Hi, I’m Carmel, 25 years old. I was born and raised in Switzerland in a beautiful village in the Alps (French speaking side). Swiss father, English mother, I’m lucky to have a double nationality.
Since my childhood, I’ve been fortunate to travel to a lot of different countries. From the African savannah to the volcanos of New Zealand, Florida in the United States of America, most of western Europe’s big cities. I’m missing Asia but it’s on my list 😉
I’m a ski fanatic ! The expression : “Natural born skier” accurately describes me 😉 I live 2 minutes away from the cable car and in winter I go skiing 2 to 3 times per week. I’m planning to go skiing in Chile and Argentina. I’m also a big fan of flying, but in a special way. I’m lucky to have stepped into the hot air balloon world ! When you get to know the balloonists it’s like being part of a big family, you make friends all over the planet ! Places i’ve flown : Château-d’Oex (CH), Bristol (UK), Forcalquier (FR) and Germany. One of my projects in life is to obtain my pilot license.
I love being outside and breathe the fresh air of the mountains. I take things easily (why make things complicated ?!) I consider myself to be spontaneous, curious, sensible and maybe a little mysterious.
This blog is mainly to keep contact with my family, friends back home and to share my adventures and experiences. I hope you will enjoy reading my posts !
