À propos de moi


To be able to hold a full conversation in Japanese


My name is Matan, but you know that already... :)
I live with my boyfriend Avner in a cozy apartment in Jerusalem.

I enjoy meeting people from all around the world and knowing all about their culture, experiences and life stories.
I'm very open minded and liberal in my Outlook on life.
I appreciate a good sense of humor and I like to laugh about everything (and I mean EVERYTHING).
I love nature, music, food, History, Languages, things that make me laugh and to make others laugh.

I am currently studying Japanese and would love to practice it with other people :)

My philosophy? I'm not sure I have one yet :)
But I'm always trying to be nice and helpful, is that enough?

Pourquoi je suis sur Couchsurfing


When I host - I like showing people around, while learning about their culture :)
Usually when I have surfers over, I try to take them to places of interest that I can also enjoy - museums, special restaurants or cafes, favorite spots in Israel and so on. If my time is free, I will gladly do that.

When I'm surfing - Obviously, I try to pick hosts that seem nice and that have something in common with me. That said, I'm very open minded about all different kinds of life styles and opinions.

I'm curious and talkative.
Avner is more of a shy person, but he is curious about our guests nonetheless :)
I enjoy getting to know my hosts as well as my guests.

My boyfriend Avner is very hospitable to the people we host but I'm the one in charge of our CS plans, basically. That's not to say he doesn't want to be a part of the CS project, He's simply more comfortable leaving dealing with that to me :)


I have met some wonderful people along the way.

I spent 1 month in Europe doing mostly couch surfing, and it was such a unique experience! I've met some really generous people, who welcomed me in the most heartwarming of ways.
When I hosted people I took advantage of the opportunity to go to places in my country that I rarely go to like Ein Gedi or the old city in Jerusalem at night - wonderful experience!

I spent 3 weeks couchsurfing around Japan. That was nice experience although Japanese flats are definitely the smallest I've seen :)
