The Libro Balloon Cup at Kirchberg / Austria has just begun – and we’re lucky enough to be there! :-) The weather forecast is very promising… so we should have some beautiful alpine indian summer balloon flights during the next days! Our first flight this evening led us from the town of Kirchberg to… well, [...]
Now that we’re back from Belgium and have seen through lots and lots of photos, here’s the bunch of the best! Again, we had so much fun showing our model balloons, helping at the gas balloon preparations, watching the hot air balloon mass ascent… and of course at all the evening programmes like the Vredefeesten [...]
Just as the years before, we are pleased to take part in the Vredefeesten in Sint-Niklaas in Belgium with our model balloons! For three days, balloons of all shapes and sizes will fill Belgium’s biggest market place – and you can watch the spectacle through the webcam of the town hall of Sint-Niklaas: http://webcam.sint-niklaas.be [...]
… was great fun again! A wonderful weekend with old and new friends, a nice night glow, a beautiful morning flight, model ballooning, a sporty supporting programme AND spectacular parties! The Balloon Club of Landshut celebrated their 30th birthday with a big roasted pig and Bavarian music, and the balloonists celebrated on the camp site [...]
The balloon meeting at Bad Griesbach (near Passau) is one of our favourites every summer – and it was just beautiful once more! From Friday morning on, we could do three flights and two night glows, until the weather was merciful enough to let us sleep in on Sunday. What a great weekend! =) [...]
It was in 1993 on this very day, the 14th of August, when I fulfilled myself my biggest dream to date: My first flight in a balloon. Coming from a family without any background in ballooning, things hadn’t been too easy for me, and I had put aside the money for the flight all by [...]
After the beautiful flight on Thursday evening, the wind speed increased again, forcing the LMAB organisation to cancel all flights on Friday morning, Friday evening and Saturday morning. So finally, we found the time to have a great party with our nice campsite neighbours from Slovenia… with a magnificent sunset, lots of beer, delicious snacks [...]
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.
