Frans Buijze
Born a Dutchman, Frans Buijze started his career in trading although he favored history and art. In the mid-1990s, he decided to follow his heart. He started his business, “Travel & Training,” and began developing and leading programs for Road Scholar. Since Road Scholar participants travel the world, Frans sees them as ambassadors who can bring people together by learning about cultures and traditions. He very much enjoys sharing the liberal and social way of living in the Netherlands by giving lectures on the Dutch opinion on drugs, euthanasia, politics and water management. In 2009, Frans made a big step and moved from the Netherlands to Hungary. He now lives in Budapest, a city he has started to love.
