About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Chasing a never ending bucket list, oh and I cut people for a living.

ABOUT ME

Ahmed Khalil | Create Your Badge

PHILOSOPHY

People don't take trips, trips take people.
"Kiss slowly, laugh insanely, live truly, and forgive quickly"
"Life is a bitch, make her your bitch"
"Live as if you were to die tomorrow, learn as if you were to live forever"
"To be old and wise you have to be young and foolish first"
"Life is too short to wait to safely remove the USB stick"
"there is no elevator to success, u'll have to take the stairs"
"Life is a game but its not fair,play by ur own rules"
"what people think of you is none of your business"
"you are not defeated when u lose,you are defeated when u stop fighting"
"things u own end up owning u"
"Nothing is irreplacable.A habit isn't a need"
-Travelling isn't only for fun. You realize how unimportant you are, life doesn't stop if you are gone, your way of life isn't necessarily right or standard, happy people exist yet they have nothing of what you have and take for granted. You have the chance to see new places, new cultures, new ways of living that feeds your sense of wonder. You learn to let go when you have to say goodbye to your loved ones and cherish every moment you spend with them. You learn patience. You restore your faith in humanity when you experience help from strangers, even a friendly chat, a cigarette, a ride, directions or offers of food. You start to enjoy your own company. You get to spend time with yourself on the cross roads and airport terminals in the middle of your trip just to realize who you are, what makes you happy and decide to do more of it and what doesn't and you stop doing it. You learn that living in one place for the rest of your life is mere stupid and such a waste of an already short life. You go beyond your comfort zone just to expand it and search for a new adventure. You break the mold you have been put into for your whole life and stop judging people for being different. You trust your ability to "get there" no matter what obstacles you run into and enjoy your moments of "being there". The most important thing, you begin to value what it feels like to be home by having the chance to miss it. Travel more while you can. There's nothing worth spending money on more than travel.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can share all my knowledge with people though I don't have a much. I can teach Arabic in exchange of any other language, prefreably German or Spanish but any language would be appreciated. Cooking and photography are my interests too. I know a lot about Egyptian History and Islam and the arabian culture in general and i'd like to share that with whom is interested. I travelled solo to many awesome places and I'd love to share my experience in person as I'm too lazy to start a blog :)
