About Me

Hi, I'm Sumedh. I am an engineer, who loves to solve problems, discuss philosophical topics and help people. I am trying to experience the backpacking world and wish to travel around and learn new things.
Traveling along with my wife, Pooja, we intend to dive deep into cultures and learn things. We love to cook, so we like to try new cuisines. Fond of stories that teach lessons, we would be keen on hearing ones you have to tell. Pooja is more outgoing while I am more Introvert. She likes to tell stories, sing and dance, while I prefer listening, watching and reading

*We are both fully vaccinated against Covid-19*

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

We would like to learn about people, their thoughts and also teach others some things, if we can. Couch surfing seems like a way to meet nice people around the world. With my first experience in Egypt I made lifelong friends, I look forward to make more such friends.

This is Pooja's first backpacking trip, and I am keen on introducing her to couchsurfing ways of travelling!

Music, Movies, and Books

I like classic rock, rather everything classy.
I am a fan of Hollywood crime drama movies. I also like Akira Kurosawa's movies, some special foreign films like Incendies, etc...
I am not a avid reader. But I am trying. Recently I have been reading Sapiens. Favourite would be 0 to 1 by Peter Theil.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've learnt paragliding. Watching the world from that height is the most amazing thing I've seen... My first solo international trip to Egypt is a proper challenge for amazing things I have done.

Teach, Learn, Share

Teach me German (or your language), I'll teach you Indian cooking (not that I am great at it). I definitely have interesting stories to share, but I am a better listener.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can offer knowledge about my culture, maybe some food from my home. If you're fond of Indian attire, do let us know!

Countries I’ve Visited

Egypt, Switzerland
