There is so much to Do and SO less time

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I host Couch surfers and take time to take them out for dinner or a drive around chennai . If I'm travelling I am more than happy to let them accompany me. I love travelling myself and I know how awesome it is to be hosted by a local and host friends from other countries. Its my way of giving back to the community.


I have couch surfed a few times but its always worth knowing the locals rather than spending in lavish hotel rooms (I actually can't afford sleeping in a hotel every night ;). But People are always nice and its good to meet new ones and getting to know a different side of life. I have done spiritual retreats, camping, trekking, exploring, partying dirty and crazy, almost every experience is awesome and different .

Teach, Learn, Share

Respect others, understand that "shit happens" , stop generalizing an entire group or place just because you've seen something once, ....and most of all - "IT ALWAYS HELPS TO ASK INSTEAD OF ASSUMING" ...crack a joke as it always breaks the ice and enjoy a joke when you're made fun of :)

What I Can Share with Hosts

Directions :) , Kitchen , bed, floor,house , great company and "space" if you want it. I travel a lot on work and vacations. I have a furnished house . I also have a domestic help who cooks, cleans and literally takes care of me and the house . So I am happy to let CSers use it, feel at home. I have a car and a bicycle. I can share the bicycle :P unless you want to dare driving on the indian roads.
