YOU MAY KNOW HENK FROM
From a very young age Henk dreamt of discovering the world, but despite his hunger for travel, his ambitions were stifled by fear.
He told himself he was too young, too skinny, and too inexperienced. But in 2011 he decided to just do it.
In the years that followed, he hitchhiked across two continents, walked from England to Rome, and cycled from the Netherlands to Istanbul. He slept in caves, was chased by feral dogs, and earned money as a nude model.
His fears turned out to be completely unjustified, and Henk decided to embark on even greater adventures.
He paddled the entire Mississippi River in a boat, and walked 6000 km through Europe and the Middle-East, completely without money.
By leaving himself no way out he forced himself to keep moving forward. And despite hunger, thirst, and blisters, he achieved his goal.
Henk is convinced that pushing our boundaries makes us grow in unimaginable ways, and he now travels the world encouraging people to say YES! more.
