Katerina Vasileiou, the daughter of WT Trip Leader Kostas Vasileiou, grew up in a family of mountaineers, and has hiked and trekked her entire life. Her love of nature and culture led her decide on a career in travel, and since 2007 she has been an assistant leader on our Hiking in the Greek Isles adventure.
