‘Vang Vieng - High in the sky’


Brenda wanted to know if the flight was shaky. It wasn’t at all. It was a very comfortable flight.
The landing wasn’t bumpy either.
Was this due to the experience or dexterity of the pilot or to the ideal weather conditions? I don’t know.

I do remember that at one point the other balloon went very high in the sky and we (the three passengers of our balloon) asked our pilot to do the same. Then he searched for the proper air flow to get higher … but we failed to do so ... Apparently it’s not easy to fly at any desired height.

It may be useful to know that the balloon burner is quite noisy. However, the air in the balloon doesn't need to be heated constantly during the flight.
These were my last photos from my balloon ride.
