Day 89 – Oludeniz – Paragliding

Up at 7 and ready for our huge day!! Breakfast in us and off to Easy Rides office to meet the jeep that would transport us to 1950 metres up Babadag mountain. It was a pretty scary ride up in the jeep and the only way we were going down was by the chute! We got up top by 10 and were teamed up with our pilot. Photos taken and we were away...Annelise first, lifted up pretty well, then Ross, then Jackson, Jess then lastly me...the pilot had a problem with the strings on the chute for a bit, but all ok and we were up up and away.. It is an amazing experience, well worth the trip. Just so neat for all 5 of us to be up in the air together. We looked at the video afterwards and looks pretty good too. You look right over all the resorts, blue lagoon etc, just so pretty.

We were all down after 30 – 40 mins in the air, then back to town to celebrate our jump with a beer and watched the all blacks play Italy at a pub.I lay down for a sleep in the afternoon, we all chilled around the pool. Ross went to sort out some ideas for our next move of our trip. Then in evening went to a very funky cool bar/restaurant on the beach and watched lots of paragliders land. Had nice dinner, walked through night markets and Jackson had a very cool charicature drawn of him, on a skateboard...very cute. All shattered after a huge day
