Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Be it on Couchsurf, I honestly say that it was one of that thing, where you actually exchange culture, values, experiences, thoughts, journey etc. in the most prominent way of :Be a Guest'and 'Be a Host' at the same time. For me, each individual is like a book and you get to read it for FREE! That's like you learn and make a better community.
I'm an outgoing person, and like socialising with anyone.
I enjoy being physically active, and spend most of time in Running, Cycling, Swimming and Yoga which makes me fit.
I am a Marathon Runner, and took part in many renowned Marathons. I was even Ambassador and Pacer for some of the races.
I am a Cyclist, and loves combination of Running and Cycling everyday for workout.
I am a Photographer, with few award winning photographs. Wildlife photography is my favourite thing.
I am a Graphic Designer, and a freelancer. I like to work in creative field so I just stick to it.
I am a Certified Yoga Instructor, and keep upgrading myself.
I am Vippassana Mediator, and completed two times 10 Day Course program. It happens to be each year at least one time.
I am a Farmer as well, as we have our own Farms of Cashew Trees, Rice, Jawar, Bajra and all type of local vegetables.(My Native place is around 2-3 hours main city Kolhapur). If you wish to visit that, you're most welcome.
I like to do trips mostly Solo or with Co-Traveller. I'm travel enthusiast and like exploring places just random.
I was featured on YouTube with French Bike Rider, as he was travelling the world on his bike. Please search on YouTube @RideWithFrenchy and do watch his journey
I like trekking/hiking on my own and arranged some Treks for large groups in my hometown.
I just left my lucrative career from CitiBank in 2017, just to follow my passion of Running and Fitness.
Featured in local newspapers for multiple times, for some outstanding achievements 😊
So, that's (Little) about me!
