ABOUT ME

I'm a happy person from Tel Aviv. I'm a product manager in high-tech and spend hours around computers all day, but I love meeting new people, exploring new places and new cultures.

I'm also a real foody! I love trying new stuff and showing you to the best places in town.

PHILOSOPHY

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I enjoy meeting locals when I'm traveling, and I'm happy to meet travelers to Tel Aviv and Israel, show you around or meet for drinks, or event host sometimes if it works out.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I met a few locals in my last trip to Amsterdam through couchsurfing, which was great!
I met many locals in San Francisco who showed me around and took me to awesome restaurants - it was so much fun.
In Barcelona I organized a big CS event (about 40 people arrived), and met many fellow travelers and some locals. I've made some really good friends there!
I love meeting up with tourists coming to visit Tel Aviv or locals living in cities I travel to. I've made so many great new friends from all those meetups!
