ⴰⵣⵓⵍ ⴼⴻⵍⴰⵡⴻⵏ - Hello everyone - Merhabalar - السلام عليكم - Salut à tous - Hola a todos - Hallo allerseits - Cześć wszystkim - שלום לכולם
- 大家好 - みなさん、こんにちは - 여러분 안녕하세요 - всем привет - Halo watu wote
My name is Youcef (Cognates=يوسف, Yusuf, Joseph, Josef, José, יוסף), from Aramaic, Arabic and Hebrew, meaning "God increases" (in piety, power and influence).
I grew up in Aïn Touta (ex Mac Mahon), in the depth of Les Aurès region in Eastern part of Algeria. It is known for its rocky mountains, harsh conditions especially in winter and it contains one of the biggest national parks, it's called Belezma Parc.
At the present time, I live in Turkey, precisely in Eskişehir ~ 300 km east of İstanbul.
I graduated from Department of Pharmacy in Batna city in my home country where I also studied English language.
Now, I am looking forward to live unforgettable experiences by traveling. I believe that life is too short to miss the opportunity to live it !
The main reason why I am on Couchsurfing is because it is an excellent way to get to know people, make new friends, and enjoy the company!
Exploring the world through meeting interesting people who have different perspectives, backgrounds and life experiences.
I'm easy-going, open-minded, risk taker and carefree person, I respect the rules of my host. And one of the joyful moments I like the most is having a nice conversation about almost anything, whether cultures, languages, or events..etc. I adore walking too!
My PHILOSOPHY :
I believe in good values in people!
* DO NOT SEND ME A FRIEND REQUEST if we don’t know each other!
* BEFORE YOU SEND ME A STAY REQUEST, PLEASE READ MY PROFILE.
* I always reply to messages, usually immediately, sometimes after few hours.
Only customized requests will be taken into consideration.

Music, Movies, and Books
Honestly speaking, I don't have a particular book as favorite,
I adore watching Sci-Fi movies. Interstellar is my favorite movie so far. Hans Zimmer's compositions are a masterpiece in this movie.
I like Christopher Nolan, Ridley Scott and Steven Spielberg movies.
Inception, Fight Club, Memento, Jurassic World movies, The Dark Knight trilogy, Shutter Island, Inglorious Basterds..
Breaking Bad is my favorite TV show ever seen.
Equalizer, I like Washington Denzel's movies.
I am that kind of person who listens to all genres of music. I like Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin and oldies..
However, my favourite band is the local Algerian berber band Tinariwen (Tishoumaren, world, blues, folk, rock).
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Life is beautiful!
Many crazy adventures with my brother getting lost in the depth of Les Aurès region in Algeria. I still remember one of these moments where we were penetrating into the unknown of that nature reserve losing all human telecommunications..
