PostHeaderIcon Photos: Paragliding, October 2007

Jan took me paragliding today, he was doing his tandem training and needed some cargo so I volunteered. I had this idea that it would be a great adventure filled day but Jan failed to warn me of the reality. We spent all day sat on the side of a cold, windy, wet hill first waiting for the dense fog to clear and then waiting for the high winds to drop. We did eventually get a flight in at about 4PM but Jan aggravated a knee injury and so we couldn't do any more after that. Anyway, it was well worth the long wait - it was ace!

Here's some pictures I took, not of Jan and I but of the others on the hillside. I've also added some photo's I took of Jan paragliding off Pen-Y-Fan some time ago.

The view must have been spectacular. Although I probably would have thrown up a bit from the height.

"Jan failed to warn me of the reality" - what a surprise! That's not like Jan! :-) I just told him no from the outset to avoid just such a situation.

It was unfortunate.. the forecast was very good, but it turned out to be just that little bit too windy.. So we had a long wait.

Gary, you were suprisingly patient.. not something I've ever said about you before.. You've changed..

You were also a good passenger.. didn't panick or blub.

We'll do it again, and hopefully the weather will be kinder to us.
