first times

'se hai provato per una volta l'emozione del volo, camminerai per sempre sulla Terra con gli occhi rivolti al cielo...'* Leonardo Da Vinci dixit (at least that's what they say that he once said... whatever!).

today I was looking through my photos and I found this picture of last summer, when my boyfriend and I went to the Pyrenees to do some paragliding. it was my idea, actually the boyfriend was super scared about it because he hates to fly and everything related to it (and with that I mean that he hates planes, airports and all this stuff, but now he's kind of getting over his fears... after all, I think that paragliding was the best therapy!!).

that said, don't judge me, I'm not crazy... it's just that I like to be a little adventurous every now and then!!! you know, adrenaline is quite addictive, and when you are up there you feel like you could 'run the world' in Beyoncé words, or be 'the king of the world' in Leonardo Dicaprio words (yes, I'm quoting Titanic...). and of course I was nervous before I jumped the cliff but was absolutely worth it, the view was incredibly breathtaking! and it was worth it even though I looked like the Atom Ant with that oversized equipation and huge helmet... I'm not kidding, I looked totally ridiculous!!! so, if you have a chance... try it! I swear I'll do it again...

thank you so much for stopping by and for your comments, they always make my day!!!
