Paragliding at Bir Billing – 3

Paragliding at Bir Billing – 3


Had a flight on the 22nd and the 23rd – a little bit of thermalling over the house thermal and then heading out to the landing field. I’m pleased with my progress but have a million questions in my head while airborne that somehow seem insignificant once I’ve landed. Met Steve in the evening and he offered to take me tandem the next day – sounds like a plan – I’m excited and eager.

Peace Bliss & Happy Landings
