Up at Last

After a year of trying we finally made it up in a Hot Air Balloon on Saturday (13/5/06).

It was fantastic. Up in the sky – without really feeling it. Coasting along on the wind. Take-off was from Melbourne Docklands just on dawn. A hour and a half later we were well and truly over the city and landing in the suburbs. Apparently earlier in the week they had taken off from the same place and in the same time had only made it as far as Collingwood, about one-third of the distance we managed.

Helping to set-up and pack-up was all part of the fun, and it really made you feel that you had earned the hearty breakfast afterwards.

Thank-you Susan and thank-you Global Ballooning
