I teach at the beautiful Bosporus or Bogazici University and I love living life in Istanbul to the full, and finding new restaurants, shops , galleries and beaches, but I also need private time and space.
This area is a theatre of Istanbul life and I have aspirations to write, my letter from Istanbul was published in The Gaurdian last year.
My flat was empty when I rented it in January, and is now fully furnished , albeit rather quirkily -
I will be around some of the time , but not in your hair........
I love the opera - 5 minutes away, cinema , 5 minutes away - good food - 2 minutes away - swimming - 1 hour away on the islands , and tennis 15 minutes away - but sometimes, just need a good book and a Turkish coffee or tea. Book swapping actively encouraged..
I enjoy sharing travel experiences and meeting creative people .
I speak conversational French and German and enjoy meeting people from other countries.
