Join Couchsurfing to see David’s full profile.
I go by the name Deb/ Debaa as well. :)
Living in Bangalore these days.
I have traveled in South America ( Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia) for more than a year, and my Spanish is pretty good.
I have lived in Utah and Missouri for a couple of years.
I love to meet people, and I can definitely meet up and show you around, share stories.
Aspiring writer. Recently finished writing my first novel. Looking for literary agents and publishers in the USA. If you have any insights, feel free to drop me a text.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I believe that the world reveals its great colors to you once you open your eyes to see 'em.
In the same light, I open my heart so that I can meet, like and befriend the amazing people there are- with their heart-warming stories about being loved and lost, of light and darkness, of trivial pursuits and wonderful journeys. I usually like a guest to stay for 2/3 nights at least, so that we have a genuine chance to know each other. Same goes when I am trying to surf.
Reading and Writing: I read a lot, esp classics and literary work. I occasionally write. A few of my short stories have been published. This is a link to one of my flash fiction pieces.
Tennis, Ping-pong, badminton, chess, carrom and card games.
Chinese food; Indian food; Mexican food; Italian food;
Talking about Game of Thrones;

Teach, Learn, Share
I can help you plan your trip in India( esp north India and east India, ashrams) and in USA( the west coast, national parks), and South America. I can give you tips about setting up a brand new website. I can teach you how to cook an authentic Indian dish.
I am working on a website for visa articles. If you could write one of your experiences, it would be very useful.

Cook for them; share a nice travel experience; a small gift. It all depends on how much time we have.
