About Me


I'm a tourist guide in Turkey, so I've been travelling alot with the foreigners. Now Its my turn to travel the world on my own, I really want to feel like a stranger, a naive tourist :)


Since I was 18 y/o, i started to live on my own and i started working after those years. Ive been always in tourism industry. After education of history, archeology, history of art, mythology, etc. in university i became a tourist guide. I love meeting strangers. Knowing about them is priceless coz you the idea of many different countries and cultures.There is too much about me but as all of us, I'm just a small dot in this giant universe. And I'm also happy, funny, easy going, friendly and much more person.


Be positive, love everybody and dont worry too much...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I prefer hosting rather than surfing nowadays, as I can only start travelling after summer.


My experience was not on couch surfing. But I hosted an Erasmus student from Brazil for 4 weeks. Poor guy started to hate the lessons after so many fun activities.he was addicted to go shopping with me as he could never managed to bargain.(it's a must in Turkey)We, Turkish people has natural hosting ability. That really makes us happy; to make a guest happy, and comfortable.


Summer vacations, being on a boat swimming fishing. Nothing else makes me feel assume delighted. Music and movies are huge part of my life. And can't do with out some outdoor, lucky nature in Turkey offers you a lot.
