About Me

I am a post-graduate from Nepal, 26. I have lived in Nepal, India, Germany, the Netherlands, Spain, Italy, Slovenia, Slovakia, and now back in the Netherlands.

Interests surround science, art, and philosophy; experience working in disaster-recovery and climate change. Pretty chill to hang out with and quite adaptable.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Found a community on couchsurf on my stays across Europe; Love coming across locals (and fellow travellers).


A post-grad student in Engineering, hobbyist competitive chess player, and a (ex) humanitarian worker.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Bunjee Jump :)

Lived in five European countries in (hopefully the only) Covid year; (Mostly out of obligation)

Teach, Learn, Share

Teach: I could inspire you for your next life-changing Himalayan adventure :) Alternatively, I could share some insights on South Asian cultures and my Erasmus journey.

Learn: I always love locals coming up with stories about the places, especially when it is about their own experiences.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Deep conversations, hopefully; Not the best of cooks; Claims to be a good company for a laid-back chill outs xD

Edit: I would say my cooking skills have slightly improved since I last made an update to my CS profile. :)
