For my 28th birthday, my boyfriend surprised me with a tandem flight over Cape Town. I had never done anything like this before, but I was very excited (and a little bit nervous).
The whole experience was great. The preparations of the parachute, waiting for the gust of wind, running off the hill, flying above Green Point, landing right next to the ocean, all was documented by a GoPro that was operated by my flight partner.
The flight itself was only 5 minutes, which is quite short. Nevertheless, I did enjoy my birthday present, and would love to paraglide more in the future.
