Instagram post 2236601054934109378_7030070967 Fly into the week like a glider taking off in the lee! Mondays are rough. Tuesdays are a little bit less shaky. Slowly make your way through the week, putting distance between you and the mountain of troubles. Before you know it, Friday is here and you are soaring above it all! Happy Tuesday everyone! .

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 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! 😜🤷‍♀️

Instagram post 2209006968882855600_7030070967 Finally a day I feel really good about! 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! 🤘😄

Instagram post 2205462390607034050_7030070967 How do you get a bunch of pilots to jump into their harnesses and take off in an inversion layer? 🪂
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 2204035642728140571_7030070967 We didn’t fly today, it was way to windy! 🌬We went all the way up to the take off only to look at disapointed comp pilots launch into a bumpy, sketchy sky (the pre PWC task was cancelled). But I found a waterfall at the foot of the mountain and lived my best shower gel commercial fantasy, so I am calling the day a win! 🌺💁‍♀️🌺

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 1995659429443048307_7030070967 Do you ever wonder where the dividing line between knowing something will happen and provoquing the thing you think will happen actually lies? Like, on that day, did I actually KNOW I was going to bomb out right in front of the launch and then fly by myself, or did I bomb out right in front of the launch and then fly by myself BECAUSE I thought I would? 
I am a firm believer that intention is key, and if you visualize a situation, good or bad, you can will it into reality. It is kind of like the way you go where you look: ahead on the road when you drive, or right into the only tree in the field you land in. If you look at something, you will naturally go to it. 
As much as I like taking pictures of people taking off, I often find that I fly better if I don't. If I am going through my flight plan/take off/weather conditions of the day on launch and don't get distracted by clicking around with my camera, chances are I will clock in a better flight. I kind of knew this was not going to be my only take off, so the pressure to stay focused was off. In any case, I got cool pictures before my first flight on that day, and did an excellent second flight later on; like I knew I would. 🌤 .

Instagram post 1989721104513335205_7030070967 Pic taken on Christmas day by the hubby on a way too short flight. 🎅 We had decided to first follow the ridge towards the North, and then cut through the flatlands, as a convection would form above us and carry us effortlessly to the mountains on the other side. For once I was not 5 miles behind the group and when we saw the first cumulus humilis above the endless fields we yelled at each other that we should go for it (because, why use the radios strapped to your chests when you can yell in the sky like crazy people?) It was a little bit to early for the path to be followed effortlessly; I soon realized I had never yet flown in the flats with a HEADwind and had NO IDEA what I was doing. I learned a few lessons before I bombed out: - actually step on that speedbar; merely pretending afterwards that you did will not help; 🤷‍♀️
- don't make a bee line for the next cloud you see without thinking about where to approach it from first: you will be in the the lee of the thermal and end up 20 feet away from the ground in a single glide; 🐝
- COMMIT to your line; changing your mind 360 times in 10 minutes might be forgiven in the mountains, but here it will be your demise; ☝️
- birds are jerks, don't trust them blindly.🐥

Instagram post 1986877446814581497_7030070967 While the short flight from Kleinmond was beautiful, I had to really fight my way back into positive thinking after the worst take off I had in a very long time. 😨 When I fly, I constantly fight to stay (or come back) in the moment, and not let my emotions be dictated by either things I saw or did in the past or stuff I anticipate in the future. Easier said than done 😅🌤 .

Here, you can see that every inch of flat land is used to grow something , but the mountains are left completely untouched. No high power electrical lines, no mountain bike trail, no ski resort (obviously). It's all about balance. I'm a libra, I dig balance. ⚖️😆

Instagram post 1984679832459354850_7030070967 Still not sure how I feel about game reserves. On the one hand, can we really continue to destroy ecosystems and then park a few chosen animals in controlled enclosures ? I am very much not a conservationist, and do not believe in using animals for our entertainment. But if parks also welcome rescued animals and offer them a (somewhat) comfortable retirement, then why not... These two had it easy anyway, and it was nice to know they were well taken care of. A car followed them 24/7 to protect them from poachers and offer them fruit and veggies snacks every couple of hours! 🌤

Instagram post 1980468317736734072_7030070967 Paragliding is fun, you should try it if you aren't a pilot already! 🤓 The scariest part is usually the wait before your fight, and you will most likely take away something you will remember and enjoy for a long time! And if you are a control freak or aren't a fan of being strapped to someone you don't know, sign up for a class! It is extremely empowering to fling oneself off a cliff and manage to get safely back on the ground by one's own means! 😄🌤

Instagram post 1977488836460684998_7030070967 Flying low and not finding a good lift keeps you on your toes; but flying low while all the other pilots are circling above you lights a fire under your ass! Your position in the sky is not an absolute concept, it is always relative. It can be put in relation to the ground, to the terrain, the cliffs, the clouds, and - if you are not on your own - the other crazy guys flying with a piece of cloth above their heads. But be careful about trying to catch up; would you feel the same sense of urgency if you were by yourself? Would you hurry up this much if others were behind or below you? Would you go this way if others did not chance it? Sometimes the key is just to tune out the other gliders and just do you. 📸 : @patricechartmann

Instagram post 1975319612115947717_7030070967 I am pretty sure I already said this here, but - at the risk of sounding like a broken record - I LOVE rainbows! They are without a doubt my favorite visual effect to encounter outside, and always feel magical! I love that they aren't just objectively there (like rain, or clouds, or lightnings); they are here because YOU see them. They help you realize you are living here and now, and always right in the very middle of the prettiest colors! 🌤

Instagram post 1973838272410699510_7030070967 I love this little glider so much! 💖 Before every switch up, I am always convinced I have the best glider I will ever have and am reluctant to say goodbye. 😢 But something tells me this one is quite special! 🌤
