We visited Bristol mainly because of the annual event – Fiesta Hot Air Balloon Festival, apparently the biggest in Europe.
We were waiting with anticipation for balloons uplift at 6pm, but they did not ascend ! Disappointment !?! Yes, the evening was lovely, weak wind, sun, a bit chilly for summer evening, but still great weather to start. Organizer spread the word on Social Media about no delayed uplift for the evening. So, we spent 3 hours in few thousands crowd of people to watch balloons. None came up ! I mean, only one yellow one 😛
However, the evening glow at 9pm-9.30pm that was magical ! All balloons glowed together with music rhythm. Great experience though ! Unforgettable 🙂

Bristol is also lovely to see. Our Must See here was Clifton Suspension Bridge !
You can have a ride for £1 or walk for free. Nice views on the city, river Avon and some forests guaranteed 🙂
There is also Clifton Bridge Museum nearby worth to visit. Lots of information about Brunel, some draws and pictures from XIX century.
