This morning I set my alarm at 6 o’clock but I couldn’t get up on time. I suppose to leave at 6.30h, so I would’ve some spare time for my trip to Schiphol airport, but unfortunately I slept late. I left at 7 o’clock and arrived one hour later at Schiphol.

Fortunately I didn’t have any delay. At the airport I ran into team member Nikki, she was there on time. Team member Elko arrived soon and we’re complete. Checking in went well. This dude at the metal detector checked up on me. I had to open up my bags, but there was nothing dangerous inside my bag. He was just checking out my gadgets, I think he’s jealous at my camera!

The flight to Zurich was nice. I received swiss chocolate during the flight.

It was so delicious, I craved for more. I managed to score some more chocolates with my pure awesomeness at the end of the flight.

We could spend 1 hour at the airport. While Nikki and Elko were busy with their notebooks, I explored the airport. It was quite fun because I could try some fine chocolate sweets. I enjoyed it a lot.

So if you ever have time left at Zurich airport, I suggest you to walk around and you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about.

At Zurich, Mathilde and her mom from Sweden joined us. They booked the same flight to Lyon.

When we arrived at Lyon, it was up to fix a rental car.

I booked a small car before, however it was meant for 3 persons. We were with the 5 of us and luckily they had a bigger car available on their parking lot.

We fit well in the car, including our luggage. It took us 2 hours to get to Valence. We managed to get on time at the climbing gym for the registration without navigation.

First we parked our car in the same street of the hotel and checked in. It’s a ** hotel and it’s about 15 minutes by foot to the climbing gym.

To be honest, I’ve seen better hotels in my life. Anyway, I’ll just stay here for a few days!

Next we went downtown to grab a bite. It was already 6.30 P.M. Most of the restaurants open from 7 P.M. We had to hurry because we wanted to be on time for the technical meeting from 7.30 P.M. We ended up in an average restaurant where we got served pretty fast. I ordered entrecote nature avec pomme et salad. Too bad I didn’t have ketchup with my fries. The meat was nice though.

I was too hungry so it was okay I suppose. Nikki picked lasagna and Elko had pizza.

We were on time at the technical meeting. There’s nothing special according the officials.

Nikki will start 7th in her first route and 23rd in her second route. Elko will start 6th in his first route and 28th in his second route. I’ll start 38th in my first route and 16th in my second route.

The programme remains the same. After this meeting we had some desserts to end our long journey. We visited this restaurant near our hotel.

It was super delicious. We’ll definitely return to his restaurant for a meal. After our dessert we went back to our hotel.

That’s it for now. I’m tired and I’m going to sleep because I have to wake up early. Goodnight to everyone and greetings from Valence, France!
