I was born in Izmir, the 3rd largest city of Turkey, in
After spending the first eight years of my life in the city,
my mother and I moved to Catalkaya Mountain, one of the highest
peaks of Izmir. We lived in a small adobe house, in the middle
of the nature. I went to school by horse through the brown
paths of the green forest. I spent my spare times surveying
the nature, feeding the ants, watering our huge vegetable
field, shepherding our small goat herd, looking over the big
city from the top of the rocks, and watching my mother painting;
she is an artist. These were the most important elements that
contributed to my philosophy of life.
At the age of 17, I was offered my first job at a radio
station as a music programme presenter.
3 years later I went to London, England, to take Cambridge
University’s Certificate in English. I studied at an English
Language School in London for a year.
After I returned from England, I worked in travel agencies
for 3 years.
Finally in 2002 I attended the Ministry of Culture and Tourism’s
“Tourist Guiding Course Programme”. At the end of the year
I finished the course successfully and was registered with
the licence number of 35/1556.
Since then, I have been guiding history, nature and holiday
lovers through the stories, mythology and paths of this fascinating
My services start any time after the traveller’s arrival,
which might be at any airport in Turkey. I can help them find
the most suitable accommodation, organise their holiday time
according to their interests, and guide them through the cities,
villages, ancient sites and museums of Turkish Republic.
The travel organizations are arranged through Nammos Travel, a member of TURSAB Licence Number 6573.
