Review of our Emerald Lake Lodge gay-friendly Winter stay – Traveling the Canadian Rocky Mountains was an awesome experience. Stunning views, incredibly friendly Canadians and unbelievable natural highlights along and off the Trans-Canada Highway. Right before we hit the road from Lake Louise all the way north to Jasper, we left the Canadian province Alberta for a 2-days short stay at Emerald Lake at Yoho National Park, British Columbia. Surrounded by Emerald and Michael Peak, the 4-star Lodge located on a forested peninsula was a perfect romantic hideaway in Canada, North America, just around the corner from the Canadian town

Sleeping in a Slumber Wine Barrel Taufsteinhütte Central Germany - We have to admit, it was a very special experience to sleep in a wine barrel in the middle of a winter wonderland in the German state Hessen.

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

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.

Level Meliá Villaitana Benidorm gay-friendly - It was the first time for us to stay in an adult only resort. We didn’t know what to expect and what the advantages would be until checking in at the Meliá 5-Star Resort build as a traditional Spanish village in the mountains. No children, luxuriously equipped rooms, professional staff and an overall perfectly relaxing atmosphere created a serious holiday feeling just 15 minutes away from the busy skyscraper city center of the Spanish vacation destination Benidorm.

A stay at ROCKET ROOMS Velden am Wörthersee gay-friendly – Summer time is Pink Lake time!

Our stay at the Calgary Airport Marriott Terminal Hotel Gay-friendly – After our wonderful road trip through Alberta and the Canadian Rocky Mountains all the way up to Jasper for Jasper Pride Festival, we returned to Calgary the head full of impressions and pictures of stunning nature.

The historic Fairmont Palliser Hotel Downtown Calgary Canada – With over 100 hundred years of luxurious hospitality tradition in one building right in the center of Calgary in Alberta, the Fairmont Palliser Hotel is an institution to experience the glamor of recent decades of Canadian Railway Hotel businesses.
