Current travel partner: www.couchsurfing.com/people/
ABOUT ME: Call me Mo. that is my nick name and everybody calls me so.
I am a 24 year old Halfie (born to Indian Mom and French dad, brought up in the French colonial part of India), backpacker, Travel addict, Atheist (maybe SBNR), Ascetic, Anti-statist, Vagabond, nature loving, artistic, charismatic, creative, extrovert, gregarious, understanding, compassionate & upbeat. On the bad side talkative, impulsive, honest, straight forward, devious, selfish, untidy & maybe silly. I am aware of who I am & how I behave. There are times when I am wrong and I do not feel ashamed to appologize.
I was too impatient in everything which is why I was an early start. Started my very first Business at 17, but had to wait until turned 18 so that I could do it legally. Finshied unversity at 20. Came to Paris to visit my dad and settle down, but I just traveled with friends here and there. I moved to UK for 2-month internship. Immedialtely after that I cycled 2408kms from London to Glasgow. I could not continue the trips as my bicycle broke down and i was out of money. Moved to london and based there for 8 months while i kept travelling atleast 2wce a month. then one day i watched "Into the wild" Movie and decided to sell everything and go backpacking in Dec 2012. I did varety of things from treking, hitchhiking, cycling, festival traveling etc. i was robbed in Lithuania. With 8 euros I survived 30 days traveling back to my village in France. I worked for month then traveled again. Again I worked in Ski station until January and left for traveling. fell in love with a girl & traveled with her for 6 months and we broke up in the "Tunnel of Love" How ironic. I continued traveling alone for a month, but it was too hard so I returned to UK in September 2014. visiting my parents whom i did not met in more than 2 years. then came to Iceland which was my 50th Cultures (i like the word Culture than Country as it does not talks about boundaries) i have succesfully manage to stay in one city for 3 months working in guesthouse as a manager) a big achievement for me) .then I flew to greenland.... Experianced a Innuit's 85th Bday party, attended traditional Innuit dancing classes. Crossed the great sea ice stopped by the ferry, making us to reroute, saw the great icebergs of Illulisiat break down, climbed my first overhanging frozen waterfall, sledding, snowmobiling, sitting with the cockpit with pilots in air greenland passenger plane. Flew to.USA road tripped to.Kentucky for some.fried.chicken and saw niagra falls from both sides then went to lake superior, 800km hitchhike and 80kms cycling. Owing to series of bad luck in Canada, I decided to.go home and So I bought a ticket but later decided to fuck the ticket and go.to.Mexico instead so I lost 450dollars on my stupidity and I have some money left with a.friend who.is barely available online so heading out without a.single.penny literally to USA. met my old friends in colorado and did lot fo climbing then hitchhiked all the way to mexican border single ride. and hithched around all the way to southern chiapas where i found my dream horse "Feliz" a 2 year old stalion, left brained introvert, grew up in mountains and partly trained, very calm and playful. currently travellign with my horse without a penny in my hand, yet hoping to find some jobs at touristic places, o fund the road. going around slowly through all latin america. yes all the way to patagonia.
So after 700kms on horse, almost reached guatemala border, but need extra paperworks to bring animals, which requires money, quite a lot. So i left feliz in a farm near the border and i am flying back to franve on 25th september to work and save money, i will return to continue my trip on horse.... meanwhile hanging around sancristobal....

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Hosting: I host whenever I can, I have hosted 500 + people so far, and 7 in my tent
Surfing: I don't surf a lot than I used to, because i am traveling day and day out and surfing everyday at someone's house is difficult, as i have to be polite and wake up at particular time etc etc. so I surf only once a week or twice, Main reasons include Hot Shower, Laundry, somebody interesting to talk to.
I don't use your place as free hostel, So I would cook and clean, keep myself tidy and I do understand that my host does have a life. I do not seek more than what is offered.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Well of so many things i've done in this physical world, from owing a business at 18, buying a house in london at 20, sold back the house i bought to backpack around the world at 20 and then, seen so many natural wonders from northern lights, iceclimbing 200kms south of northpole, staying with innuits and mayan decendants in mexico, and so many countries at the age of 24.
Of all these things, the best is, being able to live completely at the present, irrespective of the past or future. Thanks to my spirtual awakening i had from my near death experiance from avalanche. Followed my inner voice and discovered my destiny. Now i am a very different person, that i can barely relate to anyone i have known met or heard of, some say those are what buddists strive for, or path to enlightment. Whatever it is, i am a different person and alone in my way. And would like to connect with others wjo have same experiance, i know that i am not alone, there are others too....and its not that its a must, i enjoy being myself, being unique, as i dont have any problems of anxiety, fear,or depression or anything that normally many of us have. The best of being so is that i can say that my life is awesomenand perfect even at the shittiest time. I mean anytime. I am one with myself.... anyoneone feels the same way? Would love to hear from you..write me

What I Can Share with Hosts
Well I Volunteering in a Guesthouse Downtown Reykjavik and I cannot host anyone (rules!)
However I want to Help other travelers too! what I might be able to offer you is a Private Room for a price cheaper than any of the hostel's Dormitory in Downtown Reykjavik. Instead of sleeping with 8 different people you will have the room all for yourself. 2 min walk to the big church and 1 min walk to Main Street of Reykjavik Center.
I might be able to lend you my Sleeping bag or Crampons (if you Ice climb) or any local advice about what can be done etc.
And I am always happy to meet other travelers for a coffee or a drink
