  • Russian Roulette Trip (8 Countries, 20 cities and 21 trains in 15 days!)

    2015 - 11.19
    Hey Folks,

    I was just able to take some time off work, which is the longest I was able to take since over 4 years! And decided to spend those 2 weeks backpacking Europe with my good friend and college colleague Tamer.

    Me and Tamer knew that we wanted to make the most out of those 2 weeks, by that we meant, visit the most countries, try the most cuisines and go crazy with all outdoor activities.
    For me, I also wanted to tick as many items as I could off my bucket list and catch up with my old European friends.

    The Schengen

    We started planning only 3 weeks in advance, first step was to apply for the EU Schengen visa
    I managed to get a visa appointment in the embassy of Spain in San Francisco, and Tamer got his in Switzerland’s in Cairo the day after.
    In order to pass the visa interview Tamer had to plan for the route, cities & countries that we intend on visiting. The plan seemed totally unrealistic and insane. We said let’s aim high and see how it goes from there.
    After then we had to show proof that we have hostel reservations, transportation method and flight tickets.
    Booking.com & hostelworld.com didn’t fail us in getting refundable reservations (Which we had to alter a bit and fix the dates after getting our visas) and for transportation, Eurail – Global Pass which was a bit pricey but it was the best thing ever! (Read on to know why).
    We got our visas, and we were ready to go!

    The Backpack

    At that point I was super pumped, my 26 years old dream is coming true. So it was time to prepare my hump.
    I ordered the JanSport Equinox 50 Pack, bought a waterproof nylon & down jacket which was very light, compact and warm in all places I visited, got a pair of Vibram 5 toe shoes that held up very well and were the best comfort for long walks (I’m talking about 15 miles a day!) also it brought me many interesting conversations with random people, and everybody was taking photos of my feet! A light microfiber towel (Remember: Hostels don’t provide towels), 4 short sleeve t-shirts, 1 hoodie, neck pillow (Very Important!) and a hydration bladder.

    Action time!

    My flight took off on the early chill morning of October 31st, from San Francisco, with a short layover in Chicago and then direct to our first destination, Madrid, Spain.
    November 1, 8 AM, I ticked my first item in my bucket list which is to visit Spain. Got off the airport to find my beautiful friend Lenbe waiting for me. We haven’t seen each other for 7 years after spending 2 weeks studying together in Cheltenham, England. I was so excited to see her after that long! Lenbe looked so tired since she celebrated hard a Halloween party that last night.
    After getting to Lenbe’s car, she pulled off her phone and opened a note saying (Shedo’s Visit) with tons of things she wanted to show me in the that short trip.
    She said, venga venga, we have no time to waste. So we starting by going to castles and walking along downtown Madrid and the old market.
    Later that day Tamer’s flight arrived so we met him at the metro station and headed to get lunch.

    Give me more Tapas!

    We headed to a very authentic restaurant serving Tapas. The restaurant offered a very cool dining area underground. And there I ticked another thing on my bucket list, which is to eat an exotic meat. We got Croquets of bulls tail (Croquetas de rabo de toro), potato tortilla, cheese.



    I have been always fascinated about the Spanish culture, art and music. So we ran to watch a flamenco show in one of the best flamenco dance bars in Madrid.
    After then Lenbe took us to her favorite drinks bar, the coolest I have ever been to, that has flying birds all around and offered excotic Hawaiian cocktails. Met up with Carlos & Ana, Lenbe’s awesome boyfriend and best friend respectively.
    Next day we had until noon in Madrid before our next train, so Lenbe welcomed us with traditional Spanish sweets and took us to new places like, Real Madrid stadium, had lunch at the earliest restaurant in the world started in 1725 called Restaurant Botin, ice cream at her favorite place on a rooftop and a lot more…

    Barca Barca…

    After warm goodbyes to my good friend Lenbe, we took our first train to our next destination, Barcelona.
    We decided to take the open bus tour in Barcelona since we knew there are many things to do in there and we only had one day. That was not a bad option at all.
    Next day we took the first TGV train ride  heading to Montpelier, France. That train goes up to 320 KM/H.

    Oh ma Macarons!

    Although it might not sound like a well known touristic attraction in France, but I loved it the most. Why? Cause it had a bakery shop very close to the train station that serves THE best Macarons I have ever had!
    We only had like 6 hours to spend there so we walked around, saw different parks and old buildings and tried different desserts and headed back to our next destination, the beautiful Nice, South France.

    Beach time!

    Although we were expecting cold weather and had heavy cloths on. We didn’t forget to bring our swimming suits! We rented a mini Renault car and drove along the French Riviera coast, swam in the gorgeous Monaco beach and visited Canne and then had dinner at Antibes.

