I stepped off the mountain this afternoon and soared with the birds. I must say it was a magical experience flying with High Adventure Paragliding.

Its so peaceful as you bank and turn riding the breeze. This is another This Life List adventure checked off.

We are back in Thailand and this time I’m paragliding, which was one incredible and terrifying experience. I had never even considered doing it until my mum pointed it out at a price that was irresistible to us considering in Australia it would cost around $100. So without hesitation (okay maybe a little hesitation) I decided to paraglide, which ended up costing just $30.

So this is probably a good time to mention we were doing this on the packed beaches of Phuket behind a speedboat, which would pretty much take a trip along the shallow water and come back in with my guide and I in tow. That seemed fine so of coarse I got myself strapped in and was instructed to run along the beach before taking off. Damn that thing could give you a wedgie but that wasn’t my biggest worry that would’ve been the guy just hanging onto the strings holding the parachute to the harness. So with no time to have a civil conversation to the lunatic just hanging on like he did this every day (which he did so I guess that makes it alright?), I looked out at the beauty of the Thai beach. It was beautiful with the sunset in the background making for a perfect view and photo and the people looking like ants from my position in the sky. I couldn’t believe how awesome the whole scene was and as we turned around to land I was wishing I could do it again. Sure I was hurting and a little paranoid about the somewhat loose and suffocating harness but that view was worth it and if the guy on the lines could do it without any protection I shouldn’t be complaining.

So on my way down I realised why this guy was hanging behind me, it was to alert people to our coming in so they’d move out of the way and then to guide us down. I worried about us navigating our way through the crowd but I guess the people knew what was going on because they quickly moved out of the way and we were back on the ground.  

I loved every moment of my paragliding experience and the best part was being able to appreciate my surroundings and just understand how lucky I am to be able to travel. Paragliding cost a very small amount of money to people such as my mum and I however a lot of the kids and even adults sitting along the shores would see it as something life changing so to be able to do something like that in another country is something unforgettable.

One of my friends just after my college years, Bill Strand, suggested one day that we go paragliding.  I met him at church and he was always coming up with these random things. (I ended up doing several 5Ks and 10Ks with him for the same reason.)  So why not?  We did not get pictures that day because it was before everyone had cameras on their phones.  But let's just say my early attempts do not look like the pretty picture here.  It was hard! But I'm glad I tried it.

Paragliding was something I have always wanted to do. When I was on holiday when I was younger I always watched others flying and gliding in the air. Life always looked so simple up there! Anyway I finally did it and I can honestly say it was one of the best things I have ever done especially doing it with my best friend, Haylie!

This was such an incredible experience! I've actually been twice, both from the same place. I was 14 the first time I did it, I wish I could've stayed up there forever! Looking down on the sea and the town and all the tourists made me feel like I was on a different planet! I loved every minute of it!
