Le Blanc is known as one of the best skydiving areas in all of Europe. From the chateau, we can hear and see the planes and even the skydivers with their brightly colored parachutes. Very tempting…especially for Victor and Abraham who decided this was a once in a lifetime opportunity. So, after having a mandatory physical exam from a local doctor, signing release forms and taking a morning skydiving lesson from an expert who has completed over 10,000 jumps, the two were ready to go. Abraham was first. We all watched from the ground as the plane quickly ascended 5,000 feet or more in the air. First were the single jumpers, then at an even higher altitude (12,000ft) came Abraham jumping tandem with one of the instructors. Then it was Victor’s turn.

They both had a near perfect landing and said the experience was too cool for words.
