~~~ ABOUT ME ~~~
I just opened my own business, I have to admit that I spend there most of my time, I have a small fish restaurant where I serve fish soup, fish in bread, fish patties and also fishballs. It is a family business, my step father is a cook and my uncle is a fisherman, plus my efforts and knowledge, we gotta beautiful place to work in. And the prices very reasonable. Its name is Duru Balık, got a profile on Facebook & Instagram.. By the way, this is not an advertisement, it is just to clarify what I do for the last 3 months. My guests or visitors do not have to come and eat and pay, they should have the Cs spirit and visit me to say hi and have Turkish tea with me :)
My House & Workplace are on Atatürk St which is the heart of the city, 5 min to everyhere. I have also lots of free time to show you around, give you info about attractions, tours or whatever. I have been living in Bodrum for 35 years, only 8 years in overseas. I am full Local and give you the right info you need with pleasure. I spend my free time by swimming mostly, I love to be at sea, I am a diver and a hunter, I fish a lot too. Underwater is a big my part of life.. But I love to go out, meet with friends, drink&chat&dance&eat&haveFun :) Bodrum is beautiful anyway :)
Anybody can come or call in any EMERGENCY situation. My no is +90 554 886 48 68. I have whatsap.
But if You Wanna Be Hosted, PLEASE READ COUCH RULES b4 sending a request.
~~~ PHILOSOPHY ~~~
Life is short, rhythm is vital...
Enjoy the moment.
~~~ REFERENCES ~~~
I have quite many Positive ones but now I have 2 negative ones also, yuppi..
There are always rotten fruits in a fruit basket, so it is upto you about what to think or believe about me. I just hope my future guests will not have prejudgement and be cool. Because I didn't deserve those 2 bloody refs, those people were rude, they used me and took advantage of my house and location. And I Swear to ALLAH, I never harassed anyone. I have Cs friends who have witnessed everything, I got proof, but I can't complain anywhere, nobody will help..So as I said, it is upto you what to decide. For Male or Female, my house is safe.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I like to listen variety of music, from Pink Floyd to Metallica, Sade to Dj Tiesto, I got 3 TB music, all ranges.. But I am mostly into trance music..
I have been doing jigsaw puzzles since I was a kid, thanks to my mom who provided me great skills, in my life and in the puzzle world..I do very often, but more I buy, more I do, and it becomes an obsession then addiction applies, coz I love it so much :)
1.000 pieces take only half a day to complete, but I would prefer to enjoy every small peace of it, so I buy bigger numbers of pieces, 3.000 mostly.
The biggest one I made was 4.000 pieces and took 3 and a half months to complete.
Diving: It is my biggest hobby which I do so often, sometimes I go for a simple swim, sometimes for exploring the beauty of underwater world..
That's all for now :)
