Just heads up for y'all CS to know about me more ๐Ÿ™‚

Am not your typical traditional omani who would you expect to wear certain traditional clothes all the time or listen only to omani music or Arab music ๐Ÿ™ƒ Although we have a lot of omanis like that but am quite not the same I would say as I follow different lifestyle and habits mabye than others in terms of mindset , clothes style , eating habits and lot more ๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ™๐Ÿค˜

So please don't be suprised or shocked or ask me why I am not wearing traditional clothes or other questions ๐Ÿ˜ฎโ€๐Ÿ’จ๐Ÿซค

It just my personal preferences like many omanis here whom are like me and that don't make us less omani nor less knowledgeable about our country.

I love my country and my city ๐Ÿ‡ด๐Ÿ‡ฒโฃ๏ธ
but I prefer to be different and have different mindest , lifestyle and way of life than others but I can for sure tell you more about oman and have a lot of useful informations about our culture, traditions , food , history , geography and many more ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ™Œ

so feel free to ask anything ๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™‚๏ธ

Useful Tips and Hints :

- for some reason i thought i needed to put this statement clearly .For the solo girls who are travelers coming to Oman , don't be surprised to get a lot of messages and attention from males CS here in oman like in any countries in the world that probably you traveled, There will be unfortunately some annoying perverts and hungry shit heads here that give bad impressions and representation for CS experience in oman ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™‚๏ธ .

Please don't mix up ๐Ÿ™…โ€โ™‚๏ธ those kinds of people with other Male CS who are actully interested in your culture ,languages, travels and stories when they messege you or show interest in your culture or CS experiences .

Not every male CS in this platform are looking for a romantic gate away with y'all or other stuffs ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜ฎโ€๐Ÿ’จ . I understand there is a lot of jerks you come across as girls in your travels but please stop assuming or putting other Good Male CS in the same category as those perverts .๐Ÿ™ƒ

- A quick tip for all CS on how to choice proprely and wisely , Rather than putting your self in public trips and expecting you gonna meet quality people . Before that , Go to the host section in CS and use filtering (depending on what you filter out and what you want ) to find hosts whom have solid profiles and start to choice depending on your interests and what are you looking for in a host and more importantly their home location in the city ( Very Important ! )
After you do that and you decide what you want or looking for , it's up to you if you wanna put yourself in public trips :)

Be careful and invest in reading each one profiles from references of what people are saying about them, description of themselves, countries they traveled, interests, what they like to do, etc.. rather than just accepting anyone hosting cause they "seem to have " a good profile , pics or good reviews and then you get surprised and judge the whole country or Males CS in Oman based on your bad choice of choosing a bad CS here. Like in every country in the world you will face perverts and weridos in CS.

- A big tip for all CS, make sure to choice a host that his/her place are not far from the city center or place of attractions and make sure when you messege them to ask them about their location or precisely where is it as location in the this city is very very important so that you will be accessible to every toursitc attractions and easily to grab a taxi or bus or even sometimes walk distance. Also, make sure it's close to restaurants, cafes , supermarkets, mall , beach, etc.. or you can rent a car here and travel easily without an issue as petrol price here is cheap compared to the world prices :)

- Also, this Tip is for the females who are looking only for female hosts .Don't be surprised if you didn't find any local women in oman or local women in gulf region using CS or hosting or doing any activites , its nearly very rare to interact with them here or be able to meet them. And if you found one , consider yourself really really lucky and blessed ๐Ÿ˜‡..

However , there are other places , activites and events that you could meet local women as am just giving you a head up so you wouldnt be shocked compared with other cultures and countries around the world where you could easily meet local women and interact with them and understand the culture easier for you as a female traveler . So if you are a female travelers looking for a local female host so you can get the experience from them , better find an female expat or forginers which you can find plenty here in CS in oman and the gulf region .

- For anybody who want to visit Oman, i recommend to visit it between october till march as its the best season and its very beautiful especially on december and january

- Try to avoid visiting oman from End of May till End of September in oman as its the hottest months and temperature goes to 45C and above! ...YES 45C and even 50C !
But if your a person who can handle the weather and hot humidity
Then be my Guest :)

But i prefer to visit it after October , as we have very nice weather in our winter time.
Oman winter is very cozy , warm , cloudy
Its not hot nor cold
The temperature can go down between 30Cto 20C and it can go low to 19C im some places.

The temperature in mountains side in the winter time for those who want to camp as we are very famous in oman for camping activites, it can go 10C to below zero sometimes even in the deserts too

- in case you want to still visit oman on summer time , i would recommend only to go to the south which is salalah city between end of July till end of September, is a good time salalah as the weather is completely opposite than other cities and most of the towns in oman. The weather is incredible cloudy, foggy and could be rainy sometimes.

