Mélina

Mélina joined our gang this summer, and we're all delighted!

She's from the Vendée on the west coast of France, and her eyes are as blue as the ocean that laps its shores. In fact her kind and mischievous eyes are the first thing you notice about her, and you soon realise that despite her gentle and even quite discrete nature lies a boundless source of energy!

She's hardly likely to contradict us either, as she's been dancing and running since she was a child. In fact you may even catch a glimpse of her bounding along the banks of the Saône between Quai des Célestins and Île Barbe if you get up early enough.
And don't think that because Mélina is into fitness, she lets her mind lie fallow! On the contrary. Not only is she curious, she also has the soul of an artist and loves music (as much as she loves dancing in fact, which says it all!), especially Queen (she's a big fan of the great Freddie Mercury), and a film buff to boot, which is just as well when you live in Lyon!

Another quality of hers that is highly appreciated by the Monweekendalyon team is that she's a foodie: a characteristic that made her instantly lovable!

And believe us, she certainly is lovable!
