Amsterdam Frozen Canals: Our best photos and video of Amsterdam’s frozen canals with ice-skaters on the Keizersgracht and Prinsengracht. – Our home city Amsterdam is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Stunning old buildings along the canals, biker friendly for locals and tourists and, especially during really cold winter days, a winter wonderland for photographers and ice skaters. Ice skaters? Yes, you read correctly. The Netherlands is a country full of rivers, canals, lakes, and any other kind of waterways. Traditionally, the best way to use them during the cold winters in the past was to go

The famous Golden Circle Tour Iceland: Þingvellir, Geysir & Gullfoss | Part 2: The days in Iceland’s capital Reykjavik were wonderful: close to the nature with nordic architecture as a perfect starting point for our 21 days road trip around the whole island Iceland. Karl & Daan, two nature lovers going with a 4×4 Land Cruiser, a tent and all necessary equipment on a discovery trip. Huge waterfalls, a walk between the American and European tectonic plates the world famous Geysir left us simply speechless. But there is more to see during the first steps of untouched nature. The Golden

You might remember our first trip last summer where we attended Malmö Pride and toured around the Southern part of Sweden, Scania. This year, we are going back to see even more of Malmö especially the preparations for World Pride 2021 together with Copenhagen. Well, out of this idea developed a plan to see more of central Europe. The idea for a staycation 2020 was born. After our road trip to Sweden, we will make our way over the Baltic Sea to Germany by ferry in order to start our one-month road “Best of LGBTQ+ Germany”. Join us on our

SOUTHERN AFRICA: It is hard to find the right words to describe our first ever Africa experience, especially because we choose a completely new way of traveling for us by boarding a train from Rovos Rail. Starting at the Namibian Atlantic coast in Walvis Bay, we traveled on railway tracks through Namibia entering South Africa on our way to Pretoria, South Africa’s capital city. Our nine-days train journey through endless no-mans land, rural inhabited savannah regions, windy sand dunes and the protected National Parks of Namibia turned out to be one of our biggest gay travel adventures ever.

COSTA RICA: The natural beauty with its white-sand beaches, palm trees, rainforest, and spectacular rough coastline is incredibly diverse. And do not forget the biodiversity with its famous Costa Rican animals like the Toucans, the Red-Eyed Leaf (Tree) Frogs, the sloths, the screeching macaws, and even whales are incomparable. And, of course, not to forget to mention the friendly and courteous Costa Ricans and the great number of high-class luxurious gay-friendly accommodations that are just made to fall in love with Gay-friendly Costa Rica. The most important fact you should know about: Costa Rica is one of the safest, LGBT

Our Top Highlights Best Photos Gay Couple Travel Vietnam – a diary of our first trip together outside Europe to Asia. As tourists of the world before we started to write our gay couple travel blog, we had an exciting time in Vietnam. The country with history charged traditions starting as a part of the Chinese Empire, the French colonization, the Japanese occupation, and the two-states solution often ended up in a war inside Vietnam or with its international neighbors and allies. After the well-known Vietnam War between North and South Vietnam by involving the United States of America

Keukenhof Tulip Blossom Holland - Our Day in the “Garden of Europe”. Winter time in Holland is over, Spring has finally arrived in The Netherlands and most parts of Western Europe. Birds start singing early in the morning, the days are getting longer, and the early flowering plants and trees start blossoming. Here in our home country the Netherlands, also known as the world’s largest exporter of flowers, it is time to visit the Garden of Europe Keukenhof, to see the beauty of nature with tulips, crocuses, hyacinths, and all the other colorful flowers. This Mid-April weekend it was finally

Our Gay Couple Pilgrimage Japan Kumano Kodo Part 1 - After our first days in Tokyo, we seriously wanted to go to our limits when making a Pilgrimage in Japan on the famous traditional Kumano Kodo route from Ki Tanabe to Nachi through the Wakayama mountains. Already during the preparation period back home in Amsterdam for our one-month trip Japan, the 4-days trail through Japanese nature along centuries-old hiking paths went quickly upon our Japan bucket list, quite rightly. Because it truly was one of the hardest, most intense and spiritually full filling hiking trips we ever did on our gay-travels

SWEDEN: The Scandinavian country Sweden is a dream destination for us. Why? Well, it offers everything we need for a perfect vacation from beautiful nature, stunning views to a broad variety of organic and locally sourced cuisine. We got super excited about the offer to join forces with the National Tourism Board of Skåne, also known as Scania, to show you the gay-friendly side of Southern Sweden. And by writing that, we are most definitely not exaggerating.

After our Gay City Trip to Malmö, we took a rental car to drive all the way northwest of the South Swedish county Skåne. The first stop on our 5-day road trip was the Kullaberg Nature Reserve and the little fisher village Mölle. Stunning views, rough nature, and the cute little colorful Swedish houses give this region of Sweden a very unique atmosphere. Embedded in the rough nature of the Kattegat shoreline (name of the sea between Northern and Baltic Sea), we found the gay-friendly and gay couple owned café Ransvik Havsveranda with a special historical significance.
