As Orla pulled out of the bungy jump....wimp! We decided to do hang-glidding instead.....so thats what we -did. The bus picked us up and we met our pilots -Wolfgang from Germany and Zander from Japan, so I was thinking which to go with a German or a Jap......hmmmmm a hard choice eh! so we didn't get a choice Orla was with the German and Kieran was with the Jap. We were all suited up in a matter of minutes and after a quick run down (in complete mumbo jumbo English that just involved alot of hand waving and smiling) on what we had to do we were off, it all happened very fast. Suddenly we were on the run way! or the side of the hill running down it and taking off. It was great though, just glidding through the air, then the German said to Orla "do you want to do some fun stuff?" yiep, so we were doing a bit of freefalling, and they both let us glide it for a minute, the job. Then the landing, so wierd and it was a really fast landing. O! and the view over Queenstown was amazing! So its 10 out of 10 for the old hang glide, as they say done tick si claro!!!!!!!!!!!!!
