Another wonderful year of ballooning is coming to an end… and if somebody had told us one year ago where it would lead us, we probably wouldn’t have believed it. But here we are, with fascinating memories that will stay with us forever, looking back on so many great new adventures. Filzmoos, Lapland, Slapy, Chambley, [...]
For our own After Fiesta Hangover Layover, Cheri Edwards White was kind enough to get us in touch with Bill Lee for the Red Rock balloon flight in Gallup – on their way home from the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, several teams meet there every year to fly together over Red Rock Park. We just [...]
After our return from the Coupe Aéronautique Gordon Bennett, we enjoyed the last days of the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta… and we just arrived on time for the Special Shape Rodeo! On our last day, we were lucky enough to hitch a ride with Cameron Wall in his beautiful balloon “Grandma’s Legacy”! Due to the [...]
Our adventure of the year, if not our lifetime: The 66th Gordon Bennett Race in Albuquerque, USA. We were a bit uncertain about our 2024 participation while the event was to be hosted in Switzerland, because we had had such a beautiful flight from there the year before, but when we learnt that the race [...]
First part of our adventure at this year’s Coupe Aéronautique Gordon Bennett: Road trip from Las Vegas to the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta! Awesome time on Route 66 via Seligman, the Grand Canyon, Antelope Canyon, the Horseshoe Bend and the fantastic Arizona landscape. [...]
After we had participated in the Ballontage Toggenburg back in 2019, we were quite sure that we wanted to do that again! We had to wait a bit for our chance, but four years later, we finally made our way to Ebnat-Kappel, Switzerland again =) The event kicked off on Thursday, but the weather was [...]
After a pause of five years, we finally returned to the Grote Markt in Sint-Niklaas in Belgium for their annual celebration of peace – and oh what a weekend that was! =) On Friday, the evening flight had to be cancelled due to some rain showers, but the nightglow and all other flights could take [...]
Last weekend we spent at Weilburg, a lovely little town in a horseshoe bend of the river Lahn north-west of Frankfurt, Germany. The annual church anniversary celebrations had been the setting for a balloon meeting in 2019 already, and since then, we were waiting to come back! With a perfect organisation of the Balloon Sports [...]
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.
