Join Couchsurfing to see Gobi’s full profile.
IMPORTANT: I host in Colombo and also in Batticaloa. Depending on where I am in the moment.
M Gobi, Sri Lanka. was studying in Bangalore, India. Computer science. Living in Batticaloa, Sri Lanka.
Right now I'm working as a IT admin in Batticaloa / Colombo, also freelancer (Web Apps, Websites Develop, Logo Designs & Digital Marketing) and part time lecturer.
I like to make real true friends from abroad. So! I just prefer who wants to stay for long time here, coz many people just visit in my home for only 1 night / 1 night / 1 day. This is not enough to learn/know our culture also we can't be real friends. and m not comfortable for 1 day stays. I agreed It's not possible who are coming here for short time vacation. I'm Sorry For that. But Many hotel people or related to tourism people use this CS. But M not related to any tourism. I'm local, living here, and it's my own living home. So you will definitely get real feeling of sri lankan culture. You should understand this. coz CS is amazing concept and You have to find a real people to stay so you will get the real experience.
Why I actually looking a friend from western?
I love really their culture and country and all things from there. My dream to live there. but as a Sri lankan and Asian m not able to go there. it's not easy to get visa for me. But as my education and my profession, I should not be in sri lanka. coz this is not a place to me. coz m a Software developer. Here no life for software eng. It's okay however I get projects from Europe sometimes. but live here and work for them. But its hard
So! At least I can meet western people from this and make friendship with them. I'm married. I prefer long stay one. I Just said my wishes.
And except that can help you for any local needs. You can feel my home like your own home here. I'm living with my mom and two brothers and It's my own home and we will make Sri lankan food for you! or you can use our kitchen if not comfortable our food. But better try our food :) and it will be safe place (For Female solo Travelers) you can read my previous guest. I will provide you one room with attached bathroom. Two can stay but better for single. and what else? :)
Above said about Batticaloa home only. Me and my wife living in Colombo.
I think I said all. Sorry if my English have grammatical mistakes :P I can speak English well! Don't worry. coz I Studied and grew up in Bangalore
(Note: Many Sri Lankans don't speak English well and doesn't know swim). Just for knowledge, who gonna visit sri lanka :)
Special Note from April 2022 : Sri Lanka is facing economic crisis. All goods prices are within a month increased 3-5 times more. So, who want to visit here, Please pay us some food money and petrol charges. Before, I never asked even 1 rupee money. But, we now not possible. I hope you may understand the situation.
But I don't want any extra money. Just looking expenses cost.
All things prices are increased few are here for your knowledge (Before and now) You can understand why I just ask expenses cost
Petrol - 150.00 to 400.00 (Within a Month)
Gas - 1250.00 to 7500.00 + (Within a Month)
Wheat flour 5 kg - 450.00 to 1800.00 (Within a Month)
Rice 1kg - 120.00 to 750.00 (Within a Month)
Above prices are will change. It's depends on government decision. Then don't write, I checked in internet it's less and I have mentioned more here. Don't be nonsense.
Couch surving is to meet new people and help them. But sometimes it's not possible or need money for taking you somewhere, You need to pay or stop using us for enjoying freely. I'm just asking expenses right? You have no rights to write I'm bad without knowing the truth. Ask my previous travellers. That time no any money issues for our country and my health was good.
I clearly mentioned here, really can't do free stuffs anymore. Again one traveller stayed in my home and wrote I'm looking for an money. How cheating and narrow mind people. I explained my problem already well. Again staying in my home and not paying any money and write about money asking is not good way. By the way, I was got accident and become in ICU and went to comma. From hospital I came to home for few days that traveller came. So, I arrange my friend to visit and pay my friend. Is it wrong? I did my level best. But I can't be with that traveller coz, I'm head injured. She should understand the seriousness and still I host in that time too. I can show my medical report to proof. Talking simply about someone badly it's easy. But it's not good. You are coming to stay here, already explained my situation and my friend only can help you.
Why I'm saying this, I'm really fed up with those traveller.
If you are looking free stuffs. Please inform earlier and speak with me Frankly. Don't act I'm a good person and then stay freely and write about me badly is not good.
Any time just free to contact me. Contact me who are interested. We can have fun. :)
