2 photographers backpacking across the world

Hi there!

My name's Joanne and I'm traveling with my close friend Kara (http://www.couchsurfing.org/people/coops451/). We just graduated from university and we're both avid travelers with a fascination for new places and experiences. We want to get to know each culture and area along the way, and we hope to do this through couchsurfing. We are both artists planning to document our trip through Europe and Asia for 7 months along the way to inspire others!

We arrive to Istanbul on September 10, 2012 and we'll be there for 2 weeks until the 24th. We'd love to meet up with fellow photographers in Istanbul! We hope to meet many people and interview them to learn their stories.

Here's a link to our project blog: http://the-wanderlustproject.tumblr.com/
and the Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/thewandrlustproject

Also, we're still looking for hosts for our stay in Istanbul, if anyone has a couch to offer. We're hoping to stay with a couple hosts for maybe 3 days at a time, or for however long our hosts would like to have us. We're very flexible with our surfing dates (whenever is best for our hosts) and we'd appreciate any amount of time we could stay.

Thank you and hopefully see you soon!

Hi Joanne,

You'll be welcomed in İstanbul.I'm an amateur photographer but I'd like to meet with you and help your project as much as I can.

Thank you Gizem! I've received many replies from fellow photographers in Istanbul and I am so touched by how welcoming everyone is. I will keep in touch as our dates grow closer and I look forward to meeting you and the couchsurfing community.

All the best,

Hi there,

What you're doing right now is awesome and it's something probably most people would love to do, including me surely :)

I might gladly join any group activities (meet ups, shooting days etc.) when the time comes. I've lived in Istanbul for 4 years, and I want to rediscover the city through new contacts, foreigners and photography lovers. Please have a look at my profile to get to know a bit about my vision and photography.
