Balloons, Balloons, Balloons

Midnight Balloon Meeting:
Ground crew fun- rigging and inflateing up the balloon- driveing after the balloon- deflateing and packing the balloon









Fish from the fishers boat and local wines









Koli on our way

Trip continues to Koli, Finnish Natural National Park. 
I say, it was more than good experience.  Most famous tree and the view in Finland. And in so many finnish paintings.
Our great idea was to stay one night at Koli Berlingo and tent, but on our way started heavy rain and after a while we decided to stay if theres any street motel on the way. And there was.
Short discussion about budget  and then we decided to stay over there- Motel Kontio





Small cottages

Kota free of charge

Trip to Midnight Balloonmeeting, Sotkamo




One trip this summer is to Midnight Balloon Meeting (Vuokatti, Sotkamo, about 480 km from Helsinki). Route nor places to visiting places or overnight places, on the way are not planned.

 #MOObil dearest Berlingo has some new equipment-
Rear ”tent”. I made it from the projector/light net- and magnets.
Its not perfect, because of  far too few magnets. So I need to sew some more, when ever I get more magnets.

And cos theres several MOOs traveling, we have tent next to MOObil.

First night was in Warkaus #Kuntoranta Camping place 
Deasent place, with 27euros you have sauna and spa in the morning.

If you ever visit Varkaus Finland remember to visit ”Mechanical music museum -Life is a big Circus” www.mekaanisenmusiikinmuseo.fi

Northern Finland here we come!

Now its time to explore  northern Finland. Google maps is my navigator, and this time I chose the way via Jyväskylä. 

We had change to start our trip at 3 PM after full day, so no way I could drive many hours(even that this daMOO has all help from the #Berlingo). 

So I had good night sleep at #Jyväskylä, on public beach (#Köhniö)  If you ever travel with van here in Finland, and dont want to use official camping places, in some public beaches has toilets, and of course full bathtub.

About the beach; Toilets were quite ok, little full, but there was paper, changeing rooms for take clothes off and yes you can have your swimsuite on. No-one  was there without clothes. I was quite amazed how many people there was, and just drop in to water and then leave. Like common hobby in Jyväskylä. 

I got little swim too and then happy time with netflix in Berlingo and good night sleep❤️. Perfect I can say.

Hot Air balloons and happy ride


In Lithuenia one stop was Kaunas. 100 #HotAir Balloons Fiesta 100 #OroBallionu Fiesta

We got change to work: Berlingo was good to find right departure and landing places and then I had change to work with getting balloon up and down and packed. Great work and thing to do. I’m in love ❤️.

Once I had a change to get one 1 hour ride, and can you even imagine we landed to field where cows were having their supper 😂. 

Those hot air balloons,  it was like you are not in this world at all, you are in fairytail. From the ground or the sky, happy, beautiful and  soft fairytail. Sounds, air and visual view; you are part of something where you can feel home in the fairytail. MOOism feelings.

And there is cows- in sculpture form. They have had #cowparade there in 2012.
