Join Couchsurfing to see Mücahit’s full profile. It’s free!
Hello! I am Mucahit, 25, from Turkey. An Erasmus student in Budapest and very excited to explore this city!
Before, i was working in our family business in the south of Turkey, Adana. Also I am having Politics MA at Kocaeli university.
My first abroad experience was United States in 2012. Very big challenge with my poor English then! I spent one summer there. Working 2,5 months and travelling around 3 weeks. While my travelling in New York City, I had my first couchsurfing experience with an amazing girl in Bronx. She was working those days, I was walking around the city like a regular tourist. Then i met with another couchsurfer, a real NewYorker! He made me feel real NYC experience! And i realized then, How amazing Couchsurfing idea!
After that i started to use here often. I attended a Couchsurfing picnic meeting at Berlin, a new year eve in Istanbul etc. I have been in Moscow two times and 17 days totally, All couchsurfing! I stayed in Rome and Brussels with couchsurfing. And lastly in Ukraine!
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
For some of my trips, I stayed in hostels and did not have time to meet with any local or resident people. I realized that i did not enjoy much those trips, not like my previous trips with Couchsurfing experience at least. I am not so excited about buildings and touristical attractions without meeting good people that living there.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
It will be too honest, I was not sure about wrote that. I wrote only here. But this story was simple, instructive more.
We have lots of Syrian refuuges here. And the government can not caring them all. They socialize with some ways but usually they have really bad life conditions. You can see homeless and beggars at streets from Syria.
In Turkey, some people are soo positive to those refuuges just because they are muslim too. And caused by some political reasons.
The other people are little bit negative, because they think street's safety bla bla and they scary about these refugee's dangerous and warrior situations. But also its more about politics view.
Me? I am complicated about that. Lets call neutral about their existing here. One time, I've seen a little boy, he is standing front of a bank(Which is next to my business). And looking people like he needs money. I became angry. And show my angry face to him. And said, go away! He's gone. Some other days i saw him again. He is like 7-8 years old. And again i made my face to angry to scare and go him. And he made his face also angry. Some seconds we stayed like that like cowboys. Then he started to laugh. I could not resist that situation and i laughed also.
SMILEY, THE BEST CONVERSATION WAY IN THE WORLD...
Then we became friends but not much talks at first. He has broken and intermediate Turkish. One day i asked him why he is not going to school. He said, he must work. With the body of 7 years old! I asked him about his daddy's work situation. He said, his father not working. I became really angry that time. I said "why he's not? He must work and you must go school!"
He just said his father in the jail in Syria, because of that politics situation. Because he is not supporter of the power in the civil war. I just collapsed. Just collapsed. Nowadays i do not see him but if i see, i will interest his educational situation.
This boy, taught me being just a human. I am not the humanist one. Because there are really bad humans. But this boy taught me that there's no politics, if there are kids and women. Its the tradition from the caves times. But still, people do bad things some others, even to kids and women. I hope to everybody here, get awareness this life is too short to being bad.
