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. Here in our home country the Netherlands, also known as the world’s largest exporter of flowers, it is time to visit the Garden of Europe Keukenhof, to see the beauty of nature with tulips, crocuses, hyacinths, and all the other colorful flowers. This Mid-April weekend it was finally

And here it is: The Spartacus Gay Travel Index 2020! The year 2020 started with a huge worldwide challenge named Corona impacting not only our daily lives at home but also the travel industry specifically. Nevertheless, the German publisher of gay travel information and guide books, Spartacus, released today its annual Gay Travel Index with a detailed ranking of 202 (+5 countries) countries worldwide and their LGBTQ+ and gay-friendliness. The 8th edition by the Berlin-based publisher gives lesbian, gay, trans and queer travelers information about how gay-friendly a country and, therefore, a holiday destination is according to several ranking factors

Our second journal about our trip to one of the gay-friendliest countries in Southern America is about Colombia’s capital city, Bogotá. We have to admit, first thoughts that came to our minds when talking about Colombia and Bogotá have been about how dangerous the country and its capital is. But we are happy about how welcoming, friendly, and interesting Colombia’s capital city actually was!

Love, our world needs more love. For us, Valentine’s Day on February 14th is the best day to remember how important it is to show your love to the people you hold most dear. It is about love for another human being and to accept, to respect and to embrace its uniqueness. We are happy to share some of our gay love moments from our travels with you on a day that is made for love, romance and time together. If you don’t have a present for your girlfriend, boyfriend or simply the person you love, just give him or

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

Our 10 Whistler Pride Highlights 2019 – It seems to become an annual habit, a good one we have to add. Starting the new year with a Gay Ski Week Pride trip to Canada is just the best way to kick off our gay travel plans for 2019. It was time again to pack our bags and pride ski outfits and fly over to Vancouver to attend the 27th annual Whistler Pride Gay Ski Week in the Whistler Mountains, British Columbia. The first Gay Pride of the season for us brings lesbians, gays, and queers from around the globe together

Our Top 7 Gay Events this year – It seriously looks like the year 2020 is going to be a great year for celebrating LGBTQ+ events worldwide! We chose seven great LGBTQ+ events for the first year of the twenties that caught our attention and which we would like traveling to this year. Are you ready for the first edition of the Pride of the Americas or the EuroPride in Greece? Or would you rather scream and sing along with 42 new songs that will compete for the European Song Contest crown in Rotterdam? What about an international festival in

Also this year the visit to Gay Pride Parades and CSD Events all over the world was at the top of our Gay Travel Bucket List. We are proud that we went hand in hand with our rainbow flag to a total of six Gay Pride parades in 2019. From Canada, the USA and Sweden to Amsterdam, we support the LGBTQ + community in their struggle for equality and acceptance and continue the LGBTQ+ history of the numerous lesbian, gay, trans and queer activists.

All about our adventurous trip to Colombia, one of the gay-friendliest countries in Southern America. We have to admit, first thinks that come to our minds when talking about Colombia was how dangerous the country is. Even one of our favorite actors in the show Modern Family is continuously playing with the stereotypes of Colombians who seem to like to eat a lot of meat, who seem to be involved in a mafia-like family constellation and have a super passionate and dramatic temper.

Our Top 10 Gay Travel Christmas Gifts 2019 – It is time for the third edition of our annual list of the top list of Gay Travel Christmas presents. In our last year’s list of gay travel presents, we found some great gifts like wooden bow ties and clothing made of eco materials that support our intentions for 2019 to find and promote sustainability in gay travel. This year, we are focussing on gay travel gifts that you can buy or book online and are therefore great last-minute Christmas presents. Make sure to check our Christmas raffle on Instagram where
