Tuesday, May 25th, 2010

22nd March 2010 was a day that had to be marked by some ballooning as it was Sarah’s 40th Birthday!!  With the weather in the UK not being predictable at that time of year it meant we had to make it into an overseas balloon trip.  We visited Sunbird Lodge in Kenya which is run by Gunter and Othmar – two Austrian balloonists.
