Travels with Tim and Lisa

Tim goes ballooning, Jan 19 2010

Posted by Lisa Hill on January 19, 2010

Long before dawn Tim had to be up and on his way to Peterson’s Champagne House in Pokolbin for his flight with Balloon Aloft.  Ballooning is always done at the crack of dawn because that’s when the wind is most predictable.

The first task is to unpack and inflate the balloon, a job shared by all the adventurers…

 and then as the dawn breaks it’s up, up and away, just missing the trees!

Only kidding, the pilot knew exactly what he was doing.

Skimming the trees…

and the views over Pokolbin are lovely.

Landed safely!

And it’s time to pack up the balloon and head off for a champagne breakfast!
