#6 Hot air balloon ride

Posted by kiwisa (North Shore, New Zealand) on 19 June 2018 in Sport & Recreation and Portfolio.

Unfortunately we were caught by a gust of wind as we were landing and were dragged 500m across the stony hill. Apart from one lady with a sprained ankle and my mild concussion, we still managed to enjoy a champagne breakfast. Yes, I would do it again.

I'm back posting after a 2 year break. I won't be commenting everyday but will catch up every few days.

I have had acquaintances who always have their own company with several balloons and pilots. That's why I look and love your photos with passion.
Talented artist photographer and more.

That landing must have been "exciting". I like the beauty of the woven basket.

Your photo tempts me to return to make a tour in balloon over Sossusvlei. Thank you for these beautiful memories Frances

Ça c'est terminé comme pour moi..... Seulement j'avais le cubitus fêlé, le radius en morceaux et je suis sortie de cet engin avec une trouille incroyable après être passé au dessus d'une ligne électrique. Pas sérieux ces pilotes. !!!....

Ah, glad to read there were no serious injuries . . but I guess the risk is part of the lure.

It must have been exciting but also somewhat scary !
