Hola to all the Travelers 🏻
My name is Neeraj, I come from India. I am a Fashion Designer by profession. I always visit places considering them the trip of my life and love to use those opportunities to meet the world
I love traveling and meeting people to know their stories. I love smiles and expressions. I do have an Instagram & YouTube channel known as "INFAMOUS NIZ where I put up short comedy Vines and NIZ TV for travel and vlogs.
A few words about me – I live in Bombay, a metropolitan city in India known for Bollywood all over the world. I work in a Retail Corporation, doing an office job for the brand Daniel Hechter Paris as a Menswear designer.
I believe travel is only real when you do it your way. And no other way. And this passion to explore the world has developed over the years into my innovative adventures alongside designing.
My goal is to volunteer on every continent of the world. I have started my journey volunteering from Thailand.
I am a person who's driven by thoughts rather than just instances.
In search of a carefree, non-judgmental rule breaker who is fueled by wanderlust Can't resist a good bio ✒
I'll probably say the first hello. But brownie points if you beat me to it. Not too chatty here, I'd prefer to grab a cold coffee ☕
I love feeling a part of a community and getting to know life through situations, people and places.
My next mission/ dream would be Europe viz. Italy.
Things I love most in life: Soulful music, clouds, rainbows, winters, gentleness and kindness, live concerts, spending an evening with a stranger on a beach, aesthetic interiors, beautifully designed (and often old-fashioned) everyday things, the smell of new books, first rain, wood, grass, the company of children and gentle grown-ups, etc.
Laughing is being at home again. A cozy home where there is a celebration every time I choose. It is being a guest of my own party and having always a room to play and be child again.
The day man forgets to laugh, the day man forgets to be playful, the day man forgets to dance he is no longer man, he has fallen into sub-human species. Playfulness makes him light; love makes him light; laughter gives him wings. Dancing with joy he can touch the farthest stars, he can know the very secrets of life.
It is better to live your own destiny imperfectly than to live an imitation of somebody else's life with perfection.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
12 days solo in Thailand 🇹🇭 with no plans
Cooking too. I am so proud of myself that i can cook now :P
Plus many more... and life continually keeps surprising me :-)
Teach, Learn, Share
Learn new languages everywhere. Its the very least I can ask for if I could live somewhere for few days and learn to speak their language.
I am interested in applied psychology, esp. the psychology of inner child - always happy to exchange knowledge and views on that.
I would love to learn Italian & French, playing guitar and, cooking new dishes, horse-riding, skiing, snowboarding, snooker/pool, new ways of dancing (esp.Latin and burlesque), light photography and massage / mind-body connection. Would LOVE to try acting/ theatre one day.
What I Can Share with Hosts
Can't offer much, but promise to offer private space, love and respect.
A man, a gardener of life, sows thoughts and nourishes them, waters them and gives the world. He is thus created to his image. Many of them are co-creators (creators) and thus strengthen their influence on themselves and the surrounding environment. Unfortunately, they are often enough fruits of fear, which we reap together. Concerns, distrust, envy and a desire for revenge do not give enough space to flowers of joy, compassion and mutual tolerance. Wishing others the same way to yourself, to experience happiness .. is, as I believe, one of the possible ways to myself. Shifting our attention, the creative power of planet Earth closer to the heart, waiting for the source of inspiration, we are already stuffing into the maw of fear and our gardens will return colors.
We sow this idea in good faith that the world will flourish.
