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!

This balloon made me smile…

Silent surprise…

Early on Saturday morning I was walking to the station when suddenly, floating through the sky above me, were all these balloons. I LOVE Bristol’s balloons – they always sneak up on me and take me by surprise! Luckily I had time to get my camera out…

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

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

Up, up and away…

I was just sitting at my desk earlier, talking to my mum on the phone, when I happened to glance out of the window. I immediately reached for my camera, which is never too far away…

There was a hot air balloon, and then another, and another!

I had a clear view from my window and I’m fortunate to have an excellent zoom…

But I still couldn’t resist popping up on the roof for a better look…

I was thrilled to see these balloons floating by my very own window, and to be able to get an even better view from my roof. As I came back in to my flat to upload my photos, I had this song in my head and it’s been there ever since. 😉 I have always wanted to fly in a hot air balloon – it looks so wonderful! Perhaps now I’m here in Bristol I’m a step closer to having a go…

The Bristol International Balloon Fiesta takes place from 8th – 11th August, and I’m really excited about it now after this little taster. I’ll definitely be up on my roof that weekend!
