About Me

Hello all,

I'm a Turkish journalist working for TRT World located in Istanbul/Turkiye.

Travelling, playing music, exploring new places, discovering new skills, playing video games and trying to learn everything is simply what describes me in a simplest way. :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm getting married on 25th September and will do a road trip as honeymoon holiday with my wife starting from 26th September in Balkans.

For 15 days I'll be driving through North Macedonia, Albania, Montenegro, Bosnia, Serbia and Kosovo.

There is an historically deep ties and relations between the folk of Balkans and Turkish people.

I would like to interact with the local people in every place I go to experience Balkan culture and evaluate how similar or different our cultures are.

For me hotels kill the main purpose of travelling: learning of a new culture and bonding with new people.

This is why I'm Couchsurfing and I'm hoping to find nice friends to make, interesting cultural traits to try and good places to stay. :)
