Fanny is a keen traveller and sportswoman. She particularly enjoys taking the wine route to admire the scenery and make the most of the mountains on her snowboard. I was born in Alsace. I feel strongly attached to this region. Its beauty has always fascinated me, which is one of the reasons I chose this occupation. I love seeing the wonderful panoramic views from the mountains, vineyards and villages. I’m a sporty person and like letting off steam with a game of tennis, unwinding at a good basketball match, or taking a breath of fresh air on my snowboard.See more topics writen by Fanny
