About Me

CURRENT MISSION

to complete the longest journey of my life :)

ABOUT ME

I usually find it quite hard to describe any single aspect of myself but a description that contains all about myself is very nearly impossible.
I can tell you a few things though.

I think I am an open minded guy, like many others here would say for themselves. I don't like to pass on quick judgments upon anything I encounter.It takes time and patience to know something or someone thoroughly.

I am a musician. I value beauty over anything else. I do my best to experience as much beauty of the world as I can. And try to create something beautiful with my work, if I can.

I like fun, good wine and a good conversation.

and i am gay.

well for the rest of it, you must get to know me and see for yourself.

PHILOSOPHY

No, no, no... It doesn't work like that.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I used to be able to host people when I was living in Turkey, and had a lot of great experiences, met a lot of very nice and interesting people. Since I live in a dormitory now in Munich, I am not able to do that nowadays but meeting people and helping them around the city is a pleasure as always.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

In summer 2009, we had a great tour that consists mostly northern European countries with my boyfriend. It was then we heard about couch surfing and we had many great experiences. And when we've returned, I hosted my first guests in less than a week.

Interests

All kinds of art. Including computer games like Planescape: Torment... Yes I am a fan of the game:)

Meeting new people and learning about different cultures and traditions are as much of a passion for me as seeing new places.

Music, Movies, and Books

I mostly listen to classical and contemporary music. Don't ask me which composers I like the most for there are a lot more than I'd care to make a list here.
I am also quite fond of old blues and jazz singers like Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday.
Björk, Pink Floyd, Radiohead, Queen, Portishead are some people I like.

Tolkien, İhsan Oktay Anar, Ursula Le K. Guin, Atilla İlhan, Dostoyevski, Neil Gaiman, William Shakespeare, William Golding, Tolstoy, Aldous Huxley are some of the writers I like the most.

Stanley Kubrick, Pedro Almodovar,Francis Ford Coppola, Lars von Trier, Quentin Tarantino, Hayao Miyazaki, Sergio Leone, Shanjay Leela Bhansali, François Ozon and Fatih Akın are some of my favorite directors.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Experiencing a blizzard in the middle of august in Stockholm.
Listening to BR Symphony Orchestra live in many concerts.
Many more, but the best stories deserve the right environment to be told. :)

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach quite a lot about music to whomever is curious to learn. I also happen to be adequately experienced in turkish cuisine. I like cooking and learning new dishes and new tastes is always exciting for me. I wish I could say that I can teach piano as well, but in order to do that one actually needs a very long time, and it's also how I earn my life so I tend not to do that for free. :D

Countries I’ve Visited
