About Me

CURRENT MISSION

LIVE!

ABOUT ME

I can talk about myself all day, but you will never know me unless you meet me. I like to think that I am a nice , calm, pretty laid back and down to earth. I don't like snobby or fake people. I am pretty simple but I enjoy being adventurous, and sometimes stupid :D It is said that as people grow older they don't grow wiser but there is less stupid things to be done. Most of all I enjoy a good laugh.

PHILOSOPHY

Work Hard and play hard :)
"Be the change you want to see in the world" Ghandi

"...one of the strongest motives that lead men to art and science is escape from everyday life with its painful crudity and hopeless dreariness, from the fetters of one's own ever-shifting desires. A finely tempered nature longs to escape from the personal life into the world of objective perception and thought.''

Albert Einstein

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I post to groups, go to meetings, host people as much as I can. I like to meet people in general no matter what they do or where they are from. I've grown to hate the barriers that people place between one another.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've had many hosting experiences throughout my life, since my family has always been a very welcoming Egyptian family abiding with the host welcoming traditions of Egyptians, but I only had a few experiences through CouchSurfing. I am looking forward for more.

Interests

Adventurous sports. I did Surfing, Sailing, Skiing, Parachuting, Rowing, Kung fu, basketball and handball.
I like meeting new people and getting into intellectual cross cultural discussions. I appreciate having friends from all around the world. I love to hear about their crazy stories and their everyday stories similarly. I enjoy seeing the differences and similarities of people and have a lot appreciation for both.

Music, Movies & Books

I would love to wake up one day to know there is not a pint of hate on this planet. Impossible?
