About Me


To learn Kite surfing and attending salsa congresses as many as possible. Explore London city!


I'm back in istanbul!

I moved to London in September 2010 and now enjoying this wonderful city.

At the moment my life is full of salsa! I dance almost every night and attending salsa festivals. I've just come from NY, it was a wonderful city, lots of great dancers.

When it gets warmer, I'm planing to see different cities in UK in the weekends and I hope I can find someone to accompany me during those journeys :)

Home sweet home:


Stay independent as long as you can!

I always remind myself that I'll live once, this is my only chance to experience different activities. Try to live the most amazing life!
