Our travel journey has been full of exciting adventures, memorable experiences and gay stories, plus many lessons learned. We’ve spent the past 8 years abroad and couldn’t be happier with our decision. We’ve seen the world and the diversity of our experience has opened our eyes and taught us so much. We share a passion for travel and take many trips together. We created this blog to encourage you to explore the world and never be afraid of who you are. So, whether you travel alone, with a friend or a significant other, remember to be thankful for what you have and continue to seek out those new opportunities. We recognize that travel is a privilege but it’s also a way to learn about different cultures, open hearts and minds and most certainly, a way to build unforgettable memories. We've put together a collection of some of our most memorable gay stories from our travel adventures. You can explore a wide range of gay stories below from travels to Asia and Central Europe plus relationship woes and cool interviews.
