In 2012, we met on a train between Cologne and Hamburg, Germany.
Kristin Kong (37) was born in the north of Germany and Phil Kong (32) was born in Long Island, New York. We both grew up on the coast; two shores that are very similar and yet are on two different continents. In 2016 we got married, and in 2018 our family got a little bit bigger with the arrival of our little girl Ilsa. Torn between both countries we’ve decided to create our life together on both continents.
Growing up as camper kids and exploring nature with our respective families, we both held onto the dream of traveling. That part got a really raw deal in our daily lives in the last few years so we decided to make a change. That was when we had the idea to give van-life a try.

We converted a Mercedes Sprinter! We have a portable toilet & a kitchen. No extendable walls. fully off grid. Solar Shower is outdoors.
A lovely sweet family for sure. Their little daughter is precious. Learned so much about where they live. They are certainly welcome to visit with us again!
Unfortunately I was out of town when Thevankongs stayed at Big Daddy's. I hope they will stop by again in the future, would love to meet them.
