Don't look down... or do🙈 when paragliding in southern Germany.
There were 3 reasons I convinced my mom that we needed to stay in Garmisch-Partenkirchen: (1) it would break up our drive from Salzburg, (2) the relative proximity to Linderhof Castle, and (3) PARAGLIDING. I've never done it before, but the idea of tandem paragliding around the German Alps was enough for me to get on board... and which I eventually convinced my mother as well.
I am not normally afraid of heights, but I was definitely nervous to do this. We went up a lift, our pilots set everything up, and with a few commands and light running, we were off. It was like.... floating. It is difficult to describe how effortless it felt. But maybe that's because I wasn't doing any of the controls 🤷♀️. Either way this has got to be the closest I will ever be to flying without being in an aircraft.
Before long my mother was in the air with her pilot and I could hear her “WHOO HOOO!!”-ing up a storm. The views were absolutely stunning. We flew over hiking paths, a deep gorge (seen in the photo), near the mountains, and I could see lake Eibsee in the distance. It’s a pricey activity but man was it worth it. Every moment was appreciated. ... #Germany #Bavaria #visitgermany #germanysworld #adventuretravel #adventurenthusiasts #wildernessnation #amongthewild #allaboutadventure #outside_project #outdoortones #folkscenery #exploremore #alwaysgo #traveldreamseekers #nomadgirls #travelgirlsgo #traveltips #travelwithme #traveljournal #travellife #ilovetravel #letsgosomewhere #bestintravel #bestvacations
