About Me

I just moved to belgium after living in Denmark and China. The idea of Couchsurfing is very exciting to me and I have met some wonderful people who eventually become great friends. It is so interesting to meet people from different cultures and share the stories and experience.

To all the people I met along the way, I learned so much from them. I miss them all and and I hope that one day our paths cross again. ❤️

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

A friend of mine told me about couchsurfing in 2014 and since then I am using it. I started using it for the first time in China. For some reason I couldn't retrieve back my old CS profile, so it's new one. Trying to meet more people now! I want to give back all the kindness and hospitality which I experienced myself through staying with CS.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Being a girl from Pakistan, using couchsurfing and staying/hosting with stranger at times , is itself an amazing thing 😆

I have traveled solo to quite a few countries of the world and I don't know if words can really describe how amazing these past years away from home have been. I don't think many Pakistani girls are able to travel alone to so many countries as a solo traveler. Correct me, if I am wrong :). In this span of time, I grew close to so many people in many different parts of the world and created an entirely different life. I saw so many things that some people never get to see in their lifetimes and I'm so grateful to have had this opportunity. These experiences have not only changed my life in multiple ways but has given me long term life goals.

I have also experienced some amazingly terrible stuff, like from Xi'an to Beijing, I had a standing ticket overnight, it was a terrible, terrible night, but I survived and now I can only laugh! I can never forget those 17 hours , standing between chinese people 😅

Oh yes, I also experienced deep sea diving in Atlantic Ocean, was quite an experience 🌊

Teach, Learn, Share

I like to learn different cultures and norms. I can teach Urdu (my native language) and the art of henna!

What I Can Share with Hosts

A lot of stories and nice chai.
