Today I joined the WWF balloon team for a static show and some tethering during the ‘Alles Kids’ children festival in Emmen, the Netherlands. It was shown once again how unpredictable the thermal activity is during the day. Nevertheless we managed to welcome some children and their parents on board. A sweet little Thai boy proclaimed he wanted “to lift off to other planets” while some at first sight cool kids were a little frightened by the massive force of the burner. A warm, sunny day it was!
