Meet one of our leaders - Daniela Sartori

Tue, 26 Jan 2021


Growing up in the Italian Alps has meant that hiking through the mountains has always been the norm for me. Since moving to the UK 35 years ago, I return regularly to my home in the Alps where my heart is. However, I know Italy pretty well having travelled extensively through it, I love it and I am always very happy to introduce people to my country with all its quirks and delights.

From a young age, I was always interested in the wider world which led to studying modern foreign languages at University, specifically French and English. Then in my 20s I started travelling outside Europe and visited a few countries in North Africa, I was fascinated by deserts, so different from where I come from. In the end I spent six months working in a tourist resort near Abidjan in the Ivory Coast, a very special time in a country that unfortunately is now inaccessible.

While living in the UK I studied Spanish with the open University which has allowed me to lead RWH tours in Central and Latin America, with its many different cultures and amazing mountains. I studied Chinese for a while hoping to be better prepared to understand the country when finally getting there. I love Africa too, especially South Africa …. and the Galapagos … and Georgia … and my next destination.....

I love travelling around the world, I am quite adventurous and the more unusual a place is the more I like the idea of visiting it. 2020 would have taken me back to Armenia and then into Iran, but unfortunately Covid has clipped mine and everybody else's wings. 

I feel very lucky that since retiring from teaching, I’ve had my ideal job with RWH, exploring the world with like-minded people.
