Up, up and away!

We finally did it! We went hot air ballooning!


We flew with Skyward Balloons, and I would wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone wanting to go hot air ballooning in the area.


One thing I found surprising was just how smooth the whole ride was. From take off to (and including) the landing.

P.S. Thanks, mom and dad!

You are welcome. I hope we will see more pictures from the whole event when you come over.

WOW! That is awesome! I intended to take my hubby on a hot air balloon last year for his 40th but I am still working up the nerve to go. I am scared of heights, but this is something that I would like to try - some day!

The photos are great!

Cheers,
Tricia

Do it! I get dizzy standing on a chair, so I was a little uneasy about it the night before.
One nice thing about the hot air balloon was that they are only allowed to ascend/descend at (I think) 200 feet per minute so the climb was relatively slow. I guess when you have a bit of time to adjust, it does not seem like a big deal at all. I used to fly small planes - somehow the hot air balloon felt safer!

Mirka, toto vyzera fantasticky! Je to skvely napad! Ja sa bojim vysok, a aby som to prekonala, tak som pozvala mojho draheho manzela na buduci rok na nase okruhle vyrocie sobasa na skok padakom. Ja viem, klin sa klinom vyraza. Toto vyzera ako jemnejsia alternativa. Mozno to zoberieme ako predpripravu, ha ha. Lucia
