Bristol and Fiesta Balloon Festival / August 2017

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 🙂

Ponta da Piedade / Nature photography

Ponta da Piedade is a group of rocks formations on south Portugal,  near Lagos on the coastline of Algarve.

Consisting of yellow-golden clifflike rocks up to 20 meters high, they are one of the most famous touristic attractions of Portugal. Several grottos in Ponta da Piedade can be visited by boat.

Ogden Waters / Nature of Yorkshire

Ogden Waters is water reservoir and countryside near Halifax and Bradford. We used to go there for long walks and enjoying the nature. It is calm and peaceful place, disturbed only by strong wind gasps or baa-ing sheep 😛

This video bits were recorded in August 2015, but I finally edited them last week.

Please see my memories of Bradford and beauty of nature 🙂

Hope you love relaxation music and nature 🙂

Praia dos Careanos

Praia dos Careanos is the third beach we have visited. It is located on west from Praia da Rocha and Praia dos Tres Castelos in Portimao, Algarve. Rocks there conceal secret caves, chambers and passageways.
