About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Exploring rest of Europe.

ABOUT ME

Into travel, random adventures, hiking, biking, anything new, interesting and stimulating.

I love watching a great deal of world cinema and listening to a wide range of music ranging from Psychedelic Rock, Rock N Roll, Blues, Jazz to Western Classical or Sufi music.

I enjoy reading philosophical, non-fiction, classic and biographical books.

PHILOSOPHY

Existentialism. Nihilism. Absurdism. Zen mindfulness. Stoicism.

"In the end you experience only yourself." (Nietzsche)

"If religion is only for Heaven, Patriotism for self-interest and Knowledge for Wealth, then I would like to be an Infidel, Traitor and Ignorant! - Khalil Gibran

"You are the books you read, the films you watch, the music you listen to, the people you meet, the dreams you have, the conversations you engage in. You are what you take from those.
You are the sound of ocean, the breath of fresh air, the brightest light and the darkest corner.
You are a collective of every experience you have ever had in your life.
You are every single day.
So drown yourself in a sea of knowledge and existence. Let the words run through your veins and let the colors fill your mind."--Anon

"There is a pleasure in the pathless woods;
There is a rapture on the lonely shore;
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar;
I love not man the less, but Nature more..." -- Lord Byron

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

So far, wonderful! Met some really nice people who have traveled and lived in various parts of the world. The amazing experiences they shared makes me wanna see the whole world through their eyes and have lasting bonds across the world. It's a small world, and you keep bumping into people if you are a traveler. The travelers I met in India I was able to meet them again while in Europe and Russia which made my travels memorable.

I observe people, I read, I learn. There are many things which interest me and I love to share them with the people I meet, may it be music, movies, TV shows, art, literature, philosophy, psychology, astronomy, history, current world affairs.
