My name is Sandra, I'm from Paris and now live in the french Alps. I spent nearly 10 years being bored working for large international companies, but made the best move by leaving everything behind so I can now spend most of my time in the outdoors. I planned for an AT thru-hike at the same time COVID made us stay home so instead I hiked closer to home, in the Alps, the Vosges and into the Carpathians on the Slovak and Polish border. My best hiking memory is still in Tanzania where I reached the summit of Kilimanjaro. Next adventure : Hiking in the wild along the Vjosa River in Greece and Albania.
