That’s something I’ve always wanted to do: to cross Munich with a balloon! And today, weather, wind direction and speed were really nice for this flight. Taking off right next to the place I live, cold morning winds led me right over the Olympia Park and the BMW world, two of the most famous landmarks [...]
Winter has returned to Germany… so we’re heading south! ;-) Within three days time, we’ll be on our way to the Festival delle mongolfiere in Forlì, Italy… a new adventure in a new country.

Since last Friday, we’ve got a new thing on our bucket list: In the early morning, 82 hot air balloons launched from Lydden Hill Race Circuit near Dover to cross the Channel from England to France.

The first one led us from their garden in Radebeul over the “Spitzhaus” and Moritzburg [...]
We made it! This morning, our ferry reached the harbour of Marseille, where we embarked on this exciting journey exactly two weeks ago. Looking back, it seems months ago… months of new experiences, wonderful people, unforgettable moments, magnificent flights. When we have passed the customs, we will have to say goodbye to all our new [...]

The 132 km long building is still an impressive sight today! Then we went on to [...]
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.
