To try and see more of the world and meet new people- also start to host as many people as I can from across the world.
So what can I say about me? Gosh
Well at 17 I was shipped off to England by my parents who thought that it was the land of Academia( boy were they wrong). Grew up there for 10 years and then went to NYC and came to Colombo sometime ago on a holiday- and I am still here. 8 years down the time line Sri Lankan is now home again. I also seem to have got some friends who seem to have made it a mission to destroy my Liver. Apart from CS I have a Bathstore (kind of like everything from Coloured Loo roll to Whirpools).. I missed my travelling and travel stories so much and since I cant host everyone I started y own Hostel Chain (first in Sri Lanka ) .. so if your hosted by me you would also get to meet more travellers by joining me to the hostel … I think that's enough said about me. If you want to know anything more- ASK...
I hope to enjoy the simple things in life- which we forget. I believe in the power and importance of good and real friends..
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I try to host as many people as I can. unfortunately I have not been able to host as many people as I would like to. I think this is a great project and I would love to spend more time meeting and hanging out with other CS members sharing life and travel adventures.
What can be better than to go somewhere and meet the someone from the place, or have people come from all over the world and meet them..
I have met some incredible people via CS who I would have not met otherwise. However this also mean that my hours of sleep have drastically reduced (gosh I miss my sleep). I think the whole concept of CS is great... would love to show more people Sri Lanka.
Rather a wide range of interests. Traveling would be the obvious one. I used to play the Drums so im into music quite a bit. I enjoy cooking and most of all I love to have a good time- be it alone or with people.
Music, Movies, and Books
Lorenzo Carcatera & Daniel Silva are great.
Shantharam & White Tiger -two great books
Too many movies- from the Godfather type to the Dirty Dancing to more thought out movies.. Gosh movies are awesome.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
seen?= the Lake Palace in India, The Sydney Harbor, The Artificial Sea in Malaysia.. hmm too many.
Oh the eyes on my baby Chiara when I got her..(its my dog).
Teach, Learn, Share
Well I can teach a bit of international relations, management, drums, and I guess some Sri Lankan cooking (or European if your not from Europe)..and I can guarantee you a first class education into going out and having a bad hangover..
What I Can Share with Hosts
Travel stories of myself and friends, Info on Sri Lanka, Good food, Great nights out.
