Hot air balloons are incredible! Incredible! Did you know this? Why isn’t there someone with a bullhorn informing us at major sporting events?

We arrived before dawn, and it was freezing. I was feeling hesitant about a presumably blustery, cold trip.

If you’re even slightly considering riding in a hot air balloon, you must start saving up, looking up the place, putting the plan in action. It is one of the best things I’ve ever done.

The biggest surprise was that it was so peaceful – still and quiet — because you’re traveling with the wind, not through it.

It was like being in a boat on a glassy water, you can see the balloon shadow below as you skim over everything.

Add this to your list immediately. You must try it. Someone get me a bullhorn.
