Hey everyone, my name is Aziz! I live between my home country of Kuwait and the US (around the NYC area to be specific).
I've been using Couchsurfing for a few years now
mainly to meet up with locals during my travels or to hangout with travelers at home. I also host and surf from time to time. At this point, I cannot host anyone in Kuwait, but I'll gladly take you on a local's tour of Kuwait. If I’m in the US, I can gladly host you but you have to mention the word “Potato” in the beginning of your request because I get many requests and I can’t accommodate everyone. Also, I’m always traveling or busy at times so I don’t know my schedule far in advance so messaging me no more than one week before your arrival is ideal.
I'm passionate about everything that elevates the human experience whether through technology, education, economics, or sound public policy. I'm attracted to ideas that have the potential to improve the standard of living and quality of human life.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Meet locals and learn about different points of view.
Clarify misconceptions and discover the human experience at its many facets.
Big sports fan. My favorite sports are soccer, American football, basketball, boxing, tennis, and handball (in that order).
Scuba diving. Been doing it since I was 14. Anything water-related really: swimming, fishing, sailing, free diving.
I also love food (who doesn't ?!) and I’m a part owner of a chain of Acai shops.

Teach, Learn, Share
I can teach you Arabic if you are up for the challenge.
I would love to learn about your country, culture, and traditions.
Let's share travel stories, a meal, or a cup of tea/coffee.
What I Can Share with Hosts
I live between New York and Kuwait City. Kuwait is NOT touristy at all. There's isn't much to see, and there aren't any efforts to expand tourism at this time. In fact, most travel forums recommend not visit the country, but you should! Kuwait is all about its people and culture, and not so much about its places or touristy attractions.
Let's a share a traditional Kuwaiti meal, maybe some tea after. I can share my knowledge of the region's history, culture, politics, and social life.
If you offer to cook a meal or bring a souvenir from your country, your chances of getting hosted will significantly improve!
