Having placed our marker quite well at the first “hare and hounds”, we were already prepared for something, but we didn’t quite expect what happened at the prize giving: Not only did we win the competition, the prize was also a big surprise! So we will spend the next balloon meetings emptying a 4.5 liter [...]
Another tradition an Szczecinek is the “Splash Or Grab” for the last flight on Sunday evening: The balloon teams have to seek a launch point for themselves and fly towards the lake to grab a flag placed on a floating platform. This year, we missed it for more than 200 meters… but we enjoyed the [...]
Sunday morning offered another beautiful flight above Szczecinek… and another competition! However, as we had already used our only marker the day before (a special Szczecinek rule), it was mere training for us to catch up with the fox – but we made it nevertheless :-) Thank you Aeronautic Team for giving us a ride [...]
With our flight on Saturday evening, the day wasn’t done yet… the best was still to come! :-) Organisers Marlena, Ewa and Bartosz had created an amazing show with night glow and fireworks, full of lovely music and emotions. Thank you so much for these special moments! [...]
For the Saturday evening flight, winds finally were low enough to allow the first competition at Szczecinek. For the launch, we had bought some holi colours to shed from the basket… and the fox chase (or hare and hounds, as it is called officially) was quite successful… but more about that later ;-) Thanks again [...]
Greetings from Poland! ;-) We have arrived safely at Szczecinek and already did a magnificent (but thrilling!) evening flight at Luboradza yesterday. They really do have a lot of wood here… ;-) Now we’re relaxing before the first official flight, which is scheduled for tonight 19.30 local time. Fingers crossed for nice weather and low [...]
Exactly two years ago, we had a most amazing time at Marijampolé, Lithuania, celebrating the 3rd Junior World Hot Air Balloon Championship with young balloonists from all around the globe! Short nights, thrilling flights, great parties and wonderful international friendship among all the participants made the days in Lithuania a time to remember! :-) This [...]
The passion of a lifetime: To behold the stunning beauty of our world like no one else, free like a bird, high in the sky, yet one with nature, using the oldest principle of flight known to man: Lighter than air.
No wings, no noise, no pressure… just serenity, just perfect bliss. At one with the elements… at one with yourself.
This is why we live A LIFE OF BALLOONING.
