About Me

Hey! I'm Amr from Cairo Egypt and I'm not a terrorist! I'm living and working in Auckland right now. I'm also a musician, I love food, cultures and humor so much. I'm a third culture kid, as I was made in Cairo, raised in Saudi Arabia, assembled in Poland and sold to New Zealand, I don't really find myself belonging to a specific culture, but I love to meet people from different places and learn more about their cultures. So if you come to Akl and stumble upon my profile, send me a message or something and we could go for a drink! Cheers ;-)

UPDATE!

Graduated and moved to Auckland!

PHILOSOPHY

What goes around comes around.
Everything happens for a reason.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

For the awesome experience! I've been a member since I can remember and had awesome times with every single person I've met through CS. Its a great way to see the world through different eyes.

Interests

Music is my passion. I played the drums in a rock band in warsaw and I also play a couple of other instruments.
I enjoy other sorts of activities like sightseeing, cycling, cooking, and traveling.

Music, Movies, and Books

I enjoy dry humor and sarcasm a lot so any movie with that would be great!
I love extremes and I appreciate all kinds of music because I know as a musician that music isn't an easy thing to create and it takes lots of dedication, devotion and talent.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Finding myself in the middle of a revolution in Egypt.
Took a piss in Tahrir square while being shot with gas bombs.
Traded my Egyptian flag for two guitar picks from guns and roses.
Travelled to Bahrain with 1 Saudi Riyal only which is approximately $0.27 USD and made it!

Teach, Learn, Share
