About Me

CURRENT MISSION

My (professional) goal/mission is to help people who are in need, in a creative way. My personal mission is to exchange fun, love, ideas and inspiration with likewise minded people. So far I'm succeeding in this pretty well.

ABOUT ME

Oke, at the moment I'm 31 years old. My name is Martijn, but almost everybody calls me Henk. I live together with my love and our little cute son Vincent, in a part of Eindhoven (the Netherlands). I did charity work here, but currently work in a big Philips warehouse where I help to spread light :). I collect books like crazy :). I go to parties, mostly for electronic music, like dubstep or drum 'n bass. I like to create. Electronic music for instance.

This doesn't mean that that's all the music I listen to, au contraire. I listen to old rock (the Doors, Pink Floyd, etc.), jazz, blues, chill-out, psychedelic music (Shpongle!), etc. Nothing I enjoy more then putting on an LP.

I read a lot of non-fictional books about a diversity of subjects. Philosophy, art, the human body, you name it. In my bedroom I'm growing my own spiritual library.

I like laid-back people, who are open minded.

I like to swim (not in a topsport way) and swing my nunchucks.

PHILOSOPHY

The party is as big as your own ambitions.

Love, share, offer, respect.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I have two couches available for hosting.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have couchsurfed via CouchSurfing few times before, which were a very nice experiences. Though within my social circle I've been crashing on people's couches a lot of time :). Even people who live three or four blocks away from me.

I now hosted over fourty (I think) different surfers and have enjoyed each experience a lot! Next to this I met lovely Aija through CS, who is now my love :).

Interests

Music, nature, having fun with friends and other people. I like to dance to music, at a party or just with friends. I enjoy being around people and get inspired by the people I care about. I have a great interest in psychedelics, especially: shrooms, mushrocks, dmt, ayahuyasca, peyote, san pedro & salvia. Books. In this section definitely belong books. I love them.

Music, Movies, and Books

I read a lot of non-fiction books. I'm hungry for knowledge one might say. These include spiritual books, philisophical books, books about historical figures, places on earth, mytholygie, etc. When I enter a bookshop I cannot leave empty handed. According to the amount of books in my house you might say I'm nurturing my bookaddiction pretty well :).

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

- I've stopped a guy from committing suicide
- As a kid I thought I could communicate with frogs
- I slept-in for an exam and had to double that year
- In total I doubled nine times in school
- I'm in deep love
