About Me

I am a 58 years old married woman, teaching at a local Dental college. I am an outdoors-loving, adventurous kind of person. I have traveled mostly within India, and have visited US, UK, Italy, UAE and Bahrain. I have trekked several peaks near Pune, and have done one Himalayan trek. As I approach retirement I am looking forward to traveling the backpack way. I think that this would give me an opportunity to meet up with people of varied cultures and experiences, and I could share mine, thereby enriching our lives. I am also interested in History, Archeology and Science. As a child I have visited Pompeii. I am quite disciplined and trustworthy, I like clean and tidy surroundings, and am adjusting and flexible to a good extent. I can help the host in cooking, cleaning, and would be eager to learn any skills that my host could impart. I am a patient listener, and can talk on varied topics even with complete strangers! I get along well with people of all ages, and can find a common thread with almost every one.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
