Why I’m on Couchsurfing
two years ago, an Austrian friend of mine, whom I met on the internet came to Istanbul to visit me for two weeks. We spent the whole first week touring Istanbul from early mornings to late evenings, till we were tired to death! (But there is still so much left we couldn't do together!) On the second week we went to a seaside resort in southern Turkey and enjoyed the marvellous sea, the beach and the sun, as well as ancient ruins around. Last year I went to visit her in Vienna for two weeks and had a wonderful time there, touring Vienna, watching parades, going to amusement parks and museums, experiencing the medieval Vienna with the Habsburgs. Then we went to southern Austria for camping for a few days. I hope we can meet again shortly. My second experience was basically an exchange organised by the school: A German girl came to visit me for a week here, and then I went to visit her in Germany. But we became good friends and hope to see each other again soon. And as the third experience I met another German e-pal of mine while I was in Munich. Unfortunately I was running short of time, so we could only make a mini Munich tour and have a glass of orange juice! ;)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
well, camping probably, because I have a phobia against all kinds of insects and camping was therefore a real challenge for me!
Teach, Learn, Share
If you're interested, what I can teach is probably my own culture and I'd like to learn about yours in return.
