Sunset paragliding over The Barefoot Dunes, Cerro Oyarvide range, Iquique, The Atacama Desert, ChileDreams do come true. I dreamed about flying above The Barefoot Dunes since the moment I discovered them. It seamed virtually impossible because they are too high above the permanent inversion layer, too deep into the desert from the coast, and too remote. Then this perfect day happens with all ingredients just right, like never before. And I am just there, right at that time, right at that moment. And the moment was at the sunset. And yes, I was screaming from joy and happiness. Did the universe help me?

Bliss

This place is like a box of chocolates. Every time I go there I get something new, something great. This time after a pioneering XC flight toward Camarones we flew above the clouds for over two hours. Then the glide kilometers into the sea and landing close to the crashing waves of Pacific way after the sunset with landing zone lighted up by a huge bonfire. Then a BBQ on a deserted beach. Then sleeping under starry southern skies looking for the southern cross. All of this laughing with friends and loved ones. Can it get any better? Another day to remember. Another day in the life of the happiest guy on Earth.
