When we entered the gay travel blogging community in 2013, we became part of a very cool, albeit small, niche travel family.
Over these many years, we've seen our little gay travel blogging family evolve into something greater. These are our 20 favourite gay travel bloggers who have become an important part of our online world. We love them all, and celebrate each one of them right here:
Couple of Men
Karl and Daan are absolutely gorgeous together. Their branding is also so on point. Every image they produce is very iconic of gay love. The boys are based in Amsterdam. Karl is originally German and Daan is Dutch. We met the boys during the Whistler Gay ski week near Vancouver in Canada.

Two Bad Tourists
Auston and David are the super cute duo behind Two Bad Tourists. They left the USA to travel the world in early 2012 and have since settled in Spain as a base for their gay travel blogging adventures. We love these guys – they're always a lot fun to hang out with. One of our favourite travel adventures with them was discovering gay Gran Canaria together.

OUR FAVOURITE TRAVEL TIPS
⭐️ TRAVEL INSURANCE — We recommend you always take out travel insurance before your next vacation. What happens if you suffer from illness, injury, theft or a cancellation? With travel insurance, you can have peace of mind and not worry. We love World Nomads travel insurance and have been using it for years. Their comprehensive coverage is second to none and their online claims process is very user friendly.
⭐️ SAFETY & SECURITY — All travelers (gay or not) can sometimes encounter danger when traveling. CloseCircle is your “virtual body guard” mobile app which provides security alerts and support wherever you are in the world. They have a 24/7 emergency response team monitoring their users who will contact you immediately if the SOS swipe button is activated. Support can include anything from practical advice, to free evacuation from areas with extreme weather or security risks. You can read more about CloseCircle in our article about how to stay safe whilst traveling.
⭐️ ONLINE ANONYMITY — A VPN (Virtual Private Network) is a must in many countries: it allows you to surf anonymously and maintain your privacy whilst traveling. You'll particularly need it in countries where gay dating apps are blocked by the government. We recommend ExpressVPN, a reliable and cost effective service which we used and loved during our travels.
⭐️ HOTELS or APARTMENTS — When we plan a trip, we always look for the best hotel deals. We love Booking.com because not only do they have a comprehensive listing of accommodation options, they also offer the best prices. Added bonus: they provide 24/7 support and free cancellation for most listings.
⭐️ SIGHTSEEING and ADVENTURES — When we travel somewhere, we like to seek out the best experiences, whether it is cooking with locals in Bangkok, hiking on a glacier in Patagonia, or going on a wildlife safari in Sri Lanka. Our favorite place to look is GetYourGuide because they have over 30,000 highly rated activities, a user-friendly booking process with free cancellation and a 24 hour customer support.
