About Me

A boy who always dreamed of travelling but didn't know the way of doing it. But now the boy has clarity about life and started to explore the world.
Quit my Job and preparation of better future for Traveling, and this is the best decision of my life.

It was a random day, I was watching some random videos on YouTube, and somehow a video came in front of me, and that video has changed my whole life. Next day, I quit my old Life ( Job and MBA preparation) and decided to become a Traveller 😍😍😍
My philosophy on Travelling 😌😌
" Don't be a Tourist, Be a Traveller " 😋😋😎😎😎

One more thing that, I'm an Atheist who loves whole humanity, so everyone is equal for me.
Not a Blind believer of Karma, but believes in " What goes around comes around "

I also have started a YOUTUBE channel and Blog so that I can share my experiences with people.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I Love Travelling and Interacting with new people. CouchSurfing is the only place where I can find real travellers with unique experiences. With the help of CouchSurfing, I'm able to learn more about the culture of the different societies and Nation without even going there. ( It was the older perception)

But, now I think CouchSurfing is not only about hosting and surfing. It's about cultural diversity. I am meeting with people who are different from you and your tradition. Something, you learn from them and something, they learn from you. Every time I got hosted, My thought process become more open ( Breaking those Conservative thoughts ). CouchSurfing has taught me amazing things, and It has given me a lot of incredible experiences and for that, a big Thanks to CouchSurfing

Teach, Learn, Share

Teach :- Indian languages like Hindi, Punjabi. Recipes of Indian food & Knowledge of Indian Market in terms of marketing. If somebody wants to learn Badminton , I can help them coz I think I'm a good player 😜🤞🤞
Learn :- Different types of languages ,wants to know about the experiences of travelers which they have acquired during traveling.
Travelling has entirely changed my whole life, I can literally say that in just a span of six months, I have gained so much of incredible experiences and also learned a lot of things, like " People are going to help you, rather than to harm you ".

THE WORLD IS YOURS. 😎💙 Cut the crap out of life, Live the life which you always dreamed of, coz good time will never come until you make this time good.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I don't have any particular highly specialized skills, but one thing I can guarantee is that I can provide my little help in every kind of work. Because as an Indian, I have done almost every type of work at my home. We Indians born with these genes ;) In our local language, we call it " JUGAAD." 😜
So I can be a Cook, Story Teller, Photographer etc. you name it, and I will try to do it. 😊
Last but not least "I'll share my genuine experiences which I have acquired during my travelling" and if possible then a unique gift from my country 💙
