“The more you travel, the more you realise how little you have seen.”

This quote probably describes best why I travel. It’s an addictive urge to encounter the unexpected and new. For me the journey is the goal. I believe that everything you do effects the next thing you do, directly or indirectly. I love to escape civilisation and tell stories about it.

On 16 April 2015 I left for a long bicycle trip and arrived in Singapore a year later. I made a book and a film about it called 'One Year on a Bike'. Currently I'm on a new solo adventure from Vancouver to Patagonia. Again, on a bicycle. 

When I am not cycling I work as a freelance photographer, filmmaker and designer, usually based in Amsterdam, but more and more I'm anywhere but home. 

Maybe see you somewhere around this beautiful globe.
