-Who am I-
I'm Srikar, a south Indian guy in my late 20s. I'm into trail running, graphic designing, photography, video making and story telling. Oh, i also love to travel (surprise, surprise!) and meet people and get to know their cultures, interests, traditions and their general way of life. I love to try different cuisines wherever i go but am often limited for choice as i'am a vegetarian.
I organise group/ private tours to the North East India region mainly Meghalaya, Sikkim and Assam.
I'm constantly curious, i'm constantly learning.
A wise man very accurately described me when he said
"I wish to run, i wish to fly, i even wish to fall but i never wish to stop."
-What i do-
I'm a Tour organizer/Graphic designer/ Photo Video maker. My base is Hyderabad but i travel all over the globe for both work and leisure.
-Want Something more?-
I am currently unmarried, living with myself, have no pets (love to have a furry friend but thanks to my constant travels), and believe in the Oxford comma. I have a sweet tooth.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I want to skip the tourist traps and discover authentic places off the beaten path and see the world through the eyes of a local.
There's so much more to a town or city than its standard landmarks and main streets, and letting myself get lost where locals live and hang is the surest way to feel like a local. So i choose an area to visit, put away my map and just wander. Maybe i'll stumble upon a tiny temple few have seen, or a five-star dhaba all the locals love but few tourists have discovered, spend an afternoon taking a surfing class or a yoga course in the neighborhood park. It may sound strange to do something away that you do at home, but i want to live like locals live. And i believe staying with a CS host will enable this dream and I hope to make some lasting friendships on my journeys.

Music, Movies, and Books
I love any movie with a good plot line, whether it is a romantic or an action thriller.
I am into fiction, but most recently I have been reading books to do with psychology and self development.
I love most types of music, but in particular am in to modern R'n'B, Chart Pop, Hip Hop, and Chart Indie music.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
There are a couple
*Made a cameo appearance (few seconds :p) in a South Indian feature film (Tollywood) as a kid.
*Went on a trip to the Himalayas (North East India region), came across snow leopards and trekked on a scenic mountain pass once traveled by lines of mules carrying valuables over the ancient Silk Road.
*Spent a day on a elephant conservation camp walking, playing, feeding and bathing with them. It was an enjoyable opportunity to spend quality time with elephants in their natural home.
*Discovered a hidden waterfall, swam and drank its pure natural waters after a difficult 3 hour hill trail trek.
*Discovered a hidden, clay mud natural pool in a island and took skin healing mud baths that even most locals didn't know about.
Teach, Learn, Share
I am looking forward to learning about Permaculture farming. I'd also like to learn to cook different local dishes while i'm travelling, and participate in local cultural activities.
I can converse fluently in English, Hindi, Telugu and can teach them. Currently learning Español and would love to practice with someone.
I can share my wealth of random knowledge on many things and exchange travel stories.
What I Can Share with Hosts
I can help you in the kitchen, around the house and if you have a farm, I'd love to get my feet muddy. I can teach you about photography/film making. Suggest good Indian movies and share my joy, experiences, friendship and my culture.
