About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Travel the world. Have amazing experiences. Meet people I will never forget.

ABOUT ME

I'm a laid-back, easy-going guy, who likes to stay active. I love traveling, trying out new experiences, and meeting new people. If there's something fun to be done, i WILL be there! I always need to be around people and be occupied!

I'm a Film/Law student but my passion is FILM. I can't see myself doing anything else! I can't think of anything else (besides traveling) that makes me as happy as I am when I'm making films.

I love traveling. I have traveled the world solo on at least 3 occasions. I NEVER organise or plan my trips because I believe that takes away from the pure joy of traveling. I'm all about spontaneity...living life in the moment. It's that freedom and lack of foresight that's so exciting. Those unexpected moments and events are what will make the journey an unforgettable one!

PHILOSOPHY

You only live once...but if you do it right, once is enough.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

If you're thinking of coming to Sydney, holla at me, and I'll see what I can do.

NOTE: Surprisingly, I've been getting a load of requests ever since I got back home. It's crazy :S I'm trying to do well in school this year so sorry if i can't host.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

My first couch surfing experience was a very unique one. I spent 4 nights in Daytona Beach, Florida, living on a boat in a marina. It was AWESOME!!!

Interests

I love traveling. I have the traveled the world solo on at least 3 occasions. Besides my home country of Australia, I've been to Vietnam, Fiji, New Zealand, Dubai, Morocco, Iceland, Spain, Italy, Netherlands, France, the United Kingdom, Canada, and the United States.

I'm a massive adventurer; I love going to new places, trying out new exciting (and often random) things, meeting new people and making memories. I think that's the most rewarding thing you can get from this planet. That said, I love practically every extreme sport you can think off...so long as a 100% guarantee of my safety is ensured :) Skydiving, water-rafting, rock-climbing, hiking - I'll do it all and more.

I love film and music. I'm an aspiring film director so i like photography, film-making, script-writing, and the lot. I have a SONY Z5P that I practically carry everywhere with me...every moment needs to be immortalised on film.

Like I said, I like trying out new things as random as they may seem...YOLO!

Music, Movies & Books

I LOVE film! I could watch anything as long as it's not too archaic! I love horror films as well as B-Grade films. They're sooo bad yet sooo alluring!

Some of my favourites include: Resident Evil franchise, Saw franchise, Jurassic Park franchise, The Social Network, Easy A, Mean Girls, The Air I Breathe, Wall-E, Kill Bil, Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy, etc.

As for music, I LIKE ALL TYPES OF MUSIC except heavy metal. I have an eclectic selection of music and I do go through some phases. Recently went through a folk phases (The Lumineers, Of Monsters & Men, Imagine Dragons)

One Amazing Thing I've Done

* I wouldn't say this was amazing, but I was detained in and Immigration ward in Madrid airport for 3 days for drawing in my passport. They thought I had forged a stamp. They refused to let me into the country, gave me a police escort to my plane, and deported me back to Morocco.

* When I witnessed Times Square in New York City at night for the very first time.

* When I watched the sun set over Vancouver city from the top of Grouse Mountain.

* When I went hiking in the Grand Canyon. Breathless!

So much stuff...
