About Me


Not to kill the child in me.


I am an broadminded and laid back person who is eager to experience anything in life to make the most of it. I am enthusiastic to learn different cultures, ideas, ways of lives, and to discover whatever is unfamiliar.


I believe each person is unique and the only way to know them is to simply talk to them. To live, I need to satisfy myself. To satisfy myself, I need to reach a level of ideas, which is possible only when I leave all my envies and fears behind and experience each unique person by myself. Besides that, I'm a nature lover. I think, in our age, we live a life that the mother nature doesn't approve and gets angry with. I personally try to integrate with the nature and understand it more.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


While I was working at a language school as an English teacher, I met the most adventurous man I've ever known in my life. He was also teaching English and there wasn't a place on the west side of Turkey that he didn't see. His travelling stories became the main source for me and, of course, CouchSurfing was mentioned!


As a literature student, reading books and discussing anything about books are my principal interests. I am interested in art movements -especially those of the 20th century- history, architecture, cinema, and philosophy. I am also an amateur musician, playing guitar and piano, and making music on computer, and interested in musicology and the history of music.
