When You Live in the Swiss Alps You Can Paraglide to Work

(wind whooshing) (dog panting) (cheerful instrumental music) - [Narrator] Nestled high in the Swiss Alps, there's a tiny village. It's got all the things you might expect in a quaint mountain community: chalets, breathtaking views, cable cars, but there's one thing you might not expect. Paragliders. The people who live here love to paraglide. They love it so much that some even commute to work on a paraglider, even their dogs love to paraglide. Okay, at least one dog anyway. In fact, around 10% of village residents are active paragliders. Welcome Vercorin, Switzerland. Meet Marie, she's a village resident who naturally loves to paraglide. (Marie speaking in a foreign language) And boy do they fly. Some every single day. (Marie speaking in a foreign language) Think it'd be faster just to hop in your car? Think again. (Marie speaking in a foreign language) (machine whooshing) (cheerful instrumental music) Marie sometimes brings her dog Maya along too. (Marie speaking in a foreign language) Turns out Maya loved it. (Marie speaking in a foreign language) (dog barking) (Marie speaking in a foreign language) (cheerful instrumental music) But it's not only sharing the skies with her best friend and fellow Vercorin paragliders that keep Marie flying. (Marie speaking in a foreign language) (cheerful instrumental music) (bell dinging)
