About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To find home in each and every new place

ABOUT ME

20 year old student. A bit of a wanderer at heart. I started travelling as a teenager because I was restless to 'see the world', but it has become much more than that. Nowadays, each of my travel has become an adventure - an opportunity to meet different people and hear different stories while immersing myself in new cultures.

I love desserts, travelling, photography and British comedy (in that order). Very easy going, tend to be slightly absent minded and always up for a new experience. I'm doing a degree in Economics but will be pursuing a career in international relations and diplomacy after realising my hopelessness at Maths.

I cannot cook at all but have been told I make a good effort. So if you do come to London, be prepared to watch me burn some toast and then we'll go out for a pint.

PHILOSOPHY

"Not all those who wander are lost," -Lord Of the Rings

Interests

Photography, film cameras, International Relations, politics, food, literature, Paulo Coelho, Harry Potter, sunsets, writing, learning new languages, nutella, long train journeys, hitch hiking, yoga, dancing

Music, Movies & Books

Huge music and book buff. I listen to most kinds of music - personal favourites are alternative rock bands or indie music and read almost everything. My favorite reads are The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho and Life of Pi by Yann Martel.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Doing a hitch hiking and busking project around Europe with a friend to raise money for the charity, International Rescue Committee. We are still doing this at the moment and you can check us out at: www.facebook.com/hitchbuskaroundeurope if you might be able to host us or come busk with us :)

Going to Reading Festival 2012 in UK. Spent five nights in a tent, without a shower but managed to see some of the best bands life amongst a crazy crowd. Would probably do it all again in a heartbeat.

Watched the sunset on Andaman Islands when I was 14. It was the start of my obsession with travel photography, and it also taught me that pictures are brilliant, but they can never truly capture the moment.

Diving in the Maldives!

Countries I've Visited

Austria, China, Croatia, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Indonesia, Ireland, Italy, Malaysia, Maldives, Nepal, Netherlands, Slovenia, Spain, Thailand, Turkey

Countries I've Lived In

India, Singapore, United Kingdom
