About Me

I am of Bangladeshi origin and a global citizen. And I went back and forth between Dhaka and Chennai and hosted in both locations. So, please understand my dual location references as a host.

I won a battle against cancer five years ago, and my treatment relocated me to Chennai for that time. To learn about my cancer journey, please take a look at this link :

The Couchsurfing community has given me a lot in life. During the battle against cancer, the Couchsurfing community became my whole world as I could not travel during Chemotherapy. I had an opportunity to open my door to travellers and listen to their travel stories. I am grateful to everyone for contributing to my new life, and the Couchsurfing Community has made me a Proud Ambassador of this incredible community.

I have ten years of working experience as a broadcaster, both On-Screen and Off-Screen. Please understand the On-Screen Pictures and the Off-Screen Individual.

I currently work at an NGO. Also an aspiring YouTuber. My channel is https://www.youtube.com/@shammywadud.

If you please subscribe, that would mean the world to me. Also, kindly watch some of my videos, as they are in English, so I guess it would be easy for you to understand.

I am a traveller, not a tourist with a bohemian soul.

I am in a relationship. So, please do not randomly try to host me, considering I am a girl travelling alone.
Feel free to be my guest (when I am home) and feel at home when you are away from your home. And I am always happy to host and meet a bunch of new spirits.

House Rules: (Please read them carefully) *You must provide the listed below documents before you arrive at my place:

1) PASSPORT Copy and the VISA Copy if you are a foreign national in Bangladesh;
2)Your travel itinerary;
3) NID copy if you are a Bangladeshi national;

*Please note that I only host people with multiple verifications such as Verified Host References, Verified Surfer References, Payment, Phone, Govt ID, and Address Verification.
* Please do not send me a random request if your profile is incomplete. I won't bother to reply.
* If you are 2/3 people, you must send me a separate request for the other individuals. If they don't have a Couchsurfing profile, they can create one and send me the links to their other social media, such as Facebook or Instagram. They are not welcome at my place if they are unwilling to do all these. Sorry about that, but when you come to surf at my home, you should be social enough to put your ego elsewhere and surf with me.

You can email me the documents, and YES, please ask me for the email address.

Basic toiletries, fresh towels, and hot meals for multiple people are always available at my place.
Happy surfing, folks :)
