About Me


A spontaneous adventurer, frequently a solo traveler, very liberal, outgoing, talkative, and insanely optimistic. I love learning about the human experience, and how that is so different for everyone. I try to get to know as many different kinds of people as possible, and to remember that each person is they way they are because of everything that has ever happened to them. I like to be questioned and challenged about my opinions, and even if I get frustrated, I learn more about myself and my thought process that way.


in life is to seize the moment, never postpone joy and happiness, and never wait for the "right time" to dream, explore, and discover. There is no right time. The right time is NOW! I don't want to wake up 20 years later regretting the things I did not get to do and see. Also, always treat people the way you want to be treated. This golden rule is even more golden when couchsurfing.

I would like to travel the world, one couch at a time :

also, I'm a simple man, easy-going, open-minded, friendly, with big heart and sense of humor.Basically, trying to pass the life journey with the best memories,best experiences , and too much love:))).I like to help travelers all over the world to travel more and more, and meet more people and new people every day.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I do have The capacity to feel at home almost anywhere & love to communicate with a wide variety of people from everywhere

A few people will have noted that as I travel around, I am organizing CS meetings and getting to know people in each city.
But partying is not everything. If anyone has a question(s) I am more than happy to help out. If I can't answer straight away, I will get back to you.
I tell all my friends about CS, how wonderful it is and invite them to join
I'm ok and it will please me ( to take a coffee or show my town and country to my guests)
also I would do all what I could do for being a good guest and spend a good time with my hosts


I met a lot of really fantastic people through CS..!!
I loved the experiences i have had so far on CS, i have met some wonderful people and received so much of warmth and hospitality.Its an excellent site to connect with people and when you are travelling to meet local people
by hosting them and surfing there couches,,and also by CS meeting that I tried to Organize in most of the countries I ve visited.and I can brief my hosting experience that there are 2 completely different ways of surfing someone's couch:
1.(tourist guide way): Show your guest the entire town, spend much time with your guest.2.(Hostel way): "Here is your room, here are the keys to the apartment, have fun."

None of them is bad, but host and guest having different expectations which is often the source of complaining about a host or a guest.
_I am not offended if someone only needs a place to sleep, and I cannot not guarantee to always have much time for guests...But I will try:)


I like traveling without thinking about where you go and what you expect, getting lost in unknown places, meeting interesting people, doing exciting things and helping people in need.
LIFE in general is my prime interest... human beings, traveling ,photography ,reading and ...
I love nature, sunrises, animals, art (architecture, paintings, photography, poems, litterature...), spending time with people I love, learning new ways of thinking and living, observing people or myself, making them/me laugh or smile, be myself (spontaneous)...!!
