About Me


Travel, Travel,Travel!!!


I'm always reinventing a little hard to capture that in words!


Live and Let Live!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Not sure yet..


I've only had great experiences on Couchsurfing so far. Both as a host and as a surfer I've had the good fortune to meet intelligent, well traveled, global citizens.
Hope to continue this trajectory...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Every new experience I have seems like the most AMAZING thing that has happened to me...till the next one comes along:)
If I had to pick a select few though they would be:
1)Paragliding at 1300 ft
2)A month long road trip through North West India where we drove through the most breathtaking vistas, stayed in old palaces and met some fantastic people.
3) Another month long trip across the USA. Mostly staying in the breathtaking national parks.
4) Hiking in Bhutan - often called the last Shangri-La

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm a super curious person who's always up for new experiences...I would definitely love to learn more about different cultures. Having lived in India, I can share the language, culture and cuisine. Maybe share some curry recipes:)
