About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Travel as much as I can...

ABOUT ME

Well, it's always difficult to talk about himself!
Born and raised in France by Turkish immigrant parents who came to France in their 20's.
So I have a double culture, mixed between Turkish and French :)
What's more important is that I just feel European after my years living abroad.
I learnt a lot by meeting and getting to know Italian, Spanish, British people, and basically then I change a lot my way of life!
I've been working now for almost 2 years in my hometown, and I feel like nothing interesting is happening anymore, that's why I'm quiting my job in April to start a wee trip...

__________________
After having travelled for a year between Europe, North America, Australia and New Zealand, it's my time to show people around Lyon and hang out with them.
I'm still getting to know the city, I've only moved back for a few weeks, but I could hang out and show around depending of the time of the week.
Not sure about being able to host Couchsurfers as I am living with another 3 guys in the flat...

Interests

I love music, listening to and travel to attend festivals gigs and concerts...
I really can't live without music: music to fall asleep, music to wake up, music under the shower, music in public transports, in the car, at work, ...
Another interest of mine is photography. Taking photos, and visit some modern art / weirdo art galleries :)
