Hot Air Balloon flight

In 2010 I won a hot air balloon flight and finally it took place on Friday.   I went with my neighbour, Julie, down to the take-off area which was at Alton, Hampshire.   We met the pilot, Chris and Grant, who was the ground crew and prepared the balloon for take off.

The take-off went smoothly and we were soon flying over the fields of Surrey.
We missed the lake and trees before we made our landing on Hankley Common.
Getting back to the take-off site was a bit of an adventure but we made it in the end.
