Finally I was paragliding this summer…

October 5th, 2009

This summer I was paragliding at the Hochjoch (Montafon, Vorarlberg, Austria). It was a very exciting experience. If I had enough time in the moment I would start this Sport immediately. To log the flight I used my iPhone which I had in my pocket. I was surprised that the logged data was so good. (see map below)

Paragliding – A new hobby?

July 7th, 2008

Hi Guys!

Last weekend I had the chance to play with a para-sail of a friend of mine (Manuel Wehinger). He showed my some interesting basic things of paragliding and we played a little bit in the field.

There wasn’t enough wind to have “real” fun – but it was enough to get a feeling of “how strong a little bit of wind” can be.

In the moment I don’t have time to start a new hobby, but I think that it will be interesting for me in the next few years. I am fascinated of “flying through the air” since I’m young. I have often dreamed of flying with a para-sail in my childhood and maybe this dream will come true in some months or years.

A big “thank you” to Manuel for showing me some interesting stuff in this topic (He is already a pilot and has the licence)

Photos of the session are added below:
