    Sounds like a hoot! I’d love to try this and think your no drinks the night before is VERY sound advice. I didn’t know you could stay hungover for more than a day!

      Neither did we, Leigh. Hopefully, we won’t have to experience that again. But flying with Sky Rebels is definitely something we want to do again.

    How fun! There’s something similar near me that I’ve been dying to try – nothing like turning another decade to remind you to up your adrenaline game!

      We didn’t expect to still be hungover, Meg. But flying’s definitely not one of our recommended cures. We prefer a day at home, slowing coming out of the hangover after a lie-in. Aided by soup and an old black and white film on television. Hey, it works for us!

      Well, it was actually only a small section of the island we flew over, Mary. We’d love to do some of their other routes. Just not with a hangover.

      Mrs Gran Canaria Local was too scared to go to, Lillie. So, you’re in good company. What will be our next big adventure on GC? Stay tuned.

    Would really love to do it. I’ve only gone paragliding in Nepal and loved it. I don’t think I’ll drink the night before though. I can’t imagine being so high up with a hangover!

      The dunes of Maspalomas are pretty darn spectacular at ground level, Bram. From above, they’re even more so.
