About Me

As a tour guide I need to travel a lot. As me, I need to travel even more.

I can explain many things (one of the perks of being a teacher and a student for most of your life), but the hardest is to describe "who I am, who we are". But, isn't that the eternal question, and what gives most of us analysis paralysis? In short, I am a restless eager soul who likes to wander, experience, and learn.

Couchsurfing used to ask all these questions about personal philosophy, thoughts and feelings. Then they decided to get rid of it (which was smart). However, I don't mind keeping them for the time being.

It used to be the relativism, to think every simple subject is relative. Then it was the uncertainty. Nothing seemed certain. They looked the same but they were not. Was it about the eager for perfection? Or only lack of courger to admit a philosophy, to pick one? Don't know yet. But I know I still need to learn, need to find out what the world is. Maybe it's too soon to pick a philosophy.

What is your personal philosophy?
It is my "personal" philosophy.

Why do you live your life?
Pretty much to live my life.

Feelings, thoughts?
The moment I speak them out, they all look meaningless. Words are often useless to present how I feel.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Yes, at the very least, couchsurfing makes travelling cheaper and more affordable. But, what I have experienced is that it can enrich the whole experience way beyond my expectations. Whether I am travelling with a fellow couchsurfer, host one, or surf on someone's couch, I know there is the potential to learn something new, to make new friends, and to appreciate life.


I have a keen interest in learning new languages and cultures, film photography, and most of all, wandering. Whether it is in nature, a remote village or a big city, any sort of wandering that results in finding and getting to know those little hidden gems, is on my to-do list.

Teach, Learn, Share

I am a lifetime student, open to learning something new. And, when it comes to photography, the English language, or cooking some tasty Persian cuisine, I'd be more than happy to teach and share.
