And when I’m not translating…

When I am not busy translating I can usually be found in a glider – either as an instructor and cross-country coach at my gliding club or competing as a member of the British Gliding Team – most recently at the Women’s World Gliding Championship at Husbands Bosworth, UK, where I won the Silver Medal!
