24/08/2018 - 25/09/2021
I'm 34 years old from Cairo, Egypt. I studied media engineering (audiovisuals and electronics to be specific) and was really enjoying my job, but some time away from this, connecting more with nature and other cultures was highly needed. Currently on a long needed career break, as I left my job in the beginning of 2018 after almost eight years between Cairo and Dubai.
Now I'm traveling as long as I can afford while trying to make a purpose out of it and be more involved with communities where I go, by volunteering, gaining local's experiences and learning something new, until maybe I find myself a place or project that would keep me settled again for some time..
I try to keep my travel balanced generally, as I still like and enjoy big cities (usually a good introduction to a new country) but I tend to prefer less touristy destinations, and being outdoors..
Update: was back home for 2020, but now out traveling again while working remotely,, let's see how long this could last..
Good with handcrafts, electronics and tech stuff, enjoy cooking, gardening and learning new things..
More details about my language interests
This workawayer has indicated that they would be interested in sharing their language(s) or learning a new language. You can contact them directly to discuss this.
During traveling I've volunteered in a couple of hostels, beach camps and eco-lodges; doing usual reception/guest services, as well as construction, cooking, farming, and organizing trips/events.
I'm very flexible and adaptive, which made this experience more enjoyable for both me and previous hosts..
I recently learned making mosaic, and was introduced to earth-building in my previous workaways, as well as some traditional building using stones, wood and bamboo for example, depending on the place.
