Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

As I said above, I signed up because I want to meet people, know better different cultures, improve language skills and the main reason- simply to help people who are comming to Istanbul.
I know what does it mean to be foreigner in Turkey so who else can understand you better than me? Let me introduce you to the amazing culture and the country who owns my heart-Turkey! :)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Please, read my profile before sending a request or a mesaage. I really care about CouchSurfing and I think we should respect each other.

Before I joined CS many people (mostly our friends) from different countries stayed in our flat. I'm also an active traveller and have a lot of stories to share.
but there is one thing about CouchSurfing which drives me crazy! The "activation process"! people, don't pay any money for that! I m afraid to think what will happen to CS in few years, I hope it's not going to turn into cheep-private-hostels-community or so...

Interests

*Traveling (I've seen many countries in Europe and I malready bored of it. Now it's time for Middle East and Asia!)
* I'm the foreign langauges-freak! totally, I love to learn new words, phrases in other languages. I gradueated German Philology but I realised that the aim of my life is Turkish langauge and I m going to do everything to achieve that!

*Türkiye, Turkey, die Türkei, Turcjaaaa!!! I can say that half (or maybe even more) or my heart is turkish. Oh, I adore the turkish langauge and everything what is connected with Turkey. It's always a big pleasure for me to meet turkish people 1. Israel2. Iran3. India
