About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Make the best tea ever brewed

ABOUT ME

A 20 year-old who likes to read books, meet with new people and talk about nearly everything.I was grown in one of the smallest cities of Turkey, then moved to the biggest, Istanbul when I was 12 years old.Since then I try to see as many people, ideas and concepts as possible.And as I found out, couchsurfing is a great opportunity for such experiences.I'm currently in my freshman year in university, and my major is international trade management.I attend to school's cave research club's trips, they're really fun.Caves are one of the most interesting places to be in.

PHILOSOPHY

I live my life to have a giant number of stories at the end of it.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I stayed in Giannis' place in Sparti and it was awesome to meet with his adorable friends and even for just one day, involve into their daily life.We talked about the common words between Greek and Turkish while eating what they've cooked.They brewed me their favourite tea.It was a great experience!

Interests

I like to spend my spare time with reading mostly, but if I have the chance to talk and meet with people I choose to talk.I like to talk about history, politics, possibilites and life itself.
And much as an amateur, but I like to write about my travels and some fictional short stories.
I LOVE learning new languages.I start learning a new language every 6 months but sadly, I can't find the attitude to learn them completely.

Music, Movies, and Books

I love LOTR trilogy as well as StarWars.Science fiction and fantasy movies always took my attention since I was a child.I grew up reading Harry Potter books.
I also like authors like Haruki Murakami, Orhan Pamuk, Trevanian etc.I would like to write a book myself someday.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I'm doing cave researching and every time I get into a cave, it becomes my most amazing experience.I spent 9 hours in a cave without getting bored once and found so many things I could just tell for hours.For instance, we went to a cave with an entrance so small for people, I saw a 5meters long tree got into the cave with floods.It was a curious incident.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can help anyone trying to learn English or Turkish.And also I can teach you my methods of brewing tea.

What I Can Share with Hosts

A talk that can vary from linguistics to world history, stories I try to collect from all around the world, Turkish coffee (though I cannot say I'm good at cooking it) and great food from Anatolian cuisine!
