    Default I have crossed over to the other side

    Never again will I be able to look up at the sky in the same way as before,my eyes will hence forth always be turned skyward, searching for that breeze, that cloud that invites you there.

    Paragliding rocks!!

    Thanks Spike, I will heed your warning. Luckily we have two great instructors showing us the ropes - they represented RSA at the world paramotorglider championships in Czech Republic this year, came 6th out of 18 countries - not too bad for their first attempt.
