I would like to learn to cook a traditional meal from every country and culture, also learn how to say "I am hungry" and "Thanks for the food, it was delicious"
Hey you!! Awesome that u came by, at exactly this moment u found a very special profile, its special because i am special =) and so are u for reading this!! Like all the couchsurfers out in the world, like all the people walking this earth... were all special in our own little way....
Now is the question if u want to find out whats so special about me??
How shall i write all about me without sound very boring and be one of them typical cs profile that u read without even notice what u read... well i can say that i do love to do stuff, it could be anything from meeting you, doing sports, walking, reading, discussing, laughing, travelling, attend on events...
omg, why do i even try?!?! i do really love to do anything, even just sit down with friends in quite and just enjoy the calm....
I can say a little about me and be boring about it but maybe u like to read it =)
I am turkish that was borned in wonderful sweden, so i am a perfect mix of two very different cultures, i took the best from them both and mixed them together...
For the last 4 years i have been moving around between different countries and worked abroad, travelling, and just doing what all travellers do... i am studying the school of life and really want to see every place on this small earth, i usually say that it is a small earth but it lives aloooot of people on it. Maybe someone else said this before me but i dont know =D
i dont see myself stopping anytime soon with what i do and.... have no idea what else to write hahahah..... LOOOOOVE MYYYY LIFE!!!!!!
I am very very easy to go with, i get along with all kinds of people treats everybody with respect, always intresting in new things and love to learn....
PEACE!! LOVE!! POSITIVE!! GIVE!! CAPITAL LETTERS!!
karma has a big affect on my way of living...
it really have effects on me! So many times i done good things to people and get it back right away.. but i dont go out and do good things in hunt for karma, i just love to give my seat to the old lady on the bus or telling that random person that he/she have awesome shoes... i do it because i feel good for it and the other person too =D
also know how important it is to smile.. smile at others and u usually get a smile back =D
treat your next one as u want to be treated...
by positive thinking everything is possible.. but I have just learned that its not all.. u really need the right circumstances to succeed with what u want.. no matter how positive and hard the poor man in africa is thinking and trying to live, it still gonna be a pretty rough life for him... and that is thanks to us living in the good welfare countries...
one man cant change everything but if everybody would try, a change would happen over night all over the world..
spread good vibrations and make this messed up world move over on its good side for everybody...
I try not to say "mine" because its loaded with egoistic negative force!
Take care of the nature and NEVER throw anything on the ground!!! Just put it in your pocket until next time u see a trashcan =)
And i can never walk on this earth if someone in my company is hungry and dont have anything to eat... my friends eat first and i come after =)
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I have been c-surfing alot but not always thru the cs community.. its been more when i hitchhiked, peopled helped me out with accommodation and other stuff..
So far i have been hosting:
Czech Republic: 2
And i surfed in many different locations and everything from king size bed to a thin carpet on a dirty floor.
My most awesome couchsurf i had, have to be when i was riding a motorbike by myself in the mountains in Vietnam.. when i passed small villages containing maybe 20 family's they all got crazy and wanted my attention... of course there was tourists coming by this road from time to time but very occasionally, i didnt plan my trip so good and just left it to universe to sort it out...
when the sun goes down it gets a little bit chilly in the mountains because its very high above sea level and off the coast... with no camping gear i had no choice than to just knock a door and ask for help.
Now these people absolutely dont speak any english at all so i used the international language and when the door opened i greeted them with a big smile and saluted tradionally, then i started to pet my arms to show that i am cold, i put one of my hand against me belly and the other against my mouth to show that i am hungry, i put both of my hand against my cheek and yawned to show that i am tired..... with not even a second of thought he invited me in, put out a carpet on the floor and his wife got me a big bowl of rice and some seaweed to eat with chili =D after we tried to communicate and had a few homemade shots of some kind of liquor...
There was a couple of nights with the same procedure and never i had to knock on two doors!! Everybody was so pleased to have me and very thankful! The whole family slept in the only room there was and slept with them =D
this was one of many great stories from the back of a motorbike in vietnam mountains.....
one time a hippielady picked me up and i spent about two weeks in her house at Nimbin in Australia..
Lived on a houseboat for over a month with other traveller's and the owner of the boat, we had to take a little boat to get in to the shore...
While hitchhiking with my friend in Australia a dude picked us up and let us sleep in his front seat for couple of days because we didnt have any camping gear =D
Asked a family while they were having a party if i could camp in their backyard but they told me sharply no and gave me a bed to sleep in, ate nice shellfood and amazing BBQ and drank beer with them all night =)
this is just a very small bit of all the nice exp i had thru my travels but that is another story for later...
Movies, animations is the best =D
Skate, cruising on my shortboard
Music, any kind of music really!!
Surfing.. on water, on ground or on snow ;)
Any sport when i have to run after a ball
Cooking food, i want to learn a traditional meal from every single country, dont know so much yet but just started.
Make my own chlotes and design
And aloooot moooreee... are open to new ideas on how to spend some time...
Music, Movies, and Books
I love to watch a good movie and just relax... all kinds but animated i have to say is my favourite =)
When it comes to music i am an all eater, can listen to everything but the really big names for me is Bob Marley, 2Pac and Michael Jackson!!!
If u can tell me anyone that can sing and dance at the same time as MJ did i will slap myself so hard i will forget my name =D
Its such a big mix.... when it comes to books i prefer biography's.... cooler to read a true story about someone than just something made up... but half of the text in the books are prob made up as well haha =D
Otherwise books about prisons, maybe some guy tried to smuggle cocain from bolivia and get caught and have to live thru a nightmare for several years... have been reading a couple of them and would love to hear if u know any book like this... the on i read:
El Choco: Swedish man in Bolivia.
Marching Powder: Same prison as el choco.
Damage done: Thai prison for twelve years!! Strongly recommend this book!!
And another one i dont remember the english title on but the swedish title is "Iskallt och Stenhårt" swedish man in the 80s in solitary prison for 20years in the states...
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
there is to many amazing things that have happened to just put out a few... prob i dont even remember them all but they changed the one i am today to the person i am...
something that did really have a big affect on me was to hold my brothers firstborn in my hands couple of hours after birth... its amazing to see this little baby and know that we all have been so small.... AMAZING!!!
Teach, Learn, Share
I can teach u how to make your own simple jewellery's with beads and string, I can dread your hair and show how to.. make hairwraps..
I am a beginner of meditation but it is so easy to meditate and it is impossible to do wrong, i would love to show some of my ways and share experiences with u
I believe I am a good camper and have gear for two persons so we could go out for a night or two and enjoy the beautiful nature..
There is definatly more on this list but cant think of any right now..
WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO LEARN:
I would really love to learn more about yoga, i tried a class ones and it was very hard but want to do more... if anyone out there could give me some hints i could teach u something, maybe how to surf?
