About Me

CURRENT MISSION

I believe life is so short to be wasted in wrangling , mischief , grudges & selfishness... it's a lot better to enjoy life & help each other make their dream come true, ' United we stand , Divided we fall'.

ABOUT ME

1.90m tall , fair hair , blue eyes , folks chuckle sating me I am the spitting image of Paul NEWMAN !
Just kidding babe , ' Handsome is as handsome does'. I am just an average Algerian citizen of 39 who walked down the aisle a while ago and got blessed with 2 angels , my legal wedded wife is making me a Happy Man . 99.00 % of people around me are adamant I am an outgoing , respectful & gregarious man ...I do count my blessings as I am in the pink of health despite some extra pounds that make me snore so freaking loud ! ...I have travelled to beautiful neigthboring coutries like Tunisia , Morocco , France, Morocco ,Spain ,Turkey , US & wish to visit Argentina , Germany ,Columbia ,Japan and KSA with my dearest ones if I'm spared.

PHILOSOPHY

I am positive everthing happens for a reason , we do not cross somebody's path just like that ,whether you like or dislike somebody ;how to deal with him? Hence , respect , tolerance, sincerity ...are the oprative word to live life peacefully & learn on a dailt basis from the other's culture in the 4 corners of the earth. It is not worth wasting time & energy in wrangling , grudges , selfishness, racism ,wars... in this dog-eat-dog life...rather , communication , helping each other as far as 1 possibly can to make their life easier or take a burden off their shoulder would be a positive behavior & outlook .
With education comes knowledge, with knowledge comes understanding, with understanding comes tolerance and with tolerance comes peace.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Thanks to a good friend at TEFL Institute Chicago IL , I signed up at CS & feel ready to host any serious foreigner stopping by my native coastal city ANNABA. On the other hand , I will be grateful if a good Samaritan would accommodate me again in the US , Japan , South Korea....as I am planning to achieve some training courses in 2013 & 2014 up there..

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I am not a rookie in here as a good Samaritan hosted me in DC in 2012 together with a 1-week unforgettable experience with a Swiss couple in Hammamet/ Tunisia wayback in 2008 or 2009 if memory serves me right .

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I pride myself for the scores of trees I planted in my neighborhood 10 of which survived and provide shade during the scorcher summer days.
Can't believe I was naively crooked during 2 years when I taught English at the biology Institute for 50 bucks a month !
I am thrilled everytime I see my offspring smiling , hugging me ....
