    Who says you need to spend loads of money to cross off things from your bucket list? Paragliding was sitting in my list for a long time and it was high time I crossed it off 💯 And the Paragliding capital of India, Bir , was where I went.

    Unlike it's Himachal counterparts, this hamlet is (thankfully) not commercialized yet. Which meant I could sit back on the dewy grass and watch the sky which was dotted with colors.. ♥️

    I could almost imagine myself flying. I had an option between flying solo or with a pilot. There were a few health considerations and a few documents that had to be produced. Fair enough I thought. Made me a bit skeptical but I wanted to proceed nonetheless!

    After reaching the destination, I quickly enrolled myself for my very first paragliding session. Since I was only an amateur, I chose to fly with a pilot. A joy ride 😂. Tandem Paragliding they called it 🙌 After the documentation , I was all geared up! Get set, fly! 👍

    Once we took off, all my fears vanished. I was now flying! ♥️ I was awestruck by the feeling that had washed over me. I had the stunning views of the Bir- billing valley and I was flying right over it 😍.

    Generally a flight time lasts for 15-20 minutes. But I was surprised how quickly time flew. It was only when we started nearing the ground that I realized that my flight had come to an end. My pilot, smoothly glided us back to the ground. If only it was possible to jinx time.

    I spent the rest of the evening at the paragliding point watching other take off and touch down. I was definitely in no hurry to go anyway! ♥️ I was even able to catch a beautiful sunset 🌄. The sun disappeared behind the horizon and I walked back with a bag full of memories 🙌
