About Me


Hello Everyone ,

Yes i also love to travel and meet people from all around the world with different backgrounds , cultures , religions , customs , languages :)

I love to talk about cultures , customs , trends , life and etc.

I really enjoy showing my city to foreigners and explain them the story behind the touristic places . I also enjoy showing the local life of my city to others.

I have traveled over 90 countries and had oppurtunity to meet local people from each country luckily . I believe that visiting a city or a country can not be completed unless u meet a local and hear the story of that place from her/him.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I heard about CS prior my interrail trip to Europe. It suited me and my expectations perfectly.


I met Michael and Jessica 2 times in 2 different countries in a week.First we met in Istanbul during their trip to Istanbul and just 6 days later we met in Firenze in where they study.It was such an interesting feeling to see the same people as a host & surfer.

I quit smoking 6 years ago .
Life is more enjoyable without smoking.
