About Me

I currently live in California and I'm a astrophysics graduate student at University of California Irvine(UCI) . I love hikes in lush areas which are challenging a little bit(not K2 or Fritz Roy level :D) . At the beginning of every multi day hike I usually wish to get lost in my hikes but I know my limits.

Mostly I like solo backpacking but I would love a good partner for my hikes.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I like to meet people from different cultures. Share their experience and views . I'm fascinated about the natural and human variety in this world and I want to experience it before most of it gets destroyed.


I play tabla, violin and try different music instruments especially percussion instruments from other countries.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Hitchhiking for the first time for 100 miles in New Zealand. I got 3 rides.
I was just coming out of a jungle after 2 day hike with a injured leg . My friend's place was around 100 miles from the national park and there wasn't any public transport. So I started signaling for a ride, standing while thinking how could I do it since I'm a shy person. Googling how to do hitchiking effectively and after 45 minutes I got a ride for 4-5 miles. And then on I mastered the art of hitchhiking :D
