PHILOSOPHY

do all the good things, you can, in your life
love freedom above all
tell the truth even in front of the king
be kind to the poors
be rude only to yourself

faire tout le bien qu'on peut
aimer la liberté par-dessus tout
et quand ce serait pour un trone
ne jamais trahir la vérité
soyez bienveillant aux pauvres mondes
et rude pour vous seul

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

i participate to the couch surfing after discovering the site while washing a program in the R.T...T.V chanel (Russia to day )about the representative of couch surfing in Mongolia receiving an english lady in his home where she spent few days with his family.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

new to the couchsurfing with no experience because i was always travelling on my own either for work or pleasure for the last 50 years .
i join couchsurfing now since i don't know about it before and i am convinced that travelling to places where you can meet with friends is more enjoyable .

Interests

art,antique,history of cultures,music (classic in particolar )phylosophy,writting poems,walking,exchange of ideas,curing with herbs,cooking,all kind of intertainments and having fun with group of friends

i rarely read books ( like SIMENON famous writer who never red a book in his life...don't know if he is doing it in his grave now)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

when i was student i use to travel to many countries
hichhiking in Europe which is no more easy now days as before.
i slept in london train stations on the groud to save one pound to be paid to the hotel

Teach, Learn, Share

i want and i am able to teach,learn and share every thing to improve our life and the humanity fate all over the globe . I also :
PLEASE i am a couch surfing member and doing my duty which consist in :
---- offer free couch when possible to other members visting Tunisia .Any other expenses done should be shared between host and guest
---- i am not a travel agency neither have a relation with travel agencies .At the contrary i am fighting against their corruption and making the visitors paying hight price for services costing less than that .They also drag the visitor to places WHO ARE NOT THE TRUE FACE OF TUNISIA and where they pay hight price for their stay .
---- for the above reason i took the decision of becaming the tourist guide ( FREE OF CHARGE ) within the C.S. ORG. and have been working for the last year BLOGS to offer to the C.S. members in order that they can enjoy visiting Tunisia confortably and with a reasonable budget .
---- that why i can prepare a thouraw plan/program for our C.S. members to visit on their own ( and some times in my company ) and safely with efficient public transportation all places they want to visit in Tunisia
IN CONCLUSION THAT WHAT GIVES TO TUNISIA THE BEST REPUTATION TO BE A DESTINATION FOR MANY VISITORS

What I Can Share with Hosts
