These are: Europe, Asia, Africa, North America, South America, Australia and the Antarctic. Petar started paragliding twelve years ago, and his dream of being a welgler is just as old. He has traveled around 65 countries since then. The hardest part of his dream to realize was a flight in the Antarctic. When he left there in November 2018, he only expected a ten percent chance of getting blown up. The reason: strict nature conservation requirements and an unpredictable weather. Nevertheless, a small flight window opened. More pictures of Petar's adventures can also be found on Instagram.
