Tandem Fund Raising・タンデムでXアルプスの募金
I decided to offer tandem rides in exchange for donations to my X-Alps fund. Today, Mary-Ellen, an assistant English teacher in Amakusa, was the first to take me up on this offer. For those interested, please get in touch!
I've flown with her before, so she already knew the drill, making the takeoff easy in spite of very light and variable winds.
We spent a very enjoyable time in the air. She likes paragliding and is thinking about taking flying lessons herself. Mary-Ellen, I'm glad you had a good time, and thank you for supporting me and my X-Alps project!
