I always believed for some strange reason that I could fly. It’s amazing that being thousands of feet in the air could be so peaceful. I was taken on a surprise adventure in a hot air balloon for my birthday and it was super awesome! Before going up in the air, I tried to imagine what it would be like, however I wasn’t even close. I kept getting flash scenes from the movie “UP,” but it was shockingly, so relaxing. First off, the balloon was huge! The basket was disturbingly small and crammed 6 of us into a tiny space. Yes, I was flying about the clouds with no parachute, no safety harness, no control and no worries about the outcome. Seriously, the only way to steer it is left up to levels of elevation, wind currents, faith & chance. There are really no words to explain how beautiful things look from a birds eye view. It’s easy to get caught up in life at the level that we normally experience it, but from the sky you can see grand design.
If you’re interested in trying it - these guys were truly awesome!
