and get dressed for one of The Cruise party highlights in 2017: the Ladies T-Dance on the pool deck. The weather could not have been better when the first high heels entered the dancefloor. Blue sky and warm summer sun were promising making the Lady Party a total success, again!

Disco T-Dance Party The Cruise 2017: Right after being back from our one-day trip to the Portuguese flower island Madeira, we slipped into our golden wrestling outfits, put on our disco wigs and golden sunglasses to join the party crowd on the pool deck to “Boogie Oogie Oogie” into the night. The annual Disco Party is already for some years now a fixed part of The Cruise Party itinerary and was again on our gay cruise this year.

Where are you from Party The Cruise 2017: As a permanent costume party feature, The Cruise by La Demence organizes the getting-to-know event as one of the first parties of the annual cruise week. There are more than two thousand gay men on board the cruise ship Monarch but we actually have no idea where every single man actually comes from! And there were lot men to take into account! In total 86 different nationalities from all over the world gathered together for one big colorful, peaceful gaycation celebration on board the gay cruise ship!

Humpback Whale Watching Dalvík North Iceland with Arctic Sea Tours. After we met the first mammal giants on our first Whale Watching tour in Husavík, we got so excited and fascinated, we wanted to see more whales. Lucky us, we had a little extra time during our 21-day Road Trip Iceland to try a second whale watching tour in North Iceland. Wonderful sunny weather, a calm sea and a lot of whales with time for our whale-selfie (see below) made our adventure a great part of our 13 Top Highlights Road Trip Iceland. If you are doubting which location

Level Meliá Villaitana Benidorm gay-friendly - It was the first time for us to stay in an adult only resort. We didn’t know what to expect and what the advantages would be until checking in at the Meliá 5-Star Resort build as a traditional Spanish village in the mountains. No children, luxuriously equipped rooms, professional staff and an overall perfectly relaxing atmosphere created a serious holiday feeling just 15 minutes away from the busy skyscraper city center of the Spanish vacation destination Benidorm.

Finally Equality Germany Same-Sex Marriage – This year Germany will have parliamentary elections (for the Bundestag) where Angela Merkel is up for re-election for the fourth time. Until now, the German government is against marriage equality and allows only the soft version of the gay marriage as a civil union since 2001. That means German members of the LGBTQ+ community are not able to claim same rights compared to straight relationships. But this is about to change, thanks to LGBTQ+ activists in Germany and for sure thanks to all the people joining German Gay Pride Parades of the last years.
