We are Kristin and Phil. Kristin works for a German cruise company as the head of the Kids & Teens, and Edutainment departments. She create programs for kids, teens and adults to discover the world while they are on their holiday trip with a small team and a lot of passion. Phil works as a freelance Creative Designer for live performance all around the globe. His work has been seen in Hamburg, New York, Los Angeles and elsewhere.
We'd love to welcome you to our home! So many others have welcomed us into theirs through AirBnB and Couchsurfing, and we'd love to open up our home to you. We love to host, but will also stay out of your way. Visiting the city, any city, it's important to get out and really experience it. We'll provide you with information and tips on the places to go and things to do.
The last ten years Kristin and Phil have spent a lot of time traveling the world extensively (Australia, Mexico, Europe, United States, Southeast Asia). But there is still so much to explore. We love to explore the culture which is why we like to stay with local people.
We like cooking with friends, wandering around in nature, reading books, being near the ocean, having interesting conversations about our world and exchanging ideas. We like a lot of music and Kristin was once a singer in a cover band. Kristin prefers traveling with her backpack and not on a cruise, while Phil prefers cruises. Kristin loves her job, though, because she can take kids on cruises into another world and create things they can't explore at home. It's Kristin's dream to maybe one day open a kind of family hotel..
We are both very respectful whenever we stay with other people, and always strive to leave no trace. We expect the same from people that stay us and could do no less for anyone who hosts us.
"Little things are in the perfection put on, but perfection is anything but a little thing!"
- Jean Jacques Rosseau
This is one of the first quotes Kristin teaches people who are going to work for her on the cruise line.
"Ideas can only be used if they are alive in many minds."
- Alexander von Humboldt
Both of these quotes describe our life philosophy. Sometimes we can be perfectionists, but for us it's always important to exchange ideas in a team.
