The dream is to fly with vultures in the Himalayas

This space is for my journal entries and notes on paragliding, my oldest and newest obsession. I have been preoccupied by flight since my childhood, to the extent that it influenced both my academic and professional career path in the initial years.

I now approach it as a greenhorn paragliding pilot, and this will be a haphazard collection of notes on my own learnings related to the art, the science and the sport. Weather, safety/risk and movement are key themes here.

My eventual goal is to be an experienced cross-country pilot. There is quite a way before I get there, and I'm giving myself a good long time to achieve this.

The more I write here, the less I am out and up in the air.