    Who moved my Pizza!

    Our next train was heading to Genova, Italy. Visited main things over there, ate lotta Pizza, Crepes and delicious bakings. Then headed to Milano for like 6 hours, repeated the same thing. Then there was our last train to our final destination in Italy, Venice.

    Where did I put my Gondola?

    Venice, the love city. You feel the love in the air once you get off the train station. There we hopped into gondolas and ferries that take you to street addresses and houses literally on the river. We visited main attractions, ate my favorite Gelato of all time!
    Then we said goodbye to Italy, and hopped on the afternoon train going to Bern, Switzerland.

    Darn it! Did I just miss my train stop!

    By now, I got so comfortable taking trains. Those trains are so quite and make minor to no movements that only reminds you of your mother’s lap trying to get you to sleep! So the moment the train moves, I sleep like a baby! Magical… But, when you miss your train stop, things can get bad.
    And it happened, we missed Bern stop, so we were left with no other choice than getting off Lausanne or Basel. We decided to get off Basel, since it’s the capital and so we won’t sleep off the streets. Got off the next station only to find ourselves in Lausanne instead! And no trains back to Bern until the next day! Shoot!




    Facebook, my life!

    I started desperately going through my Facebook chat logs, and went through a conversation I had with my good friend & entrepreneur Louis, who we met in California. We both graduated from Draper University. I knew he lives in Switzerland, but where? I had no idea!
    I hit him up, and to my good fortune, he lived in Lausanne, 15 minutes away from the train station!
    So we met up, put our heavy backpacks in his lovely apartment, and he started showing us around Lausanne, which was actually a really nice city! We saw France from the other side and the great Alps mountain.
    After then we took the 5 AM to get back on track to the gorgeous Zermatt city.

    Hiking the Alps!

    10 AM, we finally reached Zermatt. Dropped our luggage at the train station, got a good breakfast / lunch, Swiss cheese and Italian Pasta.
    Then we took the next cable car heading to beginning of a long trail to the top of the Alps mountains.

    I know I’m ready when I’m not!

    We definitely didn’t wear any suitable hiking cloths nor shoes, so I brought 2 energy bars, light and of course no water!
    Began our trail, awesome 360° views, ice and snow on both sides, long trees and some wild animals.
    Sun started shinning, and I didn’t want to lose any body water. So took off my hoodie, and hiked half naked, which was also on my bucket list :P
    Reached the top in about 4 hours. Sun started getting down, temperature was dropping off very quickly so we decided to figure our way back.
    Stumbled upon a German old man, who guided us to the first quarter of the way back and then disappeared.
    Roads became so sloppy, icy and so slippery. It was impossible to stand up on both feet.
    Sun is down, almost pitch black, and the only 3 human beings we met didn’t want to even stop and help us.
    Thanks god, I melted some ice to drink water, energy bars and light were so handy too! We finally reached the bottom, and we were both so freaking sore!

    What did you just say? Jungfrau?

    After drinking tons of hot drinks, we hopped on the last train heading to Interlaken, another city in Switzerland which has beautiful scenery too, known for Jungfrau mountains area which is the heighest.
    Arrived there at the middle of the night, desperately looking for a hot shower and a bed to sleep.
    All hostels were closed so we had no choice than sleeping at an expensive hotel.
    Apparently this hotel was the only shelter for bed bugs in Switzerland, so I had another sleepless night, after giving away half of my blood to them!
    Next day hiked for a little bit, met the cutest cows, took the most scenic ferry ride I have ever been to and did I mention, Switzerland sells Cannabis extract Ice tea cans in all vending machines for 2.80€ ?!




    My cheese is on fire!

    Next stop was Basel, a little city in Switzerland that has borders with 3 countries. France, Germany and Switzerland.
    We ate the traditional Swiss cheese fondue, Rösti and had my all time best Mövenpick ice cream cone!

    The city of love.

    At that point we were done drifting diagonal at south Europe, so we began heading north. First stop was Paris, back to France.
    On France’s Armistice Day2 nights before the horrible bombing news all happened, we were lucky enough to visit the beautiful Eiffel Tower, Louvre Museum and watched the grand parade at the Arc de Triomphe.
    After goodbyes with our Oklahoma hostel’s super cool roommate Jennifer we headed further up to Lille, France and then to Brussels, Belguim. We spent couple of hours in each wandering around the main attractions beside the train station. Then were too excited not to miss our next destination, Amsterdam, Holland.



    Get me high!

