Why I’m on Couchsurfing


In todays world hotels look all the same. Globalised, sleek, boring. You can actually mix up hotels rooms in Berlin, Las Vegas and Bangalore. All the same, superficial friendliness that just says "Leave you money here, and then f*** off". I believe travelling is an adventure, is meeting and interacting with people. Its learning about them and how they live and how they see the world. I like to share my world with people from around the globe.


Reading, Politics, garden 50 mi off the City (Green, home-grown veggies!) Sustainability, Technology, Cooking, Sports of all Sorts.

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies: "Lives of Others", "The Kings Speech", "Wall Street"...

Music: I have a very versatile taste. I like house music the same as a good Miles Davis or Benny Goodman tune.
Favourite: "The Lark Ascending" by Ralph Vaughn Williams.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Stood at the top of the Grand Mosque in New Dehli, been on an Evening Reception with the Indian Ambassador in Bangalore, stood at the top of the Empire State Building in New York, ate the best pide of the universe in a tiny village in Anatolia, hiked 20 mi through the Austrian alps with no blisters at all, partied like hell in Chengdu/China and walked on the banks of the mighty Yangtse in Wuhan. Its an amazing place, this world. Where do you want to go today?

Teach, Learn, Share

I am not sure what this is for :D. I will share more thoughtful things as I have made up my mind.
