About Me


Is to discover the beautiful landscapes of British Columbia! My intension is to escape the hot summer from where I live, and just go travel, be in nature in west coast of Canada..


I am a traveler soul from Istanbul Turkey, where I was born and raised. I currently reside in New Orleans, LA and having a humble life saving money for my next travels, writing, listening or making music. Working on making new friendships in a new country I decided to base myself.

I constantly look for new places to explore, new chances to learn and new ways to understand life on this planet as a human being. I am a vert easy going person who seeks out fun activities. I like to make people happy, and laugh. Love to share anything I have. My passions are music, puppetry, cooking, learning crafts and traveling. Love meeting new people and discovering new places. I started writing recently about my experiences and travels too it makes me feel much lighter.

No matter what I write here, It never can be replaced with a personal question or conversation so if you want to learn more about me, don't hesitate to contact!


Don't dwell in the past, don't dream of the future, concentrate on the mind of the present moment.

Even death is not to be feared by one who lived wisely.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I host people whenever I am able. I am also willing to participate by meeting travelers and showing them around, just the regular places we, residents of this city, go eat-drink. Some nice art events I can suggest.


I had really nice experiences hosting people and surfing. We became really good life long friends with most of them :) So thank you CS

Music, Movies, and Books

I am reading Jack Kerouac - On the Road and Power of Now from Eckhart Tolle lately.. I am loving it.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Particularly I wanna learn about farms and growing plants. Both nutrition and medicine purposes.
