About Me

I am currently living in Lille, after graduating from an engineering school in Rabat, I decided to do another master in Networks & Telecommunications Engineer this year here in Lille, France. I like traveling and meeting new people more than taking pictures of ruins and buildings and my current mission is to travel the world and discover its wonders and meet all kinds of wonderful people around the globe. I like learning about new cultures and linking past to present to be able to guess the future. I dream often of a better world for everyone and I do my best to work on it.

I'm a pretty uncomplicated guy that enjoys traveling and meeting new people. Sometimes I'm a little sarcastic, but I know where the limits are. I enjoy a good joke and don't take myself too seriously. I am open-minded and am very much into the idea that you can live a reality that you choose for yourself. I am spontaneous and like to focus on enjoying the moment and having as less stress as possible.I always enjoy being creative and i like to try new things and try out new ideas.

The rest you can figure out yourself by meeting me.

" Everything you can imagine is real. " - Pablo Picasso

" You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough. " - Mae West

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I am currently hosting travelers from across the world in my humble flat, And If my couch isn't available for a certain period for a reason or another, I am still able to meet travelers for a coffee or a drink, hanging out, showing them around the city, historical landmarks etc.

I have met extraordinary people through couchsurfing and made life-long friends thanks to it, and I can't have enough of meeting new people from different cultures and learning their stories and experiences.
