“The secret of flight is this — you have to do it immediately, before your body realizes it is defying the laws.”
― Michael Cunningham, A Home at the End of the World

I have always been interested in anything that has to do with flying and I have wanted to fly since I can remember. So when I recently had the chance to go on a flight in a micro light, I jumped at it. I was in France with a group of colleagues (picture below) and friends for a post doctoral psychology training. We stayed at a Chambres D’Hôtes in the Dordogne, called Chez Ilse (now renamed Le Chèvrefeuille ) in Pechboutier, near saint-Cyprien. The place is run by Ian and his wive Sarah

A great place to stay and enjoy the love Perigeux Noir area. The training was on a Transactional Analysis basis at Saint-Raphael, Meyrals in the Dordogne area in France, a place to heal and find yourself. The trainer is Maarten Kouwenhoven, a Supervisor Transactional Analyst (TSTA), he runs the place together with his lovely wife Manette. He told me about this frenchmen who would take anyone up.

So I drove over and made a beautiful flight over the Dordogne.
