About Me


create and live peace


My name is Guclu : I really enjoy the variety in the world. But also the oneness that lies behind it. I enjoy the limetless undying love that sourounds me like a million suns.

My name is Yukari, a partner of Guclu Yilmaz since April 2011. I am a Japanese but retired workaholic, I mean hard-working Japanese :) I'd like to know and learn many layers of world cultures through CS. Hope to meet and exchange our cultures with CSers from all over the world!!!



Enjoy life and be happy. (Maharishi Mahesh Yogi)


People who share the same feelings can understand each other more than people who speak the same language. (Mevlana)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


A friend of mine (Evrim) recomended it. I am really thankful to her.


"When we want to increase friendship, we don’t have to talk. Feel a warm feeling inside. Increased feeling of warmth will increase the friendship astonishingly because that is the field of infinite correlation."—Maharishi
