About me

I am born and raised in this magical city of Istanbul.Due to my profession I ve had the chances to visit the half of the world and even the smallest villages of my country.I will try to find my old photos and I wiill try to share my knowledge with the people around the world .On the other hand I try to increase my knowledge and my experiences with the help of the comments of VT people.I am aware that it will be difficult to express myself with a language which is not your mother tongue but anyway I will try to write my feelings and memories.
Now I am a retired man and I am planning to realize a world tour with car .Maybe this is a dream and I will never have the chances to realize it ...nevermind.... even dreaming is a good motivation to start.
I am sure that your comments will lead me to find the right way ...

Free Bird

If I leave here tomorrow
Would you still remember me?
For I must be travelling on, now,
There's too many places I haven't seen
And if I stayed here with you, now
Things just wouldn't be the same
Well I'm as free as a bird now,
And a bird you can not change.
And a bird you can not change.
And a bird you can not change.
Lord knows I can't change
