Journey by Dawn

Photographed experience of my hot air balloon flight over Trakai, Lithuania

Here is photographed the process of preparing and flying the hot air balloon over Trakai, Lithuania. It was an experience beyond anything I ever had. It was smooth, unlike I expected and an amazing guide. I highly recommend


The balloon before being unpacked!


Arriving well before sunset, the balloons were unpacked and expanded using fans


Hot fire flames continued to expand and lift the balloon to a vertical position


And before our eyes an amazing view of the land began to unfold


Trakai castle in it’s full beauty!


Our neighbouring balloons kept us company


As the sun continued to shine


Crossing highways


And dirt roads


Our pilot looked for the best ‘back yard’ to land on


Finding a beautiful flower field

It was an unforgettable, heart melting experience. I had never seen my homeland from such perspective. I hope you enjoyed seeing it too!

    “Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.” – Leonardo da Vinci is credited for this quote, but how is this possible as the man never had a chance to fly back in his days?

    Now we have the great privilege of flight – an impossible dream for many generations of our ancestors and yet we take it for granted, often choosing the isle seat for a more convienient in-flight service…

    However, after reading this post I am reassured that the old visionary was right. At least for those, who can appreciate it.


    • Dear Valdai… sometimes the vision proves to be true, it is no longer a vision. To experience just once the beauty of the horizons can begin to change our hearts. But it is sad if this vision is short sighted and it ends before it has a chance to begin.
