About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Be happy and make people happy !

ABOUT ME

I'm kind of a person who loves enjoying the life by trying to do many things at the same time like working, travelling, discovering and learning. I always try to occupy myself with some activity and to live every minute fully.

One particular thing about me is that I love challenge. In everything I got involved, I have never given up but done my best to reach my aims.

I believe that nothing is impossible in life, if you really want it and do your best to get it. No matter how difficult the things are, there is always a way and life is all about finding them.

I'm also over-active and energitic person. I love doing sports and being in nature. I love all kind of outdoor activities.

I love contrariness, differences and changes. I like the fear of unknown.

I have an aim of helping all people who are in need and make a positive change in their lives.

PHILOSOPHY

Reach for the moon and even if you fail you will still be among the stars.

Be flexible without being weak, be strong without being violent.

There are no shortcuts to any place worth going.

It is never too late to be what you might have been.

Either be as you seem or seem as you are.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I naturally love to share and help, combining these with my passion to travel and discover made my participation to CS indispensable.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

CS gave me the oppurtunity of getting to know many amazing people and going through life time experience. I surfed quite a lot recent years both alone and with my family. In addition to that, I hosted and metmany CSers in Istanbul.
I hope that my future experiences will be at least as awesome as the previous ones.

Interests

My passions are : Sports/Travelling/Family&friends

I played basketball for 8 years in different clubs and participated national competitions. I regularly do sports everyday mostly cycling (I'm kinda crazy about bicycles ;), swimming and walking.

I really enjoy being in nature, visiting castles, natural parcs and hanging out with my friends.

I also like to search for cheap flights/ travel means with different combination of places etc. :)

Music, Movies & Books

I love a bit of every kind of music except rap and black metal. I love the sounds that go well with my feelings and mood. I like dancing, even though i am not quite good, i have never been shy to lose myself in the music :)

I prefer watching tv series to movies most of the time. My all time favorite show is "How I met your mother".

I read magazines about travelling, actuality, science and bicycles. I recently start reading french authors like Marc Levy and Guillaume Musso.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Well, I actually saw and experienced many amazing things whilst travelling and in general because I believe that I have something that I can't define, which pulls all the weird and funny things to me :) My way of doing things is always stressful and has a lot of narrow escapes. Still, I enjoy it a lot !

One of the crazy thing I did was seeing everywhere possible in NYC by walking throughout from Upper West 110 st (right at the end of central park) to the very South of NY in just one day which took me 14 hours of non-stop walking :)

Scuba diving & snorkeling at Great Bareer Reef.

Getting lost in Daintree rainforest and finding some amazing spots at the far north Queensland.

Cycling in London traffic during rush hours.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm kinda a quick learner so I'm willing to learn as much stuff as possible. Mostly cooking traditional foods, differences /similarities between different cultures and useful stuff to survive.

This being said, I'm always curious about life and the thins i do not know. It just makes me happy to learn and expand my knowledge.

I can teach some basketball moves, mathematics, Turkish and how to survive in Istanbul :)

What I Can Share With Hosts

I can basically share everything I could ( my food, my bikes, my knowledge, my family house in Istanbul etc.)

I can show you around in Istanbul and Paris, depends on where I am at that moment.
