About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Spend quality time with friends and family in India.

ABOUT ME

I'm a curious traveller and explorer. I want my life to be a long travel. My desire is to travel around the world, dig interesting people, understand cultures, learn new languages, try regional food. This has currently brought me to Berlin straight from home. I like to try new things, be it sushi making at home, sailing a boat, go motorbiking in the Himlayas or hitchhiking in Iceland… and I have many interesting stories to tell!

PHILOSOPHY

Be grateful. Cultivate optimism. Avoid over-thinking & comparison. Be kind. Nurture social relationships. Forget. Forgive. Savor life's joys. Commit to goals. Practice spirituality. Take care of your body. Eat. Drink. Make Merry. Travel. Take it easy. Don't worry. Be happy. Go out of your way to make others happy.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Currently I don't have a couch to host people but that will soon change! I'm exploring Europe currently and would really appreciate being hosted.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Hosted and was hosted by some of the coolest people I've met. It's been absolutely fantastic so far!

Interests

Travelling is my greatest love. No, may be it's food. Argh, both! I'm a religious foodie and a passionate hobby cook. I love to cook for others and share the joy. I'm very much into photography too. I also like to have engaging conversations with interesting people. Beer is my favorite drink, well, so is coffee. I am passionate about my work just as much about my hobbies.

Music, Movies & Books

Pink Floyd, Sigur Rós
