About Me

Hi 👋

Currently looking for hosts during my Europe trip. Check my itinerary at the end of this bio.

I’m Tejas living in Toronto. I work remotely since 2017 and have used that to travel around here but not outside Canada. I’m starting my first solo backpacking trip across Europe end of March 2024 until mid June.

I love going on walks every evening after my work exploring the city and socialize. I am down for almost everything that gets me out of my home. I’m easy going and always love to know people from different backgrounds, languages and profession. I have two cats Yuki and Momo 🐱 🐈

I am a tech lead in a fintech and also a professional portrait photographer which is my side hustle and passion. When I travel I love taking scenic photos and meet new people from around the world. I always love catching some beers 🍻 and wine 🍷. I also love trying different kind of food and cuisines.

I am a huge movie buff and have never gone a single week without watching a movie in cinema since 2009. That will probably end during my Europe trip however. As for sports I love football and can’t wait to watch my club Real Madrid play when i visit Spain. But I also follow tennis and cricket. Definitely miss Roger :(

If you’re ever around Toronto please hit me up and I’d love to show you around. I love making lists of places so my google maps is full of bookmarks curated in list based on types of places that I’d love to share. If you’re in a city I’m visiting, please say hello and I’d love to meet up as well as get some tips.
