About Me



We are Faruk and Kivilcim. We've been living together since 2009.
We are both studying, Kivilcim is studying Biomedical Engineering as a graduate student and Faruk studied Poltical Science as an undergrad, now doing masters in Modern Turkish Studies.

We both love traveling and hosting people. We are easy going people, love to meet and talk with new people. We love to make music in our place, if it's not too late and too noisy.


Ars Longa, Vita Brevis

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


We actually participated in a selfish way.. We were going to a trip and decided to check if I can find a place to stay.. but now, everything is different, we can say :)


I went to Frankfurt and Darmstadt and stayed with a friend called Yigit.. It was also an amazing week :)

I've also been to Meinz, Milano,

We went to Beirut and Damascus together, and stayed there with the nicest hosts in the world, Garo..

Then we traveled Toulouse, Bourdeaux, Paris and Marseille, had amazing hosts in all cities.


Faruk plays guitar and sings.
We love to travel, see movies, go to parties, backpacking, volunteering etc...
