Sometimes life can be really surprising and joyful! :)

My girlfriend prepared me a surprise and offered me
a paragliding baptism flight…
of course my dear, my HUGE THANK YOU!!!
It was great!!!
You've reached the point! ;)

To my friend Evandro, my deep thankfulness for your
support and encouragement!

To all my readers, please think wisely and go, at least,
for a tandem flight…
It's simply amazing, peaceful and give us an huge freedom.

You must give it a try!

Shortly after take-off… as you can see those trees are close.
Our take-off platform is located some 700m high.

This was my biggest “fear”: to look downwards and have no floor…

On our highest flight altitude, we've reached 1000m, about 3.280ft.

Are you enjoying your flight?!
OK, seat back, relax and enjoy it! :)
Looking up to capture our wing (10mm) shot.
Up there there's another Paraglider: My Friend Evandro!

This one is for you! :)

Down there you can see “Madalena do Mar”.
That beach would be, latter, our landing runway :)

Finally…
Many thanks to Paulo Branco for this smooth and unforgettable flight.

This one goes to my girlfriend, Fátima!
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS AMAZING SURPRISE!!! :)
I Just LOVED IT!
:)
