The Hundertwasser Houses in Vienna – Keep Calm and Wander

The Hundertwasser Houses in Vienna - Keep Calm and Wander

You might think why a housing complex, like the Hundertwasser Houses in Vienna, is of so much importance considering the fact that the entire architecture of Vienna has the same vibe. Well, when a building has the rebellious touch of Hundertwasser, it’s bound to get some attention that you can’t ignore. They might look weird, but they are marvelously colorful!

The Hundertwasserhaus is a compound with colourful flats built based on the concept conceived by an Austrian artist Friedensrecich Hundertwasser which brought to life by architect Joseph Krawina.

The German architect was just like Gaude. He did not believe in following conventional architecture, nor he took it from the architects who considered themselves pioneer. Instead, he relied on his own vision and the Hundertwasserhaus is an entire depiction of that.

Gay Buenos Aires - The Nomadic Boys

Fresh off the plane, our Porteño friends Pablo and Gustavo welcomed us, and took us straight to the Pepo Pepona, a gay restaurant in Palermo so we could have our first taster of the famous Argentinian steak.

Just as we were tucking into our bife de chorizo, the restaurant’s entertainment started: a handsome (extremely well endowed!) Argentinian lad came gyrating from table to table, quickly losing all his clothes…

At that moment, we knew we were going to enjoy this city a lot!“

We’ve been to gay Buenos Aires several times during our big trip across Latin America, using it as a base. This allowed us to really explore the best of the gay scene and make lots of local friends along the way.

“Buenos Aires is one of the most gay friendly cities in South America, rich with culture (tango shows anyone?), delicious food, and of course lots of beautiful boys.”
We’ve taken all this info and bundled it up to create this bumper gay guide to the Buenos Aires gay scene including best hotels to stay, gay hangouts, events, things to do and more. One thing we can confidently say, whoever you are, whatever you’re into, you’re in for a treat in Buenos Aires.

Berlin Street Food – Dream Euro Trip

Berlin Street Food - Pixabay

Other than different types of sausage Berlin is not really known for its food. This has changed over the last few years with street food now becoming a big tourist draw. In fact, you could say it is thriving and now cuisine from all around the world can be had in Berlin.

Chai Wallahs

Chai Wallahs have become an instant hit in the German capital thanks to the fact that they bring the vibrance of South Asian cookery to life treating diners to exploding flavors, brilliant colors, and that magic that is Indian cuisine which was lacking before they exploded onto the street scene.

Now, locals and tourists flock to get their daily chicken tikka dishes, spicy lentil samosas, and so much more.

5 Nudist Resorts that Will Blow Your Mind – Go Girlfriend

Author: , September 13th, 2019

I have a thing for nudist resorts. I like to visit them. I like to write about them. And I know it’s going to shock you, but I’m neither a hippy or a sex addict.

Naturism can be elegant, provocative and yes, a powerful aphrodisiac. But if you’re like most people and have “thigh hopes” scaring you away, the naked truth is freeing. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and looking good naked is easier when you see we all have not-so-perfect bodies.

Switch off the iPhone (and your boss), drop the kids at Grandma’s and think textile-free for your next vaca. These 5-star resorts are nice enough to tell your parents about – if you dare!

Sea Mountain Ranch Resort And Spa, California

Ranked by the New York Times, Maxim and Spa Finder as a “must-stop destination in Southern California, Sea Mountain Resort is an intriguing pick for a spacation with your lover. It’s adults only and couple friendly – meaning naked couples are encouraged. Singles, not so much.

Utah State Parks – 2TravelDads

Utah State Parks - 2TravelDads

Utah’s National Parks get all the attention, but there are some remarkable Utah state parks and national monuments that give the National Parks a run for their money. We have some great southern Utah state parks and protected areas that are breathtaking and totally worth your time on a Utah road trip.

The goal with visiting southern Utah state parks and protected land is to get the same unique experiences as you find in National Parks but with a fraction of the crowds. True, there aren’t as many facilities or park staff to provide information, and chances are you’ll be on dirt roads for at least a part of the drive, but you’ll be wowed by the experience and ready to return on a future trip.

WHEN TO VISIT SOUTHERN UTAH STATE PARKS

Something that’s wonderful about southern Utah state parks and protected lands is that year round, they are less crowded than the National Parks. Consider this our recommendation to plan a summer vacation to Utah. Yes, it’ll be hot and you’ll need to plan appropriately with sun protection and lots of water, but it’ll be awesome.

If you choose to visit in the off season, you’ll find that some southern Utah state parks are actually at pretty high elevations so you may have some snow surprises. You may be pleasantly surprised though. For example, we visited Bryce Canyon National Park in March and while it was covered in several feet of snow still, the towns of Tropic and Escalante we perfectly dry and warm. Having said that, weather at high elevations can change rapidly and you should be prepared.

Gay Cartagena – The Nomadic Boys

Gay Cartagena

Lonely Planet calls Cartagena the undisputed queen of the Caribbean coast…well that was before these two queens sashayed their way into Colombia’s most touristic city!

The fifth-largest city in Colombia, Cartagena’s old town is a UNESCO World Heritage site. We adored the city’s mix of old and new architectural design. A sprawling maze of cobblestone alleys, colourful colonial-style buildings, and vines of shrubs climbing down the sides of ancient walls could be found on one side. Towering silver skyscrapers and industrial catwalks can be seen on the other.

Rich in appearance, and rich in history, Cartagena still harbours the shadows of multiple pirate attacks from its days of being a port city. Having shipped out boatloads of gold to places like Spain, the city made itself vulnerable to all sorts of invasion. Luckily, it was well equipped to withstand such a thing, and the protective forts can still be seen today.

Yet, it’s going to take more than a fort to keep us away – for when we touched down in the city, we were prepared to take over by any means necessary.

We found the gay scene to be rather small, but definitely worth checking out. There were lots of great spots to eat and drink with incredibly romantic sunset views. Hotel staff were more than accommodating and made our stay super comfy.

With fantastic sites and incredible nightlife, we’ve put down all our discoveries into this travel guide to gay Cartagena!
