Friends Tuulia Kastevaara and Jesse Tirkkonen engage in paragliding in Otava, Mikkeli.
Engines running on gasoline allow them to fly for up to half an hour over the Finland's biggest lake Saimaa.
If you want to fly you need the most placid weather and, even then, you probably won't reach the sky. The sunrises and sunsets are the most spectacular moments to be in the sky.
Practice includes many crashes and failures. Hard work, however, is rewarded because many are fascinated by paragliding and the genuine feeling of flying.
