Good day from Gasser
My name is Gasser, I was born at 31st October 1984, I'm from Elephantine Island – Aswan – Egypt – The Nubia.
I was born and lived in Elephantine island, I like the life of Nubian village so much.
My study was Institute of tourism and hotels 2005, since I finished my study I worked in tourism , as Restaurant Captain, Receptionist, Masseur, Dahabeya Nile cruise manager and now ticketing airlines at Tourism agency.
I like meeting people from other cultures so much, to change our life experience
Massage was not just a job for me, I can say it was some thing important in my life, I like giving massage so much, I enjoy giving relax and comfort to a body which tired from the hard life, many people don't know enough about massage, or even didn't had ever massage, Massage is your body's food, don't leave your body hungry, i like to give it to don't forget my fingers experience.
How can i help you in Aswan?
Well i can arrange your program here, for example:
* Felucca in the Nile:
When you are in Aswan in the Nubia, don't miss to enjoy sailing in the Nile with a sail boat "Felucca", the Nile in Aswan is more wide and clean than other cities located north of Aswan, during felucca trip you can stop at (Aswan Botanical Garden, Nobles tombs, Old Cataract Hotel ).
* Motor boat to The Nubian tourism village:
Taking a motor boat to visit the Nubian Village "Sehel" is so amazing, trip to sehel by motor boat is fantastic, that you spend about 25 minutes on the Nile, you see no high buildings, no pollution, no Traffics, you see no thing but the nature, Nile . Green trees and golden sand of the west bank of Aswan, when you arrive to sehel you will find only nubian colorful houses, which designed as ancient Nubian houses, these houses provides Nubian foods, Nubian Drinks, Henna tattoo, Nubian souvenirs and a life crocodiles.
* Abusimple temple :
It's a three hours trip by bus, because Abusimple temple located 290 KM south of downtown, Abusimple temple is the biggest temple in Egypt built for king "RAMSIS II" and his beautiful Nubian princess "Nefertari".
* (Aswan High-dam, The Unfinished Obelisk & Philae temple):
You can have a taxi to visit the three of these sight seeing , you will never forget that day.
* Nile Cruise:
If you are in Egypt you have to see the Nile, and when you see the Nile .. Don't miss catching a 2 or 3 nights Nile cruise from Aswan to Luxor, Nile cruises are

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I will try in a hurry giving you some information about Nubia, Nubia was a great kingdom between Egypt & Sudan, and one day Nubians were the kings of the Pharaohs Egypt, but because the Pharaohs was a great civilization, they becomes very strong in a few years, then get all Nubians out of Egypt, then slowly slowly Nubia becomes a part of the New Egypt, and at 1902 Egypt built the first dam in the middle of the Nubian lands, then president of Egypt (NASSER) built Aswan high dam at the year 1960, so Nubians have to transfer from their lands, half went to North Sudan & the other half went to South Egypt, so we lost of lands, My family & i lives in the Egyptian half, and we have Egyptian nationality and we learned in Egyptian schools, so we are proud to be Egyptians, and of course proud of our Nubian roots, Nubians looks like real African people, we are blacks -But beautiful :)-, and we still have our languages but it's only spoke language not written, our culture & customs, we live in peace in Egypt, and all Egyptians respect us, they say Nubians are very kind people :).
I'm talking about Nubia for European Youtube Channel:
Day after day i make new experiences about hosting and surfing, i enjoy that so so much.
My problem in hosting was the Asians, because i met many Asian who speaks terrible English and i suffer a lot to understand and that is not joy for me, but i met also some Asians who speak very good English.
Many people in my city and in all over Egypt gave and still giving the tourists very bad impressions about our culture & life, i always try to give the best impressions for tourists, because my roots are Nubian and i'm proud so much of that, and also my study was tourism & hotels, i have about 10 years experiences working in tourism, i can inform you about every thing in my city Aswan, i would like to invite you for a drink at my home in my Nubian village Elephantine island.
Music, Movies, and Books
Nubian and Sudanese music, Bob Marley and Michael Jackson.
