About Me

I am a modern nomad.
I feel alive when I'm travelling. my motto is :
=========="no soul knows in which land it will die"==========

I like to smile, and I like the people who smile. I can talk for hours about different topics when I find an interested talkative person.

I like to meet new people and make friendships. I enjoy learning about different cultures, or getting through the varieties of my own culture.
I don't usually travel with my friends, as I prefer to meet new people .

=============================================================
=============================================================
IF YOU ARE MY HOST:
I can afford a hotel room, but only personal hospitality comforts me.

I wash my dishes, I clean my place, I tidy my bed, or take the blanket back to the closet

I always have a gift for my host.

=============================================================
=============================================================

IF YOU ARE MY GUEST, I'd do whatever it takes to make you feel comfortable, I may give you my bed and sleep on the floor myself if I have to.

I have a car, I will show you around and take you to the near tourist attractions if I have time.

I will invite you to a traditional Egyptian dinner, unless I have a financial crisis.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Travel is more complicated than just touring and sightseeing. as I visit a place for first time , my interest is more into people more than landscapes and historical stones.

CS introduces me to a selected group of good willing people, selected by their trust and hospitality. we may just hangout and talk, sharing our experience, they may open their house and their heart for me, or they blindly trust me enough t sleep in my home , a couple of hours after they first met me.
This proves that good intention and selflessness is the nature of humans.

Interests

Architecture : I know much about Islamic and Arabic architecture, I'm willing to guide my friends and show them around.

Diving : I have a license. I can help you find a trusted dive guide in Hurghada or Dahab.

Arts and antiques from other cultures.

Gardening and indoors plants.

Carpentering and home handicrafts : if you have sme experience and like to help me, I will appreciate your help with decorating my home, as I'm trying to build a built-in furniture in my new apartment in Cairo.

Music, Movies, and Books

there is no such thing called "favorite" books or music or movies, every genre and type has its part on the best list, but

=============================================================
in BOOKS : Reading is my top interest, I spend most of my spare time reading. I like every kind of books. novels are my favorite, but I read political, historical, religious, art, sociology books. as long as it is easy digested and doesn't have many professional terms.
------------------------------------------
A BOOK is the best gift for me.
------------------------------------------

=============================================================
in MUSIC : all kinds of Middle-eastern music. I don't have a favorite genre of western music. I like reggae, pop, lounge, classical, latin.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
A COLLECTION or a good PLAYLIST would be the best gift for me.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
=============================================================
in MOVIES : adventure, thriller, drama, war, comedy, philosophy. Hollywood, German , Polish, French, Iranian movies.

few of my best movie list :
Papillon (1973)
The lives of others (2006)
Fight Club

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
if you give me a good collection of uncommon movies, I will remember you until I die .
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I confronted some rubbers who tried to scar my face. providence saved me.

Teach, Learn, Share

-I can teach Arabic language, help practicing English, guide and describe Islamic architecture in Islamic Cairo, talk about Arabic history and Mediterranean culture.
-I can teach driving, diving.

=============================================================
I learn music, dance, German language, handicraft, and about cultures , societies and travel experience.
=============================================================
I share my food, but never my books :D

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can cook, help cleaning the house, help with the decoration if the host asks.
I can give my host a ride if I have my car with me.

I repeat:

I can afford a hotel room, but only personal hospitality with friendly talk comforts me.

I wash my dishes, I clean my place, I tidy my bed, or take the blanket back to the closet

I always have a gift for my host.
