About Me


keeping good karma in circulation


I think that liking your location has more to do with who you are with than where you are. On that note, I can be happy just about anywhere as long as I'm with people that share a positive attitude.


I believe the best things in life have nothing to do with money.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'd like to host people while they are visiting İstanbul and make new friends that live in İstanbul. That being said, I am not using couchsurfing for dating.


Extremely positive, each experience whether hosting or surfing has been an amazing learning opportunity for me.


Exploring new places, meeting new people, live music, dancing, living abroad and all the challenges that come with it, scuba diving, animals, landscapes both natural and man-made. My family.
