About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To not be tempted to settle down

ABOUT ME

I have travelled quite a bit and know enough to always want to know more about everything. Very interested in people and countries. I enjoy a good conversation/debate with people from different parts of the world and getting their point of view. I am a bit political (especially in my writing) Quite left-wing in my beliefs. Generally happy, positive person.

I like my guests to feel very relaxed in my house.

I've lived in Rabat for over six years, so I know how the city works and can help you navigate and get the best from your stay in the city.
Rabat doesn't offer much for the tourist after one day, but it's a great place to chill on your way to somewhere else.

Ah! I'm struggling now. You'll be better off reading the surfer references...

PHILOSOPHY

Do whatever you want, but don't hurt anyone.
A personal quotes: 'A million people can be wrong'.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I host people and I LOVE it! Its great to learn about their lives, countries and points of view. I get them to sign my toilet door, which has quite a few signatures on it now from people all over the world.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Hosted over 40 people and enjoyed every single minute of everyone's stay. As a result, I have made some great friends from different parts of the world. I used to host in the UK, but now I have an apartment on the ocean front in Rabat, Morocco.

Interests

Cinema, Politics, writing, News, Anything South American/Spanish or to do with Syria. I love cooking and driving.

Teach, Learn, Share

I am very good at English (being a writer) so could give you a help in that field. I know a fair bit about Rabat and how to not get ripped off.

I am always up for learning bits of languages and facts about countries and the people in them.
