Parasailing; the new recreational item on our bucket list thanks to media girl Patricia Kihoro and filmmaker Wanuri Kahiu.
Parasailing is a popular vacation thrill where a person is towed behind a boat while attached to a specially designed canopy wing that resembles a parachute, known as a parasail wing.
According to Patricia Kihoro, it looks scary but it is breathtaking. I’m inclined to agree with her!
The ‘AfroCentral’ radio show presenter shared a short clip of her parasailing experience alongside ‘Rafiki’ filmmaker Wanuri Kahiu on Instagram, and it was enough to convince a lot of her fans to add parasailing to their bucket lists.
The two rafikis, who worked together in the lesbian love story ‘Rafiki’, did the parasailing in Costa Rica; the newest favorite holiday destination among Kenyan travel vloggers and globetrotters.
Patricia traveled to Costa Rica’s Capital San Jose as part of her 33rd birthday celebrations, taking a flight from Nairobi to NewYork and through Panama.
A couple of days ago, Ms Kihoro served some sauce on IG as she stepped out in a bikini looking sunkissed by the tropical sun above Manuel Antonio, one of the popular destinations in Costa Rica.
In another post, Kihoro shared a picturesque shot of her parasail with Wanuri, gliding through the air on a Superman parachute.
“So @wanuri and I did a thing. Parasailing was breathtaking,” she wrote.
She captioned her video: “It looks scary but it honestly was one of the most calming things I’ve ever done. With a couple of flashes of fear every once in a while when @wanuri would shift to try get more comfortable.”
