Paragliding in Drama

The weather stays good and back on sea level, close to Lichora I even take a bath in the sea – probably for the last time this year
After driving around Mt Olympus to Lichora and visiting the Sanctuary of Zeus in Dion we are crossing Thessaloniki and hitting north-east to Drama. Most of the tourist only travel through this area as transfer to enter Turkey. We love this route across the mountains, along a National Park. Beautiful nature and colours now in the autumn.

And there are opportunities enough to fly. Yesterday I was lucky to get a evening flight while Vincent was driving up and the truck back down.

Because we are both pilots it’s always a challenge to figure out how to get on the mountain to the launch or after landing up again to get the truck. Sometimes it works with local pilots, sometimes with taxi, sometimes only one of us is flying or sometimes Vincent is picking it up again with the bike or by running.

In Drama we get in contact to the local Airclub. Two incredible friendly pilots advising, informing, driving, laughing and flying with us for two days. What a nice contact and three flights over the city of Drama.
