AMAZING, AMAZING, AMAZING and completely terrifying!! Thankfully I survived paragliding with one tiny injury - bit of toe nail ripped off - ouch! It was so much fun and totally exhilarating once we actually got up into the sky (few take off problems due to the wind). We went SOOOO high and then span around so fast that my stomach dropped out of the sky and I couldn´t stop laughing - it was great and I really loved it until we had to land. My guy was really nice, although I was a little concerned when he started taking mobile phone calls mid air!! The views were amazing, we could see mountains and canyons...
When we finally landed (took 3 or 4 attempts) I saw the people that I met yesterday in Barichara. They STILL hadn´t left for their paragliding trip (even though they got there before me) and when I asked why, was told that it was too windy and dangerous, RIGHT....that will account for the ripped off toe nail and crazy take off that we experienced, followed by the guy screaming sit back, sit back - really thought I was going to die...
The ride there and back was interesting - motorbike on the hairy roads. We did lots of overtaking and managed to miss most of the pot holes. On the way back I was much more relaxed - I think I was too tired to be scared any more! It was so much fun with the warm wind rushing past...one of my best days.
Now off on a 12 hour overnight bus trip to the coast...think I will sleep no matter what after today!
