About Me




I am working and living in Istanbul. I like travelling whenever I find a time to do it and I do it mostly by myself and not in a plan. I am quite flexible person.

I would like to discover local life and meeting with people all around the world, sharing experiences and cultures. CS is perfect way to do it.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


10 years ago I became member of the community and started being host and guest. Still continue this by Couchsurfing.


I have hosted 7 to 75 year old people, have met a lot of great people.

We are lucky people who have likeminded people around us all over the world.


backpacking, hitchhiking, travel, international relations, politics, alternative lifestyles,

Music, Movies, and Books

cant read book so much in these days.. Listening alternative rock and jazz, blues and rocknroll , and reggae and hip hop etc..

Watching old movies these days. its not because I dont like new ones but just find out that there are wonderful movies in old times too.

Swam in the lake in -20 smthg degree
