About Me


is to share and learn more while travelling


I love traveling, even inside and outside my hometown. I love driving, reading and laughting:)
I love dancing and music especially flamenco with all its passion to live and with its complicated but real ritms just like the life itself!! I play "bendir" a kind of frame drum use in sufi music.
I love urban histories, local architecture, stories, music and foods, and what I like most is have chance to see the real daily life practices of a place, not the touristic ones.


to let the life flows..
