Last Mother's Day, my lovely daughter and husband clubbed together to get me a paragliding taster session in the Sussex Downs. My friend's son and husband did the same. So last Sunday us 'mad-for-it' girls enjoyed a 'happy to be alive' kind of day flying around in the English countryside.
If you've a mind to try it, go for it! To get going there's a lot to remember (like when you first learn to drive), but the soaring feeling is bliss. Just as well, because walking back up the hill, again and again is pants!
I dunno what my husband is laughing at, I think I look totes graceful! :)
