In spite of the serious family health situations I was looking forward to this Air balloon flight. First date was weeks ago but the weather is always a killjoy.
The airballoon was supposed to go up at the same place where i had the glider flight 2 years back.But there was a miscommunication. So we had to search for another safe place. A meadow just mowed . As we had to help with everything and watched our watch Time was short. The owner of that meadow came ( tamtam goes fast here) and our pilots had to negotiate A whole lot of bla bla and finally for a beer ( 24 ) he allowed us to use his property.
The pilots said its normal he acts like this cos we trespass his property.
Then after putting some cold air inside the balloon
And up we went
A lot of OOhh and AHHH during the one hr trip. We had to land cos after sunset, there is one half hr to stay in the air.. As Ballooning has its own rules …. we had to land. The pilot was searching for a piece of land withouw cows Cos farmers dont like that ( Cows startle and produce bad milk) HIHI
well we found one .. we landed …the basket landed on its side so we fell with our face right into the grass ( Lucky us there was no cow Shit ) Another Big suprise…COWS from another meadow came to see what the wierd thingwas there on our property..lol.and pffffffffffffff Mr.Owner was there to..But he was a friendly guy .
so we had to help to fold up the balloon and basket back in the truck
as we dont have a lot of muscles we had to use our brain ( Dont laugh u hear!!)
And THEN Champagne ..Thats the Tradition.. and a diploma. lol
Tx to the guys we had a wonderful evening a fantastic experience.
And my Boss ( he pays the bill) and made this happen for my colleague Ria and her close colleagues. (Including me hihi)
