In his capacity as Vice Director of Gstaad Saanenland Tourism, Michel Matti is responsible for administration and infrastructure. This alone usually keeps him firmly grounded in reality. When he does occasionally go on a hot-air balloon ride, then he really enjoys it.
‘When you are in a hot-air balloon, it is very easy to forget about your daily routine. It is surprising how still it is and how quietly the wind blows the balloon along. Up here you can take a deep breath and look at the world from a completely different perspective.’
