  • Description

    Description

    Personal info: My name is Tolun. I am an environmentalist doing his best to protect the nature. So I am a vegetarian but in summer while traveling I sometimes keep a fruitarian diet, consisting of eating only fruits and nuts from the trees. My lifestyle is quite economical since I am trying to save natural resources and would recycle everything as much as possible. I was born in Istanbul and grew up in Ankara. I studied languages and archaeology at the university of Ankara. Then I have been working as a multilingual tour guide in Turkey. I conducted tours for various tour operators and have traveled extensively with American, European, Canadian, Japanese tour groups speaking their own languages. Lately I have been conducting private tours in every region of Turkey. I can also communicate in Russian, German and Chinese. I would like to improve my communication and writing skills in those languages. I generally live in Cappadocia region, located in central Anatolia. In my free time I do body building, take walks in the valleys and plant trees, or work on the restoration of my old Cappadocian cave house (consisting of both caves and regular rooms), transforming it into a nice house for my guests. More rooms are waiting to be added to my lodge. So workawayers with masonary skills will be helpful. Aditionnally I need some people who can speak both Chinese and English languages as I have some translation work. I also have a project of reforesting the valleys down below the village. Especially reforestation on the walking path between Uchisar and Goreme is my goal. New trees must be planted as a shelter for the wildlife and to keep the trees alive they must be irrigated especially in hot summer evenings.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Attributes: I speak fluent Turkish, English, French, Italian, Japanese and can communicate in Russian, Chinese (Mandarin) and German.

    Education: I studied Archaeology and Philology at the University of Ankara, Studied at Iowa State University; Iowa City, Iowa, (USA), Studied at Omsk State Pedagogical University; Omsk, (Russia)

    Organizations: I am a supporter of Greenpeace in Turkey. I was on their translation team and acted as an interpreter during some of their projects in Turkey.

    While helping for the restorations or helping me with the guests one can learn how to restore or build an eco friendly home and practice language. Outside work hours one can take walks in the nature, explore valleys, visit rock carved churches, underground cities and many other interesting places in the area.

    Cave rooms down below the lodge, on the basement are waiting to be renovated. So assistance is needed for the renovations, helping with tourists, cleaning, ironing and cooking. At this time I especially need somebody who has masonary skills and somebody who speaks both Chinese and English fluently.
