whatever love you can get and give, whatever happiness you can filch or provide, every temporary measure of grace, whatever works
I love good movies, openmindedness, being spontaneous, reading books and talking about them, galleries, meeting new and different people, taking photos, hitchhiking, travelling the world, doing something crazy or uncommon, concerts and festivals, poetry slams, spending time with the ones i love, talking on the phone for hours, alternative music and little cafes.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I like both to host and to surf. I also try to participate in the local groups wherever i am. I am not only hosting but I also try to show them around and give them insider information.
I am not (only) couchsurfing because I am a poor student but also because it is much more intense to get to know a city by spending time with locals.
Couchsurfing is one of the biggest discoveries i had in the last years. I like to couchsurf and I'd like to host, too.
Also I enjoyed a couple of CS events in Israel, Iraq and Germany.
In my life i lived in a couple of very different places and had very different jobs (from fighting to corruption in Iraq to working with lobbyists in Berlin). I like contrasts and diversity. I am very interested in getting to know different people and different mind-sets.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I worked in a jewish-arab peace project and with holocaust survivors in israel - this has been a great experience.
I lived in Iraq and worked with an NGO trying to fight corruption. This was not a very comfy time but it was a great lesson to learn.
