About Me


Running from Sea to summit


Nuts :) , Adventurous , funny . They would say i talk a lot but that's only because i like to keep things flowing and avoid awkward silences .


A man may make mistakes, but he isn’t a failure until he starts blaming someone else.

The journey is greater than the inn.

Learn as if you were to live forever;Live as if you were to die tomorrow.

Do not let what you CANNOT do interfere with what you CAN do.

Be more concerned with your character than with your reputation, because your character is
what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are.

Things turn out best for those who make the best of the way things turn out.
