About Me

I'm from Bangkok, having recently studied in Hyderabad (India) and London. I just started travelling not long ago, but am totally addicted to it!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Recruited by a Thai who lived in New Zealand, I have hosted only two surfers while I was in India, and one guy and one couple in Bangkok. I lived in a student residence while in London, so I couldn't host anybody. Now I just got back to Bangkok and need to sort things out before hosting again. I wish to spend off-work time socialising with visitors from around the world.

Interests

languages, mathematics, mythology, archaeology, architecture

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Dipping in the Ganga during new year's sunrise at the temperature of about 5 centigrades with drizzles.
Getting myself into the enormous crowd in Hyderabad's old city on Eid-ul-Fitr eve.
Sitting by the closed-to-public Taj Mahal and listening to the jummah prayer sound from inside on a Friday 13th.
Wandering a full day in deserted Jaisalmer amid Indian summer's extreme heat.
Being completely disorientated in Venice.
Spending more than an hour queuing for the most popular pizzeria in Naples.
Watching live broadcast of the Midnight Mass from Saint Peter's Square.
Losing my beloved camera on the trip from Jerusalem to Bethlehem on Christmas Eve.
Taking a walk in Nazareth's old city shut down by the Eastern Christmas.
Outwalking my non-anglophone father equipped with no communication devices in Istanbul's Hagia Sophia square and then wasting half an hour searching for him in a panic.
