A typical flight on the first day

The ups and downs of hike & fly

August 31, 2012


Arrived in Castejon de sos (well-known paragliding site) smiling and happy as we knew there would be pilots here who could give us accurate forecasts for the coming days. Unfortunately, a local paragliding school with access to the weather info has dashed our hopes by telling us that the strong northerly winds will continue for at least the next 4 days! This will mean there is no hope of flying and we are so weary of walking. We are trying to come to terms with this reality in one of the local bars, having so far consumed 2 strong coffees and 7 cakes each. We are consulting our maps for our next move.
