About Me

I like travelling different places, doing things in local way and meeting locals rather than hanging out in tourist ways.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To meet interesting, like minded travellers.


I love nature (any outdoors activities, especially walking), traveling, cinema (independent, world cinema) and reading. Mostly prefer solo traveling for culture, city sightseeing trips and outdoors ones with hike groups. So far I am fond of everywhere I visited in their own ways; enjoy all kinds of outdoors activities: hiking, diving, kayaking, rafting, and biking and mountains.

Music, Movies, and Books

I love to read but I cannot say I read as much as I want to after lots of technical reading at work..:-s

Mostly attracted to reading about philosophy, psychology, literature, socio-political and a bit history as well.

Music may be a variety according to my mood, but I like mostly jazz and ethnic music from different parts of the world.

I am into cinema, especially independent cinema. Favorite movies/directors are too many to list but some of my top favorites I can recall now are: Emir Kusturica, Haneke, Kieslowski, Majid Majidi, Aki Kaurismaki, Asghar Farhadi, Ingmar Bergman, Kim Ki-Duk, Dardenne Brothers, Coen Brothers..;)
