When you’re into ballooning, sooner or later you’ll end up in Albuquerque, they say. For me, it took a while, but thanks to Siebel Ballooning and Holzwerk Ballonteam, this year the dream finally came true! Altogether, we spent eleven days in Albuquerque, living through almost every form of weather there is: Beautiful sunshine, pouring rain, [...]
Oh what a fabulous adventure that was! =) Our 3rd participation in the famous Gordon Bennett Race, our second longest and second farthest gas balloon journey, and all that in one flight! We couldn’t be happier. Altogether, we covered a distance of 1258 kilometers in 50 hours and 15 minutes – two nights and two [...]
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 [...]

On our long way to Kiel, we spent a night at Osnabrück, where our good friend Jacy had organised a nice get-together with some other ballooning friends from the area… and we indeed had a great evening in the skies around Lienen! =) Thank you Jacy, Jan, Frank, Himke & Dominik! ;-) [...]
The Easter weekend we spent in the Netherlands with our good friend Tommie Witteveen who had promised us some highspeed ballooning! =) And the promise was kept: Our fastest landing was with 16 knots! In the Netherlands, you truly learn how to fly. Altogether, we did 7 out of 8 possible flights, visited the Pashaasjagt [...]
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.
