About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Exploring as much as I can from Europe in 6 days: Done :), Current Mission: learn more about different Cultures

ABOUT ME

I adore swimming and cycling, I like reading some history books I dream of visiting Paris. I love my Work to the Max I only hate that it's 40km away from my home and I have to drive 80km/day but other than that I love what i'm doing. I work for international Company in which we work with different cultures but unfortunately I didnt have a chance to meet them most of the time we work remotly together and so I want to know different cultures by direct face to face interaction.

In My first trip outside Egypt I went to Europe I started with Budapest and Vienna it was very nice experince, I met people from all over the world, I met people from Germany, UK,Spain, France, Greece, China, India, Russia, Colombia,Czech Repulic and every one from them has he is own culture and I was amazed from this different diversity, as it added too much to my experience

PHILOSOPHY

This field i'll leave it for people to fill about me :)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

If you decided to come to Egypt one day and need someone to show you around in Cairo and Giza I'll be there for you. And If you decided to vist another place and need some company I might be available for you but just tell me before you come with reasonable time.

I'm really sorry guys but I can't surf anyone over here yet as I dont have place :( in the moment But I'm working on perparing good place and I hope it will be ready when needed.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

None yet :(

Interests

I love swimming, I used to swim since I was 5 years old or so I stopped for sometime due to study but really I cant prevent myself when I see either the pool or the sea whatever the weather condition is :), I'm a memeber in a group of cyclers we usually go cycling every Friday morning usually we explore some historical places in Cairo by bike onetime we took a boat in the river nile in this day the sun was shining for only one hour which we were in the boat :) and we enjoyed cycling back home in wonderfull raining weather ,I started to acuire new habit of reading as I wasn't used to do so, I belive that history is being written in Egypt right now and I started to read more about our history to avoid falling in the same pervious mistakes my ancestors fall in.

Music, Movies & Books

I love confessions of shopaholic movie it's one of my favorites also cheaper by dozen , I love NCIS, Friends. In general I love romance movies that have some comdey included.
Action movies are only nice.
Terror movies :) :) I can watch them in the morning but not just before sleeping :), I dont like having nightmares

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Climbing 2200m mountain in Sinai Peninsula, Egypt , It's the second highest one in Egypt, it's away from Cairo for about 700KMs and we left from Cairo at 3pm, arrived about 12am in the city where the mountain is located, then we started to walk up in the mountain, it was really tiring experince, we climbed for about 4 hours and when we finally reach the top it was very cold :), we waited for the sunrise for about an hour, the moment the in which we saw the first light from the sun over the mountian was really priceless and worth the effort.

In my trip to Budapest, they have amazing place that contains thermal baths. I was with some crazy spanish people :) and we have tons of fun moving from very hot water to very cold one the most one was from the suna from 70C to 18C pool :) this really hurts but feels great :)
