About Me


To live my life and enjoy the process.


Hello people!
Chatty introvert, grammar fan, sleepwalker and floor sleeper, lousy but persisent hill climber, skilled and experienced knitter, trekkie and workaholic. That briefly sums it up.
Don't stand racism or nationalism
Don't appreciate sexism
Don't hold homophobia in respect
Don't do sports, it ruined my childhood
Don't drink, it ruined my childhood

I also:
Prefer my melons with a cigarette
Am perversely drawn to giving public speeches
Fond of subtitles
Simply love agglutination
Adore random facts


I diligently abstain of having one.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I actually stick to ordinary stuff.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can turn you into a master of yarn and crochet, spoil you with Russian swearwords, show you the most disgusting spam on internet, tell you all you didn't want to know about brake pads and steering columns, teach you how to perform miracles with MS Paint and torture you with conditional sentences.

I welcome people who want to show me secret paths, teach me how to differentiate between a turtle and a tortoise, talk for hours about their subject and torture me with conditional sentences.
Oh, and I am always happy to speak Turkish, even if I am crying in disgrace.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Anything inside my head and almost anything inside my backpack.

Countries I’ve Visited

Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Czech Republic, Georgia, Germany, Iran, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia, Spain, Turkey
