About Me

«Be the change you want to see in the world.» - Mahatma Gandhi.

I believe that all the highest ideals of life should not just remain in the scriptures; and that we can actually live according to them.

Life (the way I see it) is all about connecting to People, to the Earth and to the Spirit.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Member since 2008.
Mainly hosting. But also organizing events (picnics, potlucks, photo-walks, board games gatherings, language exchanges and discussion groups), meeting for showing aroud the area, and surfing while traveling.
In 2011 I was invited by the Couchsurfing Team to become a Couchsurfing Ambassador.
Met over 600 people through Couchsurfing, and have always learned something positive from every single couchsurfer.


- sustainable development / nature / permaculture;
- organic agriculture / ecological farming;
- spirituality / religion / Islam;
- holistic health / nutrition;
- Yoga.

Anyway, what really matters is not what we like, but what we are like.

Music, Movies, and Books

Documentary movies.

I'm a compolsive reader / "book warm"!! ;D
(books on sustainable development, history, politics, spirituality and religion)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

To have achieved certain states of self-consciousness.

Teach, Learn, Share

Can teach what I described as my main interests.

Would love to learn:
- more and more about these subjects I'm passionate about;
- and probably quite more (as I'm pretty open and use to become interested in new things quite often);
- french conversational skills + arabic language.

And CS is all about sharing, isn't it?

What I Can Share with Hosts

Smiles, respect, gratitude, flexibility, openness and eventually help in anything I may be able to contribute to.

Countries I’ve Visited

Cabo Verde, Finland, Germany, Greece, Italy, Malta, Morocco, Portugal, Spain, Turkey, United Kingdom, Western Sahara

Countries I’ve Lived In

England, Morocco, Portugal
