Old intro:

Have you ever known anyone whose name means "Traveller"?

My name is Ilghiz.
In my mother tongue - Tatar - "IL" is "country"
and "GIZ" is "walk". So I am travelling now.

But I am travelling in a way which is not yet
very popular. I believe that the best way of
travelling is not moving from place to place.
The best way of travelling is living in the
place that you want to discover.

I am from Naberezhnie Chelny, Russia.
I have graduated from a teachers training
university, English language department.

Now I live in Izmit, Turkey,
and teach English in a private school.
I love this job because I see people grow up
and I take a considerable part in their growth.

Living in a foreign country helps me not only learn more
about places but also learn more about people.
When my plane was taking off in Moscow I knew hardly anyone in Turkey but now I have a lot of
friends in this country.

TrekEarth and TrekLens let me know even more people and
epecially those who have the same passion
for visual images as I have.

P.S. I can spell my name in quite a lot of different ways depending on the language I'm using: Ilgiz, Ilghiz, Ilghis, Ilguiz, Ilguises... Even my native Cyrillic alphabet allows minimum two spellings.
