  9. My story part one

    After all the months of preparation and building excitement the big day had finally arrived. In unison, the balloons all took off into the air, leaving the cheering crowd far below, gasping at the magnificent spectacle.

    A difficult journey lay ahead, and surely not all of the balloons would make it, but they had to try – the prize of £1’000’000 for the first crew to make it around the world was a great incentive.

    Flying in a balloon around the world is an extremely difficult task as flying from London to Leeds is incredibly hard to most people. As soon as the whistle blew the pilots began racing from their bird’s eye view of of the world around them.

    The dazzling balloons seemed like planets swaying above the horizon as the passengers stared at the land below them from their floating basket where they would live for the next four weeks. The people began to quarrel and even fight as they were each against each other and should not be encouraging one another at all.

  10. My story part two

    The competition had now become a fight between all teams. Many balloons had been seen punctured and slowly deflating as well as full attacks like destroying the whole balloon and watching the petrified people fall to the mossy grass beneath them.

    A flurry of wind blew a lucky balloon forwards. Leaves caught on the balloon above them but that would not stop them from being propelled by the flowing winds. They rejoiced at their luck and, until the end, that breeze followed them all the way.

  13. Part two
    It was horribly cloudy at sunrise. The dangerously competitive balloons floated up into the blue. The pilots of the gently hovering balloons were unbelievably frightened of being high above their town, their people and their family. Many of the conducters were ecstatic because they had been accepted for an unbelievable challenge. Most of the citizens were cheering them on.

  14. 17 hot air balloons took part in the race. They would have to keep an eye on there balloon because someone could have the same one. The will win £2896 , second winner will win £289 , last will win £99 . They will hit an up and down obstacle. They will make it halfway round the world 🗺. They would pack two nights before.

  15. The Grand Take Off
    On this miserable day, the gloomy clouds overlooking watch as the impatient crowds cheer and yell. After the beasts of the west’s attack, everyone has been extremely down therefore this must be the only cheerful spirit flying through the air. Upon the starting line, the balloons began to rise as the gas canisters filled the balloons with air and the baskets were tipped upright. Nervous yet ecstatic, the courageous crews prepared for their treacherous journey ahead. With a prize of a £1,000,000 the opportunity couldn’t be turned down. The first crew to reach the other side of the world would claim the winnings. But the question is: how many crews will make it? What a journey this will be!

    Just as the sun hit the sky, the teams took off. Like dancing angels, the balloons gracefully lifted off the sodden ground and up, up they soared and filled the sky with an explosion of colours. Beneath the dropping sun, the balloons sped off heading into the unknown. Under pressure, the crews battled for first place but who would make it, and what dangers will they encounter?

    Three days later…
    Balloon number 106 is approaching an electricity cable and it appears that there is no wind to divert them. The more it edges forward, the more tense the situation becomes. Oh no! The balloon has crashed snapping the wires. The medics have even had to attend this crisis! I hope they don’t get electrocuted too.

    A month later…
    Today the winds are incredibly strong and numbers 05 and 97 have been shoved backwards so much that here at the half way stadium they’re the main view. In the lead, number 102 is blasted by a gush of wind until it reached 52 kilometres more than where it originally was. The rest seemed to be struggling: the winds pushing them backwards instead. Surely nothing can stop 102 now, can it? Spoke too soon! A flock of birds has just flown straight through their path badly puncturing the balloon. Number 102 joins numbers: 106, 07,82,68,59,109,43,105,76,54,98 and 25 who are out of the race so far.

    Three months later …
    There has been some major miracles and major crises. We have managed to come to the end of our rollercoaster adventure and it sure is a close one. With only 3 remaining participants out of 110, we arrived at the verge of New Zealand but only 1 team can win it; who will it be? Number 06 is struggling to land and number 56 is so close to winning, with number 94 on it’s tail. Despite the glory of winning, 56 has shown true friendship and has gone back to push 06 across the finish line together in a photo finish.

    On land, number 56 has been awarded the Trophy of effort and friendship, 94 awarded Trophy of speed. On the podium, it turned out that 06 had won but they decided to split the £1,000,000 with 56 since if it wasn’t for them they would have never crossed that line. Everyone applauded them they had a humongous celebration with plenty of food…
