About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Prove the world once and for all that real humus doesn't exist outside of the middle east

ABOUT ME

I split my time between being a student, working and having fun with our little commuinty. I love fellow travelers, and if I have the time would always be into hanging out. If you wish to get into a political discussion (a left wing one I hope), get to know the city, or simply find a quiet place to lay your head, this can work out well.

PHILOSOPHY

Live and let live... but, and there is a big one, that old phrase works only when the conditions are provided, which means equality, freedom and good intention. Since our world doesn't take these for granted, we have to do it ourselves, to make sure that our society will provide with the means for everyone to live as they wish, as long as they don't harm anyone else, and hopefully even benefit their surroundings. So why live and let live then? Because with those around me, I take this attitude, hoping for the best. And the same goes with those who will want to surf with me.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I used to travel a lot, and for now I have a place in Tel Aviv which I would love to share with those who are passing by the city.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

So far I had a few amazing experiences with couchsurfing. One in India, one with a wonderful American group in Thailand, one with an amazing guy in Prague, and the best one so far in Aremenia. I met some really interesting people in Vienna, one of them became a really good friend. These adventures really opened me up to that scene.

Interests

To lists all of my interests might take a while, so I'll mention the fact that I was working for a non profit that focused mainly on education, and relations between Jews and Palestinians. I am traveling a lot, trying to experience as many different cultures, only to know how much I love my own... (or not). And besides music and books, that deserve their own place, I started doing Yoga a lot, which proves to be a wise decision on my behalf. For now most of my time though goes to physics and mathematics.

Music, Movies & Books

One of my favorite authors is David Grossman, and whenever I get to read a new Novel by him, I get extremely excited. Music: Bon Iver, Alex Turner, Bright eyes, Mumford and sons, Radiohead, the Smiths, King Crimson, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin and of course (needless to say) The Beatls.
