Join Couchsurfing to see BEKTASH’s full profile.
Ahoj, welcome to my profile ^.^
It's Bektash from Turkey and currently living in the city which I felt in ❤ Prague. I feel more Citizen of the World and my motto is "My country is the world, and my religion is to do good". I'm currently living and working in Prague, Czechia. I like a healthy lifestyle, food and passionate about art such as drawing, painting, photography, movie, music. I love cooking, smiling and laughing all the time -life is really short to be in bad mood.
My life Philosophy;
"Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.” ---Bruce LEE ***https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JYxe6-KWX-M
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
"Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer ;) " said an anonymous person and CS is the most enjoyable way to travel for me. Breaking bias against people we don't know, staying with locals and sharing your experiences, ideas :) I always see CS as a culture of sharing. Sharing place, food, knowledge, etc.
I have joined many CS events ( meeting, Language exchange, food-exchange, putlocks, surfing meeting, city events ( Krakow and Prague ) .....)
I surfed in 20 different cities and I'm hosted more than 70 couchsurfers from 25 different countries.

Hey attentive person, I wanted to add catchword here to find out who's reading my profile and who's sending copy + paste request, because I believe Couchsurfing more than free accommodation. Especially add book section because it's relevant to read ;) So, If you add "Rupicapra" to your message before sending a request then I'm grateful to you :)
