About Me


I am learning to speak Turkish, it's going yavas yavas :(


My name is Roos Feringa and I currently am on an exchange in Istanbul. I've been here for half a year now, and decided that it's about time to show Istanbul to some other people too!

I love cats, I absolutely adore them, but I sincerely hope that I won't end up like one of them old, lonely ladies with 100 cats strolling round the house.
Furthermore I like the obvious things in life: girls nights, having drinks with friends, listen to good bands, even go clubbing once in while. I like good food, don't like meat (not vegetarian, just don't like the taste).

I live with my boyfriend (he's Turkish), his brother and cousin in an apartment in Kadikoy, Istanbul. Kadikoy is quite an alternative, young neighbourhood with a lot of art and students. It's the most liberal place to live in Istanbul and our apartment is situated really nearby the sea and other public transport.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have no experience with couch surfing myself, but I would love to host foreign people to get to know different people from all over the world. I am of course already in contact all the time with foreign student due to the erasmus exchange programme, but meeting non-erasmus students will be nice too.
