A #HotAirBalloon ride is a once in a lifetime experience that will stay with you forever. The unpredictable British #weather can often be frustrating - high winds and rain mean we have to cancel flights as the safety of passengers must come first. But when you do get to fly with us, as Adrian from Cambridge explains, it is an extraordinary adventure that is well worth the wait - http://bit.ly/1JwnxBA#AnniversaryGift
We love helping to make dreams come true! The lovely Dessy and Kianoush recently got engaged on one of our flights above Bath. After popping the question, Kianoush then found out Dessy used to dream as a child that she would be proposed to on a hot air balloon flight! We wish them all the happiness in the world. Read their romantic story here. #engaged
