About Me


live the life every moment fully as it goes on..


A good person that is open for new experiences and ideas. In fact it is not easy or correct for someone to tell about himself. You may consult my friends and guests to learn more about me.


Living quality life and helping and learning from others. I like to build strong friendships as if we will live and hang around together forever, and I like to enjoy the moment as if we will die tomorrow.
Enjoying time with friends, being able to dance even if I lose everything material like the Zorba the Greek : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2AzpHvLWFUM

As you are
As you were
As I want you to be
As a friend
As a known memory
Take your time
Hurry up
The choice is your
Dont be late
Take a rest
As a friend
As a known memory
Memory ah

Doused in mud
Soaked in bleach
As I want you to be
As a trend
A a friend
As a known memory ah
Memory ah

And I swear
That I dont have a gun
No I dont have a gun
No I dont have a gun
Memory ah

And I swear
That I dont have a gun
No I dont have a gun

I think u already know above from Kurt Cobain, yes?
What about the following?

Come, come, whoever you are.
Wonderer, worshipper, lover of leaving.
It doesn't matter.
Ours is not a caravan of despair.
Come, even if you have broken your vow
a thousand times
Come, yet again, come, come.

The latter is a poem from Rumi an Anatolian humanist poem written about 1000 years ago (yes the whirling dervishes are his students). Unfortunately sometimes my couches are really full or I need some time on my own, so unfortunately I cant be so much welcoming like in those lines for all times :(

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


whats this project?
hmm.. now, I understand, look below to see how I participated :)


I have hosted and been guided by some members, this site is incredibly important invention that people can meet and learn from each other by this way.
I have stated hosting people since November 2006 and I had more than 50 guests for more than total 250 nights-person of hosting in that short period :) (As of May, I think I will not update this part anymore, because it is hard to count) Also I met many other CSers outside as well.
Result: happy me, happy them.


Music, books, travelling, learning about other cultures

And of course one of my most important hobby is to live Istanbul: I have travelled a lot of places in the world, and I beleive Istanbul is one of the best cities to live or to visit. . If you have passed from Istanbul and you are unlucky not to understand why I wrote the above, or if you are to visit the "city", I am proud that I know Istanbul very well and you may contact/consult me not to miss the best attractions of the city.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Just hiring a motorcycle by letting the rentor beleive that I have a licence and learning how to drive it by myself on the first time.

One day, I was hushing a huge dog -a local kind of Turkish dog called Kangal, at least as big as Saint Bernard- that one was as heavy as 100 kg, he decided to bite my arm -I dont know why- and I had to fight with him because I was sitting and his next target could be my face, I kicked him a few times with my legs, and fortunately he decided to retreat after opening a hole in my shoe. I felt like a nurse turning to a warrior. Later I learned that the poor dog had been prisoned in a cage by his owner for a very long time and he got "crazy" the first time he found freedom.

The total Sun eclipse in Turkey!
But I think seeing and living Istanbul is the most amazing thing i am doing.
