I'm not interested in falling (skydiving), I'm interested in FLYING! That's kind of where hang gliding came in.  Being afraid of heights my whole life has kept me from pursuing extreme activities like bungee jumping, going on a scary roller coaster or sky diving! But.. I do love travel and when I got the opportunity to head to Rio de Janeiro, I researched unique activities here and hang gliding kept coming up! I believe in trying new experiences in general, and the more I read, the more I became convinced that I had to do this while in Rio! Researched and found an amazing Hang Gliding Professional and documented it all here:

  • I should start by saying I no longer get a rush when I do these adventures. However hang gliding was a blast. Towed behind a glider to 2000ft.we reached the clouds and were flying blind. It was like being in heaven. As we pulled loose from the plane we soared like birds through the mist with a view of the land and water below. Then when given the opportunity to do acrobatics I jumped at the chance. We did dips and spins. It was amazing. The landing was surprisingly more smooth then take off. And my pilot was pretty damn cute too. Overall, a great experience.

 OMG! This was an incredible experience!!  For this tandem flight, we started in the valley and were towed up a few thousand feet by a light-weight plane by cable; when it is released there is a sudden jerk that heightens adrenaline and then everything is so quiet and soft. The tandem partner then demonstrates and gives instruction so that I was able to pilot it for a distance. We slowly descend and then, it's time for the landing and W-O-W you accelerate very fast!! I felt like an eagle swooping down for its' prey! It was fantastic and I highly recommend this activity!

Hang gliding i Byron Bay over Cape Byron Lighthouse. Flot udsigt, lidt kedeligt og ubehageligt at hænge deroppe. Det ser federe ud end det var :D
