Flying Together: Six Aerial Activities To Experience Before You Die


How many times have we wondered if we could fly? How envious we humans are of birds,  butterflies, and airplanes?
Disappointingly enough, gravity and the human anatomy come between us and our desire to soar high in the sky. But luckily on the other hands, human beings have invented several devices and methods that can fulfill our dream to be flying together with all the other aerial creatures.
Extreme sports such as paragliding, skydiving, ballooning and bungee jumping are some ways of realizing this apparently impossible dream. These aerial activities are essential for our personal growth. These activities satisfy human thirst for thrill and adventure and infuse our lives with excitement thereby, allowing us as escape from our mundane existences. Although these endeavors come with a lot of uncertainty and risk, they end up rendering their pursuers with a sense of accomplishment and self-discovery.
These sports are a wonderful way of bringing us together with nature. It pushes us out of our comfort zone and making us perform extraordinary tasks. Flying together with your teammates or friends or family actually improves bonding.
Not only are these the highest level of physical activity, but can also eliminate the fear of heights and flying also called Acrophobia and Acrophobia. Through these sports, you can fly together with all your emotional baggage only to discover something new by the time you come to the ground.

Paragliding is closest we can come to experience what birds do. It is an adventure sport in which a wide wing-shaped canopy is attached to a person’s body with a help of a harness in order for them to glide through the air.  A Paraglider is a slow aircraft and is flown with the help of gravity, wind and pilot’s muscle power. Bazaruto Archipelago in Mozambique is considered one of the best places for paragliding experience.

Hot Air Ballooning

Hot Air Ballooning
Hot Air Ballooning is considered one of the safest aerial sports. It is sweetest and slowest air adventure as with the bird-eye view of the world and the lack of feeling of movement. It is basically a basket tied to a large balloon filled with hot air flown with the help of a propane burner. It travels in the direction of air and the only time you feel any movement is when it takes off and touches down. Not only is it a daytime activity but is also said to be taking place at might. Cappadocia, Turkey is considered to be one of the best places for hot air ballooning.
