About Me


To live! Everyone dies but not everyone lives!


I grew up in Iran, moved to Istanbul for two years and now heading to somewhere else to start my PhD studies. Being adaptable to different environments is what I've learned from many travelling - mountaineering experiences that I had in my life. The first things that I'm taking care of while travelling is finding a place to hike, ride a bike or a lake to swim and the last ones are historical locations! :D (not always) Actually, like almost all the other people when I am in nature I feel a lot more vivid, it gives me confidence, and I can just say it helps me be more myself!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I think there are so many wonderful and pure experiences, and I am going to have the most I can! I hate being on a trip that the only locals you have the chance to talk with are the receptionists of hostel.


I love nature and all activities that related to it! I spend much time mountaineering, rock climbing, hiking and canyoning. I also love to swim, everywhere that there is a chance to! Right now mountain biking is my new favourite! I have started cycling when I came to Istanbul!

I enjoy working with my laptop! driving! hanging out! partying! traveling! eating strange foods! rope swing, making fire, turning it off, big mugs, beer ...

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies: 127 hours, life is beautiful, the Game, No one knows about persian cats, A Separation, Before Sunrise (this list has not been updated!)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