- In oman there is many activites to do for example,
Scuba diving , camping, jetsking
Snokrling, Karting, Boat trips, and many many more actually!

- Whatsapp calls and videos here don't work people, so please to make it work activate your VPN!!!

I would suggest using zoom or Google meet or Imo which better for free calls and videos too that's totally popular and works all around. If you dont know it, you can always Google it :)....its fantastic and accurate for free calls..

- we have public transportation like buses but there not well advertised or promoted . However the buses are cheap and useful and has wifi in it . They travel around Muscat and outside of muscat in specifc cities around . Unfortunately the bus system schedule isn't the best when it comes to clear schedule or how to buy but hit me up and I will try to help you with it :)

- there are a lot of app for taxi here and the most famous one is Otaxi as its the cheapest , most convenient and reliable in all oman .

Why Iโ€™m on Couchsurfing

I want to get to know people from all around the world and make friends with them and learn there culture and traditions and of course learn a bit of languages from each person
and have the chance to host some of them here with me.

I always try to be postive no matter where I am , so I will appreciate some positivity from anyone that I meet up as I am sure nobody loves a negative person ;)

Music, Movies, and Books

i don't think i have a favorite genre that i listen to a lot as i listen to many genres everyday such as Rnb , Hip hop , Rock , Jazz, Korean and Japanese Rnb , Country Music etcc.. even sometimes i will just listen to some piano melodies or guitar melodies as they are my fav instruments to listen to .

since i am into Music production , i tend to get my hands on many different genres around the world but i guess if i have to choice one genre to listen to forever that would be Rnb for sure !

I like Action, Fighting/ Martial arts , Comedy , Adventure , Horror and Sci-Fi movies from Al Pacino , Robert Di nero , Denzel Washington , Jamie foxx , Vin Desil , Johnny Depp ,Morgan Freeman, Will Smith ,
Joaquin Phoenix, Christian Bale , Michael B Jordan ,Keanu Reeves, Brat Bitt and the list goes on ...

but i guess am into movies more that has certain mystery , crime, thriller or psychological thriller and intelligence or puzzle solving such as inception , The Matrix , Interstellar, Sherlock Holmes, Get Out , Nope , Collateral , Deja Vu , Fight club etc.... Also am big on documentaries to watch more than movies !

I don't read books a lot as am not a reader at all . I like Podcasts more and i do Prefer Video podcast rather than Audio sometimes as am a visual person . however , i can read when it comes to an interesting book that am passionate about or i do follow the author for long time in social media such as Jordan Peterson , Gary vee , Robert Greene , jason capital , ahmed alshugairi etcc... so if you have any interesting book with similar things i mentioned, please do share with me๐Ÿ˜€.

One Amazing Thing Iโ€™ve Done

I spend the most amazing travels in my life in Europe and East Asia where i visited a lot of places and made me travel a lot too for instance , When i was in Netherlands I once took a train from Amsterdam and i slept in the train suddenly and i end up in the borders of last station to Belgium ( I will tell the story in person better to understand it fully if you would like ) ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

i have many crazy and interesting stories along my travels but am sure you have more stories to share too and i would be happy to hear it :)

Teach, Learn, Share

well i can give you a proper introduction about my country and our culture from history , geography , food etc..

also i can teach a bit about video editing and contents . since i do music , i can give you a glimpse about my music production in case you're interested and want to learn as i use Logic Pro X mostly .

i like to talk about Entrepreneurships and Business from all kind of fields and industry but i tend to talk about social media and contents as i have a bit experience in it .

I would be glad to share some of my arabic language and even english language as i am fluent in both . am a moderate speaker in italian and beginner in korean although i didn't practice for so long but will be happy to assist if you're leaning them as i studied the cultures too and visited the countries multiple of times . Am studying Japanese and Spanish at the moment and will be glad to learn from anyone whom speak it .

i will be happy if you share with me about your languages , culture , traditions and anything that can be possible to share as am student in life and i like to learn and listen constantly from anyone i met or host .

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can gladly offer trips and rides in my city hometown and introduce you the best places to eat, drink, shop and sightseeing and you will have fun surely๐ŸŽŠ๐ŸŽ‰ .

If you are a nature or wild or beach or camping adventurous person , i would be happy to show all that sides of oman .

just to be honest here and completely starlight forward , i can take you all over muscat and plan some amazing trips and sightseeing but atleast what i can expect from you is to share the petrol money with me .

also i can invite once for food pay for it but that doesn't mean i will keep inviting ! . please make sure to pay for your own food and drinks as i expect that from you .

If we agree on that then, welcome to an awesome adventure my friend :)
