About Me

CURRENT MISSION

ABOUT ME

Since long time I've been working for different NGOs in the field of youth and intercultural dialogue in the Mediterranean. I'm esspecially interested in the Arab World and want to continue my activities in this region, but for a moment I'm stuck in Europe because of my work and lack of oppotrunities in my beloved region. I enjoy the cultural diversity in the world and try to promote it though my activities. I hate being alone and like meeting new people.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

A friend of mine persuaded me to participate. I started to use CS during my Erasmus in France, because it was a great opportunity to discover this country and I continue until now.

I mainly surfed, because in the last years I I traveled a lot. Now, because of health reasons I cannot travel that much any more, so it's time to host

One Amazing Thing I've Done

When I ask myself that are the most amazning places I've seen 3 countries come into my mind: Yemen, Algeria and Syria before the the war. Ammazing cultures, still not destroyed by the invasion of tourists. Yemen, the whole country in an open-air museum, and being there is like traveling into the past. Algeria - wanderfoul people and the best hospitality I experienced in my life. Syria - amazing people, always smiling ready to help and happy to speak with foreigners - hopefully they will have peace again soon!

Teach, Learn, Share

I always like to share traveling experiences and meet people who inspire me to visit new countries

What I Can Share With Hosts

Brussels is not my favorite place in the world, I cannot tell I am integrated. I've been trying to integrate, but it is not my mentality. I am not fascinated by Brussels main tourist attractions, so do not expect to go with me to Grande Place. I can make you discover some of my favorite places in this city Turkish and Moroccan neighborhoods and Matongé - Congolese neighborhood. There are also plenty of interesting laces to see from the Belle Époque.
