Hi this is Shandana, I am studying political philosophy at New York University though i like to call myself a cultural anthropologist and I LOVE To travel!
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
To travel and meet locals wherever I go. I think it's an incredible place to help travellers from all over the world feel welcome whereever they are. So just to be a part of this amazing network!
In all my travels I have realised that food is such an essential part of a city. But even more so , people! I have met such incredible people who have not only told me the best local places to visit but also shown me their cities in a competely different way than I saw them. I have made such great friends and have learnt so much from our conversations! And yes I make pen friends and I still write letters and emails in this age of Facebook and Twitter
