Paragliding Over Saleve Mountain

I bumped into something out of the realm of things I normally do for enjoyment and decided to go for it. Painting, crafts, anything creative is more in line with my taste but since I am all about learning, experiencing, I went for it.

On our way to the mountain, I noticed that some of the passengers were carrying huge backpacks until it became apparent to me who they were, parapenters, human-carrying aircraft or paragliders as they are also called, on their way to jump off the mountain, some for the very first time. Pardon me but I smell fear. They don’t use engines but can fly for long periods of time and the loads on their backs, equipments. So, I followed them out of curiosity. I saw them a couple of times over the mountain while driving but had to see them in action and I am glad I did because I got my money’s worth. Oh yeah adrenaline on high and flying they did. Who needs an airplane?

There is something mystical about floating up in the air… wait a minute, better don’t get carried away. I take the plane and that’s as far as I go.

Eat your heart out birdy, I can do it too and on a wingsuit. Mommy, can you see me? I am  having fun. 3, 2, 1… yes, I am ready. I am flying mommy… yeeehhhh!

Who said diving was for humans only? I don’t know about you but I am certainly having a beautiful Sunday morning, and this just definitely my day. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did. LOVE!

Throwback Friday Video

I was out and about with a few friends and we decided to stop by our local Johnny Rockets. Mind you I never been to one, so this came as a surprise to me. It was an an exciting experience. I loved it. I wonder what happened to the kids on the video. Wondering if they are still with the company. No, I have not return because I am not of a fast food groupie.
