I have always loved travelling, and I was born in Kerala, India, and grew up in Tanzania. I have been travelling all my life, and I am so fortunate to have a job that I love; I have been employed as long haul cabin crew for British Airways the past 19 years. I love the airbnb community, and I feel I know what people look for in a place. I look forward to welcoming you!

I was born in the Blue Mountains, Nilgiri in Kerala, India. And I grew up in Tanzania. I have been travelling all my life, spending many years living abroad, both living in South America, the U.S. and in Africa.
Travelling is my passion, and I am the happiest when I'm travelling.
I am so fortunate to have a job that I love; I have been employed as long haul cabin crew for British Airways the past 19 years. It's been an incredible journey, I have been to remote corners of the world, and I feel so fortunate to have a job that I love and which inspires me!
