About Me

I am a 29yo flight attendant from Istanbul. I live alone and love the fact that I can travel the world for a job. My house is very close to the main airport, Istanbul Ataturk Airport and to the metro and metrobus stations, it takes a 3-minute walk. It's got 3 bedrooms, so one could have a private bedroom. I enjoy tasting local foods, so if one would like to make use of the kitchen and cook something traditional, I might steal a bite :)

ESP: Soy auxiliar de vuelo de Estambul. Tengo 29 años. Vivo solo y me encanta el hecho de que yo puedo viajar por el mundo para un trabajo. Mi casa está muy cerca del aeropuerto principal, Aeropuerto Ataturk en Estambul y de las estaciones de metro y metrobus, a 3 minutos a pie. Tiene 3 habitaciones, por lo que uno podría tener un dormitorio privado. Me gusta probar los alimentos locales, por lo tanto, si uno quisiera hacer uso de la cocina y cocinar algo tradicional, yo podría robar un bocado :)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

Because I don't like the types of holidays of the sun, the sea, the beach and cocktails all day. I love cultural travels and experience local things. But it is near impossible to experience local things without the aid of locals. From a traditional food, to a cafe/bar, from a local show to learning some phrases, many things off the beaten track can be experienced by the help of local friends.

ESP: Porque no me gusta el tipo de vacaciones, el sol, el mar, la playa y cócteles todo el día. Me encanta viajar y la experiencia cultural local. Pero es casi imposible de experimentar las cosas sin la ayuda de los habitantes de la zona. De un alimento tradicional, a una cafetería/bar, de un programa local para aprender algunas frases, muchas cosas raras se pueden ser experimentado por la ayuda de los amigos locales.

Interests

I'm very much into science, philosophy and linguistics. I love learning about the history, traditions, languages and religions of other cultures. I have a folding bike and I take it with me to wherever I go. I quite enjoy my PS3 too. I like looking after my mind and body, so I try to eat healthy food and hit the gym 3 times a week. I am fond of arts.

ESP: Me encanta la ciencia, la filosofía y la lingüística. Me encanta aprender sobre la historia, tradiciones, lenguas y religiones de otras culturas. Tengo una bicicleta plegable y lo llevo conmigo a dondequiera vaya. Me gusta mi PS3 también:) Me gusta cuidar mi cuerpo y mente, así que intento comer comida sana e ir al gimnasio 3 veces por semana. Soy aficionado de las artes.

Music, Movies & Books

Any book pertaining to science, philosophy and linguistics.
Favourite movies: Amistad, Amadeus, Avatar, The Cube, The Cell, The L.O.T.R series, Hunger Games, The Skin I Live In, Redirected etc.. Too many to list them all.
When it comes to music, I like all kinds of music except for pure Jazz. I prefer Remix pop and electronic music to dance to. I love trance parties in the nature. And I also quite like symphonic metal :)

One Amazing Thing I've Done

It's so difficult to choose just one :(
Well, I'm Turkish but I joined the Thai military for 4 days when I was 21. That was quite an adventure :)

ESP: Es tan difícil elegir sólo uno :(
Bueno, yo soy Turco pero me uní a los militares tailandeses para 4 días cuando tenía 21. Fue toda una aventura :)
