About Me

NOT MUCH INTO HOSTING PEOPLE UNDER MID 20's (sorry for the "age-ism")

I'm a naturally calm person, mostly relying on logic and despite being pretty straightforward and frank, I do use an ironic language quite often, so beware! :) I like going out for a walk or a meal/drink with CS'ers, getting to know each other, and also going deep in conversations as I'm very interested in psychology and what motivations people have in their perspectives/beliefs.

I'm not into night life as I'm very much a day person. The relation I have with alcohol is mostly about a glass of wine with meal. I used to be vegetarian for more than ten years but now I eat almost anything. I do love cooking and eating, especially with others, and though I practice the latter one much more these days, I want to change it by improving my cooking skills, so your secret recipes are more than welcome! And, maybe some healthy ones? I also like coffee and chocolate combination.

Finally, I really do like socializing (from time to time as I'm quite busy with my daily routine), even though it may seem the other way around from the info I've provided above :)

Philosophy;

To have more windows with different colors

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

It is a good way of meeting people with different perspectives on life from all around the world, most likely with a great variety of backgrounds and mindsets, which simply broadens one's mind, and helps them construct their own personalities

Also for simply enjoying the life more

Plus, I LOVE it that a complete stranger opens her/his door to me (and vice-versa) at the very first sight, either in the middle of the night or at sunrise, and this alone could be the most influential reason I "like and keep" doing couchsurfing

Interests

New places, people and cultures; politics, beliefs, ethics....; running; playing football, billiard; and of course tasting new foods!

Music, Movies, and Books

"Flight of the Bumblebee", "12 Angry Men" and "Kite Runner" (first ones coming to my mind for each genre in order)

Teach, Learn, Share

Every little thing, especially which belongs to our culture, tradition, language, history, cuisine, our thoughts and perspectives is quite worth to be shared

I'd love to exchange our interpretations about the books we read as well

What I Can Share with Hosts

A chance to know just another unique person with his vision first about his own country, in terms of politics, cuisine, traditions, history, social norms, and anything related to "culture"; and about rest of the World, just a little bit of which he has already been affected by, through traveling and knowing some people on the road

Plus, I'd like to cook for my hosts or invite them for a dinner/lunch/drink when cooking is not convenient, as a way of saying "thank you"
