Hello! I am Praveen (22) from Vijayawada (Andhra Pradesh, India). I am studying Computer Science at IITK Kanpur (Uttar Pradesh, India). Before joining here, I studied for four years in Visakhapatnam (Andhra Pradesh, India), the most beautiful place I lived till now.
These days I developed a great zeal for traveling (especially Adventure Tourism and Heritage Tourism). I am lucky, I live near Delhi (one of the oldest living cities in the world) & Uttarakhand (one of the best regions in the world for trekking). I spend time roaming around the world virtually in Google Earth(thanks to Google). I read about places and travel experiences. The most exciting thing for me is Mt. Everest and broadly Himalayas. I am planning Everest Base Camp Trek (Nepal) this summer(Sep/Oct/Nov 2008). Wanna have fun?
Also I am on a mission to cover more than half of the World Heritage Sites in India. 11 of 27 completed :)
Of all the places I traveled, Delhi is the one that I liked the most. A perfect amalgamation of ancient heritage & modern culture.
Apart from Traveling, my interests include Computer Science, Photography, Music and History.
