avid travelers | dog lovers | food fanatics | entrepreneurs
We are a young married couple in our thirties. We've traveled to 39 countries between the two of us, 25 of them together and counting. We typically travel as backpackers and while we love to be comfortable, will enthusiastically "rough it" in the quest for a unique adventure. We have all sorts of stories that started out with something along the lines of, "Hey, that sounds cool." We have two favorite aspects of travel - meeting/learning about people and trying/enjoying as much food we can physically handle.
We met and married in Atlanta, GA, backpacked for a bit as newlyweds, lived in Mexico City for a few years and are now settled in Philadelphia with our two mini dachshunds, Chicha and Lucho. Marco grew up in Mexico CIty and Kristin just outside of Philly. We make our living as entrepreneurs and make our life about the experiences we have/create every day. We're big believers that 'the best is yet to come' and this drives us to try new things, take risks and explore in all aspects of our life.
We believe that the best thing in the world is to be exposed to new people, places and things. When you can connect with a local the experience is so much better. We love to share our favorite bakeries, coffee shops, restaurants, food spots, markets, etc. that are tucked around the city, plus the must see cultural stops and the best ways to get around the city. Philadelphia is a beautiful place to visit and we love for people to get the most out of their time here.
Travelers who stay with us can expect a clean, comfortable and safe space to come home to and two hosts who will help make your time in Philly special. We work a lot, but are always available for questions and conversation over a strong cup of coffee.
