I haven’t had much time to write over the past year. When I have all my energy has been focused on theparaglider.com – a fantastic new online paragliding magazine I joined last year. I was a bit shocked, though, to realise that it had been almost a year since I’d last updated here – missing so many fantastic adventures with so many fantastic people.
I’m actually sat back in Panajachel, Guatemala now, getting ready to head off to South America again, wondering where the year’s gone! So, as much to remind myself about the fun of the last 12 months, I thought I’d compile a few of the highlights all in one post.
And there were a lot… starting and finishing the year in Guatemala, running our first trips with Fly Sussex in Madeira and Annecy, dropping base jumpers off the tandem over the sea in Turkey, a few flights and sites I’ve had my eye on for a while and, one of the best for me, flying my niece on the tandem for the first time over Lake Annecy.
Which brings us to today – we’ve just seen in the New Year, watching and hearing the town explode with 100 different firework displays, and we’re getting ready to head off down to Chile, Argentina and Peru to explore new mountains for a few weeks.
I’ll try and update in the meantime, but if I’m honest, it’s unlikely! We’re travelling light, so won’t have the laptop, but hopefully at least, it won’t be quite so long until the next post! In the meantime, you can enjoy our very first video!
Happy New Year one and all!
