About Me

Merhabalar 🤗
I am chemist and was working in a pharmaceutical company for 10 years. With pandemic, I think everybody's life has been affected in some way but mine has been changed completely. I quit my job and bought one way ticket to South America. Now I am travelling and working as volunteer in sustainability projects in organic farms or related projects.. Basically I am now an organic chemist :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

After years of active working life and managing your income accordingly, now I am in completely different world. Without income in volunteer jobs I am trying to continue on my journey of changing and transforming myself and while doing that, do sth good for the environment too..
It is a life changing journey for me and I am alone in this journey. So the best way to do that to share!! Stories, cultures and sometimes your couch!! :)

Music, Movies, and Books

My music taste is really depend on my mood. I love jazz, blues, swing. I danced Lindyhop for 5 years. In the morning with coffee; I love to listen to jazz.. In the afternoon while cooking; country, indie, in the nights pop to get ready for the night :)

With pandemic, I guess everybody became a movie expert.. It is really hard to tell which movies you like but I might say "beetlejuice" has a different spot on my heart :) Classic but I adore "Lord of the Rings" and Wes Anderson, Miyazaki, Tarantino, Tim Burton movies..

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

After a long and slightly drunken evening in Istanbul, I fell asleep in the bar and got locked up. about 20 of my friends called me everywhere except the bar🤫

I danced the samba that I had no clue how and waved to the audience in my exaggerated costume to a samba school parade at the sambodrome area at the Rio Carnival, Brazil. LOL💃🏽

The rancher I volunteered for at his farm in Brazil dropped me off on his private plane to my destination. 😅😎I guess I was in the thin line between poverty and wealth🫣

The hobby of the other farm owner I volunteered at his farm was skydiving, he invited me and we jumped out of the plane together in Colombia ✈️☺️
