ABOUT ME

Tsahi & Noa:

We both love to travel and host people in our house. its amazing listening to stories from all over the world. you are invited to share it with us here!

Tsahi:
Im a fun loving guy which love to have a good laugh and make friends on the spot. i love fantasy and role playing games, am a video games addict and a tech-geek from birth. i love to share with my friends what i have and always appreciate honesty and good will. i dealt with ancient weapons and antiques, programming and nowdays i have established with Noa, a video game studio which we intend to develop games for children, among other games we develop ( such as facebook, iphone etc ). i love to talk about technology, israel, traveling experiences and my vision for education and better world. cant wait to meet all of you :)

I'm married happily to the most beautiful and smart woman in the galaxy, Noa, which is a gifted illustrator for newspapers, children books, and many other neat stuff!

Noa:
I've been drawing since I remember myself, and liked to read since I learnd how. I studied in an Art high school, decided that I don't want to get close to art, ever, and then I came back to that in the Army, where I did comics about my great experience in bootcamp and in the course I passed (I really did not know to keep my mouth shut :P).

I was passionate of Illustration since high-school, and went to study it in the Graphic Design department at the Bezalel Academy of Art & Design in Jerusalem. I moved for that to Jerusalem and lived there 4 years.

Oh! and I'm vegetarian.

PHILOSOPHY

Be good to others, and you will at least enjoy a feeling that you done your part to make this world a better place, even if the other side is not doing the same.

So many people nowdays care only for acquiring more power and funds, we're not saying this is not important, but it is not the top of the priority ladder, since the reason we are working so hard is to have more fun and enjoy our lives, and if this the case, treating others bad damages this exact goal.

So we are not saying - be a tree-hugger, but just be a good person and influence others to have a good time.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

We couchsurf and we host gladly any interesting person in need for a place to sleep in Israel - Ramat Gan & Tel Aviv area.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

We first met CouchSurfing before our trip to Italy. We managed to CouchSurf a third of our nights there. A year later, in our trip to U.S, we managed to CouchSurf our whole trip. It was excellent.
A year later - we couchsurfed in France.
We can't compare it to any other trip experience in the regular methods. We are still in touch with some of our hosts.
We hosted many people here at home, and enjoyed it very much.

Music, Movies & Books

Movies
----------------------------------
Tsahi:
I'm a great fan of fantasy movies (LOTR, Harry Potter...you get my grip), westerns (go go Clint),
old action & war movies (The Great Escape...),
and interesting TV series such as Prison Break, Lost, Jericho, The Unit....

Noa:
I like dramas. The most intresting part in the movie, in my opinion, is the story. History films. Animated movies. I really like Miyazaki. I prefer 2d animation, though the 3d's enter more and more.

Both:
Sci-fi movies! (Trekkie, aliens, anything weird with worm tunnels :)

Books:
----------------------------------
Heck, we have a whole library full with fantasy, legends & sci-fi books (one cupboard) and History & Judaism (another cupboard). There's another cupboard of Art, Design and comics.

Music
----------------------------------
Tsahi:
Love most genres, but especially Hip Hop, RnB, Blues, Country and good rhythm songs.

Noa:
I hear mostly Israeli music, both old & new. I also love folk rock.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Tsahi:
When I was about 16 ,at high school, I volunteered for teaching children at a club, with its purpose was to help families with many children, so they wont wander the streets, and will be somewhere safe and educational.
Many of the kids there were at start aggressive, unwilling to listen to an adult, but step after step I managed to teach them Bible, Math, English, and it was very satisfying.
I done that for a whole year, and than received the mayor award for my contribution.
It may sound a cliche but the best reward was their happiness and achievements.
