About

You’ve landed here because you’re interested in my story.

My name is Phoebe and I’m a 28 year old Australian girl who moved to Germany back in 2011. Since then, I’ve learned German and Spanish and I’ve travelled to more than 30 countries.

I’m a lover of writing & storytelling, photography & editing, English grammar & proofreading, culture & languages, and travelling & warm weather. I’m based in Frankfurt, Germany but I also spend quite a bit of time back home in Australia each year.

I spend half of the year teaching English grammar and helping people to understand what English speaking culture is all about. It’s an interesting job because I work with many different types of people from all over the world and we often have the most intriguing conversations. Every time I have a session with a client or a class, I walk away having learned something new.

The other six months of the year is spent travelling as much as possible. I often like to do courses in foreign countries and I’m always on the lookout for engaging programmes abroad. If possible, I love to combine travelling with overseas English teaching projects.

Kaptain Kenny Travel is my project which I started in November 2015. The majority of the photography you see is done and edited by me. My brother Bellamy, who is based on the Sunshine Coast in QLD Australia, is responsible for some of the beautiful content in the ‘Spain’ and ‘Ireland’ folders. Basically when we travel together, he takes over the photography side of things.

Are you interested in working with me?

      2. Oh wow! I’ll be in Venice at midnight on Monday and I’m staying until Thursday morning. I have been wanting to visit Burano for quite a while, so I’m really looking forward to it.

        What’s your favourite spot in Venice to eat at? Any good recommendations?

        Ciao 🙂

      3. Oh so nice! I wrote a specific post about Venice and The Island tour, you can find it here: http://www.fromdreamtoplan.net/2016/10/10/how-not-to-spend-an-ordinary-day-in-venice/

        I think the best thing to do if you want to taste typical Venetian food is to go for “bacari” is practically a pub crowl but you just do it yourself and in each place you order a glass of wine and a little dish (kind of tapas), it’s a really typical Venetian thing!
