Review of Klaus K Design Hotel Helsinki Gay-friendly – Before we start with our review of the Klaus K Hotel Helsinki, we want to warn you, it is going to be a very sexy gay-friendly hotel article. Not only because of all the sexy and intimidating painting by Touko Valio Laaksonen, much better known as Tom of Finland. A must do for LGBT travelers coming to Helsinki is to learn more about Tom of Finland and the open mindset of the Finnish people who legalist same sex-marriage in 2017.

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 Gay Couple Travel Hamburg Germany – The Hanseatic city in the Northern part of Germany was high on our gay travel’s bucket list already for a while. And so we were happy to take the opportunity to visit Hamburg for three days in early summer. Exploring the main port city of Germany was a comforting journey through the old parts like Warehouse District and the gay (friendly) neighborhood St. Georg. And don’t forget our Pyjama Park Hotel stay at one of the most crowded party streets of Hamburg, the Reeperbahn.

Our stay at Kumagaiji Buddhist Temple Lodging Koyasan Japan. One of our highlights and on top of our bucket list for our Japan Travels was without any doubt our two-nights stay at a Buddhist monastery in the mountains of Mount Koya in the South of Osaka. Already the way up on the mountain plateau with a cable car was stunning. But the 120 temples, the graveyards and temple lodgings around Koyasan were just breathtaking. Don’t miss the chance during a trip into the Wakayama Mountains to visit Japanese Buddhist center Koyasan (Kōya-san) and be brave enough to sleep on the

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

The Pyjama Park Hotel Hamburg Reeperbahn – is an accommodation with best value for the money for a stay in Hamburg. The German city Hamburg, in particular, the Reeperbahn in St. Pauli, is well known for its nightlife. Loads of bars, clubs, and restaurants next to each other creating an atmosphere until late in the night. Our Hotel, the Pyjama Park Hotel, was located right in the beginning of the Reeperbahn in an old town building above the Pyjama Bar.

A Gay Couple City Weekend Rotterdam: Rotterdam, a city of water, wind, art, architecture and a special atmosphere of independence. During Karl and Daan's Gay City Weekend Rotterdam the gay couple traveled around the beautiful mix of architecture, water and nature atmosphere of the Major Port city of Europe. From the 5-Star Mainport Hotel Rotterdam the tour went over water with several boat trips, extraordinary good food, an inspirational visit to the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, an Escape Room and a lively gay nightlife. Follow the guys on their Dutch gay city tour part 6!

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.
