About Me

Instagram: hungrytravellerfromindia

CURRENT MISSION

Love and affection - spread it like a virus, receive it like a bursting dam, recycle it like a jute bag, sugar-coat it like sugar cubes, find it again and again but never lose it..."

ABOUT ME

Love to meet people around the world. As I am in the profession of communication, my passion is to share my thoughts, feelings and exchange knowledge and viewpoints. I have traveled quite extensively around the world. I know the power of meeting people and how it helps in bringing a new perspective in life. I am global in attitude and culture. I simply love to interact and exchange love and goodwill.

PHILOSOPHY

Spiritual and philosophical. Not religious but neither an atheist. Wants to embrace life in its true form. Realistic and practical.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I am attracted to human beings in the truest sense. I am very curious and always try to explore the person I meet to know more. At times I can get a little intrusive but it is more about "not missing out on anything" rather than being interfering. I love meeting new people regularly and that's what has driven me towards CS.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I remember once when I was in 10th standard, I was traveling alone to Germany for the first time in my life. I was only 15 then. I had a great companion. A German lady from Frankfurt. She realised I was nervous and in order to overcome my nervousness she started interacting with me and telling all beautiful facts about Germany. I was overwhelmed and started opening up to her. I did not realize how time passed by. She even offered me to stay with her in Frankfurt. I couldn't but I still relish this experience.

Teach, Learn, Share

Not a teacher in the truest sense. But people learn (in my company) on how to develop the spirit of peace and happiness. I try to spread joy around me and want to learn how to be content with life.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can offer hosts a peaceful stay with an Indian family. The family that has travelled across the world but has roots intact with India. So the hosts will not get a culture shock upon landing in India as we are mix of western and oriental - a perfect combination for the guests.
