About Me

Hello my friends! =)
My name is Magdalena. I´m a funny, crazy, friendly, open-mind person and I want to discover the world, other cultures and a lot of interesting, good-tasting food. I was travelling a long time in South America but (thanks to covid) in the moment I want to learn more about Europe and places I´ve never been there.

This spring April/May 2022 it´s time for the next VW Beetle Trip with my Oltimer and I selected the BALKANs as our destination. I´m really curious at this journey and hope to see many new places and to meet a lot of kind and interesting people on the trip.
I will be traveling with my boyfriend Felix, who speaks perfect english and spanish. He is a very funny, social and kind guy. We both love to travel, to stay in the nature, to discovering new things and enjoy life. We always have some crazy ideas and we love sports, like running, swimming, hiking and skiing in the mountians. This is one of the reasons why we are living in the moment in Austrian Alps.

At our VW Beetle Trip we are searching for some accommmodations, which are are more on the countryside because with the car in big cities it is always a little bit more complicated. We also have a tent with us, which we can use in a garden, if you don´t have engouh space. But sometimes a nice bed would be comfortable ;-).

Hope to see you soon!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I´m interested in meet people from other countries and speak about other cultures/traditions/politics and typical things in their home towns/lands. Also it´s nice to talk about the experience which you made over your travel-trips or in Couchsurfing. It´s also very intresting to see how diferent people live all over the world.
If I had to choose between a hotel room or couchsurfing, I definitely would prefer Couchsurfing!


I like to run, to swim, to read, to talk, to travel and of course to cook =).
I`m very interested to discover food, drinks and dishes/recipes form other countries and I want to try it all, if it´s posible ;-). I like the mountains a little bit more than the sea, so if I can do a trekking near our home it would be fantastic. I love to talk in spanisch, because it´s my favourite language.

¡Travel often - Viaja mucho - Reise oft! - Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness
