Planète.D

(français plus bas)

“My name is Nathalie. I get on my skis in Ivalo, Finland. I load up my sled and I welcome, with a grimacing pleasure, on my shoulders and the small of my back, its 50 pounds of gear. All my life fits in there, and will, for the two and half months to come. I put in that too, I know, my doubts and hopes. I hope not to loose them on the way, my hopes, but maybe the way shall make them real. Make me real. This adventure is also about loneliness, anxiety and euphoria, details of a nature buried under snow, lethargy, a place where the slightest jolt feels like an effervescence. I wish to demystify the idea that nature is there only hostile. I’m probably also willing to show that with the suitable preparation, many projects are feasible, which seem downright inaccessible. As a nobody I want to reach the North Cape and then ski down along the Scandinavian spine, in full autonomy, and before the spring melts out. ”

« Je m’appelle Nathalie.
Je chausse mes skis à Ivalo, en Finlande.
J’arnache ma pulka et j’accueille, avec une volupté grimaçante, sur mes épaules et au creux de mes reins, ses 50 kilos de chargement.
Toute ma vie tient là-dedans pour les deux mois et demi à venir. J’y mets aussi, je le sais bien, mes doutes et mes espoirs.
Je n’espère pas les semer en route, peut-être juste que le chemin les bonifiera. Ou me bonifiera.
Cette aventure, c’est aussi la solitude, les angoisses et les euphories, les détails d’une nature enfouie sous la neige, en léthargie, où le moindre sursaut s’apparente à une effervescence.
J’espère démystifier l’idée que cette nature n’est qu’hostile.
Je veux sans doute aussi montrer qu’avec la préparation idoine, beaucoup de projets sont réalisables, qui paraissent inaccessibles.
Que l’anonyme que je suis peut atteindre le Cap Nord, puis redescendre en partie le long de la colonne vertébrale scandinave, en autonomie, avant le printemps et la fonte. »

Here's home to modern, 33% crazy 33% well-written and documented, 33% poetic self-made adventure films. Here's home to the travelling family Planète.D and home-made independent adventure/travel films by Damien Artero :-)

Contemporary "adventurers" Delphine & Damien, a young, sensitive and dynamic couple from France, first set out on a long cycling journey, around the world, which lasted 2.5 years, and through which their tandem called Buzzz rode across 22 countries. They now live for (and from) their travels, along with their daughters Lirio and Luce.

They make adventure films and books, give screenings and lectures to share the happiness they get from their travels. Their films and writings are always funny to watch and dynamic, their tales lighthearted and documented.
