HELLO, I’M MARTIJN (HAARLEM)
I live in Garenkokerskwartier.
I work in Amsterdam (sometimes Haarlem).
I hang out in
Vijfhoek, Station neighborhood, Gouden Straatjes.
Born in Colombia, raised and educated in Holland and Spain, very much in love with Haarlem for the past 12 years. Forget Amsterdam, ok? Just kidding, please visit our beautiful capital, but if you wish to experience something special, do visit the Dutch medieval pearl next to the beach. You'll feel its rich history wandering around the fairytale centre no matter what season. Haarlem holds many Dutch records with the oldest museum, first Dutch railway station, best shopping center and so on. Apart from my passion for Haarlem I know the history of Holland and Dutch very well. Moreover I know what is going on today. I am a frequent visitor of the local restaurants, bars, and areas that are not known by everybody, as well as the more lively beach in the summer and the elegant old city parks where you sometimes can dream away all alone. So may I welcome you in Haarlem?
