My Mother has suggested a Balloon trip for my birthday, (it is a big one!!) which sounds really good!
I have looked at the website under the medical bits and it states no one with Osteoporosis should fly (Which I fully understand in case of a heavy landing!) , I have osteopenia, which is reduced bone density.
Also it says anyone with a serious medical condition shouldn't fly either!
Bumpy landings aside (I am sure by bones are fit to fly) has anyone here been on a balloon trip and has there been anything such as fumes that has affected their asthma or isn't this a problem?
Many thanks in advance!
PS I have been bounced around in small 8 seater planes landing on rough grass, tossed around in converted 30ft fishing trawlers in the South Atlantic without any damage....
