About Me


There's so many amazing things in this world


After traveling long time around the World, now settle down again my flat which is in Izmir. Time to host travelers. I am usually stayiing at home and working on my wiriting and projects before starting next trip.

So I have a lot of time, but I am usually busy with my web sites and writing new articles. Sometimes I can join or can show you city.

I have a travel website and I am writing my idea and experience in Turkish. You can see here more about me.

I am actually a Veterinary Doc, I worked as a sales person in a pharmaceutical company over 14 years. Before starting my trip I was living in beautiful city Izmir in Turkey.
