About me

I am Rüzgar from Istanbul currently living in Darmstadt/Germany. Studying an Urban Planning master's. I am a bike-traveller. In the past I rode in Europe and Turkey for 25,000 km without much money and luxury. In the future, I want to ride from Europe to Japan.

Respectfully, I don't care about your gender, age, race, nationality or religion. All is welcome!

The idea behind my current life is to avoid the unnecessary and focus on what's important. I am not sure though, if I found it. :) I try to live as minimal as possible. Owning the least amount of things and keeping the work at minimum, enjoying simple things at max. Avoiding to consume much, and produce more.

I love my mistakes, because they are good to discover. Trying to be me even if it's illegal, illogical or unethical. If you wanna sing out, just do it. .

I travel by bike exclusively and I can sleep on the floor, garden or on a bed. I want to explore your city & life with you. Even if you can't host me, we can have a coffee right?

For guests: Everyone should feel welcome to my place. But the thing is I have a too small room and can't host more than a person or a couple. But we can improvise! :)

Happy living,
