About Me

I am enthusiastic about meeting people with different characteristics and from different cultures. I like chatting, spending time out, clubbing on fridays and saturdays, and laughing good. I love attending social activities like concerts, theater plays, parties or whatever I may find interesting.

Now I work as a translator and I guess this means I have the potential of being a good guide for the visitors:)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

The reason I am here is mainly meeting travellers and expats. I am always open for showing you around, chat about Turkish culture and answer your questions about sociological stuff:) I think I am capable of talking about or express my thoughts on almost everything. Being a translator for a long time, I am a lawyer, doctor, engineer, hotel staff, advertiser, or in short, a little of anything. I am also a very curious person that I usually watch documentaries just to learn about things which have no relation with my life. Still, the curiosity you know.. I am also curious about other cultures and characteristics of people from everywhere in the world. I haven't had the chance to go abroad yet, but thanks to my job and internet (god bless cultural exchange platforms), I met lots of people from different nations and I feel like I have been to every part of the world while I was just living here:)

Interests

Well, my interests change now and then. My all-time interests are friday/saturday night-outs and socializing in general, drinking vodka and wine, watching tv series&documentaries, walking around with my dog, doing summer sports, experimental cooking, reading magazines, checkin' bookshops.

Music, Movies & Books

*Hit songs, soft rock, oldies, techno.

**One flew over the cuckoo's nest, Lost Highway, Scent of a Woman, Godfather, Schindler's List, Leon the Professional, Shawshank Redemption, Life is Beautiful, Time of the Gypsies, and the list goes on and on.

***Oscar Wilde is my man. I have the deepest respect for John Steinbeck, Edgar Allan Poe, Jane Austen, Virginia Woolf, Jean Paul Sartre, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Amin Maalouf and many more.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Actually I can't recall anything that amazing compared to some other couchsurfers experiences but as for me; I decided to move from my hometown Antalya to Istanbul 2 years after my graduation to enjoy this vibrant city which I have always been a fan of. Last year I planned and did it by myself and this was amazing for me;)

Teach, Learn, Share

I like meeting people having much experience in life, those who are not discriminative and can call themselves world citizens, who enjoy exploring at day and clubbing at night. I like learning different personalities, different opinions and insights, different perspectives from them.

Countries I've Lived In
