About Me

CURRENT MISSION

We talk about falling in love as in falling in love with someone. But for a traveller, you fall in love with another city. The city has become your new love affair. And here you wonder… where will I fall in love with next?

ABOUT ME

I am a civil engineer who worked previously at the widest suspension bridge of the world and the longest suspension bridge of the world. I like psychology, philosophy, photography, cycling, swimming, weight lifting, eating, and drinking tea and coffee. I'm open minded, easy going, talkative, friendly, responsible, sociable, likes challenges.

I have been trying to fulfill my dreams since I was a kid. What I did like most till now is to travel and meeting new people. We are living in a huge world and it doesn't matter how much you traveled so far, it'll never be enough and the bad thing is time is so short to fulfill all the dreams.

PHILOSOPHY

Stoicism, Marcus Aurelius, Krishnamurti
