Paragliding in Queenstown by Levi

When we were in Queenstown I went paragliding.  First, I went up to the top of the mountain in a gondola.  We got to the top and went to the paragliding office and met my paragliding instructor. He packed up a bag with a parasail, helmets and a harness for me.  We then rode a chairlift higher up the mountain.  Then we hiked to the top.  We found a nice spot on the grass and my instructor set everything up.  Then it was time to go, so he harnessed me in and put on my helmet and gloves.

  We walked down the hill, the parasail went up and then we were in the air.  We shot forward and I could see all of Queenstown. It was amazing!  On the way down, we did spins to the right and left and big turns.  We landed on a big grass field where my Mom and brothers were waiting.
