My First EVER Zipline Experience: Flying at 426.5 feet

Guys, I finally crossed ziplining off my bucket list. While prepping for my Italy trip, I stumbled upon Il Volo dell’Angelo – the Flight of the Angels – and knew, instantly, I had to make it happen. HAD TO. You see, Volo dell’Angelo is one of the highest ziplines in the world. Two separate lines …
