About Me


Carpe diem and having fun so much. Life is short.


I am an easygoing and positive person. Smiling and trying to have fun all time in my life. I want to travel around the world by meeting new people from different cultures and countries. I wish to help other Couchsurfers who plan to visit Istanbul and also wish to meet open minded and sincere people.

I was born in Istanbul and also I am involved to ESN for years. Now, I have my own office and advising foreigners for their relocation, residence permit and education. I am used to meet new people who come from different countries around world.

I am always trying to smile and make people happy. I have organised a lot of Erasmus parties in Istanbul. So I know how people have fun. I like to help people. I like movies, short movies and especially independent movies.


Do something to make people smile!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I joined CS before my Erasmus study in Netherlands. I did need to stay for a week somewhere until to move my student apart. So I decided to join CS. I spent really funny times with CSers in one week.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

One time when I was totally broke in Krakow, even couldn`t receive any money from friends because of weekend. I was walking on the Krakow square and taking pictures. Then I started hear sirens of a fire car. I followed them to take pictures of the fire. I was expecting something big but then i saw that a fireman get off the car and he prepared the extinguish system and he approached a litter box to extinguish the small smoke in the litter caused by a cigarette. I changed my place to take a better video and I stepped back to get a better perspective then I heard a sound from a machine like "ding ding ding". I approached the sound. It was a bancomat. And I found 50 zloty in the slot. It made my weekend and I can not forget that day.
