About Me

First of all, I love traveling!
I am into learning about other cultures and places.
I like making new friends. I'm open to new ideas.
I adapt easily to different ways. Language learning is what I do best. And I do Ebru (traditional turkish marbling art) for living. Willing to give a demonstration on how to do Ebru to anyone who is interested.

After living in Japan for nearly a year I feel grown :)
After visiting India I look at the world differently.
After being in Mexico I sense the beauty of the world more intensely.

I wish for meeting more people all around the world. I wish for a more loving human kind.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
