Hey all, i'm Koray from Turkey Istanbul. I am 24 years old studying civil engineering in Istanbul. My family lives in Antalya which is a very nice city near summer beaches.
I have a boyfriend, we are together for more than 1 year. I travelled only for 1 week to Amsterdam and Barcelona with my bf and did internship in Slovenia for a month. Thats all my journey in foreigner countries.
I can help people who are visiting Istanbul or Antalya or anywhere in Turkey
cheers

Thanks! For me, it's a bit diffcult, for some people it is very difficult, for some, not at all. I used to keep it as a secret, now it's been 3 years i came out of closet, and it's okay now. :)

Well I believe I was born in a country like heaven on the earth, even some people here piss me up, there are people who love me too :) I feel lucky and unlucky. Turkey has the best naturel diversity, weather, people, races, culture in my opinion. I can ski, or go to swim or go to historical sites. Do any kind of nature sport fun etc. People can be very welcoming and warm in rural areas(not much in big cities like Istanbul) and for Istanbul, anything can be found no problem at all about that but i hate the traffic. I go to different corner of my country in my vacations again and again everytime and i dont get bored. I also have to say i love our foods! (:

It sounds great! I am into history and have been studying the ancient history of your country and it is quite fascinating!
