About Me

I guess I'm just a simple girl, living in Bangalore.
I've been told thatI'm nice, funny and interesting. But I guess, you're gonna have to be the judge of that!
I love to camp, trek, backpack, or basically do anything with nature. I am scared of bugs (I'm not going to lie) but I'd give it all up to lay beneath the stars.
I've been traveling since I was a little girl, and I don't think I'm more passionate about anything, than I am of traveling; the whole feeling of freedom, love and connection that I get when I'm in a new place surrounded by new people is intoxicating.
I had my first diving experience in Phuket, Thailand (2015) and fell in LOVE with diving. I want to become an instructor and share my love of diving with people all around the world.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I made this profile a long time ago but I haven't been using it because I was ABSOLUTELY busy with other things. I know, it's a pathetic excuse, but I promise to start coming online a lot more, and becoming more active!

Music, Movies, and Books

MOVIES: I don't watch a lot of movies because they don't entirely interest me... But if DO watch them, they'd be either Comedy or Horror. A current mission I'm on is to complete the Top 250 on IMDb. I'm very passionate about artistic movies.

MUSIC: My taste is very eclectic... But I'm crazy about Alt-J and Glass Animals.

BOOKS: I will read anything and everything. I LOVE reading.

A lot of people have been doing this, and it seems like a good idea, so when you're sending me a message, please send me the name of your favorite song.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

DEFINITELY, that would be scuba diving.

I did my PADI OWC in Phuket, Thailand in the summer (May) of 2015. I met a lot of people and made a lot of really good friends. The whole experience for me was so life changing and I don't think anything has ever impacted me like that!
I wish to become an instructor and travel the world.

Teach, Learn, Share

Honestly, I feel like I'm inexperienced at anything to be able to teach something, but I love to learn - anything and as much as I can. But I promise to share anything and everything I know with anyone who is genuinely interested.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Hopefully, all the amazing stories of my strange life that involves trotting around the world with a backpack. (:
