About Me

Although I have always been fascinated by places far off, I don't believe in the nomadic traveling lifestyle (neither am I rich/skilled enough to carry it out) -- I simply don't think it would be fulfilling for me.

Having said that, I absolutely love travel, and daydreaming about things like Northern Lights or Morocco's bazaars is a regular part of my day.

I started traveling back in 2014, have had a fair share of adventure since then. Traveling solo is one more thing that I have caught on to. In past I have lived in hostels and Airbnbs, I found it didn't satiate my appetite.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To be able to meet local wherever I travel, so I can learn more about the places I visit, can peek into the local lifestyle and make new friends and add stories to my travels.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I think 'Amazing' is quite subjective, and as of now I haven't done anything to earn bragging rights amongst a team of professional travellers and enthusiasts.

One of my most memorable travel memory, however, is spending time in a snow-clad village in the French Alps, most of it by (and through) a beautiful and shallow brook.
