About Me

We have relocated from Israel to Albuquerque in 2012. Dima is working on his PHD in Indian Philosophy at UNM and Micka is an educational director at a synaguge. We have 2 girls (Ella was born on 2014 and Maya Simran on 2015).

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Micka surfed in NYC, Dallas and China, and hosted quite a few people in Jerusalem and Haifa. Together, we surfed Jay's couch in San Francisco, and hosted several times in Albuquerque. Each and every time has been a pleasure and an educational experience.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

crossing the world to live and study at the US has been pretty amazing so far.

Teach, Learn, Share

As guests: we would love to learn about a social project you're involved in/ go to a concert of a local group/ find the best place to get whatever the local food is/ take part in any religious ceremony (main sport events included)/ be invited to a family event (weddings are preferred to funerals...)/stay at home and watch a movie.

As hosts: We'd love to come explore with you and share what we know. Or can cook you an Israeli/Russian dinner and hear all about your day!

Countries I’ve Visited

Greece, Italy, Jordan, Turkey, United Kingdom

Countries I’ve Lived In

Israel, United States
