Wants to Meet Up

Join Couchsurfing to see Avinash Pratap’s full profile.
Living in Potsdam, Germany, studying masters of public management as Helmut Schmidt Scholar.
I like to run, climb, bike, hike- but broadly, I like to try range of activities. I am a social person and being around people excites and energises me. I studied Engineering but I work in the field of adventure and sustainability.
I love food, walks and talks.
To travellers: *Honestly, I don't care if you read my profile any further, If you need a place to sleep and I have an opportunity, I will be happy to invite you to stay with me. If you have space and energy and want to talk, get to know me and tell me about you- I would be happy but it is not a pre-requisite. When we are travelling, we are not always chatty, happy and open.*
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Originally, I signed up on Couchsurfing when I wanted to travel but I couldn't. By this way, I got to hear stories from travellers, feel inspired and imagine a life for me. Couchsurfing grew up on me and I made life long friends who I met through this platform. I seek deep conversation, understand meaning of life through perspective of others, try out different food, travel, laugh, dance with people from all walks of life- it helps me become tolerant and open to different ways of living. I also hope that in this process, I manage to give something back other than a bed to sleep on.
Travelling, meeting people sharing thoughts, learning new culture. Cooking from time to time and trying to clean up the world - all the time.
Music, Movies, and Books
Books: Into the Wild
Into Thin Air
On the Road
Movies: Almost anything and everything...
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
It was amazing for me to just sit all night and stare at sky full of stars. Or travelling for 7 weeks without knowing where am I going and when am I going to stop. Or starting a cycling expedition or a hike in similar fashion. All of this sounds amazing for me but don't know which one is that "ONE"
Ahh actually I know, last christmas, motorbike trip of 4800 kms from the north of India to southern most point of India.
Oh, recently, I cycled through Hungary, Serbia and North Macedonia for 11 days- it was fun.
Teach, Learn, Share
Learn: I want to learn more of the languages, history and culture of different places. May be some more of cooking than basic food. Or climbing, music.
Teach: My lanaguage, basic north Indian cooking. Can go on running, cycling, hiking. diving, walking...
Can share our secret walks around our place, knowledge about Non profits in India,
What I Can Share with Hosts
Stories and smiles...And food. Thats the best one.
