About Me

Hello everyone!

After hosting so many people from Hospitality Club and CS, I also became a traveller for two years. Thank you to all my loving surfers for encouraging me to hit the road and thank you so much my beautiful hosts for giving me your love, time and friendship.

So i'm back in Istanbul now and looking forward to meeting with you!

Some about me:
I love everything that belongs to the nature. I hate inequality and everything that restrains others' freedom. I especially dislike religious and sexual discrimination. I'm interested in modern dance. I love dancing! I'm trying to learn about living a self-sustainable and eco-friendly life. I hope I can change it totally soon.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

It is wonderful! I'm so glad to be part of it.


What can I do, Submitters to God? I do not know myself.
I am neither Christian nor Jew, neither Zoroastrian nor Muslim,
I am not from east or west, not from land or sea,
not from the shafts of nature nor from the spheres of the firmament,
not of the earth, not of water, not of air, not of fire.
I am not from the highest heaven, not from this world,
not from existence, not from being.
I am not from India, not from China, not from Bulgar, not from Saqsin,
not from the realm of the two Iraqs, not from the land of Khurasan
I am not from the world, not from beyond,
not from heaven and not from hell.
I am not from Adam, not from Eve, not from paradise and not from Ridwan.
My place is placeless, my trace is traceless,
no body, no soul, I am from the soul of souls.
I have chased out duality, lived the two worlds as one.
One I seek, one I know, one I see, one I call.
He is the first, he is the last, he is the outer, he is the inner.
Beyond "He" and "He is" I know no other.
I am drunk from the cup of love, the two worlds have escaped me.
I have no concern but carouse and rapture.
If one day in my life I spend a moment without you
from that hour and that time I would repent my life.
If one day I am given a moment in solitude with you
I will trample the two worlds underfoot and dance forever.
