I recently visited my home country Slovakia. The nature in the summer time is very nice, everything is green, and the landscape is simply beautiful.
I simply had to arrange a flight to see this beauty from the air and to enjoy the feeling of freedom to fly around. My brother joined me and we were able to hire a Cessna 172 at a near aerodrome Očová (LZOC) for a short 1 hour flight. They have a grass strip 26/08, 800 meters long.
A lot of gliders and other aviation activities can be found there, such as paragliding, etc.
In the Canary Islands there are no possibilities to land on a grass strip, and most of the flights are above the sea. It is really great to enjoy a different landscape, with a lots of “alternative” airstrips.
Here are some of my images taken with the Gopro.
