The best gay travel bloggers you need to be following!

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.
