They have come to Barcelona because they are studying in Europe and want to fly in a tandem paraglider to celebrate the birthday of one of them.

I propose to go to Ager to carry out the activity, because, in that place, the weather forecasts are excellent for a quality flight.

The town of Ager is about 2 hours drive from Barcelona, but I propose them to stop during the trip, to buy some food.

On our journey to Ager we stop at Bellcaire to buy fresh fruit. The farmers in the area have a shop where they sell the fruit that they have recently collected from the trees, and which they sell directly to customers, without going through a supermarket. In this way, the fruit that we find in the store is the freshest there is.

My clients love the taste of fresh fruit!

Once we bought fruit, we continued our journey to the flight area, in the village of Ager.

The weather conditions are good for flying at noon, that is, at lunchtime.

In arriving at our destination, my clients fill out the appropriate forms for flights. The activity is protected by an insurance company.

Once the bureaucratic procedures are done, we drive the vehicles to take off, and my pilots prepare the equipment to fly.

 

My clients receive the basic instructions for the flight. Everything is ready to take off.

Helen y Elly take off simultaneously with two pilots. They fly together. Their paragliders fly in parallel, so that, they enjoy doing the same flight at the same time.

They are floating! 

This is so cool!

Videos of their takeoff!

The paragliders ascend to a high altitude and the pilots perform some acrobatic maneuvers with the paraglider, to make the flight more exciting!

My clients shout:  “Ayo! Ayo! Ayowa!” = It means: “Come on! Enjoy!”

Acrobatic maneuvers!

Once the passengers have landed, we have chatted with the pilots about the flight.

I am very proud because my clients have flown paragliding with the best pilots.

I have prepared a surprise for them: it is a Sacher chocolate cake, with a personalized inscription (Happy birthday, Elly!) for the celebration 🎂🥳

Then we have eaten the fruit that we had bought during the trip, sitting on the landing and sunbathing.

It is a very sunny April day and the temperature is very pleasant.

We have talked about the flight and the good life that is lived in Barcelona.

Before returning, we decided to walk around the town of Ager and take some beautiful photos.

This has been the most exciting experience of their life!

I am very happy to have become part of his birthday celebration.

-“AYOOOOOO !!!”

See you!
