About Me


Hello, we are Malina and Stas, voyagers through the sea of life on a journey of discover, joy and music.

Malina: I enjoy hiking in the mountains, exploring ancient ruins, going for picnics, creating art, meeting new people and dancing.
I am following my inspirations, living my dreams, and celebrating the moment.

Stas: I'm a musician and poet who plays guitar and rav vast.
I'm open minded and easy-going and enjoy meeting new people and going on adventures.


Get to the mountains!
Discover incredible places, spend time in nature, hike through forests, visit the seaside and lakes, meet new people and listen to their stories.


We project the best parts of ourselves out into the universe and everything in our experience reflects these back to us.

Each positive thought resonates through the jeweled net of consciousness.

Every day contains moments that can uplift and inspire.

We all make an impact. Make a positive one. Leave your mark. Get out there and do something!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Some of the best highlights have been being hosted by Bedouins in a cave in Petra, in a cozy white cottage on an island in Greece, in a lazy frontier town off the beaten track in Trojes, Honduras, and filling the flat with surfers in The Red Octopus, Berlin.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Chanting aums with village children at the Art for Kids program, Auroville.

Scorching the soles of my feet as I climbed the holy mountain at Tiruvanamalai.

Battling my way through a haze of feathers side by side with a contingent of couchsurfers at International Pillowfight Day, Perth.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you how to play a song on ukulele, how to make a hair wrap out of string, or how to say cheers in many languages.
