  • Description


    Hello, I’m Berfin 26yo biologist yoga instructor and traveller. I am passionate traveller and I volunteered at many different places in different kind of projects all around the world. (With Workaway of course)
    Now, I am back home and I want to offer my house to travelers who wants to visit my city.
    I love to do sports, especially running. If you’re runner that would be great to have company.
    I love cooking and baking at home, I would like to make you some Turkish recipes.
    Little note: My apartment is shared with my family so if you’re ok with family life then you’re welcome. Breakfast and dinner from me, just you can buy your own snacks and stuff like that.
    Please share your story and why you’re here in Istanbul, then we can find something common between us and I can help you with your travels in Turkey as well.
    I’m so excited to meet new kindered spirits.
    Warm regards,
