For the fourth time already, we’ve visited the Italian International Balloon Grand Prix, also known as the ‘Sagrantino Cup’, in beautiful Umbria! After two rather small editions 2020 and 2021, 2022 surprised us with almost 90 balloons over the picturesque old town of Todi – what a sight! =) Eight flights in ten days, lots [...]
After the ‘Kieler Woche’ had been cancelled in 2020 and 2021 and only was carried out as a small – but no less beautiful – balloon meeting in September, the original event returned in 2022!

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.
