About Me

Hello, fellow travellers and adventurers!

I'm originally from India but have been residing in Dubai since 2012. Living in this incredible city has allowed me to appreciate diverse cultures and meet people from all walks of life.

I have a deep passion for travelling and exploring new destinations, immersing myself in different cultures, and creating unforgettable memories. When I'm not on the road, I enjoy indulging in my love for music, movies, start-up ideas, and outdoor activities.

I'm always eager to meet fellow travelers and locals, learn about their language and culture, and exchange fascinating stories and experiences. If you're looking for a friendly and open-minded host or travel companion,

I would be delighted to welcome you and share my knowledge of Dubai or join you on your adventures. Let's connect and create unforgettable memories together!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Couchsurfing allows me to be a part of a global community that values openness, respect, and curiosity, and I am excited to meet like-minded individuals who are eager to connect and share their own cultural backgrounds.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Siberia and Mauritius provided me with incredible moments of natural beauty, cultural exploration, and personal growth. These travel experiences have expanded my horizons, created lasting memories, and deepened my appreciation for the diversity and wonders of our world.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can offer insights and knowledge about doing business in the UAE, including the local business culture, customs, and etiquette. I can provide guidance on navigating the unique aspects of conducting business in this dynamic and vibrant country. Additionally, I can share information about job opportunities and provide references to help you explore career prospects in the UAE.

I am eager to learn Russian, Spanish, and German. I have a strong interest in languages and am excited to immerse myself in these three diverse and widely spoken languages. I am open to learning from native speakers or language enthusiasts who can guide me in understanding the intricacies of these languages, practising conversation skills, and expanding my vocabulary.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Couchsurfing is all about building connections, facilitating cultural exchange, and nurturing a sense of community. By offering respect, sharing cultural insights, providing assistance, and expressing gratitude, I can contribute to creating a positive and memorable hosting experience for both myself and my host.
