About Me

Like many couch-surfers out here, I love to travel and meet new people. I live in Houston and originally from Bombay, India. In last 3-4 years I realized my love for traveling and I'm trying my best to make up for the lost time. I've taken road trips in India, New Zealand, to many parts of USA and soon plan to add Spain in my list as I write. Other than traveling, I enjoy being in the nature so I try to add that part in my travels. I go for day or cross country hikes few times in the year. In my day to day life, I enjoy running, yoga and keeping myself fit. Recently completed my 1st half marathon and plan to run many more in coming years. I enjoy photography, reading non-fictional books, cooking, etc. I will love to host anyone who visits Houston and looking for a place to live. Feel free to give me a shout. Cheers!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Mainly to meet new people around the world visiting my city, Houston or meeting fellow couchsurfers while I'm on the road.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The best and craziest thing I've done so far is Skydiving in New Zealand. For someone with a fear of heights, it was all about conquering my fear. What better way then jumping from 15k feet with a beautiful view of Lake Taupo. It was one of the most if not the most happy 7 minutes of my life. That being said, a little secret to share....I'm still not over my fear for heights but I still want to Skydive again ;)
