About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Enjoying the little things in life

ABOUT ME

I just came back from 5 months in Italy where I studied my last semester of the degree. Now trying to re-adapt back to the normal routine. I started an internship in a law firm in Tel Aviv and already fantasizing about the next traveling opportunity I would have. As a student I was trying to save money and take advantage of the holidays for traveling to various countries and try to to experience the distinct character of each place I visited. I especially enjoyed the backpacking life and the uncertainty of the traveling life- every day is new and will surely bring encounters with unfamiliar places and most importantly- people. you meet along the way. So as you can alreday realize I love traveling and think it truly is the best thing one can do with his money, especially at this stage of life. I hope I will get to meet great and fun people through couchsurfing, at least as great as I managed to meet on my trevling experiences.

PHILOSOPHY

Life is short, Break the Rules.
Forgive quickly, Kiss SLOWLY.
Love truly. Laugh uncontrollably
And never regret ANYTHING
That makes you smile

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I heard about this network through friend, and did some "unofficial" couchsurfing (not through the website): Hosted friends I got to know abroad when they came to visit Israel, as well as friends of friends. Also, I experienced the same as a guest in fried's houses. Now I decided it might be fun to do it through here as well

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I always like to show people around Israel and Jerusalem in particular (I just recently moved to TLV so still more familiar with Jerusalem)- the food and especially the hummus is always very exciting to everyone, I always remember to warn people to keep some room for the actual hummus and not get too full by the bread :) I especially like to see other people excited about what seems me to be the "normal life", I guess that's one thing that i so great about couchsurfing in particular- It helps you look at things through the perspective of people that really "live" the place

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Slept in Milano central train station with my sleeping bag since I forgot to book a hostel on time. Ended up to be a great funny night where I met other travelers who did the same, from all over. Made me understood that getting out of your comfort zone might open the door to the best, most memorable experiences

Teach, Learn, Share

share my exepriences from traveling abroad- from my familiarity with other countries and cultures. I think I can learn something valuable from anyone
