About Me

Trying to survive in a society that thinks: If you disagree with how something is done, you are just not open-minded enough

I live seriously, and want to do some good in this world that I feel so much a part of.
I love nature and people.

I want to learn about and appreciate the world more!
For that, I want to meet people from different places!
I want to learn about the different cultures, and the best way for me is talking to people and "interrogating" then on their country and culture :-D

My friends say I am an extrovert. Still I prefer to meet few people in a quiet setting where we can have a proper conversation.
One does not simply grow up with 9 brothers and sisters and become an introvert...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Just like most people, I am here to:
1. Find hosts when I travel
2. Help others, by hosting and showing around
3. Meet people to exchange experience, culture and way of life.
4. I have incidentally made a few friends thanks to CS experiences.

Couch surfing is NOT a dating platform or Tinder app. People who use it like this, please leave my profile now
