A hot air balloon flight-Ride over Norwich is always a treat it is such an attractive historic city. During the Norman Conquests of 1066 this city was one of the most prosperous and populated in England with over 10,000 residents. Norwich cathedral dominates the skyline construction stared in 1096 with the 300 foot spire added in the late 1400’s. The architecture of the city is a tasteful blend of old and new. The Forum sits comfortably at its centre such an eye-catching building from the air. Our hot air balloon gains height and we are soon at cruising altitude of 3,000 feet enabling us to view this fine city and the Norfolk Broads out to the East. We are now in open countryside and descend to 800 feet we encounter a gentle sea breeze and we change course some 120 degrees to the right. Our track now takes us over the village of Kimberly. Finding somewhere sensible to land is always quite a challenge prior to harvest so on we press. We have Reymerston Golf Club to our front but pass just 200 meters to the south. The wind has now dropped to a very light 5mph. As we approach the village of Southburgh we spot a track and radio to the crew we about to land. We were down 10 minutes to sunset after one hour forty minutes in the air.
A big THANK YOU for dad’s balloon flight last week it was without a doubt well worth the wait. He has not stopped taking about the whole thing for ages. The children are just the same it was a brilliant evening and thank you for being so attentive we would have nohesitation in recommending Breckland Balloons. XXX
