About Me

I'm an open-minded, easygoing guy living in Jerusalem. I like hiking, archaeological sites, trying new foods and chilling in my courtyard. I play a couple of instruments and will happily jam with you.
In my spare time I like learning new things, like languages, science, history and music.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

When I was traveling in various countries I received help and hospitality from locals on many occasions and I am grateful for that, so now that I'm back in my homeland I want to provide visitors with the same experience.
