Dear Loving World Mates,
Greetings from an Indian Nomad, Hitch-Hiker and traveler Ansh Mishra hailing from the land of holy river Ganges and Kumbh Mela- Prayagraj (Old Name Allahabad) situated in the North Indian state of Uttar Pradesh ,India.
I would like to mention about my special and unusual journey entitled as “Lets Roam India "The journey commenced on 3rd Feb 2017 from my hometown Prayagraj (Allahabad then) and finished up post 9 months on 17th Oct 2017 at Durg city in Chattisgarh state of India after covering entire Indian nation .The very purpose of this unique journey was to travel across the entire Indian nation while doing hitchhiking with a purpose of breaking certain myths which we all believe in most of our lives. The motto of this journey was to spread “Humanity" and to inspire people for being comfortable with “Strangers". To prove this statement wrong that “Money and Language can be a barrier for achieving your dreams". To respect "Truck Drivers" as they are the lifelines of any nation as they transport and provide all the necessary and basic things across the various cities of the country .To break the concept of the word "IMPOSSIBLE" for those who have not attempted this way of traveling yet. To taste the new flavors of experiences and to share an untold saga of life with the fellow countrymen.
I would like to inform you all that, I have successfully completed -the mentioned "Lets Roam India" journey while covering the entire Indian nation -28 States, 4 Indian UT & 3 international borders (Bhutan, Myanmar, & Bangladesh), without spending or taking money from anyone for 254 days (Approximately 9 month).Also I was successful enough with my very mission and purpose of doing this journey and finally proved that humanity and kindness exists everywhere and if you are good with others then only good things will happen to you. You always need to believe and have faith on your good intentions. Then everything will fall in place and will ultimately fulfill all your dreams.
Post the journey in the past three years I have got indulged with various other projects related to travel. I have been working on promoting local tourism across the country. Also I have got chances of sharing my journey on various TedX platforms .Also as I have always been fond of food, I have also developed and enhanced my culinary skills and utilized it well on various projects. I have also used this time in re-energizing myself both physically and mentally so that I can resume this journey of mine in the second phase which has been started Feb-2021.
Below are the references for you all to have a glimpse of my "Let's Roam India" journey.

Ah---Tough Question...still let me answer ..
I have been active in Couchsurfing community for last 3+ years for EXPERIENCES.
I’m a 31 years old energetic nomad who is always ready to go on roads to explore humanity and get inspired in every moment to live a life always content.
I believe nothing cost in being kind and in exchanging smiles. This is what I can offer to someone who is seeking hope in life. In short, I am a kind believer of humanity and a positive thinker.
I love to travel, to learn new things, to spread smile and humanity, to inspire and get inspired, to communicate with all the humans, to buildup a strong life long relationship during travel as you never know who can become a true life savior or inspirer or a source of motivation for you anytime or any phase of your life.
And this can be achieved by My Way of Traveling like : is core hitchhiking, land border crossing, penniless traveling, walking, Couchsurfing, camping, wild forest camping, Cycling, free walking tour, home stay, volunteering, bartering, Community living, Self Cooking on the move.
Let’s explore and know more about each other !
Frankly speaking there is no philosophy which I follow but yes I always remember to keep things simple.
In this busy and hectic life of ours where we all are indulge in making more money and upgrading our lifestyles, somewhere we are missing upon the true essence of life.
We can always make money but what we need more and should focus on is creating upon a life full of memories. So Travel as much as you can.
Hoping Couchsurfing can prove a way to achieve that.
