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.
