The Trim Hot Air Ballon Fiesta


I was just too excited and can't wait to tell you about this event that we went to. I know, some of you might read about in my hubby's blog already as he 'always' has the time to update it. Well at the very least, he will find the time to do it. But, I choose to write about this anyway as I think this is the first ever Hot Air Balloon fiesta that was held in Ireland.


It was around a 45-minute drive to the event from where we live. It's such a nice area which is totally different from where we live. The site for the Fiesta is situated in Trim, Co. Meath and is beside Trim Castle. The castle is where the movie Braveheart was shot and beside it was a very big open space with lots of other activities to do.



The weather unrotunately, was not that good. It was really windy and it rained for few times so, they couldn't really fly the Hot Air Balloons. Fortunately, instead of getting in the basket of the Hot Air Balloon, we managed to get inside the balloon itself. Cool isn't it? Hehe...






We missed the all-important face-painting session but there were plenty else to do. So, here's a round-up of what what we did...



The reason why I was on that ride as well! Hehehe...



My Hubby and the kids even got a chance to play mini golf over there. Although, as you can see Husayn was not very good at all in this sport, but he was determined to finish it until the last hole.


After enjoying the fiesta, we had a nice walk to the castle. We didn't get in the Castle itself but maybe next time. We still managed to have a good stroll around the town for a while though.


The weather was getting windy and colder, so after a cup of coffee and sitting on the hay bales (which were surprisingly really comfy) we decided to go home.
