Our Balloon Adventure.

Recently I was fortunate to be given a gift voucher for a balloon flight. So off we went!!

Enjoy the ride with us.................

The inside view.
Almost away.
Yes, we are UP now.
Guess who.
Amazing views.

It's all over!!

It was a wonderful experience.

Aoraki Balloon Safaris flying out of Methven, Canterbury, New Zealand, gave us a great ride.

Thank you very much.

I live in UK, but for unfathomable reasons, find myself drawn to NZR trains, especially the oddball stuff like this. I blame Marcus Lush for this.

Generally no. There are some working models available in NZ at other scales, HO and 9mm I think.
