About Me

Hello friend!

I am a nomadic soul who is in love with life.

Since 2008, I have hosted tens of people from all over the world via Hospitality Club, CS, etc. They inspired me so much, so I eventually had the courage to travel and explored Asia between 2014-2016. In that journey, I had many beautiful hosts who I could not forget and stop missing. I am so grateful for all the souls who have visited and hosted me.

Now I'm on the verge of going on my second big trip to American continent. This time, I will be traveling solo, and I can't express how excited I am.

As a child of a mother nature, i have a deep relationship with nature, and living in harmony and harmless is my main goal in life.

I love camping and hiking in nature and collecting herbs to make medicinal ointments and incense.

I am also a trained massage therapist because I like helping people to make them feel better and healthier.

I am an amateur dancer and movement explorer. I am into especially contact improvisation, contemporary and belly dance.

I am not religious, but I follow Shamanism, Sufism, and Buddhism practices and open to all spiritual beliefs. But I don't accept inequality, discrimination, and nothing that restrains others' freedom.

If you read all of these and some of them resonated with you, I can't wait to meet you!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

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.
