#Yolo! Flying Like a Bird!

Well, everybody have a kind of wish list/bucket list I suppose? A thing what was high ranked on my ‘list’ was paragliding. And yesterday, finally made it!!!!!!!!! image

Nervous? Not really. Excited? Yes!!! I had the full trust in my  experienced instructor/pilot (tandem flight,of course:) ). He explained me several times all the things what I had to do before the take off, very strict, but it’s all about safety. We flew criss cross like a bird above the soca river and between the hills and mountains, meanwhile the instructor telled me about the mountains, the height (1300m) and surroundings. Every few minutes he asked me that I am ok:), yes! I had a blast!

Really pity that I don’t have a GoPro or special camera to film/photograph the scenery, and playing with my iPhone in the air wasn’t an option too:). Not state of the art pictures in this blogpost but this amazing experience I really wanted to share with you, my loyal followers:)! Is on your bucket list too? Just take the opportunity when possible!

As I am staying in Kobarid (Slovenia), I booked this tandem flight by X Point.

Found on YouTube a nice video, similar flight with same pilot(Dejan).
