About Me


to simply live!


I know it's a bit of a cliche but for me it really depends on my mood and of course the company; but generally I'd like to think that I'm quite easy-going, I love meeting new people, having a conversation, laughing with them, and learning something new- be it a silly word in a new language or a new understanding of Hobbes' Leviathan ;)


The impossible just takes a little longer.

Life is not a rehearsal.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Whenever possible I try to host travelers and help them to enjoy their stay and to see and learn more than what the usuall tourists do and if not that I enjoy hanging out with other CSers.


I've met a lot of people, hung out with them, shown them around, ...


Literature, music, movies, theater, politics, swimming early in the morning, mountain climbing in the night, Yoga, Reiki, I usually don't stick to sth for long and tend to change my hobbies quite often.

Music, Movies, and Books

I like those movies that make me watch them again right after they end, like 'To Kill a Mockingbird'.These titles are some of my favorites of all times: The Catcher In The The Rye, The Little Prince, Adieu Gary Cooper, The Roots Of Heaven, White Dog, The Life Befor Us, A Perfect Day For Bananfish, Franny And Zooey, Rais High The Roof Beam, Equal Rites, The Agony and The Ecstasy, ...As to music I really don't have a type, I like to try anything new and if it'd make me want more of it I honestly don't care what genre it belongs to.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've tried to listen to the nature and I've heard a lot... I've spent my time among people I'd known for as short as two months and felt like being home which I think is quite amazing.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you how to cook Persian dishes or share some cool cooking tips and I'd love to learn how you make your food, I can teach you some Persian too or a little bit of Swedish, I can make you a backgammon pro! I can tell you a lot about human rights and intellectual property if you are into law or politics and I'd basically love to learn anything new, especially if it's something I can't find in a book or online.
