    How wonderful! I've done the parasailing thing. It was a blast!

    By the way, if you ever travel to the States, New York State in particular, Lake George has a marvelous parasailing thingy that is just breath-taking!

    Cheers, Karen!

    Oh Wow, sounds like fun. Were you strapped to an instructor or were you on your own. I would love to have a go but only if I was with someone who knew what they were doing :chuckle

    well I am terrified of heights but it was ok!! was on my own!! did day one of the elementary pilot course, which is basically how to check a glider (thats what they call a paraglider) take off and land.. also spent time practising falling over! then we found a hill... and I flew!! got to above the trees. so peaceful and utterly amazing. my problem now is to go on and completer the course will cost about 2000 (thats including the gear) and I dont have that kind of money to throw away! so thats it for now but will just have to start saving.

    it was just so good...........
