About Me

Instagram: soumil296

I am a fun loving person, interested in meeting new people and knowing them. Doing adventure activities and exploring new places also excite me.

I love meeting people from other countries, listening to travel stories and learning about other cultures. In reality I'm not a talkitive person, but Couchsurfing has completely changed me, after meeting so many people from different backgrounds I've many Things now to talk about.

I go out every weekend for hiking with several others in Nordrhein Westfalen region of Germany, which is where I currently live. I try to go biking/mountain biking as and when I find enthusiastic people around. I have recently discovered my interest for Kayaking and Canoeing. I just love the soothing sound of Handpan and also had an opportunity to play it while doing Couchsurfing and Workaway.

I am a licensed paragliding pilot but i still wish to continue learning this sport further, to be able to fly independently without the instructor guiding me on the radio... 😃

Here's my YouTube video - https://youtu.be/3EWwrNV7kfI

Horse riding, Sea Surfing, Scuba diving and Sky diving are few of the things I wish to learn in the near future...

Regularly doing yoga, meditating, eating healthy are a part of my daily routine to stay fit and try and enjoy every moment of life.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

to travel, meet people, make new friends and most importantly, enjoy life to the fullest !!!

CS had made me realise myself that I'm a Person who likes to stay outdoors and there are many others like me with whom I can not only do activities but also stay with them and have a great time together.

I thought that CS actually means that you get a Couch to stay for a night and then move on with your business. But all my experiences have been just awesome. Mostly of the time I get a separate room, an excellant hospitality, good food and friends for life. Especially whenever I get hosted by families, that is an unique experience in itself.

Interests

I like watching movies and series but not very often, since I believe that they take away a lot of valuable time from our life, and give a false sense of accomplishment and satisfaction at the end.

I rather prefer to spend this time in nature, doing outdoor activities, getting to know people from different walks of life and understand their culture. 🙂

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

South India road trip on Bike; 4200 kilometers in 4 nights, 5 days; travelling 18 hours a day, n-joying the journey !

I flew solo from a 800 feet high hill in India with a paraglider; was a wonderful experience; gliding in the air, cool sound of the wind blowing on your face; watching the tiny people & vehilces below my dangling feet..

Backpacking through Bulgaria and Greece for 3 months and doing voluntary work in a hostel for 1 month in the Swiss Alps.

Teach, Learn, Share

Being an architect by profession, I can discuss about buildings, landscape, streetscape, urban planning and so on, if that interests you.

If you are planning to buy a new house or build your own in near future, I'm your man.

I can teach you basic Salsa steps (Cuban style) which I had learnt during my stay in Belgium 💃One of my guesta also taught me Bachata basics which i can share too 😉

If you are visiting me and like some unique sports, I can teach you roller skates, which you can try out in my backyard !

I am open and curious to learn anything and everything you can share with me.
