About Me

Please read below first:

- I live in a 4 story house in the center which is a listed national monument
- Not more than 1 person
- Smoking tobacco is not allowed (Pure weed, mushrooms and everything else can be alright)
- Not more than 3 nights (mostly even 3 is too much, unless you are very interesting)



``Like all great travelers, I have seen more than I remember, and remember more than I have seen.``

Benjamin Disraeli


I like to travel, party, write, play, read, share, or just simply do!


I live for knowing more..
Everyday I just expect to experience something new and hope to feel that I'm wiser than yesterday..
& I don't like boring people. Just a waste of time to be around them. So, be fun!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I met & surfed with many couchsurfers while I was travelling and had amazing experiences. Also hosted many people as you can see from my friends and references..


Travelling, one day I want to leave a mark on every country. Be in so many places others haven't been..
Books, reading while travelling, while raining..
Theatre, used to act, now just watching..
I also like to party and karaoke. On weekends and sometimes during the week you can hear me saying ``Let's go to karaoke or let's go to this techno party``
If you want to discover the secret night life of Amsterdam, I am your guy ;)

Music, Movies, and Books

Kubrick (Watched all of his movies)
Zeki Demirkubuz (Best Turkish director)
Fatih Akin (Perfect mix of cultures)
Lars Von Trier (Dogme 95 movement is inspiring)
Woody Allen (Comedy, drama, philosophy, history..)
Michael Haneke (If you wanna feel horror in your brain)

Nietzsche, Yalom, Albert Camus, Jean-Paul Sartre, Kafka..
Orhan Pamuk, no one can feel Istanbul like him..
Elif Safak, she has her own way with words..

I used to play the drum, lately just listen to music..
The Beatles, wish I could ever watch them live..
Daft Punk, the XX, Chet Faker, The Strokes, alt-J & many more..
