About Me


Loving Living in Istanbul - City of the hearts desires


I have lived in and visited more than 90 countries so far (if you include places like Monaco and Andorra etc). Now settled in Istanbul where I was seduced by its (and another) beauty.
I enjoy snow boarding, sailing and all of the good things in life which do not cause too much harm to me or anything/body else!


Try to be free to do what you want when you want as much as you can. At least that works for me...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I attended a couch surfing party in Istanbul and think the concept is fantastic. I wish it had been around earlier!


I have friends scattered all around the world. I have experienced their couches as much as they have experienced mine! BTW, why is it couchSurfing instead of SofaSurfing which sounds much cooler?!


oh you know,art, literature, surfing, sailing, travel etc. Pretty much everthing can be interesting if you look at it in the right way...

Music, Movies, and Books

Intelligent books, music which grooves and films which fascinate

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Viisted more than 90 countries and met with a dozen heads of state. Snow boarded in Georgia, Turkey, Macedonia, Greece, France, Switzerland, Italy, Lebanon, Bulgaria. Sailed in Brazil, France, Spain, UK, Turkey, Greece, Corsica, Sardaigne etc and etc

Teach, Learn, Share

The wisest man is the one who knows that he knows nothing. I think this is because he realises that he has everything to learn.
