About Me

Hi - Namaste :), A middle class Indian family guy knows it well that Life takes you to different places for work in India and I feel thats also a part of travel in our lives :). I am ABHINAV from a small city in India called Ranchi(East India)-then worked/travelled in/around Delhi (North India)-and Currently working/travelling in/around Bangalore(South India), so I call all of them my work cum travel destination as my exploration is On :). As a person I am a easy going, simple, polite, caring and Super friendly. A bit of Yoga is also what I like. I feel blessed helping someone during their travel to my country, so that they appericate us on the good than cursing us on the Bad.
Professionally into Advertising -Media and working for Lufthansa German Airline . A Nature love and a hard core motorbike traveller. Mountains are my favorite destination so if i am not in office search me around the Himalayan ranges of North India.
My big time hobby is motorbike tour anywhere in the Himalayas which i do once a year. Have done it with some foreign travellers too in the past who visited my country,the trip is friendly and in a non tourist way which means an itinerary not fixed or imposed on you so is much more fun, raw with a taste of adventure and thats what all of us want. I call it "myadventureride" which transforms into yours if you travel along. My Inclination towards Buddhism also pushes me to do it as it's Devine .
I promote travellers to visit those untouched and adventurous destinations around India as it's beautiful for people having the same mindset . I feel the North East India, Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand and Jammu and Kashimr are devine high mountain destinations which should be done by everyone if you have an inclination to witness raw nature.
Doing innovative stuff is my passion which is mostly around motorbikes and have put some ideas into reality through some of my motorbike customization.I am inquisitive if the discussion is about motorbike.
I am also into a community building called "mywkendride"...Bangalore which is for like minded friends/travellers who are willing to go for short one day motorbike ride in a group around the city of Bangalore on early morning of a Week end, Its Non Commercial ride to break free from the regular mundane work life and visit places around and enjoy with people from all walks of life.Its open for both Male and Female Riders and people/expats without a motorbikes can join as pillion(back Seat) on others motorbike.Its mostly to Destinations within a bracket of 25km to 150km around the city which takes a time frame of 2 to 9hrs of Travel...Ride...Relax...Eat....Rejuvenate with safe and sensible riding.
So you can join the community anytime. {https://www.facebook.com/mywkendride} or MyWkendride on CS.
It would sound funny but I was in a transitation phase since last three months to put on weight(eating a lot) for a change in life and now trying to be back on shape :)) through excercise and Yoga :)))...
So 3months are over and had made it to 95kgs from 80kg......now getting back to shape is on since a couple of wk:)))....lets c how it goes on to be 80kgs again :))))
Not so close to Hard Alcohol and Smoking but I think people have there own choice.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

FRIENDSHIP AND HELP-Everyone is different In nature and are a gift of God, so most important meet them, learn the good from them and make millions of friends across the globe.
Secondly,To help fellow travelers coming to India so that they take back good memories from my country.
Socialize,meet people from different culture share experience......Travel with a companion on my motorbike if time permits.
Want to meet hard core travellers as it actually keeps you going/motivated for your next trip and it helps you learn a lot from them for your next trip to happen in ease.

Life is short live it hard is my moto.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Most important : Have made some really good friends across the globe and I feel blessed and is the most amazing thing in life :).
Can't stop on One :)Secondly, Once quite my job just to travel for a couple of months on my motorbike.
Have ridden Solo to most parts of India and Nepal on my motorbike and was an awesome experience exploring different cultures and heritage of my own country as well as Nepal. Still some cities are pending in the list which i might travel soon.
All my Royal Enfield motorbikes have clipped more than 1Lc Kms.(Thanks to the machine which helped me travel).
4times Solo Riding to Leh-Ladakh since 2008 and Once to Lahaul Spiti touching the border areas of Pakistan, Tibet and China.(Thanks to the Army for granting permission).
5 time to Leh-Ladakh and Once Lahaul Spiti with fellow travelers from other countries and showing them a different world in the Himalayas on a non tourist way with hard core adventure on motorcycle which I call as myadventureride:).

Teach, Learn, Share

Teach :Anything that you don't know but i know.
Learn :Anything that you know but i Don't.
Share :My thoughts on riding in India specially when you are solo to different cities.... some safety tips for fellow travelers, share my ride and come as companion on trips around India.North and South India is very different so can help/share my experiences to make it an ease.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Rear Seat of my motorbike for a ride and lots of talking. Delicious street food in India as i love it and would like you to taste it aswell :).Mostly get bored when not at work so ping me if you want to catchup for coffee or a short spin on my motorbike around the city. This is sharing our travellogs and making cheerful memories.
Secondly,I can just help if i can.Ideas on travel, safety measures to be taken specially for foreign travellers. (As most people think India is unsafe but actually its not if you are conscious while you travel).
Information if needed about destinations in India or maybe travel along if on leave.

Countries I’ve Visited

Bhutan, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Thailand
