Hang Gliding Maui, Hana, HI

Hang gliding Maui proved to be the highlight of our trip! We arrived at the Hana airport to meet Armin, an FAA-certified flight instructor and tandem hang gliding pilot, who was going to be teaching us how to pilot a motorized hang glider, commonly referred to as a “trike.” The aircraft featured tandem seating (much like that of a motorcycle), as well as dual control from front and rear seats, and a backup ballistic parachute system, which acted as a way to insure our safety. 576 more words

Hanging in Cronulla

HANG GLIDERS were making the most of the blue skies and warm winds today, soaring low over Cronulla’s Elouera Beach, Sydney.

The summer winds were also serving up good swell in the water, with some beaches being closed by lifeguards – a move perhaps appreciated more by surfers than swimmers. 12 more words

bucket list day: an initial plan

Because the prompt* uses the word “luxuries” and “extravagant,” I will try not to think about how I would first use the unlimited funds to pay off all my student loans, and then purchase a lifetime gift card to Amazon so that I never have to think about whether or not I should buy x, y, z book! 352 more words
