Camille creator of urban trails
Camille Martin is a former high school teacher, a dedicated aïkido practitioner,a yoga enthusiast and a passionate hiker, in both urban and rural environments alike. A curious and open spirit, strongly influnced by her multicultural background (of Kenyan, French and Indian descent) and by her many travels around the globe, Camille is by nature someone who happily crosses frontiers or enjoys switching from one culture to another.
Camille finds the excitement of travel in trying out new food, hearing different languages, experienceing the weather (wathever it may be) and trying to follow the local flow. In 2014 she starts Walk In, the Paris urban hiking group, help Parisians rediscover the joys of exploring their city like exploring a foreign place, and give visitor a unique and singular to Paris. She brings hikers to experience in the city that sense of discovery and adventure found when walking in remote paces, and she loves sharing her reading of Paris.
More than 20 years a Parisian, she feels the city has more to offer than what postcards can show. Paris and each of its neighbourhoods have many facets, in turn trendy, annoying, vibrant, dense, quiet, charming and overall.... breathtaking.
