One of the most interesting things about this video, however, is that it is paired with some very “special sound recording techniques” which requires headphones or high-quality speakers to fully appreciate. Thibault Darscotte is a sound engineer who has fitted this video with sounds and rhythm of nature’s harmony. And he’s done a fine job with it: you can hear everything from the rustling of grass to the beating of butterfly wings, as well as the impressive swooshing of the paraglide itself as Blic turns tricks in the air.
Guides worldwide will tell you that paragliding is no easy feat, but those with a knack for big adventure will certainly want to try the experience. Blic, believe it or not, started paragliding when he was just eight years ago. You can also paraglide on his home turf, in the French Pyrenees. You can even fly over the Himalayas with him – although it’s probably not an excursion for those with a fear of heights.
For something even more different, try paragliding in Italy, from the top of Monte Baldo (over 2300 metres high!) over Lake Garda.
