Tips and Highlights of our gay travel to Cape Town’s south side. From the city center of Cape Town, we made our way to the Cape Peninsula exploring False Bay. Our base for the second part of our Gay Travels to Cape Town was one of the most luxurious and gay-friendliest guesthouses we have ever visited. Located in St James, Cape Town overlooking False Bay, we visited Muizenberg with its white beach and colored beach hats, Kalk Bay with some great restaurants and shops and started our trips south.

Tips and Highlights of our 4-days Gay Travels to Cape Town in South Africa. Our first trip together to the African continent brought us first to South Africa, specifically to its capital city Cape Town, the so-called Mother City. In order to experience as much as possible from the metropole in the Western Cape county, we split our trip into two parts. We spent our first days in the heart of Cape Town staying in a gay-friendly hotel in Green Point.

A journal of our 4-day Gay City Trip to Malmö during Pride Weekend. Did we already mention, that we love Sweden? The Scandinavian country is one of our favorite European gay travel destinations that is currently ranking on the top position of this year’s Gay Travel Index 2019 together with Canada. But besides this encouraging data, we experienced an ongoing welcoming and LGBTQ+ friendly environment be it in the bigger cities of Stockholm or Malmö or in the countryside of the South Swedish county Skåne.

Gay Chicago – City Guide to Pride and the Gay Neighborhoods. We have finally visited the world-famous city of wind in the American Mid West, Chicago.

Suitably during pride month, we as gay couple travel bloggers were invited to attend Gay Pride in Chicago, the Pride Park Festival and explore the gay neighborhoods of the city, Boystown and Andersonville.

A Dutch Winter Day Amsterdam Netherlands – The unexpected happened: 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. There is nothing better than to jump in our winter clothes, snap the camera and walk through the capital of the Netherlands on a Winter Day in February. We decided to take a walking tour along the Bloemgracht of the Dutch capital towards the famous Westerkerk close by the Anna-Frank House

Gay Couple City Weekend Nice, France in December - a trip to French Luxury, Food and Beauty. Nice is a hot spot at the Mediterranean Sea in between the Film Festival in Cannes and the Luxury destination Monaco for shopping and high-society lifestyle. For most people, a trip to the French Côte D'Azur is connected to a perfect stop for Carvneval in February or a beach break in Summer, but certainly not for an Advent Weekend in December. In Winter time, Nice is the perfect place for a couple of men to spent a relaxed Gay Couple City Weekend. Sunny

Review of the MOXY Hotel Berlin Ostbahnhof Gay-friendly – Time again for Berlin, the capital city in the eastern part of Germany. Famous for its arty, alternative and hipsters lifestyle as well as for its history as a divided city, Berlin is an all year round destination, worth a weekend or full week trip.

Our trip to Berlin gave us the perfect reason to stay and review the
