About Me

I live in an amazing historical area in medieval Cairo and work in one of the oldest working hospitals in the world, which has been working since 1285 AD, more than 735 years.
So I love to enjoy cities with culture, taste and stories, and to have my own special story, good moments and good memories.
I love to know people and have good talks and long meaningful conversations, I think it's like a fuel of relationships between people.

Even though I'm busy, I'm deeply passionate about travelling, most of the time I can't say no to a short distance unplanned weekend travel.

I love food and I'm very selective and judgemental in this 😅

I love to have time with nature and enjoy it's beauty.
I like going to Opera, music concerts, having a movie night with friends.

I'm a blood donation activist on a very small scale (family, friends, colleagues and people around)

I always try to conserve resources as much as I can, and reduce the amount of waste I create, except for one bad thing... I'm a smoker and I wish to quit smoking someday.

By the way , I'm not here for sex , neither with females or males, my religion and culture prevent sex out marriage and I'm committed to this.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To know and taste more cultures as deep as native not as tourist.
To get more friends, real friends from all over the world.
Usually I have a hotel reservation for my trip, but I leave one or two days free if the city is generous to host me for more days, so if you are ready to host me or not ready, we can still meet up, share some stories, explore nice places,have a drink or maybe try some good food.
