About us

Meet the Hollapinos

Hi! We are Mark, Chared and Quint Verschuur. Mark is born and raised in the Netherlands (Holland), Chared in the Philippines and Quint is the beautiful mix of both. Together we are the Hollapinos. We are interested in making a positive impact on our surroundings. We want to leave behind a beautiful world for our little boy after all. So we try to embrace sustainability in one of the activities we love doing together, traveling.

We have been traveling as a couple since 2005. Ten years after, we discovered the benefits of ultralight travel. We explored Peru for 3 weeks carrying packs of under 30 liter. And since 2018, even with a baby in tow, we have kept the size and weight of our packs the same.

With this blog, we want to share our journey to traveling ultralight and sustainably as a family. Feel free to contact us with tips, if you’re inspired by our stories, if you would like to work together or just simply if you want to say ‘Hi!’.
