Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

My father was my best friend and his love taught me the beauty of giving and sharing. My mother taught me or challenged me to retain myself amidst chaos. Any where I go I find great people and I carry a big bag of memories and their stories...and sometimes secrets.
By now I know it’s rather pointless about worrying too much about things I lose. Life is a long journey which you cannot plan much any ways and u cannot carry everything you have or possess either.
You will realise I am poor but I consider myself rich and my wealth being my friends and my shared experiences with them.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I was in traveling in India with my American friend Daniel who is teaching with me in the same university (of Colombo) and we were visiting my old friends (Trivandrum/Cochin/Mumbai) & meeting new friends. Two new friends; Rishabh (IIT/Delhi) and Shruti (Editor/Mumbai) told about couch surfing.But I have been doing it my own way...

Interests

People.
Traveling mind body and Soul.
Earth, water trees and mountains; to smell, to listen… to see the colors, to feel the textures…taste.
Smell of different types of food being cooked.
Desire to unravel the Stories untold...of strangers.
Unexpected unplanned journeys.
Express my self through Cinema and sharing it with people belonging to different cultures, geographies and mindscapes.
