About Me

I am an open-minded liberal guy. Born and raised in Egypt and moved to Germany in 2017. I'm new in town and looking to make a home out of Dresden.

I love to drink and chat with anyone and everyone! Also like going to karaoke bars and get drunk enough to embarrass myself on the stage.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I am always looking to make friends and connections wherever I go. I think Couchsurfing is the perfect platform for that. It was already the reason I met some of my best friends.

Music, Movies, and Books

For music and movies, I don't have any specific favorite genre. I just appreciate art that has a quality to it. However, you'll find that my movie knowledge exceeds my music knowledge by light years.

I am really shitty when it comes to reading books. Even though I enjoy it, I just can't seem to start. However, when I start a book, I obsess over it and finish it in 2-3 days max.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Does spending the night on the streets of Venice, Italy count?

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you anything you want to know about Islam, Arabs, or whatever the fuck those people in the middle east do. When it comes to staying in shape, I give the best advice. However, I'm not very good at following them. On a more boring note, I can teach you software engineering too.

I want to learn the German language, but I never get to it. If you have a fun way to teach me, then let's do it!

I am willing to share a conversation over drinks with you. I have been told that I'm a good listener.
