Puddles Is Looking For His Valentine…

  • On February 13, 2015

Puddles the Penguin is in Italy on the most romantic weekend of the year looking for his Valentine!

Flying in the 2015 San Valentino Balloon Fiesta in the Aosta Valley, Puddles took off from the tiny Piazza Chanoux in the shadows of Mont Blanc and flew over the alps and stunning snowy landscape for over two hours.

St Valentine’s Day is a major date in the Italian calendar and the Aosta Valley Balloon Fiesta certainly captures this. Couples, who have won a flight as a prize, will fly throughout the event enjoying a romantic and unique experience of seeing the snow capped Italian Alps from the sky.

After hours of flying, the wind took Puddles back towards the Piazza where the balloons had launched from. With no room for error, British National Champion Andrew Holly landed Puddles in the corner of the small Piazza much to the enjoyment of the crowds watching and was also captured on CCTV!

Up to 20 hot air balloons will fly every morning and afternoon until Sunday and we will have to wait and see whether Puddles can find his Valentine in Italy!?
