About Me

-------------Please go thru my profile before sending request to stay.-------------

I'll start with some famous quote of Rumi 👇
"You are not a drop in the ocean. You are the entire ocean, in a drop.”
“Don’t be satisfied with stories, how things have gone with others. Unfold your own myth.”
Do not feel lonely, the entire universe is inside you.”
"I know you’re tired but come, this is the way."
"For many, perfection will always be out of reach. But the road we travel towards our goals is often more important than our destination."

When I meet people in different parts of the world, I am always reminded that we are all basically alike: we are all human beings" ~ Tenzin Gyatso


If it's not easy for you to pronounce my name, simply call me "AVIE" (Pronounced as A-V)

Do you want to apply for E-Visa to Vietnam? (you can check on link if you are eligible to apply for e-visa). Do not get in the trap of any travel agents and waste money, apply officially on this Vietnam govt website:

Student of life, citizen of universe! Indian living in Hanoi, Vietnam since 5 plus years. I believe that sometimes journey is more beautiful than a destination..... and I love meeting peoples from planet earth and aliens are welcome too if they do exists somewhere, lol! I am an easy going, living life on fullest, love to meet like minded peoples and exchange views.
Carpe diem!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

1. A stranger is just a friend whom you've not met yet! So I love idea of meeting friends across the globe 🌍
2. An open world begins with an open mind and open home for peoples who wants to stay with you and willing to share ideas, cultures and much more!


Hangout with friends, walking, drinks, playing Billiards or Snooker, exploring new places, music, movies and Netflix (specially Docuseries) or reading in free times.
