I am an architecture student, studying my last semester (hopefully:p) in Ankara. I've just finished my Erasmus term in Rome, and it was a great experience. Being alone and far away from what i used to made me way more mature and confident. Thanks to CS, I have learned sooo many things and saw different lifestyles. I'm super happy that i had such experiences of diversities and super excited to continue them by, now, hosting people visiting my city, Ankara.
Well, being a capital, Ankara is a more orderly organized city and it has a different history than the any other historical city in Turkey. Some thinks that it's liveable, peaceful and has a valuable history whereas some might find it boring. You can make a search before coming and tell which attract you the most in the city or what you want to do here, so i can recommend somethings accordingly. What attracts all my attention in this city mostly is my school campus. I'm studying in ODTÜ which is literally an oasis in the desert. You might search it before coming and i could take you there if you'd like to as it is almost the only place i love and prefer to spend time in Ankara. Because only members of the university are accepted inside the campus, you need to write me beforehand to visit it, so that i could write a request mail to the school (it'll be worth it dont worry haha and believe me it's better when everyone is not accepted).
Besides, you can see all the things i like to do below, and I'm sure we can find something to do together. Depending on my/your time and energy, i prefer to give interaction and spend time with CS'ers. Except some specific conditions, i will expect you to do it so. So i'd love to know what we can exchange among each other. Seeing what you find interesting on me in your message will make me more comfortable when i recieve someone in my house:)

I love photography. Although I couldn't do much due to the quarantine, I am trying to get my motivation back for street and architectural photography. I participated in and directed many events, organizations in school communities, fests etc., so I am totally open to going for any kind/level of photo trip/events with you :)
I draw. Besides the technical drawings for the architectural profession, I also like drawing (freehand&ink) and making artistic digital collages.
I study architecture because it's my passion. I am always eager to observe and understand the architectural/spatial characteristics of cities. Not only looking at them and saying "oh nice building" but also trying to consider their relations with the surroundings and the past in many contexts. In a nutshell, we can also have architectural/urban trips.
I listen to songs in maaany languages, so why not also yours? Although I also like rock, psychedelic, progressive rock, metal; nowadays I am into regional and old songs in different languages. Generally, I don't understand the lyrics, but I enjoy their emotion and authenticity. I sometimes, modestly, try to sing but I cannot promise perfection about my voice and the accent hahah Morevover, I used to play guitar but again, I am not very good at it at the moment.
I play tennis. Although I was way better in high school, I am always up for some mates for a little stress relief.
I walk a lot and bike. They make me feel so relaxed and free. They are also awesome for exploring cities in a more direct way.
