Sorry guys and girls,
I’m off to brazil for 6 months of couchsurfing fun.

If you’re a traveller in need and looking for some help,
please try the City Ambs:

See you when i get back!




My name is Robert, I’m 28 and I live in ofer, which is an agricultural settlement on the outskirts of Haifa. The surrounding is very quite, with lots of animals around (horses, sheep, chicken, …).

I can offer a couch, some floor-space to lay your sleeping bag or some room in the backyard to pitch a tent, if you prefer it that way.

I really love to travel the world and meet new people, and while I’m not traveling, couch surfers bring the spirit of traveling to me 🙂

I would love to accommodate any number of people. i can fit 2 in my house and have enough blankets/sleeping bags for them. more than that – there’s alot of grass here for a tent…

I don’t have pets, i don’t usually smoke but have no problem with smokers and i can pick you up from the central bus/train station in haifa as i work nearby.

Anything else? Just ask me!

CouchSurfing Experience

Meeting new people is soooo much fun!
I love hosting, i love surfing, i love going to CS gatherings and arrange CS gatherings, and i generally enjoy this site alot.


Farming, Traveling, Fishing, Dancing, Going out, Partying and having lots of FUN!


– The essence of life is curiosity.

– In the end its not how many breaths you take, but how many times your breath was taken away.

Music, Movies, Books

anything goes. my lists of favorite books, favorite movies and favorite bands is too long to list here.

Types of People I enjoy

funny, easy-going, smiling, fun-to-be-with people are my kind of people.

Teach, Learn, Share

I wish to learn anything about farm-life.
I can teach stuff about farm-life, israel, hiking and computers.
But most of all, i want to meet new people, from different cultures, and learn about them.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Seen or Done

– Travelling to Alaska
– Hitchhiking from Anchorage, Alaska to San-Diago, California
– CouchSurfing all across South America
– Being arrested by the US border control after being mistaken to be a suicide bomber 🙂

It is with great honor that we call you a good friend. The best times during Burning Man were all with you. We miss you so much already. Will never forget seeing you cook “the bacon” in our first morning, a true show!! We are planning a “Round the World” trip and have included Tel Aviv as a major stop. We will also start planning a trip to Brazil and host about 40 people. It will be fun!!!

We love you mate!

Sep 4 Met in person Close Friend, Traveled 6 days


He is my soul mate! I love this man with all of my heart. He has to be one of the greatest person you could ever want to travel with. He walks around and he is magnetically attracted to spontaneity, fun, and amazing opportunities. Not only is he a big ball of fun he is considerate, hardworking, selfless and cares about those around him. He expresses himself freely and interrupts people constantly and blames his heritage on this annoying little trait of his. He creates community instantly around him. I am blessed to have had the opportunity to get to know him so intimately and I hope you a lucky enough to experience this beautiful spirit. I love you mi amore!

“Numero Cinco” is a spitfire and a half, whether he knows it or not! He’s smart as a whip and makes me laugh-a true gentleman whom I had the privilege of experiencing my first Burning Man with. I feel totally safe and comfortable when he is around, and I miss him! Robert-I think I still owe you some beers, and you can have my four other toes.

In one word, Robert is simply *Amazing*. He was the very first Couchsurfer I met at burning man this year. I found the camp because of him and we spent many precious moments together. Robert is a lover of life, a lover of people and a wonderful human. If there is any way in this world I can spend more time with him I will find a way. HE will make your life richer and more enjoyable if you have the possibility of meeting him. Robert is one of very favorite playa surfers. Dusty hugs to you my brother..
