EXPLORER/ADVENTURER/VAN-LIFE ENTHUSIAST/DESIGNER

I’m Egyptian, habibi! 🐫 I love snowboarding, rock climbing, scuba-diving, and camping. When I’m not oot and aboot πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦, I’m usually either listening to or playing music. I can’t say I have a favourite band or genre, but my top 2019 Spotify list was: Pink Floyd, Kaleo, Allan Rayman, The Lumineers, and Luke Christopher.
