About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Travel the world and meet people from around the world

ABOUT ME

Hi, I am a photographer and I love to travel and meet people from around the world. I am a very curious person. I like to learn about other countries and their culture. I have been living in Kathmandu for about 10 months. I work here as a photographer/Travel Editor. I am trying to meet new and interesting people in Kathmandu.

Perfection is boring to me. I like imperfect and unsafe environments, which make space for challenges. I aim to travel and lead a life that gives me an adrenalin rush and I intend to document all my journeys through my camera.

I love the idea of - whether it's in my work or where I live - exploring new frontier, and I like putting myself in strange places and trying to survive and figure things out and gather up an infrastructure. I like knowing that I could figure out a way to live anywhere. I like to go out there and do the things that scare me and when I do that I feel victorious.

Every opportunity I get I scamper from the Normal, Monotonous and Mechanical life. In fact, most times I make such opportunities. To me Life is an experience and it is passing by as I write this. The feeling that one life is just not enough to see this enormous world bothers me and makes me want to go out there and encounter everything I can to the max.

"I see myself up high Trotting flying sailing across the globe I see myself up high Exploring observing snapping the globe To travel is my passion, adventure an experiment, The camera my companion and the pen seem familiar now. The large map of the World, Hangs to the right of my bed. I stare imagine envision being there My camera sits to the left of my bed I grab pack and head out with it. This is the goal, the sole priority I dream think work only towards it Sometimes, I stumble upon errors, But I learn and I grow I move towards the path Of Living My Dream!"

PHILOSOPHY

The risks that you don't take are the risks you regret.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. - Mark Twain

"If you're not living on the edge, you're taking up too much space."-- Anonymous

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I live around Patan area. I can show people around as my schedule is flexible but best would be to have coffee first so that we can settle your itineraries. I'd be happy to help anyone in the city. :) I have one couch to offer, but I can host only on fridays. My accommodation is provided by my company, so am not really aloud to have people in the house while I am not around. So if you need a couch on weekday, you may have to leave home when I head to work. If this works for you, then write to me if you need a couch.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

So far it has been great. Met interesting people, shared and exchanged fascinating stories, did some crazy adventures and looking forward to a lot more exciting experiences.
