About Me

I'm a creative person who is also a traveler and photographer, I enjoy telling stories from my travels, enjoy meeting new people from different cultures and backgrounds. I love nature and outdoor activities, and enjoy discovering new cities.

Travel and photography are my passion, I enjoy capturing beautiful moments, amazing places, faces of of people from all over the world.
I’ve traveled to many places around the world and that taught me all people are good by nature.

I love to go out explore new places, nearby cities, listen to music, go for a night out trying new restaurants or have a drink, working out, hiking, or just spending a lazy night at home with a drink and my favorite book, go to the movies, choose a random travel destination spontaneously and hit the road.

Most of my life I've been driven by this quote "Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known." for Carl Sagan.
it simply illustrates my constant curiosity toward everything in life.

I've pretty much done many of my travels in a spontaneous way, traveling to Moscow in December, Hiking Kilimanjaro during the rain season, Hiking mount Catherine in Egypt, Swimming in hot water spring under stars light in the great sand sea of the north African Sahara, hiking the southern rim of the grand canyon.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I have a lot of friends from many destinations all over the planet and many diversities, I enjoy intellectual conversations with other friends where we can exchange different opinions, philosophies, prospectives about life as a whole.

I also like to share my knowledge with other people.
I really enjoy the time I spend with all of my friends showing them different places and also enjoyed the company of the new friends that I've met on the road.

in many of my trips I travel solo, but i always meet someone along the road, and it is always incredible...


I'm a person with diverse interests, driven by curiosity toward everything, so while i love traveling, i also do a lot of photography, videography, hiking, camping, star gazing, radio hamming, creative writing, diving, snorkeling, I'm also interested in learning other languages as part of my travel activities.
