And here it is: The Spartacus Gay Travel Index 2020! The year 2020 started with a huge worldwide challenge named Corona impacting not only our daily lives at home but also the travel industry specifically. Nevertheless, the German publisher of gay travel information and guide books, Spartacus, released today its annual Gay Travel Index with a detailed ranking of 202 (+5 countries) countries worldwide and their LGBTQ+ and gay-friendliness. The 8th edition by the Berlin-based publisher gives lesbian, gay, trans and queer travelers information about how gay-friendly a country and, therefore, a holiday destination is according to several ranking factors

Our second journal about our trip to one of the gay-friendliest countries in Southern America is about Colombia’s capital city, Bogotá. We have to admit, first thoughts that came to our minds when talking about Colombia and Bogotá have been about how dangerous the country and its capital is. But we are happy about how welcoming, friendly, and interesting Colombia’s capital city actually was!

All about our adventurous trip to Colombia, one of the gay-friendliest countries in Southern America. We have to admit, first thinks that come to our minds when talking about Colombia was how dangerous the country is. Even one of our favorite actors in the show Modern Family is continuously playing with the stereotypes of Colombians who seem to like to eat a lot of meat, who seem to be involved in a mafia-like family constellation and have a super passionate and dramatic temper.

Nights to remember at Nakagin Capsule Tower Tokyo Japan. Our first trip to Japan started impressive, different and somehow adventurous. We didn’t choose a hotel for our first nights in Tokyo. Instead, we used a unique and rare Airbnb offer to stay in an architectural icon, the world famous Nakagin Capsule Tower. Designed by the architect Kisho Kurokawa, the capsule tower as a compilation of living 140 living cubes is a remarkable building of the Japanese Metabolism finished in 1972. The building is located right in the center of one of the financial districts of the Japanese capital Tokyo, Shimbashi.

Gay-owned Karnelund Krog & Rum – our gay couple hotel and restaurant review. Close your eyes and imagine yourself on a Swedish farm with apple trees full of juice apples surrounded by a wide golden cornfield. That is how we can describe the Scania landscape and that’s where we spent our last night. But not just somewhere. We stayed in a gay couple owned and operated farm hotel with southern Swedish charm and welcoming atmosphere. Gay couple Janne and Peter converted the historic cottage and buildings into a quaint hotel and restaurant.

Gay-friendly Review of The Vault Hotel in Helsingborg. The next stop on our South Swedish road trip after Mölle was the harbor town Helsingborg. The second biggest city of Scania (Skåne) is known for its beautiful old town, the ferry connection over the Øresund to Denmark and is, in fact, an important industrial location. We arrived in Helsingborg in the early afternoon checking-in at The Vault Hotel just around the corner from Helsingborg’s City Hall.

Tips and highlights for a gay city weekend in New York City during World Pride 2019, the biggest gay pride event ever to commemorate the Stonewall Riots in 1969. A Weekend in New York City – We must admit that this has been on our gay travel to-do list for a long time. But there is hardly a better year to plan a visit to New York than the anniversary year of the LGBTQ+ community’s first uprisings at the Stonewall Inn on Christopher Street. And so we follow in the footsteps of LGBTQ+ activists around the city of New York,

The Spartacus Gay Travel Index 2019: Every year, the German publisher of gay travel information and guide books releases the annual Gay Travel Index with a detailed ranking of 197 LGBTQ+ friendly countries worldwide. In the 7th edition, Berlin-based Spartacus gives lesbian, gay and queer travelers information about how gay-friendly a holiday destination is according to several ranking factors and criteria collecting enough information about LGBTQ+ friendliness and livability for locals. Gay travelers can use this information to prepare for their gaycation as well as taking it as a piece of advice for choosing the holiday destination.

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. And as everyone knows, Berlin is the popular party metropole of Europe for straight and LGBTQ+ people from all over the world. Nothing can be too crazy, too alternative or too inventive. Our trip to Berlin gave us the perfect reason to stay and review the
