The "Hamilton" hot air balloon

April is the time when you can see hundreds of hot air balloons raising into the blue sky. One day I got the opportunity of experiencing the great atmosphere amongst all those hot air balloon pilots and fans in Hamilton.

It was a totally new and pretty welcome experience! Of course, I had seen a hot air balloon before but watching heaps of them raising at the same time early in the morning, when the grass was still wet and the air quite cold, was an amazing impression.

Besides I was able to form my own impression of every step, which belongs to such an awesome trip in a hot air balloon.

It would be great to fly up high in a hot air balloon by myself sometime because the atmosphere and the view must be incredible! That’s for sure!

You should also try the Bristol Hot Air Balloon Festival, http://www.worldeventsguide.com/event/571/Bristol-United-Kingdom/Bristol-International-Balloon-Festival.html

Bristol is worth a visit in its own right too!
