Yes, I literally fly by the seat of my pants.

I have been running off hills for many years now. When the Internet was brand new I had one of the first web sites that dealt with the sport. I wrote about the flying holidays I had in various countries around Europe and effectively ‘blogged’, before the term was coined, about my ups and downs(pun intended) of my flying experiences. I had emails from around the world inviting me to go to various places so that I might then write about the experience and thus promote those regions. Bulgaria was the one and only place I went to on this basis.  England, Wales, Scotland, France, Spain, Austria, Switzerland, Czech Republic, Crete and Lanzarote were places I went to without being coaxed there.
