About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Live, Love, Laugh

ABOUT ME

Love simplicity. Love life. Love to laugh. Love to travel, learn about people, culture and history. Love music, art and outdoor activities. Love animals, wild life and nature. Like to talk and love to listen. Quiet at times, loud at times. Dislike routines. Love spontaneity. Never put a full stop to everything, mostly question marks. And I found home not in places, but in people.

PHILOSOPHY

- It takes getting everything that you've ever wanted and losing it, to know what
true freedom is.

- The only time you can find yourself, is when you're lost;
the only time you can be brave, is when you're afraid.

- We're all broken, that's how the light gets in.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

The highlights of my trips have always been the people I met along the road.
