About Me

English

When I take breaks from chasing after the main goals in my life, I seek for great adventures. I usually travel without long-term-plans or big commitments. that's my recipe for a good trip.

I would say that I'm a fun and friendly guy. I enjoy meeting new people. You're invited to become a part of my adventure, by travelling together, hiking, going to a museum or a to concert, or just by having a coffee.

Español

Cuando tomo descansos de persiguir los objectivos principales de la vida, busco aventuras. Normalmente viajo sin planes a largo plazo ni compromisos grandes. eso es mi receta para un viaje memorable.

Pienso que soy un tipo divertido y amigable. Me gusta conocer gente. Te invito a ser parte de mi aventura: viajando juntos, hacer hiking, ir a un museo o un concierto, o simplemente compartir un café.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

Travelling as a Couchsurfer gives me the opportunity to find the magic in a place by experiencing it through the eyes of someone who loves it. Most of the greatest travel experiences in my life were related, in a way, to Couchsurfing;

The same goes for the riskiest travel experiences in my life :) In Argentina, I almost lost my hand while being instructed (in a foreign language!) on how to use fireworks. In Russia, I slept for three nights under a huge oil portrait of dictator Joseph Stalin. In Bolivia, I got arrested by a couple of corrupt cups, and in Chile the police has sent a rescue team to save my host and myself from an almost-deadly thunderstorm in the mountains.

My mom says that I should be more careful, but at this point she also admits that the greatest way to explore our world is with local couchsurfers around you :)

Interests

Hiking, biking, swimming, jogging, or any kind of physical activity that can be done out in the wild. I love getting to know places that I visit through their history, economy, politics and culture.

Music, Movies & Books

Classical music, jazz, rock, Brazilian, and Israeli music are my favorites.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Swimming in an alligator infested lake, while dolphins swimming around and protecting me as one of their own.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach Hebrew and Spanish, how to play the trombone and how to make Israeli dishes like Shakshuka and Hummus.
