What if we thought a little bit about happiness … What if we brought you a little moment of happiness? Yes, because after all, ballooning is the perfect opportunity to have fun and be happy!
After each difficult period it is not uncommon to say that we will enjoy life and then… and then finally we do nothing … What if this time you really did it!
Why not finally realize one of your dreams? Certainly not that the world is going any better, that the crises are ending or that the sky is falling. Speaking of heaven... it is precisely about him that we speak to you, it is in heaven that we take you. And right away, without waiting because as the saying goes, what is being done today will no longer be to be done tomorrow… especially if it’s for a real fun party! Because you have to enjoy it now, why wait? And then wait what!
Finally making your balloon flight is to live moments of pleasure, an interesting experience and discover beautiful and peaceful places! The adventure begins as soon as you hit the step of the 4x4. From that moment on, life takes on another flavour: to discover, to listen to learn, to move forward, to discover oneself or to get closer to others and to share one’s happiness. Enjoy and taste the moment, savor the joy of a unique experience with passionate aerosols. Being happy comes daily with family, colleagues, friends or with the loved one. This magic of hot air ballooning that is offered to us completely without comparison with what we could live otherwise or elsewhere.
Happiness is so fleeting, so without delay it is necessary to catch it in flight;-)
Flying is the key to happiness
Make a big decision, choose to be happy by finally realizing your lifelong dream of flying; fly in a hot-air balloon!
Yes, you have to learn to find the key to your happiness in the little things of everyday life. And you can cultivate it, you can decide on it, you just have to take the plunge. We've always been convinced of this, and we've even made it our profession: flying in a hot-air balloon is our little daily joy, and we're so happy to share it with you.
It's great to realize that life is made up of a multitude of small moments that make you happy, and above all to realize that these moments can be experienced with others. After all, our primary aspiration is to experience hot-air ballooning with as many people as possible.
Lighter than air, a hot-air balloon doesn't steer, but rises when the air inside the envelope is heated. It always flies with the wind, i.e. in the direction and at the speed of the wind. ... for an enchanting way of letting go. These little pleasures of everyday life will be yours for a moment. Today, what makes us happy," says your pilot Charles, "is rediscovering the sensations of the first flight with the winter break, it's the child's smile when the balloon inflates, it's a group of girlfriends who immortalize the moment with a thousand photos, it's giving pleasure, feeling connected to others, sharing with our passengers their experience, their sensation, their discovery of the world seen differently around the balloonists' toast just after the balloon lands".
France from the sky
Flying in a balloon means taking a step back, seeing things differently, finally having the opportunity to see things from another point of view, letting yourself be surprised and opening up to the discovery of the world that is sometimes right next door.
France is big and beautiful. And when seen from the sky, its physiognomy changes; from a hot-air balloon, its unusual curves and harmonious lines are revealed. Verdant, undulating, rough at times but always generous, France is rich and whimsical, its many contrasting faces astonishing. As if in a dream, the gondola unfurls the colorful mosaic of its fields, spiked with bell towers, populated by slate-gray or brick-red roofs, scratched here and there by streams, rivers and creeks, shaped into hollows and humps by the variety of its reliefs that time has fashioned. Nature remains wild despite the human presence that marks it and shapes it according to its needs. Flying also means rediscovering familiar landscapes on an unprecedented journey between peaks and rivers, from plains to hedgerows, towards town or country. The hot-air balloon takes us on a fascinating adventure to discover our terroirs. It invites us all to take a stroll on the wind. It's a moment of total freedom, a bubble of tranquillity.
Taking the time
"I don't have time" is the number 1 excuse: work, family, connected life...everything in our daily lives is time-consuming, everything is rushing around, whereas our primary desire is to finally have some time! Despite all our good will and decisions to enjoy life to the full, we rush into action without even taking the time to think about whether the action is right for us or even useful!
Living at the pace of a hot-air balloon means finally taking the time. Time to enjoy the little pleasures of everyday life, and even more so in the great outdoors. This shared time gives us the chance to slow down, to savor and take the time to experience things; to breathe in the scent of fields and stone, to listen to the life below the basket ringing in our ears, to watch the sunlight play in the trees or clouds... and to feel quite simply happy to be here.
Every season is an opportunity to enjoy, every time of year a new possibility. For example, when the trees bud every spring, there's something consoling and regenerating about nature. This cyclical aspect, this idea that in life everything can change, be reborn... then this flight becomes magical. It's a time spent together, a time shared, good memories with a wonderful team, passionate about discovering a rare profession.
Feel Feel Share
The benefits of a hot-air balloon flight are manifold: it's a way of giving yourself permission to be human, to find your rightful place in the immensity of the world. And it becomes all the more essential to cultivate the bond with others in order to participate in the well-being of family, friends or a group. Rediscovering the sensation of our usefulness and our rightful presence is a source of deep satisfaction. The experience of flying in a hot-air balloon lets our senses and feelings blossom, allowing us to feel loved and recognized, and to express the best of ourselves.
Taking advantage of our expertise to share this freedom with you is also about letting your emotions flow, recognizing the power of nature. There are treasures of happiness everywhere, and especially here, in a moment that is both simple and rare. To get closer to the optimum experience, you need to give free rein to your feelings: get close to the balloon, feel it vibrate and breathe under your fingers, create a close relationship that becomes intimate, discover how the balloon comes to life in the pilot's hands. These moments of quality and exception experienced with those we love are the most enduring fuel of all. It's so easy, so obvious, to leave your daily routine behind, to concentrate and immerse yourself in this adventure.
Our advice: don't try to optimize, but rather to take full advantage, one thing at a time, because it would be such a shame to miss out. A "little happiness" is like a stolen moment: you realize it's magical and you want to say a big thank you. "Thank you. A simple little word, easy to pronounce. And yet, it's used less and less! And yet, knowing how to show gratitude is essential for a more fulfilled life, for ourselves and for those around us. How about relearning how to say thank you? There are so many opportunities to do so, to a friend, colleague or family member, to mark an event, simply to please, or to share your experience. It takes so little time and is so satisfying.
In short, if you're still wondering why you should take a hot-air balloon flight or offer one, keep in mind that happiness is a moment of letting go, and hot-air ballooning is one of the best ways to achieve it. Because ballooning is synonymous with freedom, with nature, with breathing, with slowing down, with admiring the scenery beneath the basket, with sharing, with experiencing the pioneering spirit ... for those who have kept their childlike spirit or wish to rediscover it.
What could be more exciting and surprising? So we want to say it here: thank you for sharing our happiness, our passion, thank you for allowing us to make it our business, thank you for your little words, thank you for your photos, thank you for being there with us. THANK YOU.
