About Me


Exploring Thailand!


Easy going, fun person. I like music, puppetry, cooking, learning crafts and traveling. Love meeting new people and discovering new places. Being on the road gives me serenity. I love to share and understand other people..I am generous and friendly.

Looking forward to learn about Thai culture and meet nice people to share good memories during my travel.


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 time to time.. Most of the time we have a guest.. 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. Lately I am working at the Istanbul International Puppet festival so if you are interested in Puppetery I can take to some shows!


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