// the closest I'll ever get to flying

austria, october 2005
paragliding over St Tyrol, Austria. October 2005

Paragliding was the most amazing experience, even tandem. Strapped with a parachute & emergency parachute, bags that weigh nearly as much as me. Running as fast as you can off a hill 1700m above ground until there's nothing beneath your feet, just pure, blue sky. Floating floating floating this is the closest thing to flying I'll ever be and doing spins in the air with the parachute handles in my hands. For a little while, I really had wings.
