Coming to what people think about me.

I travel like Tony Wheeler !
You are someone who others will come to rely on for their best travel advice and information. With any luck at all, you'll eventually get bought out by the BBC, so you can retire, and then keep traveling anyway.
What type of traveler are you?
Take BootsnAll's Travel Quiz to find out.


I believe that we as human beings lives in purpose, to meet each other and to understand each other. We have to enjoy our time by doing whatever we like without harming others. If people works hard then they will enjoy the benefits at the end, as " If they work hard, they will play hard."
Religion is something between you and your God and whatever you are believing in, respecting other believes is important.
Education is the wheel that can drives you anywhere you want. As much knowledge you get, as much you become a very successful person in your life, using it the right time with the right place.

Live by defining a dream and chase it by having variable goals in between.
That's how I'm living my life

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I participated when I first met a couchsurfer from Europe by chance, through a friend of mine. It was interesting to hangout with a person that I've never met before and came to my country through a network called I joined and then started meeting other surfers from all over the world.
In 2011, I went into a trip to Goergia. After checking in Goergia via Facebook, that person emailed me and said, man I'm also coming to Goeriga soon! It was an awesome coincidence! very interesting thing to meet the person who inspired me to this amazing network.
We spent a great time together and traveled to some cities around.


I have been couchsurfed by many others when I was traveling. Before joining couchsurfing, I was bit concerned about the places that I was visiting if I don't know people there. But now, whenever I go, I can easily find many people that I can hang out with and spend great times in the city that I'm travailing at.
Now I have friends from all over the world!

Most of the CSerfers that I meet, are more than CSserfer, they mean a lot to me and in most of the cases.


Photography, video directing and creation, travelling, exploring other cultures, leadership, meeting people from other countries, swimming, reading, cycling, socialising...

Music, Movies, and Books

I like more Rock music such as Metallica, Iron Maiden, Guns n Roses. I also enjoy listening to Country music beside some many other bands such as Cold Play and many from there and there.
I like reading those books that are related to my major, especially those books related to leadership and management.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

During my life time, I have seen and done many amazing things that some I'm really glad that I have done and see but many are not.
For the ones that I'm really happy about was:

- Visited New York city, and went all the way up to the Empire State building.
- Surfed in Mission Beach.
- Rode one of the highest roller coasters in the world.
- Elected by the department of State as the most activist alumni in the world for Jan,2010.


- Saw many people got shot by a gun in our neighbourhood in Baghdad.
- Many and very close bombs exploded in front of me.
- Witnessed couple of times streets gun fights, in my city.
- Killed a bird unintentionally! :D
