Wordless Wednesday: A Birds-Eye View

My Mum and I took to the sky's over the Canberra on a gorgeous summer morning




Telstra Tower, with our shadow!

Parliament House

The National Museum

Questacon

The Carillon


We celebrated our landing (and survival ;)) with the most delicious and decadent champagne breakfast...Bliss!!

Today I'm sharing Wordless Wednesday at My Little Drummer Boys, Sakura Haruka and Tina's pic story. Pop over and see some great Wordless Wednesday posts!

  1. You know, I was climbing Mt. Ainslie during the Canberra Day long weekend and got to see some of the balloons over the lake. I've ALWAYS wanted to do it. You've inspired me !

  4. Wow! That looks beautiful. Definitely on my lists of "to do's"... but I might be going solo as Mr. Mandie is not too happy with heights!

    1. Thanks Becky. It didn't feel scary like I thought it would...just felt like going up in a lift! when the blowers were on it was REALLY noisy and HOT! but when we were just floating it was beautiful, quiet and calm :)
