The wind wasn't perfect, but it was good enough. The travel frame is a bit heavy, if I had a 2 wrap (or even a standard 3 wrap) I think I would have been perfect.

I followed up an afternoon of flying by taking my kite out to a lovely Spanish dinner accompanied by some Sangria.

I haven't told her yet that I want to see other kites... There's a vented in my future (at some point).

Certainly! I'm back in the USA, need to catch-up on a few things, but definitely soon! Xay was interested in flying at some point as well.
