When I travel, I prefer being hosted by real people - I have some very memorable experiences because of interaction with locals (getting to know their views and recommendations about the places i visited). Usually, I invite my hosts for dinner and drinks, to return the favor of their hospitality. That is also why I like the AirBnB concept - because it embraces the idea of giving back to hosts, in its own unique way.
I want you to have a good time.
That has always been important to me when friends came visiting, and I would like you to feel like visiting a friend, well, more precisely, a friend with a busy schedule ;) As a certified tour guide, I have the pleasure of discovering more and new aspects about Hamburg every day. I don't mind sharing some of that knowledge with my guests, so feel free to ask.
I like Rilke's work Letters To A Young Poet, it inspires me anytime i read a few pages. The film 180° South - Conquerors Of The Useless is worth watching, along with HOME and Is The Man Who Is Tall Happy?

An old Cherokee told his grandson, "My son, there is a battle between two wolves inside us all. One is Evil - it is anger, jealousy, greed, resentment, inferiority, lies and ego. The other is Good - it is joy, peace, love, hope, humility, kindness, empathy and truth."
The boy thought about it and asked, "Grandfather, which wolf wins?"
The old man quietly replied, "The one you feed."
