About Me

I love to travel. Like to know new cultures, people , places. I want to see world through the eyes of others. Experience the love. Finally want to learn how we all are the same.

Edit: Above is what I wrote years ago when I began the account here. Much have changed ever since. Haven't done much travel. Yet again at this point of time I have come across that old self, which still feels the urge to travel but is uncapable of doing so.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To get linked to the travel community . It is a great platform. Gives the opportunity to feel , experience the place, people etc deeply.

Edit: I see this as a possibility to meet those good souls, otherwise scattered around the world, in a more simple way.

Edit: Now I would say Waking life, Fight club and Silence. One taught me to love dreams and how fragile our realities are. Second taught me that however enlightened I may feel, I am just escaping from one 'sheep' life to the other. Third questioned me whether an ethical life is superior to moral life, whether being bad or good prevent as from doing what is right.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Everything's amazing. But still expect more.

Edit: I felt everything was amazing, falling into the subjective trap. It was worth living. But could have it been anything else? Now, looking back, I don't feel I have done anything remarkable. I am that middle child who haven't experienced nothing great; neither great joy nor great sorrow. Always have been in the no man's land, without able to be something or belong somewhere.

Teach, Learn, Share

I like to learn different languages. ,cultures etc. I can share my small beautiful travel stories, and many more.

Edit: I don't have much to share or teach, but obviously there is a lot that you possibly can. I wish I can be a good listener.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can give them a basic idea about Kerala. A rough plan. Also assist for a trip if I am free.

Edit: Can't host because I am still in a hostel. But I am definitely open to the idea of meeting and roaming around if I am free.
