Fly There

Fly There - Paragliding over Gruppo di Fanis range, The Dolomites, South Tyrol, Italy

Everybody at the takeoff was telling me to fly there, to fly there if I have a chance, wherever I fly today remember to fly there, and fly there when the sun is setting, just go there. I must admit it was not easy. It started with a two hours hike to the takeoff. A breakfast of cheese and schinkenspeck. Switchy winds during the launch. Then seven hour XC flight along spines of the South Tyrol Alps and then the sun started to set.

Every pilot has flights he always remembers: the first time your feet leave the ground, your first thermal flight when you get above a takeoff, the first long cross country… and then there is the first time the wingtip of your glider touches the vertical limestone walls of the Dolomites.
