Gabriele Mastrilli

Gabriele Mastrilli is 100% Sicilian. He grew up in Palermo, where he still lives when not traveling around the world, and has a degree in ecology, an immense interest in nature and hiking, and a love of photography. As a Trip Leader, he loves telling and hearing stories about different cultures around the world, and he finds that he discovers new things about his own island-home through the eyes of those who see it for the first time! When not leading trips, Gabriele organizes photographic workshops and backpacking trips.