    Drugs and sex, are so mainstream in Amsterdam. Our hostel was right in the middle of the Red Light district. Which is one of the main ‘attractions’ of Amsterdam. All men pushing their hands into their jacket’s pocket, all women looking to the ground whining how cheap that is. We enjoyed very much the hot French Fries offered by plenty of street shops.
    Next day we spent half day seeing other main attractions over there.

    Döner addict!

    Tamer’s last stop, was coming next. His visa got issued for only 12 days so he had to leave 2 days earlier than me.
    We arrived Berlin, Germany at around 8 PM. Rented a car from the train station. Then I hit up my good old friend and great iOS developer Mohamed Fouad. Last time I stumbled upon Fouad was about 2 years ago in Istanbul, Turkey. Kindly enough he offered us a quick tour in Berlin, and stay at his big room along with his awesome roommate Mohamed Salah. We also met up with our colleague Hassan who just moved to work in Berlin.
    We ate a lot of Döner, the best I ever had! Drove past Berlin Wall, and couple of main attraction and a park.

    Evernote Camera Roll 20151119 022844

    Could you please drive faster!

    Next day, Salah got us a great breakfast then accompanied us to the Berlin Wall and then it was getting close to Tamer’s flight. Of course we didn’t want to miss putting our car’s engine to it’s limits and drive by the no speed limit highway Autobahn‌. I hit 206 KM/H.
    Evernote Camera Roll 20151119 022742

    Spin the wheel!

    Tamer has left me on my own for the next two days, had to figure out where my next journey should be. Decided to visit a new country that speaks new language and has a different currency. Prague, Czech Republic was it!
    Arrived the coolest hostel ever, called One Home. Everyone was sitting on one table having a home made complimentary dinner, and was offered to have a seat and join the conversation.
    Evernote Camera Roll 20151119 022912

    Trdelník Orgasm!

    Dropped my backpack and got off to look around Prague’s main interest point. Started with the old town square. There I was welcomed with Trdelník. My mouth waters when I try to explain it to anybody.
    Basically it’s a crispy rolled dough pastry coated with sugar and cinnamon from outside and filled with Nutella chocolate from the inside. Enough said!
    I then walked to the Charles Bridge, Prague Castle and Beer Garden. It was about 1 AM when I got followed by a creep, so had to run back and call it a night.
    Evernote Camera Roll 20151119 022442
    Evernote Camera Roll 20151119 0224422

    Let’s party hard!

    Woke up the next day to one more Trdelník and more wandering, ending it up at a beautiful swan river.
    Then took my first cross country bus to my final destination. Munich, Germany. Visiting Englischer Garten Park, Marienplatz and Deutsches Museum.
    By then it was the end of my awesome Europe backpacking trip, totally exhausted but accomplished.

    5 Reasons You Should Invest In Joining Draper University of Heroes

    2014 - 10.13

    Are you hesitating about attending Draper University? Not sure it’s the right time yet? Not sure it’s the best fit? Running low on cash?


    Although it has been couple of months since I graduated from Draper University of Heroes in the Summer 2014 class, I’m still reeling from zillions of thoughts and feelings, and I cannot begin to put a value on the amazing experience I had there.


    In my opinion, here are 5 reasons you should invest in joining Draper University of Heroes:


    1. You have a Billion-Dollar idea.

    I was once told that “An idea is worth nothing more than the paper it was written on.” If you have a business idea that you think might have great market potential, you need to talk about it. You need to write a business plan. You need to find good partners. You need to develop a prototype. You need to interview your potential early adopters. And that’s only a few to mention.

    Being a Draper University student/alumni gives you the ultimate entrepreneurship platform and a network of bright thinkers, innovators of the current and future, as well as top Silicon Valley VCs. It gives you the chance to pitch your idea(s) daily, get feedback, iterate (and reiterate), until you hit the real ‘big’ thing that people are really looking for.


    1. Your startup just got funded.

    Congratulations! You just began the journey of entrepreneurship. But before you get so excited, please do yourself and your startup a favour by learning how to hire the best talent, how to manage a team, and how to keep ideas flowing. As I once read in the “The Creative Confidence” book, you need to train your creative muscle to bring you up with creative ideas. That makes your startup stand out from the crowd.

    At Draper University, you get to do creative activities almost daily, you get to work in teams to make big achievements. You listen to other startup founders’ success/failure stories. You acquire, analyse, and filter ideas, then apply them in your own startup.


    1. Youre already running a small startup.

    Well perfect, then you should be looking for bigger business leads, to raise more money, or even getting acquired by one of the millionaires of Silicon Valley! Dreaming is one way of achieving good results, but Doing is something else. If you want to get once in a lifetime opportunities to meet people like Elon Musk, Naveen Jain, and Dave McClure, then Draper University is place for you. It is the one collective option where you get all those opportunities at once.


