ABOUT ME
I grew up in Saudi Arabia. It is the desert that teaches silence. It is where you connect with your inner self, and where the power of meditation realized. In this era of economic booming, I'm constantly defeating the noise of the evolving, developing cities. Sometimes, this noise is like a beautiful song for happy and prosperous future. Other times, it sounds like a farewell song for me leaving home. A home where a whole generation has lived, and won't be seen by the dear next generation, the high-tech gen. The cities' faces are changing. The ones that are known to be calm, are becoming aggressive. The smiley happy ones are becoming frowny and busy. It is all about developing and changing fast rather than preserving the past. I should go back to silence. Who cares what the city noise sounds like!

One day, I went outside at 6am and I felt the nice breeze passing me going far north. My eyes followed it and I wanted to travel like the wind. It gets to travel the distance, pass by different places, and see many wonders.

I have a Bachelor degree in International Business & Marketing from Temple University and MBA from University of Texas at Arlington. I work as an accountant and consult in accounting matters.

I am a people-person and open-minded, easy going, and curious, who loves to learn about other's cultures and way of living. I learned a lot so far, but I learned nothing. So teach me about you unique culture and way of living.

PHILOSOPHY
--"Our brains generate more than 5,000 thoughts per day. It is our responsibility to have one goal, and focus to direct the brain energy to generate ideas that serves that goal. " Hence, my goal is to nurture my mind and that is my lifetime goal.

--"Live is a comedy show, enjoy it"

--"Under one Lord: All is one, perfect unity, no others."

--"Your trueself is your god, hear it, and live with it."

-- "Do not follow your desires, for which is going to destroy you. Live hopeless, so you won't be disappointed. Restrain your mind, your thoughts, and don't let your ego control you. Discipline your self, for which a discipline person lives in peace"

Don't bother and visit a place when you can find a picture of it. But to feel a place, meet locals, talk to people and listen, share and learn, help and allow others to help.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

In Christmas 2005, I took a road trip with a friend to the Southern part of the U.S and we couchsurfed in five different places. I found it a fascinating idea to travel and meet locals. You get the inside knowledge about each city. So I signed up and looking forward to meet more cool people and do more road trips.
