I have not been in a hot air balloon -they scare me.
I always wonder how they come down even though I know they are controlled.
What if the wind blows them off course -no, have not, and have no wish to do so either.
My daughter took me for a birthday gift. I'd wanted to do it for years and years. It was fabulous. The down side: It was squishy with a LOT of people squeezed in and we couldn't go over the city due to legal restrictions and it took a long time cos we had to watch or help with the whole set up,blow up, collapse and pack away etc The up side: It was so peaceful and beautiful and I didn't want to come down. It is one of the highlights of my life.
