20 Feb Paragliding is boring, dangerous and expensive
My friend and much valued colleague Bryn always tells me to blog about non-work related stuff. Today is Saturday. I love Saturdays. It’s the one day of the week when I try to do absolutely nothing work related. Today I went flying.
So why the blog title? A long time ago I worked with the guys at Wings and Waves in New Zealand. We had this printed on our t-shirts. Most of the time not. But some of the time yes. You don’t always get to the hill and find it flyable. You can spend a lot of time and effort getting to that point. Sometimes things can and do go wrong.
If I haven’t put you off go check out Jérôme Maupoint’s photos and be inspired further. If you want to learn to do something boring, dangerous and expensive the British Hang Gliding and Paragliding Association can help point you in the right direction. It’s worth it.
