Instagram post 2248169581935698918_7030070967 #tbt to that time I tried to participate in a regio task of the Swiss league (and very miserably failed). 😅
A couple of years ago, we went to Verbier on the first regio task of the season, and met with a few pilots for a flight around the valley. The sun was shining, skiers were skying, paragliders were zeroting. 👌🏔
Leaving the sky lift, we had to walk down a bit on the slopes to reach the take off. At first, there was no wind and everybody took off (I was taking pictures instead of hurrying up). But when I tried to follow, the wind had started to come from the lee. I ran down that damn slope way too many times, in knee deep snow, carrying 4kg of lead (because why take water when you can carry heavy, unpractical metal plates, right? 🤦‍♀️), falling nose first and cursing the paragliders who were still zeroting, the skyiers who kept on skying and the sun who dared to keep shining! 😝 I tried so hard that, in the end, I was so exhausted I could not even manage to walk back up to the sky lift and resolved to half slip, half roll down, with my backpack and my 4kg of lead all the way to Verbier (the village pictured here)! Oh well... 🤷‍♀️
This year, I will try and do better. I registered for a few events and hope I will learn from sharing the sky with other pilots. And I am not placing the bar very high for myself; as long as I take off, I will do better than I did that time above Verbier! 🤓 🧘‍♀️

Instagram post 2245944875086077031_7030070967 Can you spot the spots? 🦠📷🦠
I really need to get a self shutting lens thing (or whatever they are called). For the past few months, I have been manually photoshopping specks of dust out of my photos and it has been driving me insane! 
We lost our camera’s case and lens cap somewhere over the Himalayas and since then I am marvelling at how something this small can annoy the crap out of me! 😛🤬 In my book, the size-nuisance ratio of these tiny pieces of nothing comes only second to that nasty flu virus that gave me pneumonia a few years ago. 🦠

Instagram post 2240581274074750117_7030070967 How do you plan your weekend? We typically make a different, but very firm plan every day of the week. The evening before, or when we wake up on the day, we double-check the forecast and decide what to do. 
And then: we end up going somewhere else! 😂✌️

Instagram post 2240293704061187498_7030070967 I had to squint to see where I was heading today! The air was thick in the inversion layer. I peeked over it when I reached cloud base over Cavallaria, and I could not see the ground below the mountain! Under me was an ocean of white, framed only by the Alps behind me. It was beatiful, but unsettling: kind of like when you lose the ground under your feet when swimming in the sea. ☁️🐟☁️

Instagram post 2235819626554383869_7030070967 So I finally took the time to write a bit about my trip to South Africa and sort through pictures. (Link in my bio)
My expectations going there were quite optimistic, and it took a while adusting to the reality. I didn’t fly as far or as long as I wished. And as much as I try to reason with my petty self, I can’t help but feel a teeny tiny bit bitter.
On the one hand I regret not pushing myself harder on the flyable days, but I very well know that I made each decision to land because I felt very far out of my comfort zone and these were the right decisions. Then I curse myself for bombing out on a couple of occasions, but frankly, I did try to find/stay in thermals and I failed; it’s not like I could have willed myself up and away from the ground. I just need to work harder and fly more hours to improve; there isn’t much to regret here.
Finally, it was hard fitting into a group, though I knew that going in. I more or less did my own thing most of the time in the middle of the pack, but I did not manage to really make up my mind and find my place when we were flying together: I wasn’t always waiting for those behind me and I did not do my best to keep up with those in front, though I had planned on doing so. One more thing I need to work on! 
I do usually put a more positive spin on the story and I do feel very fortunate to have had this great experience, but sometimes, I just need a good old rant to move on. 
Ok, rant over! 😄 And I look forward to sharing many pretty pictures of the beautiful places I was lucky to visit this Winter! 😄

Instagram post 2229398104960878490_7030070967 So today I went on a hike & hike adventure. It is an activity that ressembles hike & fly, but which only a select type of pilot can achieve. The training required is similar, and it takes about the same energy and motivation.
The key difference resides in the choice of gear. 
Namely, if you forget your freaking harness, you will hike back down. 👍👸
There is a saying in French that I rely heavily on, throughout my life: “quand on a pas de tête, on a des jambes”. Well, pretty much every day is leg day for me, but this one takes the cake!

