Up, up and away. Yhä ylemmäs

A dreamy atmosphere with people watching two hotair balloons prepare for take-off. Unenomainen tunnelma rannan ruohikolla kahden kuumailmapallon tehdessä lähtöä.


A loud swoosh from the hot air blowers.  Voimakkain ääni oli lämmittimien huokuna.

Off we go! Matkalla!
Bye then. Heippa.
The weather cooled from very warm to very cold overnight. A few days ago I watched two hot air balloons prepare for take-off with hundreds of other picnickers and dog walkers. This is "my" Helsinki in one of its best moments: relaxed, friendly, slightly off-beat.

I thought of my flight in Cappadoccia a few years ago. It remains one of the highlight moments in my life. I would do it again any time.

Sää kylmeni parikymmentä astetta yhtä nopeasti kuin se oli lämmennyt, mutta vielä pari iltaa sitten Kaivarin merenrantanurmikolla seurattiin kahden kuumailmapallon matkavalmisteluja. Tuokio oli "minun" Helsinkini parhaita: rento, improvisoitu, mukava.

Oma Kappadokkian-lentoni muistui mieleen tätä katsellessani. Ottaisin heti uusiksi vaikka maisemat olisivat toiset.

Jael,
Suomen sää on ailahtelevainen ja ilmastonmuutos tekee siitä entistä vaihtelevamman. Ota sekä villaista että kevyttä mukaan niin pärjäät. Kiva taas tavata!
