About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Discover What goes around..meet new people.. learn something and carry out ıt as much as you can :)

ABOUT ME

I will start my PhD in International Relations this September in Istanbul. I will have time to discover the city and people in detail during this long period of my academic struggle.
I love to share thoughts with people. That's why I believe in higher education. Books and right people, they bless you.
If you're going to ask about travel! I say, that's my morphine. I got addicted to it. In time, I see that when I travel, It's not just my foots but also my mind travel. My emotions broaden. My perspective and admiration for the smallest things in life makes me discover myself.

PHILOSOPHY

I know that my time is limited in this world, so I don't want to waste it by living a dogma. I experienced that, voice of other people's opinions drown me out my inner voice in the past. By travelling, I feel like I become a person I truly want to be. Travelling make me not just happy but also I feel like I'm accomplishing my everlasting duty in this world, to see what the God created for us . When I travel and see these unique people/scenes, when I feel their kindness or the gentle feeling of the winds alongside the beaches/cities/canyons, I feel completed. I afraid I become one of those people who turned the idea of travel into something ordinary.. like a compulsion to be elsewhere, anywhere but here.. So far, everything was good about couchsurfing. Hope to meet one day.
