Up, up and away


You ever have those awesome moments when you see something out the window and you have your camera just there so you're able to get a quick shot? It's not often that happens to me but this did. We spotted this person paragliding above one of the hotels in Taupo. Being scared of heights you'd never get me up that high. How about you, would you do it?

Linking up with Weekend Reflections and The Weekend Roundup.

Good.

F used to do it - when she lived in NZ - but then she doesn't appear to be scared of heights.

I don't think I would.

We see paragliders up in the hills when we venture out to the city. I always wonder whether they land exactly where they want to and what happens if they don't.
Not something I'd ever do, shudder, but I know one of my daughter's would love it, and bungy jumping

...I'm glad to hear that I'm not the only person afraid of heights! This doesn't look like fun!!!

Not me! I did go zip lining one time in Costa Rica and I was terrified the entire time.

I love looking at stuff like that but no way that I am going to do it myself!! Later today I am going to nearby cliffside to video with my drone a couple who do rock climbing. They said that I needed to try it get the flavor of it. Nope, no thanks I told them. At 66 years old, gravity is not my friend.
