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! ;)

These photos were captured by a good friend of mine, Bruno!

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!

After climbing several meters over the take-off location, we have overflown that spot.
Regarding to my flight… check out how I was enjoying it! :)
