NETHERLANDS: It was in summer 2018 during our trip to Berlin for Gay Pride when we first met Roxanne and Maartje, lesbian couple bloggers from the Netherlands.
USA: We visited the small town of Galena in the US-American state of Illinois. It is known for its LGBT and gay-friendliness, making it one of the weekend hideaways for the LGBT community.
SWEDEN: We stayed in a gay couple owned and operated farm hotel with southern Swedish. Janne and Peter converted the historic cottage and buildings into a quaint hotel and restaurant.
SWEDEN: Kivik with its small harbor is a perfect place to do long walks, drink some local cider and try freshly caught seafood. But Kivik is even more, home to an exceptional person of the LGBTQ+ community.
SWEDEN: Embedded in the rough nature of the Kattegat shoreline, we found the gay-friendly and gay couple owned café Ransvik Havsveranda with a special historical significance.
After the Spiegel had already noticed our blog ‘Couple of Men’ and published an interview about our work last year, the popular news magazine stern (around 500.000 monthly readers) with its online version stern.de followed this spring with an interview including a 4-minute video about gay-friendly travel tips and our work as German-Dutch Gay Travel Blogger. In her inquiry, the video editor of the weekly magazine classified as a German-language leading medium was particularly interested in our motivations for Couple of Men, tips for gay-friendly travel and the worst experiences so far as an openly-gay traveling gay couple. This makes Stern interview one of the highlights of our work as a gay travel blogger in Germany so far.
WORLDWIDE: The truth about the day our blog Couple of Men went “viral” because our photo got stolen by internet trolls to connect the LGBTQ+ community to pro-pedophilia.
Love Story of three Gay Couples: “Love Beyond Borders” – An extraordinary love between two human beings needs an extraordinary love story. And some really good storytellers, of course. But before we start to tell you a story of three couples, imagine the following scenario: you and the person you love are separated by several time zones, thousands of kilometers, a couple of countries and oceans, permanently. The only thing how you two can be in contact is to chat via apps, Skype, and, of course, to travel. But despite the distance between you and your love, the only thing that really matters to you is that you are in love.
