About Me


Travel around Southeast Asia between October and December 2017.


Huri - Street photographer, aspiring yogi, tea expert and cat lover. I am a night owl, tiramisu maker who daydreams about neverending trips by train and only feels complete with a camera in hand. I don't drink milk, talk a lot while sleeping and seem to always forget something when leaving home. Crazy for corn and popcorn, a full day in a film festival is the closest definition of happiness. My dream is to have my own online business and I do not take Gui too seriously.

Gui - Language junkie, daydreamer, compulsive liar, photographer and cinema lover. I enjoy walking, cooking and sketching. I'm not good at any of them except walking. I don't drink milk, get easily tipsy and my dream is to become an architect. I am a morning person and cleaning relaxes me. I am afraid of dogs, even the little ones, and babies. I always run to a window if I hear an helicopter and mysteriously do not cry when cutting onions. Libraries make me happy, museums bore me, love challenges and do not take myself too seriously.


“In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer. And that makes me happy. For it says that no matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me, there’s something stronger – something better, pushing right back.” - Albert Camus

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


We are a Portuguese-Turkish couple currently living in Istanbul with a bad tempered black cat named Totoro. Due to a very busy schedule and planned trip to Southeast Asia, we are not able to host anyone for the next few months. Until then, we will be happy to answer queries about Istanbul and maybe meet up for coffee or a beer. While we travel through Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia, we would love to meet locals


We have been CS members since 2004 and we had guests from the following countries:
Portugal, Spain, Finland, United States, Japan, Latvia, Hungary, Colombia, Germany, Turkey, Bulgaria, Kyrgyzstan, Honduras, China, Thailand, Estonia, Iceland, Palestine, France, Ukraine, Greece, Italy, Ireland, Iran, Chile, Serbia, ...

... and would love to add yours!
