About Me


To Drink Çay and Make Friends


Hello! This is a collective couch surfing profile for four English teachers in Erzurum, Turkey. We love beyaz peynir, honey, spicy pepper, cay with lemon, and learning tavla, Turkish dances, and Turkish. Also, we love Baris Mancu. We are interested more of Eastern Turkey and Georgia and Armenia.


Tradition. Public Education. Diversity. Mothers. Women.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Parts of our collective whole have couchsurfed in New York and Switzerland but overall, we are beginners.


We enjoy hiking, traveling (especially by bus through Eastern Turkey), meeting new people, sampling bread from bakeries, learning Turkish words and playing tavla in cay gardens.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Made friends with Rahmi, our bus driver to Uzundere--a town of 3000. We communicated with Turkish-English dictionaries. Our first day together, we visited a waterfall and the ruins of a Georgian Church. We spent 8 hours together and had 8 glasses of tea. The following weekend, we returned to Uzundere for a wrestling festival on the top of a mountain. The entire town of Uzundere was there with us. We can't wait to see him again.
