Carried away in Carterton

Getting carried away for us was rising before 6am on a Friday morning to hook up the caravan and head to Carterton. We were keen to see hot air balloons lift off at 7am as part of the Wairarapa Balloon Festival*. The ballonists got carried away on a beautiful March morning. It’s definitely a sport for early risers, we won’t be taking it up any time soon.
