Wednesday around the world - High in the Sky

Last Summer I was invited by a friend and his paragliding club to take part in a photo shoot at our local surf beach. I wasn't aware there was a trek at this particular location so it was quite a surprise when I reached the top after about 10 mins. It was a scorching hot day, I had loads of sunblock on and there were quite a few people up there in the air floating about - it's very high, not my sort of adrenaline rush I'm afraid. I'm the sort of person who likes my feet on the ground taking photos with my camera - believe me I didn't go anywhere near the edge of the cliff...

That's my Wednesday around the world for this week, to take part you can go to Betty's Blog :-)

    1. thank you - it's 5 mins from where I live :-)

  2. That is fun, wish, I could fly...

  3. I love that pop of red against the blue of the sky. There's a bluff here where we get to see plenty of paragliders take off. Yeah, I'd rather be a spectator, too.

  4. Next weekend my sweetheart and I are going to visit friends in tne southeast of Germany, but the weekend thereafter we may travel to the beaches in front of your door... :-)
    What do you think? Who long does it take to travel from Germany to NZ???? And will we be back in time on Sunday evening????
    I have to rethink my travel plans...

  5. I would love to try that. That IS my kind of fun :)

  6. That looks like something my daughter would love but for me, well I like to keep my feet firmly on the ground


  7. Thanks for joining the party this week! Like you, I prefer to keep my feet on the ground but admire those who are brave enough to do this sort of thing.
