About Me


Travel the American Continent for a year.




Updated on 14th January 2015

I will be in India from May 2015 through June 2015. Then traveling to Istanbul Turkey.

If you want to meet up or hangout while I am in Mumbai and India, feel free to reach out to me. I love meeting locals, and travellers. Love having indepth conversations with people.

I will be soon embarking on a long journey of my life from mid June through next year. I will start from the USA-Mexico border by land and travel all the way to the tip of South America. Just by road, and sea. No planes. The Plan is to travel for a year or longer starting from the month of June 2015, and experience the life and culture, and learn.

Wanna join?


I love traveling, walking in the woods, eating, grilling, cooking, hiking, jogging, rock climbing, alpine climbing, exploring, scouting, wandering, dreaming, day dreaming, sleeping, lounging, hammocking, kayaking, conversing, listening, telling stories, collecting, photographing, planning, executing, supporting, etc.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


Be nice and be kind.

I give my surfers and hosts enough space although I grew in a cramped part of the world.

Have a good conversation and share some great stories.

No discrimination based on race or gender.


I hosted many folks and I also surfed many times. It has been a great experience so far.

I trust people instantly. Why there is any reason not to trust? I have hosted newbies who had no references, probably don't know how to use this website. They are probably not using this anymore but I welcome any person who approach me.


Coffee, Reading, Internet, Books, Music, Climbing, Hiking, Nature, Outdoors, Traveling and many more.

Currently I am learning to play Guitar. If you can teach me few chords then it's golden.

DSLR Photography, Climbing, Hiking, Exploring, Backpacking and Daydreaming.

Also meeting people. ;-)

Music, Movies & Books

I like watching documentaries, dramas and any movies with a strong subject and characters.

I like various kinds of music depending on my mood.

I like reading fictional and historical books. Recent read - Madam Bovary, Basic Christanity, Autobiography of Narendra Modi. Currently reading - Why soccer matters? by Pelle

One Amazing Thing I've Done

My first backpacking trip in Columbia gorge in the state of Oregon in the USA. It was fantastic. I learned so much about myself. It was a long hike with a huge pack on my back. The pint of beer and the burger tasted so delicious after the backpacking trip. It was a humble experience.

Paragliding! I did tandem paragliding in Pokhara. The view of Annapurna range is breathtaking. I would do it again.

Teach, Learn, Share

Teach and learn on how to be a better person.

I can also teach (or give you some tips) on how to walk on a slack line (tight rope).

What I Can Share With Hosts

Stories, and more stories.
