Belinda and her friend Ebony had a dawn balloon flight with Global Ballooning on the weekend. Unfortunately I didn’t get to go in one, but I hitched a ride with one of the chase vans. Its quite an amazing sight when these balloons are inflated and we were blessed with a magnificent sunrise and clear, low wind day, allowing the flight to go ahead. After the balloons were sent up into the air it was a matter of trying to beat them to their landing spot, which you really don’t know until they are nearly there. Obviously there is no way to steer them and you have a maximum of 2.5 hours flight time until the gas runs out. I also learnt lots of interesting facts along the way about ballooning and also had been deceived by how fast they move when they come into land. A big thanks to the Global Ballooning crew as they were a delight to hang around with that morning and the experience comes highly recommended. For bookings go to
