as promised we are coming back with the best places to see/to go to in the second half of October!
Though this *Thursday Travel News* is dominated by massive cultural events in Europe, nonetheless it also has something totally unique to offer, like colourful mass ascensions at *Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta*, where hundreds of technicoloured hot-air balloons take to the skies of New Mexico! What a spectacle! And everything started as a small gathering of 13 balloons in 1972 and has grown to become the largest balloon event in the world! This year we celebrate 44th balloon fiesta, which takes place from 3-11 October. DON'T MISS OUT!
Enjoy this week *Thursday Travel News* and let us know if we are missing something out!
