Despite the fact that I have only just moved to Bristol, I have been to the Bristol Balloon Fiesta a few times (in 2016 and in 2014) with James. This weekend was my third time going and it was every bit as magical as the last two. Although the crowds seem to be growing year on year which does make it slightly harder to enjoy, I would still encourage anyone who hasn’t been to go along. It is slightly surreal but also kind of magical, and I certainly haven’t seen anything like it elsewhere.
I’m very excited about today’s blog post! Partly, because I am (belatedly) getting to write about a wonderful weekend, but also because this is my first blogging collaboration! All illustrations in this post have been provided by a good friend of mine who blogs at Drakes Doodles and we’re hoping this could be the start of more combined posts… so please let us know what you think!
