About Me




Friends describe me as active, energetic and easy-going. Have traveled to several countries, and visited several continents, still so much left to explore and experience. Have always been passionately curious about human relations and interaction, philosophy and psychology. At the same time can't imagine my life without music and dancing, sports, books and sea.


Living to the fullest of my potentials, putting everything at stake

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I can't host couch-surfers currently, but I hang out with people who visit Istanbul, and show them around, taking them to the places that are not very touristic but help to grasp the real life in Turkey. I have a favorite city tour, that is organized on a regular basis by CS-ers here, and explore Istanbul through walking. I also visit the Turkish club, where I practice my Turkish.


You have to always be up for something unexpected, and it mainly depends on your perspective, and whether you're open and flexible enough to adapt to its rules. So far, have met amazing people from different corners of the world through it.
