living in istanbul/getting settled/travelling further???
I like handicraft. Sewing, knitting etc. Different materials, colours... I am really interested in the arts and textiles of different countries and cultures. Especially the traditional ones.
Cooking and food-shopping on open markets.
I don't eat meat and I don't like to consume too many animal-products. I LOVE fresh/dried fruits and vegetables. Really, I am in love with buying and preparing food (together).
Yoga. Running. Mountains.
And I guess my biggest passion is travelling.
I like being active and doing stuff. Hiking, exploring, making arts, photography. I don't really like "hanging around" and going drinking.
MOVIES! important topic. I enjoy fantastic/creepy movies (Terry Gilliam, David Lynch), but also beautiful ones (like Coraline or Ondine). And Austrian ones (if you don't know them you should watch them. They have such a special kind of humour - very dark-blackish. Also the atmosphere and the main characters are usually pretty weird-awesome). :)
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
i am organizing weekly vegeterian meetings in istanbul, if you are interested in joining, please let me know! i am sometimes hosting, sometimes surfing, and sometimes joining events. it's definitely one of the best websites & philosophies ever!

Music, Movies, and Books
I like the books of Jonathan Safran Foer even though a lot of people claim him to be an arrogant intellectual :) and I enjoyed the biography of Marie Antoinette. I like comics/graphic novels (like Ghost World or Heute ist der letzte Tag vom Rest meines Lebens). Sometimes I think I don't have enough time to read. Because I cannot just read half an hour a day, if I want to read, I want to read for some hours. So sometimes I really miss the chance to get into a new, good book.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
