A Time You Observed A Beautiful Sky/ A Time You Looked At The Sky


When was it?

I would like to talk about an enigmatic vacation I had in Europe. Well, my vacay was in the summers, in the month of July. It is also the best time of the year to enjoy a visit to the quaint European cities and landscapes.

Where was it?

I had just landed in Barcelona and I heard about the popular balloon festival. Actually, I had to travel another fifty or sixty kilometres from the main city to the destination where the biggest balloon festival of Europe was being conducted. As it turned out, I was enthralled to reach there on that afternoon when the event was all set and ready to go.

What was the reason to observe it?

The occasion attracts a lot of spectators, especially sky-watchers and tourists, as there is a hot air balloon competition accompanied by recreational exhibitions including a nightglow and fireworks. The lighted balloon flights took place as planned since the weather condition was optimal that evening. The sky glazed with the effects of starlight and appeared as if it was illuminated by heavenly beings. I couldn’t help but gaze up continuously to be enchanted by the pellucid, unclouded skies.

Explain how you felt about it?

Now, most restaurants there have an option where one could dine outdoors in fresh air, under the stars. These eateries are laid out all around the venue. I chose not to go back to the hotel room and found a comfortable seating at a diner to enjoy an Al fresco meal to continue my trip with the glorious air balloons and air glow that lasted until early morning. I was on cloud nine. I continuously stared at the phenomenal sky view with glassy eyes. Truly, there is nothing I can compare to that sight of the night sky to date. I felt indeed blessed to be there at such a picture-perfect moment in time.
