  • About Tarik8827:

    I'm in my senior year of college and not really sure what I want to do with my life. The only thing I'm 100% sure of is that I don't want to go to graduate school right out of college and I don't want to stay at home. While I wouldn't mind working, I really want to do either intensive language or travel as much of the world as I can for 1-2 years and then see where that leaves me in my life. I'd like to do a more extended stay in an Arabic speaking country to I can really move into fluency. I've grown up speaking Arabic in addition to English all my life, but having a chance to kick my accent would be awesome. Oh and I love the guitar so as well so I know I'll have something to do wherever and whenever I go.

Travel Help


My parents are originally from Egypt and I go back about every other summer to visit my extended family. I've taken numerous friends with me throughout the years and given all of them tours around most of Egypt. I guess the ways I can help the best are by giving out the itinerary I use when I take people with me on visits to Egypt and by putting you in contact with certain guides I know in places like Cairo and Alexandria that could take you on a full day tour of the city in a personal car for a decent price. I can also give my personal opinions about which sites are worth making treks to and which ones aren't if you'd like.
