About Me

Hey there! I'm an aeronautical engineering student in Türkiye with a head in the clouds and feet on the ground (most of the time 😃). My days are filled with designing fuel-efficient airplanes, building drones and creating helicopters for competitions, but my true passion takes flight when I'm exploring new corners of the world.

Traveling isn't just about ticking countries off a list for me; it's about learning from locals, sharing stories, and getting lost in the magic of different cultures. ✨

I'm grateful for the opportunity to experience the world through the eyes of locals, and I'm excited to share my own stories and perspectives. If you're looking for a curious, easy-going, clean and respectful guest, I'd love to connect with you!

If you're looking for a friendly and appreciative guest who will add value to your home, I'd love to hear from you!

Music, Movies, and Books

I love reading books, my favorite books: Martin Eden (Jack London), Meditations (Marcus Aurelius), Serenad (Zülfü Livaneli) and any book from Dostoevsky and Stefan Zweig :)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Soaring above the competition! My team and I took first place in Türkiye's prestigious helicopter design competition, beating out 461 other entries. The feeling of holding that trophy was indescribable – a testament to months of hard work and collaboration. This victory not only validated my passion for aeronautics but also ignited my thirst to explore diverse aviation approaches and cultures around the world.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can prepare some Turkish dishes for you and provide information about Turkish culture. If you are interested in engineering, I can explain how an airplane or helicopter flies, or any other aspects of aviation that you might be curious about :))
