About Me

I am Gaurav. I come from a beautiful city in India - Lucknow - with a dream to see the world. By profession, I used to do marketing with start-ups, but then I quit my job and start creating content on YouTube & Social media. (1Mn+ followers across platforms)

I am on a mission to ride motorcycles around the world. I love to create videos and like to showcase the countries I visit in the most unique & authentic way, and the best way to do it is to find the locals, and hence I am here on couch-surfing :)

Easy going. Loves Food. Can talk all day about food. Love to travel and experience as local as possible. Idea of partying would be a nice bonfire in the mountains or by the beach, some beers, folk songs and countdown to sunrise.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Great way to meet locals & travelers with a similar mindset. I just look at it in a way that if you come to my hometown, there would be these crazy experiences that I can tell you which won't be on internet's to-do list, so it's better to connect with the right locals and experience the new places in a local way, rather than the internet way.
