About Me

VERY IMPORTANT: Read my profile and couch description. Plz...

CURRENT MISSION: started my travels on 27th July 2011 and been on the road ever since. A low budget traveler spending a month or two in each country, planing to live the rest of his life traveling and working here and there just to continue living and traveling.

ABOUT ME: Call me Mo. that is my nick name and everybody calls me so.

I am a 23 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 fro 8 months while i kept travelling atleast 2ce 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 will be 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 Innuit 85th Bday party, traditional Innuit dancing classes. great sea ice, stopped the ferry, making us to reroute, the great icebergs of Illulisiat and now what coems next is a mystery, a surprise yet to discover

Hitch Hiking Kilometer count in this trip : 70,553km by the 30th march 2015 Cycling Kilometer count in all long distance trips : 3548km by the 2nd July 2013

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.

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
