My Glider adventure

Sunday morning
First of all I had to call  the flying centre if the  gliders would go up to day. And  Good news  Yahooooooo
Only a shower could spoil the fun.
After a  light  lunch we drove to the flying area.
I was not nerves at all.
I was sure of myself… This is what i wanted for a long time  and now  it was going to happen.
After  a  warm welcome i got a quick explanation what was going to happen.
SO  much young  ppl. They can fly  already  from14 tears old..My God  I had no idea.
First of all i had to wear a parachute…coz  safety first.
 
Than i had to try the seat Oepsie..  that was small. Safety belts on.
My Pilot  (  handsome guy  Lucky me)  was explaining all those meter readings..
And then  …we went into the air.
The glider went up  in such short time  with a speed of 100 km an hour.My God..Coz of the fact that there was a lot of wind,the glider  was reacting very heavy.
My stomach did bitty  wierd in the beginning..But Then   ohhhhhhh..wow..The  view.Fantastic view..I cant  say  what  i liked most.
The wind…the sky…or the earth down there..One of my colleagues  plays golf and the court  is in the neighbourhood of the  flying  area.
But i could not  see here..Looking  down like  this made  mefeel a bit  dizzy..But i forgot  that quickly.
well  after  2o minutes flying  we  came down  like a feather…

 i want to say tx  to  the pilot  He did a good job 
 Tx to  My colleagues coz it was a gift of them.
TX  Guys..

    Heeey’kes Marijke ! X
    oe is’t er mee? Dank ù wel voor de felicitaties ivm m’n rijbewijs. ‘k Ben idd zo fier als een gieter. ‘k Heb er immers hard voor geknokt & dan kreeg ‘k hem bijna nie mee op ‘t stadhuis. Bleek da m’n theorie zo nipt nipt aan ‘t vervallen was & dat dat voor problemen zorgde. Nu op ‘t examencentrum hebben ze daar nooit problemen rond gemaakt & dan heeft ze een telefoontje gedaan naar ginder & ja ‘t was dan toch nog in orde. Gelukkig ! ‘k Had haar anders wel van achter die toonbank kunnen sleuren, denk ‘k. Enfin, ‘k heb’t nu & niemand kan hem nog van me afpakken (behalve de flikken dan ^^)
    Hehe, ‘k kan geloven dat ‘t een grappig zicht was, maar nu heb je toch je ligzeteltje, hé 😉 Geniet er van !
     
    Prettige avond !

    14 tears old?  Boy!  Gliders sure are getting younger these days!  Kids are so much more clever than me!   At 14 tears old, I scarcely believe I discovered pablum yet…  Say you used your parachute and it left you stuck as an ornament on a tree too high up off the ground in the middle of nowhere?  Would you try and snatch birds for a living?  No!  ‘DO NOT TEST THE BORG THY BLOG!’  How about a nice, safe game of Tiddle Dee Winks? ;O)’I LIKE YOU LADY!  YOU’VE GOT GUTS!’ : ‘Ernest Borg Line:  (The Poseidon Adventure)’

  23. Jill says:

    Hi Sweeti,
    I am just popping over because it’s been a while and I appologise for that,
    I haven’t been well, I think it could be hay fever, because my head is all fuzzy and I have been sleeping for England.
    I am going to buy a hay fever remedy and see if it works.
    So it looks like we can’t enjoy the weather no matter what. We crave summer all year and then when it comes we’re allergic.
    Anyway I hope you’re having a lovely day and you are enjoying the weather.
    Take care xxx
