About Me


See, Hear, Touch, Feel, Smell


I love to travel, meet new people, see the sights...
I like to feel, see, smell, hear, touch new cities, places, and perhaps people.
I like old and new buildings, the ambience and auras of a place. The little things that many overlook.
I especially like to try local flavours. I am very adventurous generally and specifically eating. I like to take risks.
Nature is one of my inspirations, and role models, so that should give you a good idea what I am like.
I take life lightly, enjoy it to the fullest, and like to have a good time.
It is the only life we got after all.
I have my own theory of travel. I prefer to travel light, with NO baggage at all...I get things as I travel, its a fun way to go...


Pretty much I am interested in everything.
Its all a matter of timing and showmanship.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I organised, and actively participated in a few events, being the first to organize the Budapest Board Games night), which is a lot of fun and held about every 2-3 weeks.


Many years offline experience, before the .com
I have also attended many events, and hosted a few people, and vice-versa.
You may add me on facebook, if you plan to get in touch, just drop me a mail, so I know who you are:


Traveling, photo, art, buildings, talking, good fun and wine, fun, games, new experiences, cultures, rituals, alchemy, life.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Quite a few, but if i write it down here, what will i tell all my CS friends?

Let this remain a mystery, and something to be shared between those who have yet to become my friends through CS...Perhaps we will share good stories over good food and wine, on a starry night, with a crisp fresh full moon, talking away till the dawn breaks..

Teach, Learn, Share

Riding the wave, and going with the flow kind of people.
