My first balloon flight

Wednesday June 29 

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

How silent can it be..No sound of the wind..Nothing. What a view. So strange Only  the sound of barking dogs.

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)

    HI there Sweeti, at last you did it, and WOW… what a great experience to be up there. flying so quietly, with only the flame making a noise now and again as they changed height., (I heard some pass by high in the clouds when I used to take Bess to the local Woods and Meadows). ….It was fantastic just watching, so flying in one of them must have been amazing feeling. Good job there were no cow pats to spoil the end of the ride. 😀 …
    My thoughts are still with you and yours my lovely friend, I hope there’s some good news soon. have a wonderful week… xPenx

    • chicasl10 says:

      Tx a lot Pen >
      Its indeed fantastic Flying over the land only with the sound of the flames.
      and champy at the end lol
      My sis her husband is still in IC and very serious..The life threatening situation is still there.
      we wait…we can only be there…and pray.
      tx a lot Pen.

    Wow Sweeti you did it…
    Well you won’t be forgetting that ride
    for a very long time my great friend…
    Looking at your pictures, was it an all
    girlie affair? Well I know that I am a tad
    cheeky asking but Vamps usually are
    a bit on the nosey side… lol I also like
    the idea of the Champagne afterwards
    and girl, you certainly deserved a glass
    or three, well done Sweeti

    Androgoth XXx

    • chicasl10 says:

  8. Androgoth says:

    How about a Bungeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee jump too,
    but do wear something for that as Naked Bungee is
    too distracting for us Vamps, especially when a nice
    Lady is leaping off a bridge or something… lol

    In other words… Be Good or Else? lol

    Androgoth XXx

    • chicasl10 says:

    Hot air balloon rides should be on just about everyone’s must do list or as it has become popular to say, their “Bucket List”. There is something magical about how they rise up into the sky and drift with the wind. I am hoping to take my family on a ride/tour over the city and soon.

    Welcome home Chicas!!! 🙂

    Saturday here is a bit changeable – first a morning of heavy rain and then sunshine, but now it has clouded over again.

    Seems we’re having a typical English summer!!! 🙂

    As a victim of Police and media persecution I for one am glad the News of the World is dead and the Murdochs are being humbled – having suffered seven long years of insanity because of it and am now regarded as clinically insane, I will lose no sleep over their fate…

    Glad to have you back posting my love!

    God Bless!
