Tambunan: My Paragliding Flights

My main role for this trip was to support my instructor in his search and inspection of possible fly sites. My bonus is the opportunity to fly on my own in between his flights.tambunan paragliding sabah malaysia

Testing the skies together before he allows me to fly solo…

SOLO FLIGHTS

After my mental breakdown earlier this year, my ability to learn a new skill has rapidly declined. Up until now, I still cannot take off by myself. I find this so frustrating. Thankfully, Pyro is like the epitome of patience.

No matter how frustrating things are for me lately, being airborne is a blessing I cling to each day. Up in the air is the only time my brain keeps silent.

While pyro helped me for my take-offs, Azizan would be waiting for me at the landing zone. Good teamwork.

Do you see him? He’s the tiny red dot in the middle of the field. Haha.tambunan paragliding sabah malaysia

I only had 1 flight each day for 2 days because my mood dramatically dropped again on our second day. #BeautifullyBipolar

Well, I am learning not to fight my condition anymore, but to embrace it and live with the energy that comes and goes.

When my mood is up, I take that window of opportunity to soar like a bird. And when my mood is down, I sulk in silence, until the darkness goes away.tambunan paragliding sabah malaysia

Nonetheless, I fell in love with Tambunan and I am looking forward to going back. ❤
