The next morning I was giving some thought to going para sailing and Deb was encouraging me to do so, as she wanted some reading time in the garden at the Meyson. with some trepidation I went and booked myself a flight. We had seen the launch point way up on the mountain and the booking agent said the van would be along shortly. Sure enough a few minutes later, i was in the van and on my way.

what can i say but.......awesome......the driver took us up to the top of Monte Alto in the Reserva Ecologica Monte Alto.........dirt roads that were more suited to my ATV than a two wheel drive standard 1990 something Chev van, hairpin turns, not enough room for two vehicles to pass, straight over the edge cliffs, and arrived at a meeting spot at the top with a concrete launch pad to jump off the mountain, parasail and pilot attached. This place was the site of the 2002 Red Bull Parasailing competition and it is easy to see why

Got to the edge, took a few pics, and then strapped on the harness and over we first it felt like you were getting lifted by your ......and then comfort and gliding, swooping over trees, meeting other parasailers at 2500 feet above the lake and then slowly drifting down toward the town. The pilot spoke English, and I was just the baggage but it was incredible as you will see by the pics. Maybe the biggest rush for a hundred bucks I will ever get! check out the pics of the snow covered mountain in the background. I parasailed with Ramone who is the head pilot- at ParaGliding Valle, I think it is his website but email is at Phone number is 01 726 26 2 66 80. highly recomended by me, who knows nothing about parasailing but the operation was first class and the flight was incredible
