گزارشهای فارسی :

English articles :

I just travel without thinking of anything may happen! Now I plan to make some documentary in special destinations in my way, after get deep in that culture. I also wrote a book on traveling.

I trust in god and let it be! use streets or parks for sleeping, but most days I,d been helped by kind people whom I love:)

As student of Cultural Studies, simply I love different cultures...

I love playing harmonica, If you are a musician, you can count on me to play and sing some songs together in street and gather some money :)

Most of times I'm in travel or planning my next trip, then don't hesitate to suggest me travel together if you interested, I'm in with highly chance :D It's hard for me staying in one place... :|

I work as a journalist for long years, I wrote about art : cinema, theater and sometimes paintings... I also work as an actor and public relation in some movies...
but now I just consider myself as director and writer.


In my opinion, real travelers hardly use airplane for transportation. And they are humble

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I traveled for 2months with Fabian around Iran, start from a cave in Qazvin and finished it in deserts of Kerman. I'd also 1month traveling with Rati, 1week with Echo and another week with David and much more... I'd also explore Turkey with help of CS members. for me CS is my big great kind family :)
