Kadir grew up in the northwestern region of Turkey and studied Physical Education and Sport Sciences at Akdeniz University. As an undergraduate, he lived in Poland and Portugal on an exchange program and traveled all around Europe and North Africa—all while discovering his desire to be on the road encountering new people and cultures. As a result, he chose a career in guiding. Kadir likes sharing the beauty and history of his country with fellow travelers, and he’s passionate about cooking. When it comes to staying active, Kadir is a dancer, yogi, hiker, trail runner, orienteer, and cyclist. He ran for the junior orienteering national team and is also a topographic map maker. As a guide, Kadir hopes to share all aspects of his country with his guests and make them fall in love with Turkey.
