Full of Hot Air!

The model aircraft whizzing around the main arena which was really amazing to watch as it was remote controlled.

So amazingly great - made me so happy to see!
Team G.B Hot Air Balloon - The Olympics was very exciting to watch and to be apart of and all of the Athletes did an amazingly. I hope the success carries on  for the Paralympic Games. I think the success of the Olympics is very inspiring and I hope it the positivity it has drawn on continues.

I think there is such a beauty in Hot Air Balloons and I loved them since childhood with classic films such as the Wizard of Oz. When I see a Hot Air Balloon, it ignites a child-like excitement and shows the beauty of travelling by one of the oldest methods of flight and an interesting fact is that the first modern Hot Air Balloon to be built in the U.K was the Bristol Belle in 1967. Last Thursday I was lucky enough to Bristol to go to the International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta.

It was actually a miracle that I managed to take any photos because in my rush to get to the train station on time, I left my S.D card in my memory card reader which was quite sad when I realised. But, I managed to find a camera card on a stall for a £5. It was a really sunny and beautiful day, perfect for a little picnic on the bank. There were lots of stalls to look around too and a really enjoyable atmosphere. I hope if I go again (maybe next year ;) that I will be able to stay and watch the glow assent of Hot Air Balloons or the mass assent at 6 a.m.

Have you ever seen a Hot Air Balloon or would you like to go on a Hot Air Balloon ride?
