For our third time already, we travelled to the Majova Fiesta balloon meeting at Slapy on the Vltava river, just south of Prague, in Czech Republic. Weather was nice, and so we could fly three times, with funny and challenging competition tasks, and a lot of friends involved. Surely not our last time there! :-) [...]
The 2023 summer season is slowly coming into swing and the balloon festival at Krefeld last weekend marked the start! Easter Sunday morning, we had a fantastic flight in a north-westerly direction… but see for yourself! ;-) Sunday evening offered another chance to enjoy some awesome views, with a night glow on Saturday completing the [...]
Our second big adventure of 2023 led us to Lapland! Together with my good friend Tommie from Friesland, I was lucky enough to join Edcar’s team from Hot-R Ballonvaarten for a fantastic journey across the Arctic Circle.

Last weekend, it was time to get out our little Raven Aurora balloon again for a beautiful winter flight! One hour twenty minutes fly-in to our homebase, walking home, retrieving the balloon with our second car and a quickly borrowed trailer, and then fetching back the first car. Great fun! =) [...]

What an awesome winter flight over Stuttgart! We had had three attempts on this with the Ballonsportgruppe Stuttgart e.V., but on the fourth advent weekend we finally were lucky and enjoyed the magnificent views over the capital of Baden-Wurttemberg. But see for yourself! :-) [...]
Best way to start a new week! Yesterday, we enjoyed a wonderful gasballoon flight from Stuttgart to Krumbach, with over 8 hours in the air and beautiful views of the city of Ulm, the majestic Alps in the distance, and of course the magical winter landscape. What a treat! :-) [...]
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.
