Kivik’s gay Cake Cowboy. The third stop on our 5-days road trip around South Sweden was Kivik, a locality in Österlen, the southeastern part of Scania (Skåne). This picturesque village with its small harbor is simply perfect to take long walks, enjoy some of the cider the region is famous for and enjoy some freshly caught seafood by sunset. But Kivik is even more. It is home to a very special person of the LGBTQ+ community who has his own story of pride, acceptance and gay life to tell. Yes, we are talking about the Cake Cowboy Markus Lundqvist,

Gay Summer Adventure Skåne – Road Trip South 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.

A Gay Couple Road Trip East Iceland to the Edge of the Arctic - Leaving the South behind, the gay couple started their way to the unknown East, before heading North along the coast. Highlights of this area are without any doubt the East Fjords with high mountains with deep and narrow valleys, the powerful waterfall Dettifoss and the stories of the hidden people around Ásbyrgi. After visiting Hrossaborg (set for the blockbuster Oblivion) the goal of this part of their gay travel was the active volcano area around lake Mývatn. Enjoy Karl and Daan's journey from East Iceland to

Our first trip to Canada brought us to Alberta, the western Canadian province famous for the Canadian Rocky Mountains, incredibly beautiful nature, the world-famous scenic Icefields Parkway and its amazing food scene. But also for the well-known cities Edmonton, Calgary, Banff and, of course, Jasper. The goal of our 14-days Road Trip to the Canadian Rocky Mountains in March was Jasper, a small mountain town famous for its annually Jasper Pride Festival with a gay pride parade on the hills of the

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.

A Gay Couple Ghost Town Adventure Bodie California USA – You know, we love adventures off the beaten tracks. Therefore, we talked to all the friendly Americans we met at Yosemite National Park to find our next special place to go. The special tip came from Pete, a bearded ranger at Yosemite Lake Resorts, just outside the West Gate of Yosemite National Park. He suggested the most photogenic Ghost Town of the Wild West in California, called Bodie. The abandoned town located in the Bodie Hills east of the Sierra Nevada mountain range tells a long story about how the

Road Trip USA Highlights American South West - It was an awesome experience to travel around the country of boundless possibilities on our road trip around the southwest of the USA. Our tour started and ended in San Francisco, going counter clock around the states of California, Utah, Arizona, and Nevada back to California. Starting with our drive south from San Francisco to Los Angeles on the famous Pacific Highway 1, we found abounded places along the coast around Big Sur and beautiful, long beaches in Malibu, California.

Our Gay Couple Summer Road Trip Canada – Edmonton & the North-Eastern lakes of Alberta. After visiting Calgary and the Rocky Mountains including the Icefields Parkway, and Jasper, it was time for us to see more of the beautiful West Canadian province, Alberta. Therefore, we put the Edmonton Gay Pride, on our gay travel bucket list for 2018! But Alberta’s capital city at the North Saskatchewan River was just the beginning of our two weeks gaycation in Canada. We left Edmonton behind to go east and drove from there a good portion of the Northern Woods and Water Route in

The Willow Los Angeles Hollywood California gay-friendly – It was not easy to find the right accommodation around Los Angeles and Hollywood, but we managed to find this beautiful apartment in a quiet area in between both cities in California, USA. The view out of apartment number 5 was simply beautiful for the morning coffee and the nights have been calm on a comfortable mattress under starlight. Just a 15 minutes ride with the car to the well-known gay area of West Hollywood made the choice of the dinner location with drinks really easy. Within just 20 minutes (depending on
