Mother’s Day is on the horizon, and the shops will soon begin to fill with displays of flowers and chocolates.
Traditionally known as Mothering Sunday in the UK and falling on the fourth Sunday in Lent, we’ve been celebrating mums on this special day for centuries. Its roots lie in the Christian church and many people still attend a service, where children distribute posies of spring flowers to mothers in the congregation. A marzipan topped simnel cake is often baked and decorated with 11 balls of marzipan, representing the apostles of Jesus (minus Judas, the betrayer).
Now, whilst we all love tradition, flowers and chocolates, your mum is a very important lady and she deserves an extra special gift. Wouldn’t it be nice to surprise her with something different this year? How about treating her to a spectacular Mother’s Day hot air balloon ride over a glorious landscape? Aerosaurus is the biggest balloon operator in the West Country and when it comes to amazing experiences, we specialise in the special! A trip in one of our beautiful balloons over picture postcard scenery, from Wiltshire and Dorset in the east to Devon and Cornwall in the west, will ensure your mum enjoys a unique and wonderful Mother’s Day gift she will never forget.
It’s hard work being a mum and there’s not much opportunity to relax, so what more perfect way for her to unwind than drifting gently above breathtaking countryside, watching the sunset whilst sipping a glass of chilled champagne? If your mum is an early riser, nothing can beat the exhilaration of floating in the early morning stillness, as the sun rises on a new day. We can sail along just above the treetops, giving you a real bird’s eye view of nature at its best, then steadily rise towards the clouds, letting the landscape ebb away to leave a miniature world below.
Hot air ballooning is a really calm, safe way to travel, and as one of the UK’s leading balloon flight operators with 25 years experience flying over Devon, Wiltshire, Cornwall, Somerset and Dorset, you can feel confident that Aerosaurus will take good care of all your flight arrangements and deliver a truly memorable Mother’s Day experience. If you are unsure about dates, we can offer the ultimate flexibility of our anytime Gift Vouchers, which can be exchanged for a balloon trip on any of our scheduled flight dates at any of our flight meeting locations and are valid for 12 months. You can start to build the excitement by presenting the voucher in one of our delightful Balloon In A Box presentations.
So, make 2015 the Mother’s Day she will always remember and take to the skies with Aerosaurus!
