A five-part series by Annette and Klaus Scheurich (5x52 min)
3rd episode (52 min), Servus TV, 2013
Our balloon trip to Sri Lanka takes us on a journey through a beautiful country in the Indian Ocean. Rich cultures, ancient temples, exotic landscapes, old steam locomotives and tea plantations are part of the adventures. It is awe-inspiring, when the balloons rise above the canopy in the early morning mists and float over the treetops and past brilliant white temples on gigantic rocks. Landing however is difficult in a country, which seems to consists only of jungle, lakes and and rice-paddies. But wherever the balloons attempt to reach dry ground, the enthusiasm and hospitality of the local people is overwhelming. A unique adventure, even for the most experienced balloonists.
