About Me


Pondering life


I am the hot-wind, blazing the desert sand. I am a traveler searching for the truth in this world. I enjoy learning about others, and having intellectual conversations about life...I am Egyptian, born in Nigeria, and have been living in the US for the past 15 years.


Treat people like you'd like to be treated

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I host people whenever I can, and try to couch-surf whenever I visit any new place. I love to share and learn from fellow surfers


I have been hosting people whenever I can.... some, I just meet for coffee if I couldn't host. Surfing however, I couch-surfed with people in the US, Canada, Dubai and Yemen! That was the best! I also couchsurfed all the way through a road trip from Salt Lake to Chicago, and back to Sacramento...

Music, Movies, and Books

I love to read for Paulo Coelho, Malcolm Gladwell, and anything about Psychology.... I love to listen Hamza Yusuf for reelections on life, and have a very eclectic music taste from all over the world. I am a movie addict... In the past year, I must have read over 30 books and I loved it!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Done: Hiking the highest peak in Egypt is the easy way out, but really it was changing someone's life.

Seen: Bodies show / Cirque Du Soleil - KA / Bryce Canyon.

I can give you few good tips about photography if you're a beginner.
