  • Description

    Description

    I am an engineer. I like nature, gardening and growing organic vegetables.
    During summer (from May till October) I live in my summer-house in Karaburun 50km north of İstanbul. İt is small village at the Blacksea Coast.

    Usually twice a month, I go to my second house located in the center of Istanbul — ancient city with amazing historical background. I stay here for a couple of days. You can join me and have the possibility to visit the lovely and amazing city İstanbul.

    Working in my garden is not too hard, you will have much time to go to the beach (300 meters from my home) for swimming or you can have a walk at the forest behind of my house, if you like.
    I am not smoker.

    I am not vegetarian but I like vegetables more.
