You begin from Bir, hike 14 kms. to reach Billing – the launch site. They harness you in less than a minute and you are ready to connect with your adventurous side.
My feet started to shake when my glider asked me to run down the slope. “What if I fall? What if the parachute doesn’t open? What if I make a fool of myself? And then I saw a 10 year old flying with his glider. That was enough impetus for me to give some competition to Usain Bolt. And that’s how I started running too. In 5 seconds that seemed like 5 long minutes, my parachute caught the drift and we soared high. I still remember when my feet went up in the air; I felt like a Skylark.
In the words of P.B. Shelly,
“Higher still and higher
From the earth thou springest
Like a cloud of fire;
The blue deep thou wingest,
And singing still dost soar, and soaring ever singest.”
The Azure Sky & the Finished Puzzle:
The pieces on the ground from up in the air, seem all part of a puzzle. A puzzle that’s been finished for long. A puzzle that starts to make sense when looked at from such height.
When you fly this high in the air, everything looks beautiful. In that short time frame, you develop compassion for the world – the lush, green valleys; the pretty, colorful houses and fellow human beings.
