About Me

HERE I AM :))

Get ready to meet with a dreamer! Seeing the world through colourful glasses. Trying to see the positive part all the time. Having funny and mostly impossible thoughts and solutions in general(in case of any problems) :D But, hey! Really! Even just by smiling, you may overcome many, problems... This is what I believe!

Currently, I'm studying Visual Computing masters as I am very interested in Computer Graphics, Animations etc. Not sure about what to do later yet.

And of course, as obvious from being a member of Couchsurfing, I am addicted to TRAVELLING! Addicted to DISCOVER new places, new cuisine, new languages and of course MEETING new people.

Here is the motto: Meet with everyone in all over the world and leave your footprints in everywhere on this small blue planet!!! (Noo, not such that impossible :D)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Let's refer to the motto :D Meet everyone, discover everywhere... That's the reply!

Interests

The same interest that all of us have!! :D Travelling and discovering... Discovering because, it is not proper to say that we visited some places without discovering it's streets, cuisine, markets, local festivals, traditions, language and of course it's people.

Meeting new people and sharing stories, memories, ideas... Its really funny to view the world from the eyes of different people!

All kinds of art! Taking photos, painting and especially charcoal drawing... I love trying to play my violin :P

I'm also interested in sports but to be honest, I'm not very talented at the ones with a ball except table tennis :D That's why, better on running, swimming, diving, cycling, ski.

I really love struggling to look something in a different way and trying to see that the others did not.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I have seen lots of amazing places and I hope I'll see more. However, the most amazing thing that I ever seen in my life that also I joined was not a trip. It was a society movement that began to save the natural parks and places. It was the meeting of violence and peaceful uprising.

Teach, Learn, Share

I may teach you how to make a Turkish coffee and how to look for your future using it :D Ofcourse it's just for fun, but also a part of our culture related to Turkish coffee!

Also, for now I'm not able to host someone because of living with parents. But soon i may convince them or may have own place :D But it doesn't mean that i cannot help you! Don't hesitate to cantact if you have any questions about anything related to my city, country, culture, language!

What I Can Share with Hosts

I may cook some delicious Turkish traditional food :) Also may bring some traditional drinks! And a bit language exchange or better, memories exchange :D
