Meeting new people and cultures and developing an international personality
I am a young doctor, a sailor, a swing dancer as well as a nature and hiking lover who is originally from Izmir but currently living in London.
Well,it may be a usual description as many people do but I am an open-minded,tolerent,adventurous person and love discovering new cultures and places.
Besides this,I am a typical Mediterrenean guy with roots from Balkans and I was brought up in an environment where family members spend most of the time together,having big tables with yummy Aegean cuisine,speaking loudly in an always excited way and swimming on beautiful beaches!
I love multicultural lives and feeling it around myself.I'm also very sensitive to environmental problems,human rights and freedom of people.
When you give positive energy to the planet,you just get back the same...So smile,enjoy,love people to be happier!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I've crossed the Atlantic by hitchiking on an old, 35 feet small Norwegian boat built in 1972 with no luxury you might expect on a such sail boat under harsh conditions, challenging against the high seas and strong winds in the ocean starting from Puerto de Mogan,Canary Islands,Spain to Barbados in 30 days 11 hours 40 mins making around 3000 miles (5500kms) in the sea!!!
Teach, Learn, Share
I can teach you to dance to Aegean folk songs and Lindy hop!
What about some local recipes from Mediterranean shores?
What I Can Share with Hosts
