About Me

Indian, living in Montreal. I might be able to host based on availabilities. Please read My Home section!

If you're new to couchsurfing read this:
https://welovewanderlust.wordpress.com/2015/09/02/couchsurfing-how-to-be-a-good-host-and-a-good-guest/

I love going to scenic places. I enjoy the peace, quietness and beauty of such areas which makes me realize there is so much more to life than work.

I love hiking, being around water (beaches, waterfalls etc). I look forward to new adventures in life.

If you've received a hosting request from me, be assured that I went through your profile completely. I enjoy couchsurfing and take time in figuring out people I would like hanging out with :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

You meet people who invite you to their homes and into their lives, give you the possibility of warm showers, feed you, talk to you, give you the best information ever about their cities ... Why wouldn't I be couchsurfing? And I get to return the favour :-)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE
(This was in 2012)

Just had my first couchsurfing experience a few days back in Osoyoos and it was hard to believe how you can meet complete strangers that are so friendly to you. My host and his friends were a really amazing and kindhearted people. I seriously didn't want to leave that place !

I've had two more after this. Someone hosted me in vancouver after I'd just posted on the group! It was a very short notice and a long 4 day stay. He and his family were really warm and welcoming. Couchsurfed in Calgary too for 3 days during the peak time of the year when "Stampede" is held.

Honestly the reason I've enjoyed my stay in Canada is couchsurfing. Its a great way to meet people and make trips to places that you would have otherwise missed out on due to lack of hostels to stay in(peak times).
