"Whatever you do, wherever you do it - do it with all your heart!" 

Eskil Rønningsbakken

Most of my balancing acts are results of long time planning and sometimes a year and a half of consequent training. People keep asking me why I do it and why I don’t give up. First of all, giving up is not an option in my world. Secondly, when I know something is possible according to previous experiences and skills, I don’t see any reason to give up just because others like me to do so. It’s talk about making a promise and keeping it until you reach your goals!

About the balloon stunt

It took me almost two years, from when I first got the idea until I ended up with the pictures you see in front of you. I first had to learn a lot about balloons, which took me several journeys from Norway to UK and Switzerland, to meet professional pilots + weeks in front of my computer researching balloons and their functionalities. After all this I prepared myself physically and mentally for half a year, test flew in Switzerland and Norway the next year, before I finally ended up with a crew and weather stable enough to handle my dream.

It was possible and gave the team wings to fly way more than just the minutes in the balloon!
