About Me


Hi, August 2017 - I moved from Tel Aviv to Beer Sheva.

Hi, this is December 4th 2016, and I am back after a long break. I want to start hosting again: maybe 2-3 nights a month.

I'm a morning person, but I don't discriminate - some of my best friends are night people.
I used to work as part of the administrative stuff of the Israeli Open University, and now I work as a marketing secretary from home.
In my free time I'm involved in activities for social-political change.
I love traveling to big cities, and especially I try to get to know the music in each place I visit.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I surfed a few times in Istanbul and it was a great experiance! My hosts were lovely!
I hosted around 10 times in Tel-Aviv, and that was really nice too! I took some time off, and now I am ready to host again. Since I moved to Be'er-Sheva I only hosted once, but it reminded me why I liked couchfurfing. :)


I love watching movies, listening to music and hanging out with friends. Also interested in politics and human rights.
