About Me

My name is Ahmed Zeidan and my friends call me just Zeidan. I am a cameraman and video producer. Moved lately to Vienna and looking forward to see what couchsurfing can offer after long years of me not being active.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I had a big place in Cairo and i shared it with couch surfers for many years. currently use it when I travel to meet new people.


I hosted many people in my place in Cairo and I have stayed with hosts and met people around the world and never had a really bad experience.
