  1. I’ve tried parasailing, I’ve yet to try paragliding. I have fear of heights so it really needs some serious mental conditioning before I do anything that would require me to be up in the air, like when I went parasailing. Even when it was totally safe, I couldn’t stop myself from thinking morbid thoughts. So if ever I do paragliding, I’d have to really prepare myself psychologically and emotionally. Looking at these marvelous views though, I really do think they’d be great to see from above so yeah, paragliding may just be in my near future.
