The hesitation clearly registers in my eyes as he deftly suggests that perhaps I'd prefer to sleep late in the uber-romantic Berghuis cottage he's arranged for Annette and I. I'm somewhat relieved, not only because I prefer being on the ground than in the sky, but if I'm going to fly, I want the aircraft to have two fans and two pilots – a spec Morné's nifty microlight can't offer me.
