Vrinda whipped up some delicious gajar halwa (desert) on Sunday afternoon after which we took off the Shelar site for some Sunday sunset flying. I clocked in my longest flight yet at 2 hours 10 minutes! We returned sated our smiles reflecting fulfilling flights 🙂
It was great fun to watch every pilot take off and quickly rise above the Shelar Mountain. There were nearly 20 pilots who had already taken to the air – Rinul Pashankar, Dylan Fernandes and Hiren Savla were amongst them. It was time for Apoorva Talwalkar and Me to join them. Finally, I said to myself with a big grin, I’m going to fly.
Why December you may ask: it is the holiday season, it is too cold to fly in Europe and here at Kamshet we have consistent sunshine, great flying weather and the vibrant yet serene native place guesthouse with its great food, atmosphere and friends to go home with at the end of the day.
We have for you a photo blog of the highlights of this weekend at Native Place and Nirvana Adventures. Paragliding training, rare bird sightings, fun times flying and enjoying all that Native Place has to offer.
Sunday was an amazing day. We all got pretty high. Dylan got up to 1500 and headed out as planned. He flew downwind and landed at Lonavala about 10 km as the crow flies. Some of us went to retrieve him and when he met he said with a big grin “I left the dog to die’ A phrase we picked up from Jocky Sanderson.
