Meeting new people and knowing about their culture and language is a pleasure to me.
I love anything helping me improve my English and social affairs.

Live in the present, the past is gone, the future is fade; love the moment.
Be happy and enjoy your life.
Follow these three golden principles: Good Thought, Good Words, Good Deed.
There's one path in life, the path is Honesty.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I mostly host travelers from all around the world thanks to Couch Surfing.
I frequently send invitation to whom I'm really interested in after reading their profiles.
Hosting and showing people around is what I do the most.


It has been a long time now. I love CS.
I've enjoyed hosting travelers and I've learned so many interesting things through interacting with people from all over the world.

Persian Writers: Jalal-al-e-Ahmad and Sadegh Hedayat.
I love Woody Allan's movies.
I listen to almost all kind of music esp. Iranian folk, traditional Iranian music (avaaz), and new age.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Beautiful nature of North of Iran popped my eyes.
The beautiful beaches of Persian Gulf are still the best beaches I've ever been to.
Skiing on the heights of Zagros Mountains in Central Iran has always been fun.
Teaching and tour guiding are the most amazing of all I've been doing since I was 14.

Teach, Learn, Share

I teach English and couchsurfing is a great chance to help me improve my English.
I can learn about different people and their culture fast and easily. All thanks to CS!
I love sharing my time with people listening to them and talking with them finding out new things to add up to my life.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can cook the food from my town.
I also know about history of Iran, so I can share my information.
I'm clean and I follow house rules; don't be afraid to ask me to help you with the housework.
I can teach you Persian, too.
