About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To be happy, content, and enjoy the moment

ABOUT ME

I am a non-conformist and my passion in life is travel and exploring new places. Everything I own fits in a bag and I am always ready for an adventure, especially if it involves a motorcycle. In my experiences it is the people that make places special and CS facilitates this interaction. If you want to know more send me a message!

PHILOSOPHY

Travel. Study. Learn.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I have surfed my way through Asia and tried to return the favor by hosting as many people as I could in Syria. Now, I am able to host in Cairo so yalla!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Nothing but great meetings and encounters with people from all around the world.

Interests

I am interested in going to at least every continent if not every country in the world. Especially the ones you would have trouble finding on a map like Azerbaijan, Kyrgyzstan, and Gagon or ones you might have trouble pronouncing like Côte d'Ivoire. Also on my list, are countries or areas not normally on someones itinerary like Burkina Faso in Africa.

I am specifically interested in traveling and exploring the world on two wheels.

Music, Movies & Books

I am an active learner€ and student of life. I learn from life experiences and enjoy reading about history, Islam, and politics of the Middle East.

I like any movie that makes you think which are usually documentaries but I do enjoy the occasional Hollywood blockbuster.

As far as music goes, I love Reggae and Reggaeton.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

- I spent an entire night climbing an active volcano on the Indonesian island of Sumatra in order to see the sun rise from the summit. There was my Indonesian friend and a random European guy wearing a suit which made the experience that much more surreal. The picture on my profile is at the summit watching the sun rise.

- Exploring Vietnam with my father and accomplishing a lifetime goal of meeting and talking to Montayards in remote villages.

-Spending weeks in Mongolia on horseback with a Mongolian and a friend I met on the way there on the Trans-Siberian Express.

-Getting lost on a dirt-bike in Cambodia and having to pay Vietnamese man to help me reach the nearest town.

- Spent time on the Amazon River sleeping on a house boat and camping in the jungle on hammocks with a good friend.

-The amazing people I have met along way in my original one month now life time adventure.

Teach, Learn, Share
