Together with Marija Serdar, Sanja makes an integral part of our discovery trips-tourleading team.
A history and geography teacher with a passion for travel – that’s Sanja. During her high school she started traveling around Croatia and Europe and found her passion. „Learning new languages, experiencing different cultures and seeing amazing natural beauties is the best thing a person can experience (plus going to live concerts!)“, says Sanja.
Following that trail during her university years, she continued traveling and expanding her horizons, meeting new people, cultures and natural habitats. The experience of seeing other countries reminded her that here in Croatia we also have something to say and show so here she is…doing just that!
Also a licensed cultural guide for Central Dalmatia region, Marija enjoys working with people and spending time in nature, so being a guide for hiking & discovery groups came as a natural choice for her. Here is what she says about herself: „I have always been an active nature lover so to say, so I often hike and ride a bike in the surroundings of my hometown. My great hobby is also swimming and playing waterpolo. I have been a member of Croatia women’s national water polo team for years. Beside nature and sports I have a great passion for scandinavian languages and I studied Swedish, Norwegian and Icelandic, so today I also work as a Swedish teacher. Working with people, either in a classroom or walking in nature, gives me a great pleasure.“
Ivo, an ex soldier and ship maker, spent the last few years working as a skipper on sailing boats travelling around Adriatic islands but also as a tourleader on our hiking programs.
Ivo grew up in Germany, where he learned about dedicated approach to work, punctuality and high awareness about safety. This, together with his experience in the army, makes him a perfect tourleader for our more challenging hiking trips in the mountains, where all these elements become more important than elsewhere.
On the other hand, his Dalmatian background and work experience skippering around the Adriatic, gave him the easy-going Mediterranean personality and friendly approach, knowledge about history and culture of the region and „a good nose“ for finding a great local wine & dine place.
