About Me

After some break from travelling, I'm back on the road this time with my second half, Tom. We got married on Malta in October 2022 and have been travelling since.

We'd like to meet people who live in places that we visit, to share experiences, points of views and recipes.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To avoid being a tourist, to participate, to feel the spirit of visited places. CS is a great way to start understanding a culture.


We're both interested in history and culture, especially of Central and South America. And archaeology, of course! We love geology, and Tom is very passionate about astronomy.

We're curious about other people customs, traditional dances, food - we love new tastes.

Magda listens mostly to rock, metal and ethno music. Tom likes most of types of music, but his real love is happy hardcore. We avoid reaggeton at all cost.
