About Me

CURRENT MISSION My current mission is to make the most of these exciting times we live in! experience new things and grow as much as i can while exploring the unknown constantly. ABOUT ME I don't really know if I have a perfect description of myself but then again who does? So here goes.. I'm 28. I've lived in Bangalore India, Reykjavik, Iceland and Seoul, South Korea, I currently am in Bangalore till August and will move to the beautiful Cadca region of Slovakia in mid-August. You could say I'm a bit chaotic in the manner that I choose to travel, I have been told I can be a bit spontaneous and random ( don't know if that's a good thing at times ) I'm adventurous, lazy, outdoorsy, I traveled in my early teens, kinda got really strayed from that for some odd reason, but I am back at it again, backpacking, meeting people and just taking life a second at a time if you want the odd cliché :p I don't know how complex a person I am, how complicated or simple actually not sure what I am yet, i love meeting people, I have many different dimensions and views but overall I just try not to think about stuff too much ( though when I do I really get caught in my own head ) I hope I am a fun person to be around, I am really hopelessly in love with discovering new things.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm currently back in india, I always look for the next journey and those who walk with me! meet host surf and celebrate!


I have a lot of interests, in a way i'd say far too many, I can go from playing some basketball ( I love shooting some hoops ) to reading or going to the theatre and cinema or a culture centre or just hitting a club or two, I love trying new things even if I am not 100% sure what I'm doing ( I probably am never sure about this stuff ) I'm not 100% sure about what all my interests and likes and dislikes are really it shifts so constantly!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Dumpster diving ( it kinda was fun when I tried it ), aurora borealis, rode an Icelandic horse, volunteered with the ICV to help with moss conservation, experienced the jazz nights at the faktory in Reykjavik, Tried my hand at tasting the local cuisine (skata, rotten shark, whale meat, puffin (i know it's immoral but had to try it once before i gave it up)) Reykja vodka and Lithuanian vodka!
Went to a few off venue concerts at the airwaves music festival, Hiked the Bukhansan mountain, visited the Bukhansan national park, Got lost in Uijeongbu ;) Sipped on some Soju&Makgeoli, Hiked the Suraksan mountain! Learnt to cook a bunch of traditional Korean food. Braved through the Korean theater performance of zorro! visited the Korean war museum and the DMZ! ( this is kinda all I remember at the moment :) but I wanna try a ton of stuff around here )

Teach, Learn, Share

I would wanna meet as many people from as many lifestyles as possible I don't know if there is a "type" of person i can specify. I'm open to meeting and learning and understanding all types of people!

What I Can Share with Hosts

Great conversations, a chill hosting experience and if I get the chance to cook... a halfway decent meal!
