About Me

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

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I grew up on a farm in the very “far” east of The Netherlands and since I realize there is more to explore, I try to go out of my bubble and get new perspectives.


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.

Music, Movies, and Books

Indie, reggaeton, Ozark (I'm a fan of Jason Bateman) and non-fiction books

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Cycling from The Netherlands to Tarifa, Spain

Teach, Learn, Share

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

Teach me anything, I'm open to learn.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Some positivity!
