About Us and Our Website
Firstly, welcome! If you’re reading up about us then you’ve probably got an interest in ballooning or going on a magical balloon flight of your own (or possibly sending someone special for an unforgettable experience suspended beneath the clouds). Regardless of your motivation, it’s good to have you here!
Who are we and why do we do what we do?
We are a small team who love both ballooning and building websites! So who better to take on the task of creating the definitive (and most exhaustive) guide to where you can balloon, anywhere?! And when we mean anywhere, we mean it – our goal is to find all locations on earth. No small feat and not one that’s going to be completed overnight.
Despite being hopeless dreamers and romantics, we are also realists. Balloon operators need all the help they can muster to connect with potential customers, and potential passengers want to know what their options are. We slot in between both parties and try to help. To be included as a balloon operator, a provider must belong to a recognised ballooning association for starters. There is no charge for being listed on this site.
From a passenger perspective: we do what we do to try to help you as volunteers – that means that sometimes we get things spot on and sometime we don’t, so please help us if you find an error or omission by letting us know! It also means that while we are still developing and adding to the site, that some locations haven’t been written yet – if you’d like to get involved and donate some time, energy and insight – get in touch! Many hands make light work!
And it doesn’t matter if you are an operator, passenger or all round enthusiast, please consider liking us on Facebook, tweeting about us or otherwise sharing what we do with anyone that you think might be interested!
Remember, you can tell them to head to www.balloon.to to save time and typing!
Thanks for dropping by – we hope you’ve found our efforts helpful ~:o)
