[edgtf_dropcaps type=”normal” color=”#3f6557″ background_color=””]H[/edgtf_dropcaps]appy New Year’s celebrations everyone and may 2017 be a good year for you and your beloved ones! We would like to thank you for your loyalty and support during our past travel months, for your tips, advice, and for all the time we spend together along the travel paths. The past 12 months have been very special to us. Exploring unknown countries, meeting so many, so lovely people and being able to attend Gay Pride Parades in Helsinki, Tel Aviv, and Amsterdam just made 2016 to one of our best travel years we ever had.

Nevertheless, the world for the LGBT Community is changing. We saw a lot of bright and promising moments with new countries embracing equal marriage and rainbow demonstrations worldwide. But Lesbian, Gay, and Trans people experienced also pain, punishment, and injustice in 2016. Our mission while traveling the world together as an openly gay couple is to bring support, love, and the optimistic side of life to the destinations we are visiting. We are looking forward to keep on doing that in 2017 together with you. Now, enjoy our Couple of Men’s travel year 2016 with one picture per destination and we hope you will stay inspired with us for all our upcoming adventures.

January 2016 – Eindhoven | Part 1 Dutch City Tour

The year 2016 started for us with Daan acting in the Dutch family play “De Gelaarsde Poes” touring around the Netherlands. A great option for Karl to explore Daan’s home country. Our first Gay Couple Weekend Trip brought us to Eindhoven in the south of the Netherlands. And of course, we have pictures of Daan as Princess Willeke.

January 2016 – Groningen | Part 2 Dutch City Tour

Our second destination on our Dutch City Tour was Groningen, all the way up north of the Netherlands. During our stay, we were able to visit the Groninger Museum with its David Bowie exhibition. May he rest in peace.

February 2016 – The Hague | Part 3 Dutch City Tour

Call it Den Haag, De Hague or The Hague, the Dutch city not far from the coast is worth a visit and full of surprises. We spent there a long weekend in February staying in a wonderful loft in the city center.

February 2016 – Utrecht | Part 4 Dutch City Tour

Also called the heart of the Netherlands. City number four of our Dutch Tour was Utrecht. The tiny, cozy but mostly underrated canal city has its own, heart warming flair and a lovely LGBT community. In 2017, the city is planning the first ever Utrecht Canal Pride, a small version of the Amsterdam Pride Parade. We are looking forward to seeing love and rainbows in this beautiful city.

March 2016 – Nijmegen | Part 5 Dutch City Tour

Duch city number five was Nijmegen, the city close to the German border. Although it was March, we had great weather conditions to rent a bicycle and bike this city in Gelderland along the Waal river and enjoyed good food and interesting architecture.

March 2016 – Rotterdam | Part 6 Dutch City Tour

The major harbor city of the Netherlands, Rotterdam, was our 6th stop on the Dutch city tour. Impressive architecture, for example of the Erasmus bridge, water taxi tours and great food places made our weekend in Rotterdam a fantastic time just on the edge of spring time.

 

Our #gayfriendly hotel of the week: @mainport.hotel in the #Dutch city #rotterdam! Art themed floors and rooms, a huge rooftop wellness area with view over the city harbor and Erasmus bridge and our waterfront spa room with a whirlpool are just some of the highlights of the 5*-Mainport Hotel.

March/April 2016 – Austria Carinthia, Villach & Gerlitzen

Daan had to play and so the time had come for Karl to travel without his man to Austria to enjoy the late winter sun in Carinthia in the south of the Austrian Alps. We cannot wait to travel together to our first Gay Ski Weekend. More about that very soon on our Gay travel blog!

June 2016 – USA, New York City

On our way back home, we had a short stop over for some hours to get a sneaky inside of New York City. Huge, crowded and fantastic.. would be the right words to describe the East coast metropole of the USA.

 

[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”20px”][vc_column_text]

June 2016 – Israel, Tel Aviv

Just back from the American continent, we were invited to explore Tel Aviv during Gay Pride 2016. A whole week was set up to see the beauty of the Gay capital of the middle East with a day at a water park party, a hotel experience with a rooftop pool and the grand finale with the unique Tel Aviv Pride Parade. Enjoy more pictures in our travel blogs.

August 2016 – Netherlands, Amsterdam

August was meant to be some home-time in Amsterdam. But of course, the Gay Euro Pride in the Dutch Capital Amsterdam is a must-do on our annual travel list. This year we were lucky to spend the Pride Parade with our friends from Sweden. Enjoy our photos of the Gay Pride Canal Parade of 2016. We hope to meet you here in 2017!
