About Me

The first thing I will look for on a trip is the local food and the ancients. To me, experience the authentication of local cuisine and visit the historical site can create many interaction in traveling, it such the best way to find out the local’s culture and characteristic of a visited place. In a good vein, I can cook some kind of dishes that I’ve learned from my mother, but I’m not an expert one.

Solo-traveling is my kind of meditation. To get lost and find some unexpected things is one of my pleasure. Even though I love to meet many people, it doesn’t mean that I’m a party person. Sometimes, I prefer to avoid hustle, just have some coffee and relaxing conversation.

I treat everyone equally, no matter who you are and where you are from. Racist people are not into my circle.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love hospitality exchange! I love to share the hospitality of my hometown! I love to experience the others’ kind of hospitality! And I love to meet new people! Couchsurfing is the right place for all of those things...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Stay and help people voluntarily in Aashray Care Home Jaipur, an amazing house for the orphan children whose born with HIV and rejected from the society because of discrimination or the death of their parents. I really miss the kids there and can’t stop thinking about them... :(
