Paragliding !

"Who has been in the sky, will always walk looking at it, wishing to go back"

Leonardo DaVinci
Well...these aren't the exact words but it was something like that :), the thing is that you've just discovered my Paragliding page :).

If you don't know what a paraglider is, well, first, let me tell you that the feeling has nothing to do with jumping off a plane with a parachute (no adrenaline burst), it's more like floating (like in a dream), or if you prefer it resembles hanggliding but at slower speeds (no flames about who's better between paragragliders and hanggliders please, after all we share the same dream of flying with our own wings :), now as they said a picture is worth a thousand words:

Dany at Bilbao 1998
Yep, that's me in my old trusty very old glider over Sopelana beach near Bilbao in Spain ( 1998 ). (don't worry i finally got a new one :-)

Dany at Arbas 2000
Yep, this is also me but this time in my new performance glider a Galaxy Scorpion III, landing at the Arbas site in the French Pyrenees ( 2000 ).

Back to TopTribes (Clubs)
You know, everywhere i have been flying i get the feeling that paraglider pilots are just a one big family, especially in the clubs i made part of.

These are the paragliding clubs which i had or have the pleasure of being part of:

Parapente Club Santafe de Bogota (Bogota - Colombia), My home club at Colombia, great people and a lot of good friends, if you go there to fly contact them or me and i'll give you all the contacts out there.

Logo Toiles du Sud (my unofficial version ;)Toiles du Sud (Toulouse - France) , My actual club in France, it's composed by great people and very good friends (they are like a big family :-), if you come flying in France near the Pyrenees contact them, (well it's not the official logo but i like this modification (my own) better since is more modern looking ;-)

YCC (Caracas - Venezuela), well i wasn't really part of them but i flied with them the semester i lived in Venezuela and they are very nice people.
