Hang Gliding for the nervous flyer – Rio

Editors Note: The one thing I love about this video is that Shaun is palpably pooping himself just before the leap of faith after his relaxed dialogue on Copacabana beach about how great seeing a city like Rio is from the air. But at the end of the day big-up to Shaun as he goes with the flow and enjoys what must be a truly memorable experience.

With the football World Cup and Olympics due in Brazil in 2014 and 2016 respectively, all eyes are on Rio, and what better way to see the city than from the air.

Shaun hang glides with instructor Mauro Sacramento in this video blog from Rio’s beautiful rock, ‘Pedra Bonita’ in Portuguese, landing on the equally stunning São Conrado beach.
