Hotride

I love it when it’s balloon season in Bristol, and I spent most of the International Balloon Fiesta this year with ‘Hotride’ by The Prodigy playing in my head. Balloons are so cool and magical… I hope I get to ride in one someday!

Looking at this I could help but sing ‘Hot Ride’ by The Prodigy


Unspectacular fireworks…

I’ve got to say, I was more than a little disappointed by the Bristol International Balloon Fiesta‘s fireworks display on Saturday night. The drizzle didn’t help, but it was still pretty unspectacular.

It’s possible I’ve been completely spoilt by Japanese fireworks though…


Up, up and away…

The Bristol International Balloon Fiesta has been in full swing today. I just love how the balloons silently float across the sky… Simply beautiful!

Summer nights in Bristol…

Apologies if you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, as you will probably have already seen these images tonight. I was out and about in Bristol this evening and it really was a lovely night to be sitting by the harbour, having a drink after work and watching the world (and balloons!) go by.
