This experience far exceeded both my expectations and my first balloon ride experience. I've always wanted to go on a hot air balloon ride actually I think I wanted my proposal to be on one, but my fiancé had other plan, but alas I still got to experience my first hot air balloon ride with him. I don’t know which came first, the movie “Up” or my dream to soar among the clouds in a hot air balloon. A hot air balloon ride is a special experience, and it's important to select a pilot that will help you get the most out of your flight we were lucky we go Bill himself!
Our pilot, Bill, maneuvered the balloon right over the landscapes, up high and then down low again. There were times I felt as if I could reach out and touch the ground below, and others when my stomach did a flip seeing how high we’d risen. The ride was anything but boring.The sensation of floating in a sea of colorful balloons as the sun rose in the sky was unlike anything I’ve ever experienced. I noticed halfway through the flight that my cheeks hurt from smiling the entire time, but even that didn’t wipe the grin off my face.
After everyone was on solid ground, we popped a couple bottles of champagne and we had a celebratory toast while gushing about how amazing the past hour had been. Everyone was all smiles. How could you not be after a morning like we'd just experienced?! We enjoyed a scrumptious breakfast after our flight.
