Who we are

Elena

Organizer
Hello! I’m Elena. The number of countries I have visited already exceeds my age. Over the past few years I have learned to pack anything – from swimsuit to ski suit – into my small backpack with fits with the hand luggage. It may sound trivial but I really love to travel. It began with the usual bus tours around Europe and travel agency packages to Egypt. Suddenly, I began to travel more and more – student exchanges and international festivals, the USA and Sri Lanka, alone or with company, on weekends or over two weeks (having to change five flights). I began to find any opportunity to travel even in the absence of time, money, or vacation time. As travel became more frequent, I realized my skills at organizing great routes at the best prices for an increasing group of friends got better and better…and then Indonesia happened. The most exciting, extraordinary, saturated with unreal emotions journey of my life so far. From developed megacities to domesticated monkeys in Bali to wild pigs in the rainforest – this country managed to surprise me. I’m sure it will surprise you too. Let’s go together with Gila travels!

Anastasia

Guide
Hi! My name is Anastasia. While I have lived in Indonesia, I have conquered volcanos, scaled mountains to look from precipices into the abyss, and trekked across rocky shores to jump into the ocean. I have lived in tiny villages with no electricity, in forests and jungles with wild tribes, and in bustling cities. I hunted, fished, washed elephants in the river, and searched for wild orangutans and Komodo lizards. I have surfed, snorkeled, dived with sharks and manta rays. I sampled local delicacies like larvae, scorpions, and cockroaches. I have visited more than 100 beaches, from pink to black, dozens of waterfalls, caves, and canyons. I was in temples, mosques, and churches to meditate and commune with ancient spirits, including a 10 day reclusion. I have seen the natural wonders of the world from the blue volcanic flame to endangered animal species. I went to university here, worked and volunteered, learned the local language and customs. From bottom to top, from uninhabited islands to overpopulated megacities, from tribes to intelligentsia, from one nationality to another – believe me, I have something to show you. Are you ready to experience the real Indonesia with Gila travels?
