About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To be with people and their cultures

ABOUT ME

### We are in USA with our family till August 10, then in Europe till 10 October 2015###
""" It is unfortunate that due to visa refusal, we could not go on BACKPACKING in 2014, as planned, a deviation in 7 years - a missed opportunity to meet more people around the world"""
Simple, Down to earth, fun loving couple, young at heart, honest, with a desire to know people, places of the world. Prefer to host Families, married couples, seniors during October-February, when we are in Hyderabad. We want our guests to be part of our family and hope they too do so.
Having retired, active and energetic, we use the opportunity of yearly visits to our sons in USA to move around places and meet people.

PHILOSOPHY

Smile at the world, the world smiles Back. Share with people and you will be surprised how they share back.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

We were introduced to the amazing world of sharing hospitality through 'Hospitality Club ' (balajiiraobk) then 'Couch Surfing' by 'Hajnalka', 'pballs' showed us how to travel light, choose the best way to explore the world. Most importantly it is the amazing people around the world opening their homes and hearts to us allowing us to feel the essence of culture, people.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Life is always young to explore

Teach, Learn, Share

1. To be a good host/guest. We have child like enthusiasm to learn and know about you and your country. We can share in learning your Cuisine and share our Hyderabadi Cuisine.
2. Most of the CS members are people with minimum resources with an ambition and enthusiasm to travel & know people from other cultures. Share what ever little you can with them. It is certainly not a place either for free lodging or boarding or services. The concept is divine, keep it alive.
