I was born and raised in Istanbul. At the moment, I live in Prague.
My studies were focused on IT and Business. Now, I am doing my masters in Data Science and working remote part-time for an IT consultancy company.
I used to hitchhike a lot. I traveled most parts of Turkey and some parts of Greece, England and France via hitchhiking.
Traveling is like medicine to me when I get bored of regular life. Meeting new people from different backgrounds is a beautiful experience.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
When I was going to Greece, it was Easter and I couldn't find anyone to host me in the city.
When my friend and I arrived to Thessaloniki, around 10 years ago, we asked direction to a Greek guy. After small talk, he invited us for sleepover for the next night. He prepared us dinner, we went to the church together for Easter and spent some time in the city. It was fascinating to meet a guy on the street in the midnight and becoming really good friends.
It taught me that a stranger might have a lot of the share with you. It is fun, too. That's why I am on Couchsurfing.
Umm.. I believe that we can find something common to do with anyone.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Maybe it is hitching alone on the long way for days and nights and meeting strangers and becoming friends with them.
Teach, Learn, Share
Since I am Turkish guy, I can tell you about Turkish history, politics, lifestyles.. anything about Turkey and Turkish people, and also neighboring countries.
And I like to learn more about other cultures, cities, local secrets rather than touristic attractions etc.
