Flying with a big balloon.. ie. Paragliding!

We spent 2 days at Grenoble. Thanks to my friend Severine’s encouragement, we decided to try Paragliding at St. Hilaire, a village outside of Grenoble. Apparently it is a very popular place for paragliding in France and Europe.

Getting reading to jump!

We spent the night at my friend Marie-Sophie’s house in Grenoble and had the chance to attend a ‘block party’, as it happened to be the National neighbor’s day in France. People were hanging out, local band playing popular music, and dancing. A perfect way to spend a Friday night!
