The Amsterdam Gay Travel Blog

Press Media Publications Couple of Men: We are Karl and Daan, two gay travelers by heart. Together we are exploring the world around us starting from our home city Amsterdam, the Netherlands, Europe and the whole world. Therefore, we are professionals in creating visual and written content. We see our travels as an ongoing learning process for ourselves and our friends, readers, and followers finding gay-friendly and open-minded places in the world. Nothing can substitute the values of locals showing us around and guiding us to their most favorite hidden gems off the beaten track.

Starting with our blog, we were able to build up a broad and highly engaged fan community from all over the world. Our professional skills in writing, filming, photographing, WordPress processing and marketing are some of the reasons for our successful interactive online presence on Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, and Facebook.

And this is just the beginning...

We started our blog in Summer 2015 and recognize and incredible growth in followers and an increasing demand in openly gay travel bloggers for gay pride all over the world. Additional to that gay travel not only means gay parties, pride parades, and gay cafés. The independent LGBT traveler is nowadays much more interested in every gay-friendly way of exploring the unknown place in unknown countries.

But the most important thing is authenticity and real life. We are receiving daily fan messages with compliments about how real, how authentic and how much we are like their best friends. And exactly that is what makes us different, special, real.

During our press trips to Stockholm, Helsinki, the Gay Cruise and Tel Aviv, we were able to show the real beauty of our world behind the mostly superficial mask of perfection. We would love to show that of every place we go, every pride we participate and every adventure trip to nature we are doing.