    1. Youre a software developer; you don’t do business!

    Do you know that there’s a constant need for software developers in Silicon Valley? Do you know that nowadays most startups and even well known corporates were founded by technical founders?

    At Draper University, you’ll meet people from a wide variety of backgrounds, from Finance, Business, and Law, to Medicine, Bioinformatics, and Science. You’ll have the great potential to explore different business opportunities, make like-minded friends, and most important of all, maybe even become the next Mark Zuckerberg or Steve Jobs.


    1. Okay, youre convinced, but youre running low on cash.

    Draper University offers a broad number of scholarships as well as different payment options and financial aid. That should keep you away from the burden of saving lots of money to pay for the tuition.

    Another plus to think about: you might end up raising some good money for your startup :)

    5 weeks of heaven at Draper University of Heroes!

    2014 - 09.01

    Dear Fellow Readers,

    As I promised in my past blog post, I will be talking about my experience at Draper University in more detail.

    In the past five and a half weeks as a student in the DU Summer 2014 Class, I can proudly say that I have done over 20 different things that I had never done before! Some of things included: graffiti painting, go-karting, and approaching random people in the street to get a job.

    The activities that I participated in at Draper University were geared towards challenging you to move beyond your comfort zone. Read on to find out about those activities:

    Our very first assignment was to write a bucket list of 101 items that we wanted to achieve in our life. This was a great exercise because it helps you think about why you were put on Earth, as well as the biggest priorities in your life.


    The next day, we were assigned to our teams. No one knows how the teams are decided, but I think it had to do with the Belbin Assessment test that we took earlier that tells you what type of team member you are. My team consisted of (left to right) me, Erin, Nick, Cival, & Vicky. I’m lucky to be part of this team because everyone was super talented.


    Then we were asked to go on our first outdoor team bonding activity: a scavenger hunt. We had to go explore the city of San Mateo, but there was a twist. You’ll have to come to Draper University to find out what that twist is. Just kidding. We had to take photos with eccentric people, search for old stamps, make bargains, and take a crazy video of the team dancing in the street. Watch it here: Dancing Video

    Next week’s theme was Creativity. Yes! I did this graffiti drawing. Well, part of it :). We learned the history of graffiti painting and got an overview of great graffiti painters in history. We also spray painted the whole wall with a line from Draper University’s Superhero Oath: “I’ll promote freedom at all costs.”


    When the first weekend came, I thought we would get some rest. Nope. Didn’t happen. We had to work hard during the weekend to prepare and deliver a pitch (and an MVP) for the first Draper University Hackathon. The hackathon was themed around world problems, including education, healthcare, government, currency & power.  I teamed up with this incredible team of Sarah (China), Liza (Mexico) & Fay (China). Our idea was based on Liza’s startup back in Mexico: an iPhone app that enables the camera phone to analyze, process & diagnose cancer cells from a microscope. We had a great presentation and working demo. Interesting stuff huh?


    The next day we were asked to do an Egg Drop Challenge. And yes, it’s as messy as it sounds! We had one night to think about how to drop an egg from the rooftop of the 8th floor of the Draper University building. We were supposed to use as few items as possible. Here are some of the parts we were allowed to use:

    – Straws

    – Plastic Bags

    – Condoms!

    – Tape

    – Cups

    It was amazing to see all the different variations concocted by everyone.


    Next weekend we did something completely new: we went go-karting. Got an adrenaline rush? Those karts were really fast! We had a chance to drive the small karts and drive like a professional track for 8 laps. Competing with each other was so fun!


    Bottom Line

    As fun as Draper University may seem, it is a serious entrepreneurship program too. Two to three speakers came to present everyday. We had to give speeches about various hands-on topics. We had to do weekly assignments and daily presentations (solo and with your team). Along the way, you incrementally build up a business plan while getting help from mentors in various fields. On the final day of the program, we had the opportunity to pitch our business plan to a panel of 30+ investors. Overall, this was one of the best experiences in my life. Thank you Draper University for making this happen!

    Beyond the fear, exploring the world with gusto & enthusiasm!

    2014 - 08.19

    Howdy readers, it has been a while since I ever blogged.

    This summer I was on a mission to explore & disrupt Silicon Valley. Read on to find out about my tale on how I got started at Draper University of Heroes.

