About Me

20+ countries. crazy stories, awesome times


The world can be divided into 2 categories - people who are complaining and people who are always happy.

I have worked as a sales boy, Software Engineer, Daily wage labor, Bartender, Cleaner, Worker in a manufacturing unit, in a farm and Information System Consultant. Right now I am working in Marketing !

I love to discover cultures, food and travel as a local rather than tourist. So far my favorite dishes includes - Molodovian pancakes, German Pancakes, Argentinian Beef and Moroccon and Labenese.

I enjoy my drinks and love my cocktails - I love having beer over nice conversations. I believe Heineken and Carlsberg sucks. I love Duvel.

Once I was proposed by a beautiful blonde while walking on the street, just like that, she wanted famous 'Gandhi' as her surname.

Once I backpacked, couchsurfed and hitchhiked 62 days at a stretch sometimes sleeping on stations and sometimes just wandering on streets.

Once while hitch hiking I was picked up by a Italian Gangster, Turkish Mrijuana smoker and a Peurto Rican relegion fanatic - all in span of 3 hours.

I once woke up with blood on my T-shirt and I do not remember what happened previous night.

Once in Latvia, I was mugged twice on same day :), still Latvia is my favorite country and I would settle there at any given day.

I believe there are two things that nobody can ever take from you - your pride and your experiences. Both of these things are my most valuable assets.

It does not matter to me what your nationality, gender, age, sex or sexual orientation is, I give priority to humanity. I believe in god but not in relegion - relegion kills.

You ar ealways welcome to write me - For couch request, coffee meet or just for sake of it :)


my youth hostel card says "Wandering one gathers honey".
