Law Firm Astraea Legal flying high in Norway

Law Firm Astraea Legal flying high in Norway

 The following morning, Rebecca Mackenzie, who had taken part in the quiz noticed that her 3 year old son Cory had removed the balloon from the chair and was enjoying playing with it and would not let go of it.  He went to give his dad a hug goodbye at the front door as he was leaving for work and lost his grip on the balloon and through tears watched it drift skyward.  Rebecca said ‘it took me an hour to console him as he was so upset that his balloon had gone’.

The balloon then began an epic 700 mile, 8 day journey across the North Sea before landing in Fosdalen, a valley next to the Skaala glacier in north west Norway.   Astrid Sandvik, who lives close by in Fosnes in Stryn was out for a Sunday stroll in the valley next to the  glacier on Sunday 15th November, a trip she has done many times before, when she saw ‘something shiny’ coming down from the glacier.  Astrid said “At first I thought it was a drone and thought it was strange as the place is far from people.  The shiny object disappeared out of sight, but a little further up the valley I saw it stuck in a tree, so I went and picked it out of the tree”.

 Astrid said, with a smile,  “It really is amazing!  It does not have much air left in it now, but I am happy to send it back to Corey if he would like it back’.

Nama Zarroug, Founder and Director of Astraea Legal said ‘The whole team is relieved the balloon has been found and can be safely disposed of.    We are also so excited to have been contacted by our new friends in Norway and we can’t thank them enough for getting in touch and to Astrid for letting us know about this amazing journey.’
