About Me

Hi, my name is Frank! I live together with my girlfriend Laura in The Hague, and we like to meet people through Couchsurfing.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Getting new perspectives and connecting with people!


I worked several years in journalism. My current job is in communications. In my free time I do sports (running, cycling and table tennis), hang out with people or go on a trip. Fun fact: I collect newspapers from countries I visit.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Cycling from the Netherlands to Tarifa, Spain

Teach, Learn, Share

We can share food, drinks, stories and some knowledge about the Netherlands and Colombia and its history, culture, politics, economy and media. If you want to go the beach, the Dutch parliament or other places in The Hague, we'd be happy to join or show you around.

Teach us anything, we are open to learn!

What I Can Share with Hosts
