The year of Canada’s 150th anniversary is the year of our first gay travels to the biggest North American country. Our first trip to Canada brought us to Alberta, the western Canadian province famous for the Canadian Rocky Mountains, incredibly beautiful nature, the world-famous scenic Icefields Parkway and its amazing food scene. But also for the well-known cities Edmonton, Calgary, Banff and, of course, Jasper. The goal of our 14-days Road Trip to the Canadian Rocky Mountains in March was Jasper, a small mountain town famous for its annually Jasper Pride Festival with a gay pride parade on the hills of the ski resort Marmot Basin.

We actually just came back from our Christmas holidays with Karl’s family in Germany when we received emails from our Twitter followers and an NBC journalist. What we did not know back then was that an internet troll used our photo tweeting about pro-pedophilia and going viral among far-right politicians, especially in the United States of America. This is when our unexpected Twitter story begins… Experience the last seven days on Twitter through a couple of men‘s eyes.