Instagram post 2213060600498231396_7030070967 Well, I left this crazy colorful place and am now back under the heavy stratus of Geneva 😭. Thankfully, I did play a bit with my camera during my trip to Summer and got a few good memories out of it! 🙌🏞
This beautiful pool (created by a dam) was just above our house. And I sat still on its shore a couple of times in hopes I would catch interesting animals on camera. I was even there at 6, in my pajamas on our last day, but all I saw were a couple of noisy ducks swimming and flying around the pool (and I am pretty sure the entire Western Cape heard them, they weren’t particularilly hard to spot). Oh well! 😜🤷‍♀️

I didn’t fly that far, but I felt at ease during the entire flight! 🧘‍♀️ No crazy wind to break thermals into a million pieces, no crazy wind to flee away from as fast as I can, no crazy wind blowing me to and fro above the field I want to land in. Life is better when the wind is acting reasonable! 🪂🌬

Instagram post 2206178569776579266_7030070967 I bombed out today. 🤷‍♀️ Though I am feeling a bit frustrated about it now, I just couldn’t get really excited during the flight. The forecast announced quite a lot of wind, and that kind of put a lid on my willingness to fight to stay up. My mind was not completely in it and I lost the battle to stay airborne. 🪂
Oh, and I flew a grand total of 3km in 1 hour! 🤘😄

Easy: you fly over them, yelling “do you plan on flying today or what?!”
This guy came from above us this morning and got everyone off the launch in less time than it takes to say “Nananananère” 🤣👋

Instagram post 2204629693403947186_7030070967 Tricky conditions up there allow for a good meal and a solid nap down here. Vacations can be pretty hard, so I’m not complaining about the down time! 😉
I bombed out on the second flying day of my stay in South Africa. 🤷‍♀️ We left home with a 100k flight plan. 😎 I took it down a notch when I was swept by a strong lee wind on launch. 😖 Once in the air, I settled for a dart flight straight to Porterville. (maybe about 10k away?) 😫 Eventually, I did not even manage to get that far and chose a field with a tree to fold my wing in the shade. 😂 Goals change, I should get used to it!

Instagram post 2203297702251175904_7030070967 Today was a good first day! We flew in the flat lands. Thermals were quite strong and I didn’t feel much like letting go of my breaks to take photos. But I flew my biggest FAI yet, and took the best the sky had to offer today, so even if I don’t have much to show for it, today was a great day! .

Instagram post 2202562330231632575_7030070967 Welcome to South Africa! I didn’t fly today, the non-existing take off kinda messed up my mojo. And I love my Crocs, but I was not prepared to hike in them, should I have bombed out far away from a road. There is a saying in French that has unfortunately become my motto: « quand on a pas de tête, on a des jambes », i.e. if you don’t have a head, you better have legs. But what the heck do you do if you forgot your shoes? 🤷‍♀️

Instagram post 2191597868192384524_7030070967 Do you ever forget stuff when you step out of the house? 🤔 
Forgetting things is kind of part of who I am, I have always been a bit of a scatterbrain. 🤷‍♀️ So, more often than not, I reach launch only to find that I forgot part of my gear! Nothing to fret over if it is only a hat, socks or extra snacks. I won’t freak out either if I am not launching for a long XC flight and I forgot my shoes, my flight instruments, or my pants (true stories, though I felt more naked without my vario than when freezing my butt off in a miniskirt). Heck, I even forgot my actual glider one evening (and hitchhiked my way down with my empty backpack 💪😅). But after leaving essentials at the hotel two freaking days in a row on my last XC trip, I knew I had to turn my life around! (I had no jacket on the first day, no peeing system on the second). So I made... a LIST! There are 30 items total and guess what: over the span of my short pilot life, I have forgotten each of them at least once (most many, many times)! And it only now occured to me to make a *list*! 😂👍

