On the first weekend of February, we took part in the Tegernseer Tal Montgolfiade! Unfortunately, the great winter weather we enjoyed the week before didn’t quite last, but nevertheless we made a nice three hour flight from Bad Wiessee over Lake Starnberg right up to Weilheim, even scoring third place in the hare and hounds [...]
In the last week of January, we teamed up with some friends from Stuttgart to visit the “Kaiserwinkl Alpin Ballooning” at Kössen/Walchsee in Austria – and the weather couldn’t have been better! Two nice hops along the valley and two spectacular flights from Westendorf over the “Wilder Kaiser” out into the “Chiemgau” left nothing to [...]
On January 6th, we did our first flight of the year… and it turned out to be one of the most beautiful alpine crossings ever. Wonderful weather, friendly ATC controllers and really nice passengers just made it a pertect day! :-) Be sure to book your own on www.bavaria-ballon.de ;-) [...]
2016 has been unbelievable :) Almost 100 flights, over 170 hours in the air… simply amazing! :D My heartfelt thanks to all who flew with me, crewed for me, captured these wonderful moments in pictures or otherwise contributed to this great passion of ballooning. You made this year an incredible adventure! Have a wonderful 2017 [...]
Every year around the 1st of November, the organisers of the “Eglofser Feuerzauber” hold a nice little meeting for their ballooning friends, and after having two rather bad years (concerning the weather at least), in 2014 everything was just perfect! :-) We even had guitar music on board during one of our long flights, and [...]
What an awesome week! :-) Eleven flights, over 17 hours in the air… Kirchberg in Tirol (Austria) really is one of our favourite places to fly. And despite all the flying, we still had the time to go party, chill out, go swimming, hiking, chat with friends… a truly amazing balloon meeting! The competition flights [...]
It truly is a special feeling to take of with your own balloon from the ‘Grote Markt’ in Sint-Niklaas. And after coming here for eight times with our model balloons, this year we finally mastered the upgrade! ;-) Although the weather was anything but stable, we could fly four out of five slots, making the [...]
Another dream is about to come true: After eight years with the Pingu model balloon, it’s our first time at the Vredefeesten with our D-OSBK! :-) You can follow the activities on the ‘Grote Markt’ via the webcam of Sint-Niklaas: http://webcam.sint-niklaas.be [...]
In the last days of August, we spent a wonderful long weekend at the airfield Landshut-Ellermühle with our friends from Slovenia – luckily, we started our weekend on Wednesday already, as on the weekend itself, only one flight was possible. So, we could do four flights altogether and still had enough time to sing around [...]
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.
