A couple of weeks ago I went paragliding. It was super. Time and money allow, I hope to do a paragliding course in August so that I can do it by myself and not have to do tandem flights. My pilot must have thought my quietness reflects fear, so he continuously asked me if I'm okay. I guess he is used to people shouting. His concern turned out to be somewhat of a distraction to my enjoyment. What I enjoyed about it was the absolute serenity of being so high above the earth, "Ringed with the azure world", all quiet and peaceful, the trees a green kaleidoscope carpeted hundreds of feet below me. It was awesome and I definitely want to do it again. Some people in the group I went with felt sick, so unless you suffer from motion sickness, I highly recommend paragliding.
