And because we do, we met last Saturday at Seeg again for yet another long winter flight! Weather was beautiful, winds were strong and so we followed once more the track we already knew: Over Lake Staffelsee, Penzberg and Bad Tölz to the surroundings of Lake Tegernsee, where we decided to land after 3:20 h [...]
Less than a week after our flight from Seeg to Rosenheim, we met at Eglofs (between Wangen and Isny) with some fellow balloonists, and it turned out that we had a similar wind situation as the Saturday before. And again, the race was on! :-) Within three hours and fourty minutes of flight, we made [...]
It is October, and many balloonists are talking about the end of the season. Well, not us, that’s for sure! :-D On Saturday, October 26th, weather was just perfect for a long distance flight along the Alps: Calm on the ground and speedy winds at altitude. So, we met at Seeg (near Füssen) with our [...]
With a nice ‘survivor’s dinner’ and awards ceremony on Friday evening, our fantastic week at Kirchberg finally came to an end. And we only missed the podium by a few points! :-) Back home now, we’re still dreaming about our wonderful flights… and the impressions from this awesome week will surely stay with us forever. [...]
No weather for flying? No problem! There are many other things to do at Kirchberg! :-) So, we did a nice little hiking tour up the Gaisberg, and as you can see on the photos, the views we had were no less magical than the ones we had the days before! Finally, we ended up [...]
Our ninth consecutive flight brought a bit of true adventure! As some kind of special competition, a hare and hounds was called out, and the hounds were allowed to hot inflate right after the hare had taken off. Luckily, we were quick enough and did just that, for right after our takeoff, the wind turned [...]
We’re slowly running out of superlatives to describe our magical flights here! This morning, we got up really early and met at the launch site at 6 o’clock for a sunrise flight. It’s hard to describe the atmospheric morning mood that awaited us at 2000 meters with no poet at hand… ;-) …and even the [...]
Our seventh flight at Kirchberg was no less amazing than the ones before! Expecting winds from south-westerly directions, we took off from Westendorf to do a fly in to Kirchberg again – soon discovering that winds were coming from north-west rather than south-west. They took us right over the Alpenrose, into the mountains… what 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.
