About Me


To meet new people as much as I can in Berlin!


Having my core friendships in Istanbul, I always strive for meeting new people. I believe that each and everyone of you I met till now has taught me something else including the ones still teaching me. We are now 6.94 billion people on earth with infinitely many(!) differences which gives me the motivation for and only for meeting new people and exploring the current ones more. (Footnote: For several months, it is more than 7bil. how fast!?! - 12. April 2012)


Keep walking and travel before you get much older! But travel responsibly :) dont travel if your aim is just to add up a new place to your list by seeing them for a short while without trying to get an idea about the natives and culture. Get connected!


Traveling and meeting new people. That s all you would need to know for now. Rest you can learn if we ever meet someday.

Music, Movies & Books

First things that come to my mind:

Movies: Danish movies rule! Reconstruction, Allegro, Adam's Apples and so on so forth...
Music: Sigur Ros, Jeff Buckley, Red House Painters, Bach, Chopin, Erik Satie, Mazzy Star, Tanju Okan, Fikret Kızılok...
Books: Stefan Zweig, Kafka, Roald Dahl, Edgar Allan Poe, Nabokov, David Benioff...

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Hard to think. In my journey to the east of Europe alone, what amazed me was the hot, thermal water of a Hungarian Bath in such a cold weather like -15 degree making my hair frozen. The water though was like 34 degree. I wish i could share this crazy thing with someone there.

Countries I've Visited

Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, France, Hungary, Italy, Poland

Countries I've Lived In

Germany, Turkey, United States
