About Me

Hello fellow travelers! I'm Harun, a dedicated science teacher with a passion for exploring the world and sharing knowledge. I relocated to the vibrant city of Istanbul five years ago and currently live just 15 minutes away from the new Istanbul Airport, making it convenient for anyone flying in.I graduated from Akdeniz University with a degree in Science Education and am currently pursuing a master's degree in Science Education at Eskişehir Osman Gazi University. My commitment to continuous learning and technology drives me to constantly improve my skills in using and troubleshooting various technological devices and software.My professional journey is as diverse as my travels. I work as a science teacher under the Ministry of National Education and have gained extensive experience in marketing, hospitality, and customer service. I've worked in roles where human interaction is key, such as in hotels and restaurants. Additionally, I am a skilled driver, certified driving instructor, and motor vehicle examiner.In 2018, I lived in Italy for six months and traveled to 45 cities across 22 European countries, broadening my horizons and immersing myself in different cultures. I continue to travel every weekend, thanks to having three days off each week. Meeting new people and discovering new places is a passion of mine.I am fluent in English, have a basic understanding of Italian, and have studied German as a second language in high school. My language skills have greatly enhanced my travel experiences and allowed me to connect with hundreds of people from diverse backgrounds.Adventure is a significant part of my life. I enjoy extreme sports such as rafting and parasailing, and I make it a point to go rafting every year, even in the chilly month of February. If you're into adrenaline-pumping activities, I'd be thrilled to join you.
When I'm not teaching or traveling, you'll find me exploring Istanbul's hidden gems, enjoying its rich cuisine, or engaging in deep conversations about science, travel, and life. I take pride in my appearance and cleanliness, and I value good personal relations. I'm a problem solver, a team player, a manager and I'm always eager to take on new responsibilities.Feel free to reach out if you're visiting Istanbul or just want to chat about travel, science, or extreme sports. Looking forward to meeting fellow adventurers and sharing unforgettable experiences!@harunkarincali

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm on Couchsurfing to blend my love for cultural diversity with my passion for meaningful connections. As someone who thrives on exploring different lifestyles and perspectives, Couchsurfing provides the perfect platform to immerse myself in new cultures, forge genuine friendships, and create lasting memories.

I enjoy both hosting and surfing because they allow me to share my hospitality and learn from others in equal measure. Engaging in deep conversations, discovering local gems, and exchanging experiences are what I cherish most. Each interaction enriches my understanding of the world and reinforces my belief in the power of human connection.

I look forward to meeting fellow travelers who share my curiosity and enthusiasm for exploring our diverse world. Let's swap stories, share laughter, and create unforgettable experiences together through Couchsurfing.

Interests

I'm deeply passionate about a variety of activities that keep my life vibrant and fulfilling. History and art captivate my imagination, and I love exploring museums and historical sites to learn about different cultures and eras. Nature is my sanctuary; I enjoy spending time outdoors, whether it's hiking in the mountains or relaxing by the sea. Diving is one of my favorite ways to connect with the underwater world, and some activities find balance and peace in my daily life.

Driving is another passion of mine, and I'm skilled at handling all kinds of vehicles and machinery. Meeting new people and learning about their stories is something I truly enjoy, and it's one of the main reasons I love traveling. I find joy in learning new languages, as it opens up more opportunities to connect with diverse cultures and perspectives.

In summary, I love exploring diverse interests—music, books, and movies—that enrich my leisure time and spark meaningful connections.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Life for me is a series of exhilarating adventures. From rafting in icy rivers to exploring vibrant European cities, each journey has expanded my horizons and deepened my appreciation for diverse cultures.

Couchsurfing enhances this journey by connecting me with fellow adventurers, sharing stories, and creating lifelong memories together. Let's continue to explore, connect, and inspire each other on this incredible journey called life!

Teach, Learn, Share

As a science teacher, I am deeply passionate about education and the exchange of knowledge. I love making complex concepts accessible and engaging, whether in science, technology, or languages. Teaching allows me to share my enthusiasm and help others grow.

Learning is a lifelong journey for me. I'm always eager to expand my knowledge through formal education, travel experiences, and meaningful conversations. Exploring different cultures, histories, and languages broadens my perspective and fuels my curiosity.

Sharing experiences and stories with others is something I cherish. Everyone has unique insights and experiences, and I believe in the power of sharing to connect and enrich our lives. Whether it’s swapping travel tips, discussing scientific discoveries, or exchanging cultural traditions, I’m always up for a meaningful exchange

What I Can Share with Hosts

As a seasoned traveler and open-minded individual, I bring a wealth of cultural exchange and positive energy to any host. I value mutual respect and enjoy engaging in meaningful conversations about life, travel, and shared interests. I am respectful of your space and household rules, and I'm always eager to lend a helping hand with chores or cooking if needed. My experiences in various fields, from teaching and hospitality to extreme sports, allow me to share diverse perspectives and stories. I look forward to not only exploring new places but also forming genuine connections with hosts and fellow travelers alike.
