Adventure is something we feel in our daily life ! Hi, I am a kind of person who always want to fly high in the sky but at the same time scared of heights too. It’s a rare combination where you are having reverse relationship with a thing you had ever dreamt of but had never tried to do the same.
I had always dreamt of doing Paragliding alone but flying alone was something that always haunts me.
I was in Goa for 3 days for official conference and the last day was sports day where we all can try any water sports. Firstly,I had never been so close to sea and all the scenic beauty of sea what was in my mind was completely different and the reality was totally opposite. Instead of blue green water it was black.
We ride on boat and was looking at the sea suddenly huge waves appeared and we were back and far away from the shore. For the first time I tasted sea water which was oily and dirty. For a moment, I felt as had drank kerosene oil and started coughing. We started once again and this time we were successful and boat reached in the middle of sea. There was one more boat waiting for us and it was for Paragliding. All my colleagues were waiting for their turns. We all were in the same boat and yes it was the first time for each one of us. We decided we will be flying in pairs so that one is feeling little secure emotionally. Trust me, like good students we paired our self but I found no one to fly with me and I was lonesome to experience this flying. My heart was sobbing from inside and it was screaming inside No Never but having a big smile on my face said Oh! No Worries! hahaha!
Finally the so called instructor was giving me instructions that we will bring you back in the sea water. You have to just touch your heels and imagine you are running like a good student nodded. Armored with safety kits and safety jacket was thinking as if am a gladiator or a warrior going for a war.
When the flight has taken off from ground and hit start going up and started screaming a lot like a kid who is scared but hides it in screaming and shrieking. Yeah ! Yeah ! and tried looking down was feeling my heart will be out.
I noticed blue and clear sky and found some dolphins swimming in the ocean and completely amazed. When I start enjoying by the time the slot was over and was back into the boat. So, must say It was happy experience and had enjoyed it thoroughly.
