My name is Philippe.
I'm a German national working in Geneva, Switzerland, as a lawyer for the United Nations.
Through my work I frequently travel abroad and prefer staying at unique apartments, than in big hotels that lack the personal touch.
When out of town, I make available my own place in central Geneva, and am hence aware of the concerns one has when opening one's doors to others.
Given my own preference for "living like a local", I've given the benefit of the doubt and so far not been disappointed once.
