Marten at Akka

I am a broadly interested guy from the Netherlands who enjoys: trekking, white water kayaking, snowboarding, reading, taking fancy pictures and travelling in general. Besides having lived all over the Netherlands I have lived in Vancouver, Kristiansand, Milan, Houston, Mumbai and Munich totalling about 6 years. I’m currently adventuring into the world on a bicycle!
