New York doesn’t end with New York City’s borders. During our trip to the Big Apple prior World Pride 2019, we traveled north to the heart of New York State, the Mid-Hudson Valley region. Although we have been overwhelmed with a welcoming environment, a calmness and gay-friendliness, we have asked ourselves, how can we introduce to you the heart of New York State the best? Because, you know, New York is New York, right? Well, not quite…

Probably one of the gay-friendliest ways to explore Southern Africa. It is hard to find the right words to describe our first ever Africa experience, especially because we choose a completely new way of traveling for us by boarding a train from Rovos Rail. Starting at the Namibian Atlantic coast in Walvis Bay, we traveled on railway tracks through Namibia entering South Africa on our way to Pretoria, South Africa’s capital city. Our nine-days train journey through endless no-mans land, rural inhabited savannah regions, windy sand dunes and the protected National Parks of Namibia turned out to be one of

During our nine days Namibia South Africa Train Safari with Rovos Rail, we had the chance to visit one of the most spectacular sights of Namibia, the dunes and desert of Sossusvlei. To get there is a real African adventure on itself which starts with a bus drive from the Pride of Africa train to the Namibian capital city Windhoek early in the morning. After a short city tour visiting the Independence Memorial Museum, we arrived at the Eros Airport for our one hour flight to the Sossusvlei Dunes in the Namib Desert.

During our nine days Namibia South Africa Train Safari with Rovos Rail, we had the chance to visit one of the biggest National Parks in Africa. Etosha particularly known for its rich life stock including Elephants, Southern white and south-west black Rhinos, Giraffes, Zebras, Kudus and a diverse population of birds like Ostriches and Kori bustards, is located in the Northern part of Namibia, the southwestern African country. Etosha National Park itself is continuously under protection for poachers and other animal threatenings to guarantee a healthy and balanced environment for the animals and vegetation.

Our visit at Disney’s Star Wars Land Galaxy’s Edge in Anaheim, California – It became finally reality! The Star Wars Universe arrived on planet earth and we were able to be among the first people (also known as Star Wars Nerds) to visit Disney Star Wars Land names Galaxy’s Edge during our one-month USA travels for Pride month 2019. LGBTQ+ traveler or local member of the community: the Star Wars Saga from a galaxy far, far away can finally become part of their biggest adventure while visiting the Star Wars planet Batuu. We as gay travel bloggers were among the

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,

Our Top 5 Gay Events this year – 2019 is going to be a great year for celebrating Pride worldwide! We chose five great LGBTQ+ events that caught our attention and which we think are worth traveling to this year. Are you ready for the biggest World Pride celebration ever in 2019 in New York City? Would you rather scream and sing along with 42 new songs that will compete for the European Song Contest crown in Tel Aviv? Or did you always dream about the magical moment holding hands in front of Mickey Mouse wearing some rainbow colored ears?

Our Salzburg Gay Couple City Trip to The Sound of Music, Mozart and Conchita Wurst – Wait, Conchita who? Well, let us start with the beginning. In the wonderful warm month of June, we traveled to the world-famous Austrian city of Salzburg in the northeastern part of the Alpine country. The city, known for its fortress named Fortress Hohensalzburg, came to fame internationally by being the movie location for the American musical drama “The Sound of Music” with Julie Andrews. But of course, the success story of the music city of Salzburg, Austria started already centuries ago having the climax

Exuberant people celebrating on the street, colorful costumes, kisses, and holding hands and above all the rainbow flag blows. This is what it looks like in the meantime when Gay Pride (also known as CSD in Germany) is celebrated in the big cities of Europe and all around the world. However, it has not always been that easy for the LGBTQ+ community to live out and celebrate their love, affection, and identity. Until then, it was a long and certainly not an easy journey (although the fight for equality isn't over yet either).On the occasion of the 50th Anniversary of

Keukenhof Tulip Blossom Holland - Our Day in the “Garden of Europe”. Winter time in Holland is over, Spring has finally arrived in The Netherlands and most parts of Western Europe. Birds start singing early in the morning, the days are getting longer, and the early flowering plants and trees start blossoming.
