“I am not the same, having seen the moon shine on the other side of the world.”
Well ... i am not really good in this but i will give a quick summary :)
***The serious part of me***
I am a civil engineer. I design steel structures like aircraft hangar and high rise buildings .. etc. I am working for an american company in portland , oregon ,USA , i am a supervisor in cairo office.

***Now the part that i love :)***
I am a big fan of travelling. I love to discover new cultures and making new friends. I adore my family and my amazing chocolate labrador Diego.
I love attending concerts and partying. I love walking and discovering the different neighborhoods. Tasting beer in every city i visit is a must :P
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
“A journey is best measured in friends, rather than miles.”
I have joined couchsurfing in 2011 after i attended an event with a friend who
introduced me to this community that became an amazing part of my life.
To me traveling is not about having a good vacation , i discovered that i am kind of addicted to it :)
But the best part about traveling is the people we meet during the journey. I consider that everyone i meet is a new treasure. I love to know about other cultures and tell others about my culture.
What i love also about couchsurfing is the amazing diversity ... it proves that there is no real borders or barriers and we all belong to one universe
Every single one i met through couchsurfing is a very special friend to me