Instagram post 2190976506214036910_7030070967 Between the weather being really petty on the weekends, the sun setting at about 1:30 PM (or so it feels like) and a general lack of motivation to get my lazy butt off my cosy couch, I am not getting a whole lot of flying done these days. 🌨🤷‍♀️ I have basically been cramming a whole year’s worth of couch potatoe-ing into the month of November. 😎
It’s all about balance, right? ⚖️🤷‍♀️

Instagram post 2187893488989514279_7030070967 Flashback to that time I signed up for a local competiotion to mix things up a bit. The air was super stable, and my vario forgot all the waypoints when I turned it on on launch. I sent the ok message to the task organizer hiked down with a couple of friends and then launched into the green! I just couldn’t cope with the stress of handling instruments, listening to everyone stressing out about the conditions and the steep slope I was supposed tu run on while not holding anyone else back for take off 🤷‍♀️ Next year, I will try to work on being in the right state of mind and accepting the stress and surprises before a flight! 💪

Instagram post 2187392377967022699_7030070967 Currently in Spain and grounded, so this feels like a good time for a throw back to the last time I was grounded in Spain (for completely different reasons 🙃), but pretending I could fly. 😆🐥

Instagram post 2185798640342043280_7030070967 Hike & fly season is upon us! ⛄️🥾
I used to hike quite a bit. And climb (although badly). And swim regularily. I have never been a sports junkie, but I was putting some half hearted efforts into various physical activities. All of that has now gone through the window, and I only willingly move my butt if there is a chance I could be rewarded with a flight at the end! I also take up running about four times a year (and never stick to it), but even then, most of my motivation lays in knowing it will help me become more endurant in flight and lighter footed on those autumn hike & fly outings! 🤷‍♀️😇

Instagram post 2181580699794919140_7030070967 At the end of my very first XC flight a few years ago, I landed on the bank of the Rhône pictured here. I had decided to fly as far as I could and it was an exhilarating feeling to launch without knowing where I would land (I mean, you never really know whether you will land at the LZ, but that time, I just didn’t know where I would end up at all). A few years later, whenever I get ready on a take off to fly “as far as I can” the excitement is still the same! 🐥

Instagram post 2180190438132891232_7030070967 I loved hiking through the forest in Himachal Pradesh. 🌲🌲🌲
Underneath the trees, I found familiar smells and colors and I felt at home. And whenever I got a peak out of the forest, it was like peeping through an open window on another world! Behind the first range of mountains towered 6000 meters high giants; away from the protecting shade of the pine trees, lizards and snakes were working on their tan amongst colorful rocks; and through the leaves and creepers, I caught glimpses of hundreds of colorful gliders, zooming over the jungle. 🏔🦎🎈 I totally felt like I was Mowgli, visiting Narnia! 🚪

Instagram post 2179029427757529210_7030070967 Pop quiz: should you land before or after you start hearing thunder coming from advancing storms? 🤨 
If you ask this guy, there are several correct answers! 🙈⛈

Instagram post 2177896805992228621_7030070967 Flying logistics used to be easier during the good flying season than during Winter: sunny days meant less clothes to put on, no worrying about having to dry drenched equipment, and easy car rides (no snow)! Easy, peasy! ✌️😄
Now that I am getting the hang of cross country flying, Hammertags and good forecasts mean figuring out how to dress for all seasons in one day (from super hot down in the valley, to freezing cold when flying high), still drying drenched equipment (guys have it easier than I do in that department 😅), and crazy retrieve parties! 🚗⛰
📸: flashback to earlier this year, about to cross over Lake Annecy.
