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!

Next stop: HOME :-) After the balloon meetings at Tannheim and Kaiserwinkel have been officially cancelled, we’re enjoying flying at home with many many friends – and FOUR special shapes today! Thank you Kubicek Balloons Deutschland for hosting this spontaneous gathering ;-) [...]
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.
