About Me

CURRENT MISSION

ABOUT ME

I am a Pakistani born Spanish living and working in UK. Open minded, easy going, educated and friendly person. I speak many different languages and I have lived in many different countries for studies and work. Travelling and cooking is my passion and I like meeting new people and making new friends.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I hosted numbers of people and also surfed few couches. Mostly I organize cooking events in and around Europe. I call this kitchensurfing where I ask a Cs local member or a group if they do allow me to surf their kitchen where we can organize cooking events. We all have fun, building up friendships and share ours cooking skills and passion. I bring people together in my events and make friends.
