About Me

After I finally found out what I like doing to make a living for a while I went to Istanbul (a dream come true) and then to Kuwait (obviously for financial reasons).

Now on a crossroads....I have a long summer holiday waiting for me and wondering If I should stay or should go and run away from Kuwait (it has been a tough 10 months)

But first things first: I have so much time for me now (2.5 months off) and I plan to travel to Spain and Canada (maybe US as well).

I'm sociable, outgoing, animal-lover, a little crazy (depending who I'm around) and generally positive.

Music, Movies, and Books

Hard to choose fav Music. I love almost everything except for jazz. I can listen to country or bluegrass 24/7. Some musicians: Old Crow and the Medicine Show, Gillian Welsh, Regina Spektor, The Avett Brothers.

I'm currently reading books by the Turkish Authors Elif Şafak and Ayse Kulin. The last book I read before that was Travels with Charley by Steinbeck.

Favorite movies: Into the wild, Dancer in the dark, La Piel Que Habito, Room, Before sunrise trilogy and many, many more.
