About Me

Hello, everyone! My name's Ogulkeyik, I am from Ashgabat, Turkmenistan.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I want to connect with people who embrace the true spirit of Couchsurfing because I have a burning passion for traveling, meeting others, making friends, and learning about cultures beyond my own.

One of my goals in life is to make friends with people from every U.S. state and every country in the world.


I am obsessed with all things traveling! I love everything that has to do with people who come from different places, cultures, and backgrounds and speak languages different than my own.

I also love people's names because our names are a part of our identity, and so is my name. Regardless of how difficult to pronounce my name may seem, I always appreciate it when people try to learn how to say my name, so ask me how to pronounce it and let your tongue dance! I don't have a nickname.

Music, Movies, and Books

• All music composed by Ludovico Einaudi is absolutely wonderful. My other favorites are Moonlight Sonata by Beethoven and Nocturne C Sharp Minor by Chopin.

• Favorite books - The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry and The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini

• Favorite movie - not a movie person but love watching La La Land.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Some really humbling comments I received from friends:

"Ogulkeyik is a great ambassador of her country, and when you meet her, she makes you want to visit Turkmenistan."

"Ogulkeyik, you are the embodiment of intercultural communication and should work for the Unites Nations."

(I don't work for the UN. Yet. :))

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm very passionate about photography, especially night-sky photography, and I'm happy to teach what I know as well as learn from other photography enthusiasts.

One of my goals is to photograph the Milkyway one day.

What I Can Share with Hosts

An open mind, intercultural exchange, fun memories, curiousity, and good Turkmen food!
