Adventures in Wonderland
I went to Colombia over the summer and I was just reminiscing about how much fun I had. I’m afraid of heights, yet I gave paragliding a whirl. That’s me in the air. It was truly amazing. I was dying of anxiety before take-off but once the wind lifts you in the air, all the fear is lifted with it. It’s different than I imagined. You feel weightless rather than out of control (as you might during a free-fall). We were able to fly over Medellin for a total of 50 minutes! On a nice day, you can stay in the air almost indefinitely. Once I had my share of enjoying the vista, we made several attempts at landing but were finally able to come right back to the spot at which we took off. The best part is that it only cost me US$35!
I’m already dreaming of my next vacation. Does anyone have any ideas for European travel on a student’s budget?
