About Me

CURRENT MISSION

I am not looking for free loaders , so I would like to meet and host you as long as you are also looking for a new, lifelong, exciting friendship and a fulfilling cultural exchange

ABOUT ME

I am someone that loves to share and give...The one word that describes the most is cosmopolitan or maybe globetrotter...I just live and breathe to travel, meet new cultures, different minded individuals, just a deep curiosity to know things different from those which surround me.

PHILOSOPHY

Don't do to other what you don't want others to do to you...
Don't judge,listen...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Being an ambassador, I try to spread the couchsurfing project and mentality to independent/budget travel individuals since CS definitely isn't for everyone.. CS isnt about saving on accomodation, it is about making a friend who happens to offer you a place to sleep.

I have been hosted in 12 countries: Argentina, China, Costa Rica, France, Guatemala, India, Mexico, Panama, Singapore, South Korea, Switzerland, Sweden, Vietnam, Uruguay, USA

Teach, Learn, Share

"You are still for me a little boy who's like one hundred thousand little boys. And I don't need you. And you don't need me either. For you, I am no more than a fox who looks like one hundred thousand other foxes. But if you domesticate me, we will need each other...You will be for me unique in the world, and I will also be for you unique in the world"
The Little prince by Antoine de St. Exupery about the power of friendship and love. It's supposed to be a book for kids but the teachings are so powerful because they are so simple, like most things in life.

Tu n'es encore pour moi qu'un petit garçon tout semblable à cent mille petits garçons. Et je n' ai pas besoin de toi. Et tu n'a pas besoin de moi non plus. Je ne suis pour toi qu'un renard semblable à cent mille renards. Mais, si tu m'apprivoises, nous aurons besoin l'un de l'autre. Tu seras pour moi unique au monde. Je serai pour toi unique au monde...

My favorite quote from Shantaram:
At first, when we truly love someone, our greatest fear is that the loved one will stop loving us. What we should fear and dread, of course, is that we won't stop loving them, even after they're dead and gone. For I still love you with the whole of my heart, Prabaker. I still love you. And sometimes, my friend, the love that I have, and can't give to you, crushes the breath from my chest. Sometimes, even now, my heart is drowning in a sorrow that has no stars without you, and no laughter, and no sleep.
