My name is Hendric, I like Potatoes and Pohtecktoes is a play on my mandarin name.
Life is too short not to live in the now and travel in the moment. Hopefully this space will inspire others to do the same!
It’s difficult to list the things that interest me (because almost everything does)… but lately I’ve enjoyed being a traveller, an occasional dancer, outdoor enthusiast, aspiring entrepreneur and creative.

In 2013, I left my job and decided to travel the World. I realized that after more than two decades on this planet, the only thing that gets me really excited are new experiences and the outdoors (ok there’s a couple more but some are… NSFW). Since traveling is the best way for new experiences, I figured the best way is to get out of my 9-5 job and work for myself, traveling as much in-between.
So far I’ve been pretty fortunate because I’ve somehow managed to make this work without breaking the bank through a mixture of freelance media work (graphic/web design + social media), cheap flight deals, travel contests and travel sponsorships.
So if you like what I do here with my writing, GoPro videos, photography and design, don’t hesitate to drop me a mail of encouragement or work with me. Even following me on Instagram/Facebook/Twitter or subscribing to the site will help!
