Katrine and I took turns at tandem flights (i.e. with an instructor) today. Gliding over the Alps was magnificent. My first experience with paragliding, I was surprised by how comfortable it was, and how "in the air" you feel. You can easily forget there's a chute above you, esp. when you're not the one piloting. What a difference with the Cessna I usually fly (of course, I do like my engine :-)
Definitely something I could do more of!
