Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Occasionally going abroad when i get the chance. frequently visiting various locations in Turkey.

Turkey itself offers any kind of interest that you might be seeking for. Is it history you are looking for, is it ancient (B.C) history, religion; art, natural beauties, swimming, skiing, fascinating architecture, time-travel, ethnic cultures, mystery, local cuisines; west, east.. whatever you are looking for, whatever you like seeing, Turkey has it to offer.


This website and community gave me some of my closest friends, and got me a lot of help from locals, and gave me the opportunity to help 10s of travelers and exchange students. If I hadn't seen it with my own eyes, I would think CS was too good to be true.


Traveling, traveling, traveling..
proffessional photography, history, historical sites, museums, documentaries, inter-cultural relations and languages, skiing,snowboarding, swimming, martial arts, classical music, journalism, cinema, meeting great people and anything that's new and fun.
