About Me


Meet Everyone, See Everywhere


Everybody calls me SMILE as I do it most of the time :) after a month of constant travels in my interrail tour in Europe I m now like a man of wisdom about travelling and will go on travelling more in future ;) the most important of all is making new friends and learning new cultures, and many other things. "Happiness is only real when shared"


The core of man's spirit comes from new experiences.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


when I was a teacher in van, a south-eastern city near the iranian border of turkey, I met a guy in the same building. he told me about the CS project and he introduced me the United Nations in his flat :)) there were nearly 7 CS surfers from 5 different nationalities :)) it was really good and I started hosting people and revive the CS spirit...


I hosted many people in the city Van, and my hometown kayseri. After all I used Couchsurfing in my Interrail Tour 2012. It was about 32 days and I surfed many people and made many new friends..
