My Story

Where It All Began

This is my story about getting to know and falling in love with the outdoors.

I did not grow up skiing or camping or adventuring in the mountains. My life took an unexpected turn when I met a Canadian guy in a bar in Shanghai and eventually left my Parisian dream for Switzerland. Since I haven’t looked back. I learned to ski, to set up a tent and to read contour lines on a map and I spent the last five years roaming the Swiss outdoors.

The Covid pandemic was another disruptive event on a life that seemed to be mapped out. It finally prompted me to leave my corporate life at the beginning of 2022 and to follow a dream that had been growing in the back of my mind: biking and running around France, my home country.

At the risk of sounding cliché, I strongly believe you find growth at the end of your comfort zone.

What you’ll find me doing outside

Skiing, running, hiking or riding my bike. If possible uphill.
Add in a bit of yoga, for good measure. And a tent, or the back of a van.

I only learned to skis in my mid twenties, but in the winter, you’ll find me on the touring or cross-country skis. Nothing makes my heart soar like the sight of a white alpine scenery. I’ve a lot of incredible memories exploring the Swiss Alps that I’m lucky to share with my boyfriend, who introduced me to the sports.

I like to say that I accidentally discovered cycling when signing up for a triathlon. I’m now hooked to the feeling of freedom that a bike procures and I like to jungle between road cycling, touring or mountain biking.

Running is my first love and I now seek the sensation of flow that the trails can procure. For my first race, I signed up for a “maratrail” format: I ran 46km on trails through the night (and the snow) and I really loved it!



I love to share my adventures in stories, pictures and hand drawn maps.
I’m fascinated by the power of storytelling and I hope to show that adventure is just around the corner and to encourage everybody to get out there.
