This year, I (Rob) turned 30 and I was lucky enough to receive some lovely presents. One of them was a hot air balloon ride over Cambridgeshire.
First thing’s first – we helped setup the balloon.
It was an nice calm afternoon, perfect for some lazy lofting about in the sky. The prevailing wind would normally drift the balloon toward Cambridge itself to see the colleges, but there was very little breeze at all. It was still very relaxing.
The view was great, and it was very interesting seeing historic building from a different vantage.
When we descended we skimmed over the tops of trees, a river and even a church.
After missing our first landing zone we ended up in the middle of a racecourse. And we had to help deflate and pack up the balloon too, which was fun.
All in all it was a lovely afternoon!
