    Description

    İMPORTANT NOTİCE. Because of corona virus situation I cancel boat building projects . I started to redecorating a 50 rooms hotel in my Town and I m trying to get it ready to season ( if there will be season ) So if you would like to join my team please well come.

    Many of my family members and friends also live nearby and we often share meals and help each other with various projects. I'm an amateur saxophone player, motorcycle mechanic, boat builder and chef and I like to expand my skills and try something new. I have worked and traveled around the world. In the past year, I have taken some long motorcycle/camping trips in the Balkans, taught myself to play sax, and volunteered with refugees in Greece. I join motorbike festivals and make music on the streets. I also making long sail trips and teaching how to sail, how to live on the boat long days and the needs for sailing.


    The hotel just next to sea and front of the sailing club. I m planning some sport and sailing activities for whole summer season.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Because of my background, volunteers can learn & experience many things:

    Some details about hotel project. I need help for redecorating, painting, ironing, cooking, cleaning ,cleaning and cleaning. I will create a self service bar in the hotel which will run like 5 hours a day . I also need some one who can able to help on reception desk . when I open the property for the visitors.

    I build small wooden sailboats (This project takes 30 days. In 30 days you learn how to use powertools like drill, sanding machine, jigsaw. You learn how to work with fiberglass, paint plywood and also to measure and sew the sail. During this time, while waiting on the parts to dry, we are also working on several other projects around the house or in the community)

    You are welcome to join me in preparing and eating meals, you are also welcome to join me in my daily turkish life, trips to the bazaar, motorcycle festivals with my club, sailing around if the wheather is good.

    I'm interested in cleaning the beaches on the island. Hopefully we can spend some time cleaning the beaches near my home near where we sail with the boats.
