About Me

Eccentrically mingling person.
The word eclectic suits me as my philosophy to live is central to be in present and live the day as good as I can. I'm open to Experiences- All kinds of them. Some turn out good and some turn out not so good.

New Experiences taste better in my plate with a cup of green tea. Then I pick again the book I haven't finished.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm in the process of connecting with reality. I'm out of college and want to continue my passion to travel, make new friends, see the things I haven't seen exactly as they are and keep learning.

I'm here to continue the process of broadening my perspective by helping others and getting helped by them in travel. Hence, fulfilling the main idea Couchsurfing was made for.

Looking forward to write something new on the pages of the life with people like you.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

There was this jolly and energetic 14 year old boy working as a helper in a guest house we stayed in Kathmandu, Nepal.

I saw his energy and his enthusiasm to learn when I woke up for toilet at 2 am. He was reading in the staff room from a collection of old books he had including some English language books. Had a hearty talk with him about every part of his life all night. Found out he was orphan. Spent almost half of my remaining money to get him some books of his choice & decent clothes the same day before leaving.
