Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I LOVE traveling and meeting with people. That's why I participated CS. I really can't understand those who are not traveling. Somebody should tell them what they are missing! The world is absolutely mind blowing.


I have never hosted or been hosted by anybody yet, but am hoping to do some CS this summer. On the contrary, I am an active member of Istanbul CS community participating various events.


Languages, photography, swimming, characteristic structures, live music.

I am curious about history, world civilizations, and their interactions among themselves, and influences over others.

Haris Alexiou, The Doors, Janis Joplin, RHCP, Röyksopp, Rosenstolz, K-OS...

I enjoy watching documentaries. Ask me for the good ones;)

As much as I listen and watch, I also like to read. I am a passionate regular reader of The NY Times and the Economist. I am also a follower of der Spiegel and zeit.de and sueddeutsche.de
