On February 15th, we managed an amazing flight over the Alps to Italy with two balloons! :-) Taking off at Bad Feilnbach near Rosenheim, we soon hit the speedy winds in FL170 and enjoyed a magnificent colourful morning sky. We had a terrific view of the Dolomites with the rising sun in our back, while [...]
…with freelance journalist Adelheid Wanninger! The passionate traveller was with us for one of our flights at the Kaiserwinkl Alpin Ballooning and has now published her photos and a nicely written report on her website www.lastsecrets.de. Definitely worth a read! :-) [...]
Last week, we had two fabulous days at the Kaiserwinkl Alpin Ballooning event at Kössen, Austria – this nicely organised balloon meeting is just worth a visit every year! :-) Two wonderful flights – one aboard my own ballon, one alongside it in one of the Ballonsportgruppe Stuttgart e.V. – the famous ‘outdoor evening’ and [...]

For some weeks already, we had the vision in our mind to finish the year with yet another long gas balloon flight… and for the day after Christmas, the weather looked promising for a flight from Stuttgart to Lithuania.
