I had signed up for a 10-day paragliding course in Brasov, Romania once I first arrived within the metropolis and had spend a complete of 14 precise days over the course of the next month coaching for my one remaining high-altitude flight from a close-by hill that the locals name “Bunloc.” I used to be afraid I might be unable to get this one huge flight in earlier than leaving Romania, however I managed to squeeze it in on my final day in Brasov.
I ended up getting two whole flights in really. The primary one was moderately quick and ended fairly nicely. The second flight was for much longer, as I discovered an updraft and was in a position to stay within the air for greater than 20 minutes earlier than touchdown in an open area on the backside of the mountain. On the touchdown, nevertheless, Robert (my teacher, who was within the air above me) feared that I is perhaps about to crash into a close-by home, however I landed safely and with out operating into something.
I had a good time studying paraglide in Romania… and if given the chance once more, I’ll actually fly once more!