    I was so excited once I received my acceptance letter to the Draper program. I promised myself that this experience would be an unforgettable life changing experience. Here is what I did to get started. First, I quit my full time job after my start up in Egypt got funded. Second, I booked a ticket to fly off to the what’s called the center of entrepreneurship… Silicon Valley.

    I arrived on June 20th in San Mateo (where Draper University is located)… two days before the program officially started. Unfortunately, the program didn’t start so I was left with no place to stay so I had to figure something out. I thought to myself… “Should I rent a hotel? Should I hostel? Should I spend the night on the streets?”
    I considered all of these thoughts but a hotel was too expensive and all hostels were booked. As for living on the streets? Too cold. I left Egypt when it was 33 Celsius only to find San Mateo to be 15 Celsius! There is no way I could spend the night on the street.

    I thought to myself. There had to be another way. I put my mind on hyperdrive. A Tesla whizzes by me while I walked down the street by the coffee house. Ah-ha.
    I am going to rent a car and live in it.

    I spent the first night in my sweet Hyundai Elantra. The following morning, I woke up and decided that I am going to venture on and explore the city of San Francisco but… where will I go?

    I wrote down a list of places that I wanted to visit and spent the day visiting the Computer History Museum, Google HQ, Microsoft HQ, Apple HQ, Intel Museum and the NASA Museum.

    The following day I arrived at Draper University. I knew that being surrounded by a group of top-notch very smart people (39 in total) would make this a special experience. People came from all parts of the globe and had diverse backgrounds. Mechanical engineers, graphic designers, software engineers, finance & law. Although we had such diverse backgrounds, our enthusiasm for starting our own companies immediately bonded together. The diversity was just the right combination to promote intellectual growth and foster together life long friends.

    On the first day, we were all welcomed by Tim Draper personally. I can’t forget his wide smile. His cheerfulness and his ability to recite each of our names.
    Classes started right away. I liked that everything learned favored practicality over theory. Speakers came in everyday. On average, 3-4 speakers came to speak to us. The backgrounds of the speakers were diverse. I am in paradise. This is where I am meant to be. This is my new home.

    Stay tuned for my next blog post, having some insights of our crazy activities that we do here over Draper University of Heroes.

    With gusto & enthusiasm!

    My interview at Sarmady – A Vodafone Company

    2011 - 09.22
    Howdy People :)
    Loooong time eh? I’ve been really busy lately doing my military service..
    Anyway I’ve intended to blog about my interview at Sarmady – A Vodafone Company. I know I know it has been more than a year now, but I’ve found a text note on my old laptop having those interview questions, so I asked myself why not to share them now =)
    Interview at Sarmady, was basically in 4 phases:-
    Phase 1 (Technical Written Interview):
    Written on a single A4 paper those questions:
    • Difference between Queue and stack
    • Difference between hashtable and array
    • Difference between malloc and new (keywords)?
    typedef struct{
    long date;
    char* name;
    } Actions;
    • Sort the above struct (in a form of Linked List) by date through code or drawing
    I was really worried, because the other candidate wrote much on his paper! I though it was kind of fail for me! :D
    Phase 2 (Technical Oral Interview):
    Next, I met iOS Team Leader – Ahmed Essam. He interviewed me for almost 30 mins asking some technical questions:
    • Define pointer to functions? What is callback?
    • Difference between outer join and inner join SQL statements
    • Why are Design Patterns used? Define Delegation Pattern?
    • How to prevent different processes from accessing the same file at the same time? Mutex, Semaphore.
    • What’s a web service? What’s the difference between SOAP and REST?
    • Talk about your graduation project.
    Phase 3 (Assignment):
    After then, Ahmed Essam asked me to choose one of two assignment projects that can be written under any preferable programming language:
    1. Flickr Image Viewer and Search.
    2. Twitter Client.
    I chose the second Twitter client project, and have successfully submitted SewSew – Twitter Client under WCF, in 2/3 days I remember.
    Phase 4 (HR Meeting):
    It was a very simple meeting with the CTO – Samia Gamal, Mobile Apps. Manager – Ramez Mohamed & HR Manager – Harrison Austins.
    I remember I’ve been asked very general questions about my previous projects, my vision, and how do I find mobile applications interesting and most importantly talking about my GP (Graduation Project).
    I’ve then received an email from Harrison, saying that I’ve been accepted to join Sarmady’s team! =) Hooray ;)
    My Opinion about 6 months working @ Sarmady:
    Shortly – I literally enjoyed every moment I spent there.  I learnt a lot, more than you could imagine! I made lot of friends and contacts (although I was the youngest in there). I’ve been engaged with mobile developers community in the region. Also I’ve attended couple of meetings & seminars..
    Wish you all best of luck in your career ;-)
