About Me


I have a DREAM of travelling across Europe this summer..probably by MOTORBIKE..day and night thinking of how ...where .. how long..need to improve my ideas..:)) open to to host or to be hosted...


I'm easy going and open minded. Curious about the world around. Like travelling and meeting new people. I like hosting and being hosted. It is great to meet new colorful people from different walks of life..


I will be pleased to meet few quality people and I'm willing to help them in Turkey in any way. From a travelling perspective my aim is to meet as few but memorable people along with nice places so that I can make my and others' lives more meaningful. I'm a fun loving, easy going, helpful person and I like showing my appreciation to my host in some ways. I want to see this CS really works....
Here is the video I made out of my visit to Budapest

I hear people describing me as energetic, open-minded, enjoying life, ready to explore the planet, love travelling and hosting, as well as being spontaneous and adventurous....

very busy teaching but that doesnt mean ignoring fun and joy. Just enjoying the life at its best.
a few videos showing my lifestyle



back from Krakow
Krakow videos are here... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9naCDYOXAzc
I'm a fun loving person. I love making people around me happy and making sure that there are happy people around me. I can't stand people who are miserable and turing little things into great chaos. Take life as it is but just do your best. The thing is that I dont like the hostel and hotel stuff. Even though i hardly stay other people's houses, including my mum's, I wanna give this a try. It is not a matter of money but more of an interaction with local culture. I may consider that. I want to learn Polish and I'm lazy a bit. I need someone to push me. I'm ready to host someone here to help me while enjoying the places around here. If you are interested in any of these. I will be pleased to go ahead.


travel, meet new people, cultures and lifestyles, share my experiences and care about others....

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


It was before I went to Poland, particularly Krakow that I accidently discovered this community while i was checking videos of Krakow. Then I got my own profile and I met a guy there. We had drinks and some nice chat. Since last August I have done my best to host three people from France, Germany and Azerbaijan. I like the community. I hope to meet some nice people next time I go to Europe or other parts of the world.
So, if you wanna check out my hosting, an open-minded person with a modest room is here in Turkey.


REcently I hosted http://www.couchsurfing.org/profile.html?id=52CELNA She is such a wonderful person, full of life and joy. And this is my 3rd couch serfing experience. I can say that it is one of the most amazing things that one can do in his her life. It is something that makes one to review his life in the reflection of others. Lessons to be learned and joys to be shared. ...
some CSs added colour to our birthday and house party


My interests involve teaching English plus travelling, though i have little experience, ~I love listening to DJs and electronic type usually. When I'm in company with others, I can listen to anything that works. Cycling, meeting new people, using technology in teaching English are among my interests, too.

Music, Movies & Books

i love watching new movies at home and sometimes I go to the movies. I love listening to radios like radiomydonose and that is mostly popular music. i can listen to most music as long as it is ok with everyone. I dont have much time to read but i like doing that...

One Amazing Thing I've Done

paragliding from Babadag in Fethiye in Turkey. That was one of the amazing things and I jumped over a 14 metre cliff into the water with some guys I met on a scooter tour in Krakow in Poland. My videos are available on youtube as turanderen
