About Me


To find the best "kadayif dolmasi" outside Turkey...


I love conversations about languages, cultures, architecture, society and sports.

I love nature, but I also love cities. I enjoy cooking and love eating and sharing with those with whom I share space.

I enjoy polemic discussions about anything under the sun I can pretend to know about.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I enjoy sharing space and using space.

We have been known to cook excellent breakfasts and other meals, and even share them with couchsurfers!

We took couch surfers to the Bruce Peninsula summers ago and had a blast. Check out the pics on the album. Think tropical waters in Canada! Beautiful.


I only host a few times a year. We also have unofficially CS'ed many times before becoming a member of CS.

Only positive experiences


Tennis, swimming, hiking, water polo, soccer.

Reading, learning Portuguese, Turkish, and knowing the situations of other CS'ers.

Music, Movies, and Books

A fine Balance. Life of Pi. Brothers Karamozov. Crime and Punishment. Solitude.
