Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! The time of year has come, when love, peace, and togetherness are defining our days together with family, friends and each other. Next to all the presents and arrangements, time is the most valuable gift we can give to each other. Once a year, we all have that in common. We try to time for Christmas. This year was fascinating, spectacular and full of love. We would like to thank each and everyone of you for your support, likes and feedback. We really do appreciate every single word. The last days of the year are meant to be with our families in the Netherlands and Germany. We hope you can find your time together with the people you love. Merry Christmas and happy holidays. Karl & Daan. ❤️
NETHERLANDS: Finally, after three Winters without almost any snow Amsterdam turned into a winter wonderland. Big snowflakes falling down from the sky covering Dutch bikes, Grachten boats and the beautiful Grachten houses of Amsterdam Jordaan with beautiful white fresh snow.
Our Top 10 Gay Travel Christmas Gifts – It is time for the fourth edition of our annual list of top list of Gay Travel Christmas Presents 2020. In our last year’s list of gay travel presents, we found some great gifts like wooden bow ties and clothing made of eco materials that support our intentions for 2020 to find and promote sustainability in gay travel, an environmentally friendly restart of our travel plans. This year, we are focussing on gay travel gifts that you can buy or book online and are therefore great last-minute Christmas presents for 2020. And it is a great alternative to do that instead of going into the busy stores, especially now during these unprecedented times. We from Couple of Men wish you a wonderful pre-Christmas time with baking cookies, Christmas game nights, and happy evenings on Gay Christmas markets!

GERMANY: Back to the roots! It always feels like a journey back in time when we are visiting Karl’s family in Eastern Germany. Not only because of the baroque beauty of Dresden’s architectural monuments.
