Join Couchsurfing to see Shaikh Shahrukh ’s full profile.
I am Shaikh Shahrukh Farhan, a writer, Entrepreneur & traveler. Being a entrepreneur & traveler i love to visit one place to another, often with the purpose of exploring or experiencing new cultures, sights, and activities then try to write travel stories as well. I may travel for leisure, work, or other purposes, and may do so alone or with others.
I can visit different types of destinations, such as cities, beaches, mountains, or historical sites. I may use various modes of transportation, such as planes, trains, buses, cars, bikes or boats, depending on the distance and destination.
So that traveling can be an enriching experience for me, as it allows me to learn about new cultures, try new foods, see new landscapes, and meet new people. It can also be a way to escape from the routine of daily life and to recharge one's batteries.
However, my traveling can also have its challenges, such as language barriers, cultural differences, and the need to adapt to unfamiliar surroundings.
Overall, being a traveler i am someone who seeks adventure and new experiences and who is willing to step outside of their comfort zone to explore the world around them.
