About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Writing, humanitarian aid work, exploring, growing completely out of the system, learning more about lightheartedness, and enjoying life!

ABOUT ME

I am a British/Persian author (24 books: personal development, psychology and self help www.edengalaxy.com), public speaker and humanitarian aid doctor who took part in many missions with doctors without borders (MSF)and the United Nations.

I have moved to North Tenerife (La Laguna ) which is the greener end of this little paradise. My flat is in the heart of the capital and very close walking distance from tram and central bus station. I organise many events, walks and picnics here in Tenerife and help link CSers with other CSers. I lead a charitable initiative to help young travelers who are at cross roads in their lives find a meaningful purpose and direction.

I worked as a medical doctor with international humanitarian organisations around the world (MSF, and UN) for a decade, the UK national health service and then independently as a coach, public speaker, and author. I moved to Tenerife which is a little paradise just more than 7 years ago. I am a slow nomad and travel part of the year slowly to other locations to experience life as a local elsewhere as well.

PHILOSOPHY

humanitarian, healthy, green,

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I invite interesting people to come over and show them around a little bit. I organise many picnics and hiking trips in Tenerife almost every week. Hopefully this would be an opportunity for some cultural/lingual/cooking exchanges, and spending a few hours together, not to be used solely as a B&B!!!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

The vast majority of CS people I met were wonderful. I have met many good and long term friends, and I am grateful to the experience. There are some rather very few professional parasites also that infest this great initiative to use others, but once u get a bit more experienced u learn how to identify and avoid them :) those few come to your house to sleep, eat, waste as much time as they can pestering around and have no plans for their journeys other than killing hours and days and preying on others! Nothing is ever perfect, but this initiative is a fantastic one, and most people are interesting and fun. Thanks very much CS team :)
