About Me


Hallo - سلام - Bonjour - Hola - こんにちは! etc. :)

Describing yourself with words is really hard for me. Anyway I'm still gonna try, Hopefully it works, otherwise don't hesitate to ask something to me. İ'm Cihan and married with @Fwutami. We live in Bali. But if you come also İstanbul you have one house there too. I'm usually bit busy but still have time to spend with my guests. I know my city very well so If I am available, you will have a great local guide in İstanbul. I try to observe cultures and countries. I have hope that the couchsurfing help me accomplish my will. I'm a-normal man for my age, I always feel that I am a child that's why my philosophy is "live your life and forget your age" i really enjoy meeting new places and new people. You can say about me "a boy with no border in making friends" I hope we can get to know and so can getting to know a bit more about me.

here is my facebook for further ;
İ mostly share travel videos on youtube ;

if i'm wrong, educate me, don't belittle me : )

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

first of all, everyone can be my guest. there's no problem. i am not stupid person who will ask you to referance or will say to you this is not free hostel. If you see that kind of thing someone else's profile just ignore that stupids. They're exactly stupid who doesn't know about ethic. And who doesn't have any idea about couchsurfing. You do not need to wrote me long long letter. What's mine, it's also your's. Ya'll welcome.

it all started with a dream :)

it has completely changed my life; i respect and proud of couchsurfers. We all can make better world. İ always saying by myself "you don't need a reason to help people."
Take your step, take risks and just DO THAT.
"Fear is the cheapest room in the house , i would like to see you living in better conditions"

As a guest & host, I wish to form new friendship, also to save traveling budget whenever I visit foreign countries.

Life is so beautiful and its nothing without travelling, travelling is nothing without couchsurfing : )

You never really travel alone, the world is full of friends, waiting to get to know you


I can sing a song in any langugage if i listen 2 or 3 times (for sure) i love Vlogging, İ love writing as well, ofcourse not a professional pen but i write some daily stuffs and all my travels. İ can speak with you about all the topics : )

What I Can Share with Hosts

I live with my wife, we live in a pretty house not big but enough, bit of far from city center. We have one pryvet room, so you have a pryvet life 😅

My mom and my wife is a great cook , she cooks great meals for our guests, so we can all share our meals together. you will have a traditional Turkish dinner with a typical Turkish family.
