A Gay Couple hiking Svínafellsjökull Glacier – After parking our car, we walked to the small wooden house of Arctic Adventures. After the check in and the try out of our “ice-shoes”, a small bus for approximately 10 people brought us and our tour guide Síf to the foot of the glacier tongue of Svínafellsjökull. Equipped with our camera, crampons and ice-picks the tour started heading towards the thousand of years old ice. The backstory of all the geological particularities was simply impressive!

Restaurant Cantinetta Wine & Pasta in Amsterdam West – This amazing place is very special to us. Let us tell you a short story about “our” favorite restaurant Cantinetta Wine & Pasta in Amsterdam West (very gay-friendly). During Karl’s first time visiting Daan over the weekend three years ago, we went together to the, back then, recently opened restaurant Cantinetta Wine & Pasta in Amsterdam West. The food was (still is) amazing and with its “Berlin sense of style” it felt for Karl a bit like home. Talking to the owners, the lesbian couple Debb and Claudia, made this first time eating at Cantinetta like a cozy family dinner. Since then, already 3 years passed by and we are coming here regularly to meet our “girlfriends” and spoil our tummies.
Restaurant “Soepboer” in Amsterdam Noord – If you got hungry and you are on the lookout for a nice place to lunch in Amsterdam Noord, take a 10-minutes walk to the cosy restaurant “Soepboer”.

ICELAND: The waters of the lagoon lake flows into a short river, that flows into the ocean with smaller and bigger Icebergs. A huge bridge for cars and pedestrians connects both sides of the water.
The Restaurant GYS Voorstraat Utrecht is our tip for a city trip to Utrecht. Especially after a morning exploring the Dutch city. If you get hungry in the center, just walk around the famous Janskerk. In less than 5 minutes your next stop for a Lunch break is GYS. It is very easy to find, just at the corner of Amsterdamsestraatweg and Voorstraat in an old Dutch building, you will find one of the two GYS, the restaurant GYS Voorstraat Utrecht.
SWEDEN: Springtime is Eurovision time. After Måns Zelmerlöw won the ESC 2015 in Vienna, it was again time for Sweden after Malmö 2013 to host the biggest multicultural music festival in Europe.
Restaurant Dertien Rotterdam is one of the hipper and interesting places Rotterdam has to offer. The Chef together with his young and motivated staff are offering special food and a variety of delicious drinks. The two-floor restaurant feels very open and the real fire oven (for cooking) and the old-fashioned way of “writing” the menu by putting small wooden cards with a ladder on the wall, gives this place a sense of craftsmanship with an eye for details. Talk to the guys and ask about their particular way of preparing food by fermentation. Especially a good place for foodies who like a bit of adventure and innovation.
