About Me

CURRENT MISSION

A new world .. a new begining

ABOUT ME

Traveling is my passion....from a very young age I have been traveling a lot and mostly traveling alone. I love to travel alone and make new friend on the way. I still have a childish thrill about traveling. The idea of going to a new place gives me huge rush. Still I can’t sleep the night before I travel. I want to visit each and every country in the world. It is not always nature that attracts me, it is people. I love to study the differences and similarities among people from various parts of the world. Love to learn about their way of life, cooking and food habit, dressing habit, social structure, behavioral pattern, political outlook...everything.I would like to make friendship with people from all over the world. I try to help them every way I can if the are travelling to my country also I hope that they will help me when I visit their country.

PHILOSOPHY

Never refuse an invitation, never resist the unfamiliar, never cease to be polite, and never outstay your welcome

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

In every possible way...by hosting, by surfing (when I am traveling), by showing around my beautiful city, helping travelers in whatever ways I can..or just simply meeting them and share our travel experiences over a cup of coffee/drinks.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

At 17, I traveled alone to Western Europe and mostly stayed with local people through friends and references. It was a great experience for me. Therefore I couch surfed long before this beautiful site came into existence. I am so happy to be part of this site now.
