I had heard a lot about Annecy right from my initial flying days in Himalayas. Thanks to Philippe and Agnes, flying in Annecy is now a dream comes true. Monmin flying site (1275 mt. ASL) is very special...very beautiful. You can fly over lake Annecy or make a good XC to the mountains behind the take-off. The nearest and common LZ is at Dussard (4 kms.)

This sand dune site in the South West of France near Bordeaux is quite a fun place. After a super active flying time at Millau this turned out to be a full ‘shanti trip’. I got 3 days of good flying...some deep acro-practice very close to the ground (sand)...and company of two very nice German families. 'Danke' friends.

Dune flying at Jaisalmer Dune flying at Jaisalmer
10-13 February 2008
I always wanted to fly in dunes. This was a good opportunity as I was heading to attend Karishma's wedding at Jaipur. With a local PG pilot at Jaisalmer I finally managed to kite and fly in dunes. These dunes are about 60-80 feet tall. But as my friend Phillipe says...there is no dune like 'Pyla Dune'...and I shall try that soon.
