About Me


Clear up my long lasted autobiography book.


I was born into a nomadic wayfarer family. I am a compeletely easy going and relaxed person, I can try nearly everything in life. I am truly fond of meeting people with a sincere spirit of sharing life experiences.


- Dream as if you live forever, live as if you die tomorrow!

- Better to light a candle than to curse the darkness.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


Hospitality naturally is part of the culture I grew up. In fact, it is a matter of survival for the nomads. Guests who are never known to us before are named 'Gashai-Rebi' which literally means 'A Guest from God'. How a big blessing it would be then for a believer to host a guest from God?! You can simply imagine it.

It is interesting, it opens a wide door to link yourself up with many pure and important souls.


These days my entire interest is caught between reading and writing.

Music, Movies & Books

I love all kind of slow music. And I prefer Documentary films and books.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

In Eritrea, I've survived in Denakil area which gets as hot as +50 ‘C!! Now in Norway, you know it how cold it gets!! I narrowly scaped death four times at least that I clearly remember.

Teach, Learn, Share

I may teach how to cook some traditional food my people eat; the problem is we wouldnt have the ingredients. In case the interest is there I can teach relaxing reflexology and massage.
