Hey friends! I’m Phoebe.

I’m actually Australian born but since 2011 I’ve been based in Frankfurt and since 2013 I’ve had an Irish passport.

In the last seven years in Germany, I have: worked at the Australian Consulate, taught English, given cultural training at German companies, done voice acting for movies, visited German schools to promote Australia, subtitled English scenes in a major upcoming film, sold travel photography, written over 130 travel articles on this website and for other online publications, taught English in Spain, Vietnam and Ireland and finally…. I started Kaptain Kenny at the beginning of 2016.

Why did I start Kaptain Kenny?

It began when I really started living in Europe, realising what it means to be able to travel anywhere within virtually an hour. And that’s why I spend six months of the year travelling, writing and taking photos for you.

Kaptain Kenny embodies the idea that the world is your oyster. I entice people with trips to seemingly unreachable destinations – but then I inspire them to explore the beauty that’s right in their backyard. I can do that because I see Europe and the world through the eyes of a foreigner.


Since moving to Germany, I’ve learned German and Spanish and I’ve travelled to 38 countries.  I’m a lover of travel writing & storytelling, photography, culture and languages.

        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 🙂

        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!
