Not your typical family vacation: a British family just s Gilo Cardozo, along with his brothers and neice, traveled from Monte Carlo to Morocco in electric paragliders that are powered by the sun. The 1242 mile journey took 15 days, including a sail over the shark-infested waters of the Straits of Gibraltar.
"Each day was a new adventure and what we have done is a remarkable feat. It has been an amazing amount of fun," says one of the voyagers. They made the journey in order to raise money for ataxia, a disease of the nervous system. It was a success: they made about $16,000 for the cause.
