About Me

I would say that I'm an open-minded, optimist, hard worker and friendly guy. I like to travel and meet new people. Having long conversations about everything and having fun during holidays and weekends.

The world is so big and full of treasures and stories. I believe that the more you travel and interact with new cultures, the more lives you add to yourself.

Whoever you're, I'll always be happy to host you if I've the chance to do. We can share cultures and discuss everything going on around the world whether we have enough knowledge about it or not :D
I also like to hang out with people whenever I'm free, specially on my own city to get the feeling of a tourist. I also like almost all different kinds of movies and series beside being a big fan of football. So, we can watch a movie or a game together if you're also a fan.

Life is always a mix of hard and good times. I try to enjoy both as much as i can. We only live once.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

First time I used Couchsurfing I was in a real need for a free easy accommodation in London, a friend told me about it. I started sending very short requests without even reading the whole profile of the hosts! -And yes I'm not afraid or ashamed to tell such an experience-. An English man accepted my poor request and offered my a private room -you'll find him in my references-. I stayed with him and left without even writing him a request despite that I was really thankful, but I just didn't know how couchsurfing works and that I should write a reference after my stay. After that, I start to see the real beauty in couchsurfing. I used it to meet locals in my travels, I hosted some nice people as well and interacted with them.
I needed to tell this story to mention how much I appreciate this English guy's help in the very beginning, without him I think I'd never have had all those experiences here on couchsurfing.

I want to make full use of my travels by knowing people from the places I visit, interact with them, hear from them, see how they live and know more about their cultures. I think this is the most important thing we get from travelling, not the photos and checking in at famous places.

Music, Movies, and Books

Maybe I watch less movies but generally I like the movies directed by Christopher Nolan. I also like Christian Bale's movies. I like philosophical, comedy, action and dramatic films.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can share cultures, telling you how people live in those countries I've lived in. I can also tell you about beautiful places in Egypt which tourists don't give much attention. We can share music, or national dances from our countries.

What I Can Share with Hosts

We can cook together, I believe it's very nice to try new food. We can also hang out together, party, share experiences and stories.
Usually I can't offer food to guests. You can bring your food if you want.
