Day One of Filzmoos Balloon Fiesta

After arriving at Salzburg airport we drove south up into the Alps to the village of Filzmoos and ’signed in’, collected our hot air balloon banner, gassed up and went to the weeks’ briefing in the local centre. Once the administration was complete we had a quick drink and pizza before retreating to our apartment.
