Join Couchsurfing to see Furqan’s full profile.
I am a travel junkie with already 20 countries under my belt. By profession I am an Engineer working in cutting edge sensor development for autonomous cars. I'm an open, relaxed, friendly and fun person with a love of people and also a love of our amazing planet and the spontaneity of adventure. Love to read, debate, exchange ideas and learn about new cultures. People have taken me into their homes more times than I can count. I have met wonderful people over the years. I love to travel. I will go anywhere at anytime and most if not all the time I travel solo. I love to just pick up and go with not a plan in the mix. I ask questions and joke around. I like to pick a persons brain to see how he/she thinks, views, opinions, thoughts. Sometimes it can be deep, other times it's just for fun, a combo of both.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
It's simple: What better way to visit a new place than to stay with a local!
Planning to travel around and meet new people and would also love to host them .
I like to connect with people from all walks of life and I cannot think of a better way to share the human experience than sharing insight into the unique ways we inhabit this planet .
Music, Movies, and Books
Music: Into everything Classic.
Movies: Godfather, Matrix,Spring Summer Fall Winter
Books: The Alchemist, The Prophet (Khalil Gibran)
I often find myself drawn to documentaries, sci-fi and dystopian comedy
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Travelled to 15+ Countries.
Walking through Vienna, Prague or Budapest and admiring the original building architecture was another amazing difference from how and where I grew up and what I saw and experienced.
Sounds simple, but we tend to overlook those only to look back at them with astonishment.
Teach, Learn, Share
I'll teach that we're all human and have some fairly simple similarities, aspirations in life, goals, experiences etc....but also different ones, which shouldn't make us dislike or distrust each other but should cherish the fact that we are different. Also can give very good travelling tips for Europe. I can also teach you how to cook delicious Asian food.
I like to hear peoples stories and hope to learn some from their experiences of other cultures. I also have an ever growing list of places to visit, camp, hotsprings and other adventure ideas that I would like to add to.
It would be great to share meals, music, stories and ideas
What I Can Share with Hosts
I have travelled widely, love to share life stories and help out. At the same time I'm independent , have realistic expectations of a host and happy to do my own thing.
I'm more than willing to help around the house, good at fixing mechanical problems and I am a competent cook and cleaner.
