About Me


To get some sleep some time so that I can party it up again.


I am interested in everything, I know that life is the best education, but love to help in any way or direction and I hate my cell phone with a passion, maybe it is because I have had the same one for 7 years my phone is as old as my dog!...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I like to host and to surf... I have in life and now love that this site is now in my life.


I have hosted before with my house mates, Asli and Cameron. And surf all the time, every month I will travel a bit wherever I am and couch surf. Even in the same city, amazing way to meet people and give to their lives.

Music, Movies, and Books

Arabic Beats mixed CD my friend found for £3. Reading a book by orhan pamuk. As for movies: the best thing I have seen recently was an exhibition piece by Miquel Barceló.
Both of these clips show how different emotions are expressed but still don't quite capture how the original film effects you:

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

To stoke my dog. She is a beautiful Springer Spaniel/Collie who is so wise and is always the one I go to when I need comfort. Seriously, I even wrote a paper for my GCSE English about how she is my rock. Amazingly this is still the case.

Teach, Learn, Share


On this subject I thought I might say something about my experience of FREE Universities. Well of course the first thing that is important is access to books. For this reason I have fallen head over heals in love with the practise of leaving books around as presents that you have finished. So many people I know think it is treason to write in a book, that a book is a sacred thing. This is probably true is that they know the work that goes into such things, the sweat blood and tiers. But I think of book more as a living entity. I use them as note books, carry them around as part of my life. I am reading it and therefore it will effect my thoughts, why not my days. This does not mean (and I am sorry Asli) that I don't feel bad when I write in someone else's pride and joy!

So I think that anything that works to bring books to everyone; as a bring and share or feel free to donate and take; is so so great.

So education for more more more and book free free free I also believe so so strongly that food has power. And I don't just mean politically how it is used today to control and like knowledge abused to oppress and keep oblivious. But as a way to communicate.

Free free free food, free it from its prison and use it to spread knowledge.

One example which maybe easily accessed by most people is the work of Jamie Oliver. How following what feels right sparks magic, as he said.
