About Me


to survive with all the 'unbearable lightness of being' !


I am a day-dreamer beyond hope of recovery! I appreciate every creative idea from anyone who can light up my day! It is not so hard for me to enjoy the moment, just need to meet another positive mind... Soon, I know, I will abandon all my academic ideals and move to a deserted island without any Apple product! But until then, I still have some (!) lands, tastes and personalities to discover!


'Everything is socially constructed' so believe nothing thougt to you by the books, your mom, historians or a newspaper. Be a researcher yourself and ask billions of questions every day!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I used to attend some CS meetings with friends who were already active surfer... Finally, I achieved to move my ass and get into this universe myself!


Dance, anything Latin and Oriental! Every sport away from the snow! Sailing and swimming... Getting better in Yoga, self-improvement in cooking and debating.

Music, Movies & Books

'Im Juli', Woody Allen's endless conversational movies, 'Everything is Illumiated', 'Sympathy for Lady Vengeance' Christopher Nolan style, Kubrick...
With music, really depends on my mood but I can say I left my death-metal days in high school!
dear Aristoteles, Amin Maalouf, Albert Camus, Nikos Kazancakis, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Eduardo Galeano, Orhan Pamuk and turkish post-war poets!
