Hello! My name is Hikmet (or Hiko if you want :) ), I'm 23 years old. I'm living in Istanbul, Turkey. I was born in Paris, France in 1992. Then 1 year later we came in Turkey. I have two nationalities: French and Turkish. I can speak French, Turkish, English and Spanish.
(I apologize in advance for my english).
I studied French Literature in Galatasaray University (one of the most prestigious and notable universities in Turkey), then I did my master on Marketing & Communication in the same university. Now, I'm in the communication business.
I'm living in the center of Istanbul (Istanbul is a transcontinental city and is the most populous city in Turkey and the country's economical, cultural, and historical center).
I'm living with my pets - they are my babies - one dog named Ruby (labrador) and one cat named Benek (found in the street). I love to spend time with them (they are too precious). My family is living in Istanbul also, I have one brother studying in France.
I like to spend time in the kitchen, I like cooking, baking and also EATÄ°NG! I enjoy creating different tastes and tasting different foods.
I love to travel, to discover different countries and also different cultures. I'm always very interested to learn more about everything! I'm watching a lot of documentary.
I traveled to: Holland, France, Austria, Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Belgium, Serbia, Croatia, Slovenia, Spain, India (all I remember)
I would love to travel to Australia ðŸ’•
I love making things for other people or help them, that's why I joined Swap-bot. I enjoy to meet, to socialize and to know about new people.
Ps: From Turkey to Europe: I guess it tooks 2-3 weeks. From Turkey to US: I guess it tooks more than 3 weeks, so please be patient. But if you think there is a problem please contact me I will gladly help you :)
I'm not watching Tv a lot at home. I rather prefer to watch TV series over the internet.
I watched (!there's a lot!): American Horror Story, Supernatural, Friends, Suits, Criminal Minds, Game of Thrones, Flash, Arrow, Daredevil, Once Upon a Time, Under The Dome, Breaking Bad, Pretty Little Liars, Sherlock, Modern Family, How I Met Your Mother, Lost, Grimm, True Detective, Californication, Hannibal, True Blood, Glee, The Mentalist, Fringe, Skins, Rizzoli & Isles, Lie To Me..and it goes like that :)
â˜†â˜†â˜†â˜†â˜† My top 5: Supernatural, American Horror Story, House M.D., Friends....And still waiting for 5th!
I love Tim Burton movies! I am a fan of his mind. I am a huge fan of Helena Bonham Carter and also Johnny Depp. I like to watch Almodovar's and IÃ±aritu's movies also.
My favourite movies are: Lord of The Rings, Sin City, The Prestige, Interstellar, Intouchables, Inception, Best Offer, Gone Girl, The Grand Budapest Hotel, La Piel Que Habito, The Imitation Game...
I love to read since I learned to read :P I am mostly interested into novels. I love reading classics - Turkish and International authors - and detective novels. I am mostly reading in turkish - just few in english and in french. I like reading Stephen King books..
I like everything about Snoopy. One day I want to give a name one of my dog Ruby's baby Snoopy.
Tea: I LOVE fruit teas! Especially red fruits! I like also black tea and espacially Earl Grey tea (You can find just a few people who does not drink black tea in Turkey) Please if you want to send me black tea it must be with another flavour because Turkey is a black tea country and I prefer to taste different flavours.
Fruit tea: I prefer red fruits like strawberry and raspberry but I am also open to any other flavor! Ps: I love Red Raspberry from Bigelow.
Chocolate: White, Milky and Dark, I love all type of chocolates! My favourite flavors are red fruits, caramel, vanillia... I like also crunchy chocolates. I hate cinnamon and raisin in chocolate (But my dad loves raisin chocolate so maybe I can give to him). I love to taste any kind of chocolate who does not exist in my country. (You can just ask me before sending :) )
Flavors: I also love caramel, vanillia and red fruits as a flavor in any food or drinks.
Flowers: Camomille and gerbera
Tree: I love palm trees! They make me happy :)
Candy/ Snack: I am a real junk food person. The only flavor that I do not prefer is apple. Oh I hate also barbecue flavor, licorice and cinnamon. I prefer "sweet" but I can try anything else also. I would love to taste local snacks.
Candles: I like every type of candles! Except flower scented candles. I prefer fruit scented.
Bookmarks: Any type of bookmarks are welcomed (handmade or other). Except promotional bookmarks. I love different/cute bookmarks with an historical monument or whatsoever. For example I have a beautiful bookmark of La Sagrada Familia from Spain (I bought it when I went to Barcelona 3 or 4 years ago).
Stickers and Washi: I love stickers, especially with a quote ones. I like stickers with pretty hearts, smileys etc.. I use stickers for all my swaps to beautify them. I'm not sure if in Turkey we have washi tapes. When I was like 10 I had one but I don't know if it was from Turkey. So, I love them and I'll be happy to receive washi tapes with cute designs.
I don't like kawaii, anime, manga, Diddle or anything childlike (Except Snoopy! Oh and Eeyore).
I will add more love/hate things later as it comes in my mind
