Magdalena Glen – Tour Operations Assistant
Originally from Poland, Magdalena (or Magda) fell in love with the UK during a school exchange programme to South Wales in 2014. Charmed by ancient castles, green fields full of sheep and delicious Bara Brith (a traditional Welsh cake), she returned to Wales a year later to live permanently in Cardiff.
Since 2015, Magda has worked in a number of customer-facing and hospitality roles whilst also studying to complete her diploma in Travel and Tourism at Cardiff and Vale College. Magda’s first work with adeo Travel came in 2018 when she undertook a period of work-experience with us as part of her college apprenticeship. She stayed in touch and owing to her growing enthusiasm and expertise for inbound travel, she returned to adeo Travel a year later to work initially part-time before being offered a full-time position in 2019 after she completed her studies. Magda is now an integral part of the team; working in the role of Tour Operations Administrative Assistant she is responsible for many areas of finance, website development, product and logistics.
Magda has always had a passion for travel; her interest was sparked as a child when her parents would take the family on trips across Poland and beyond. By the age of 18, Magda had already visited 17 countries across Europe – either for education or holidays. Now in her twenties, she is planning to tick many more countries off her bucket list and has recently spent an extended period in Portugal visiting family and friends. Magda loves meeting people from different countries and cultures and hosts international guests in her house here in Cardiff via an online home-stay rental platform; this not only gives her new ideas for her own travels but also offers her a unique insight in to the trials and tribulations of many of adeo Travel’s own accommodation partners. During her time in the UK Magda has continued to visit destinations across the country including Bath, Bristol, the Cotswolds, Manchester or Tenby.
Besides travelling, Magda enjoys reading, playing board games and spending time with friends, family and her Portuguese partner, thanks to whom she is slowly learning a new language. She also likes to keep fit by jogging and cycling and once did a parachute jump!
