Getting ready for takeoff

I have to say this is a peaceful way to get to see the city.

There is nothing to fear, it is relaxing. A little noisy sometimes when they pump in some hot air but on a day like I had it is great.

Sky View Ballooning!

Nice Pools

I noticed just about everyone seems to have an outdoor pool on our route at least!

While we were sailing along the pilot told us some interesting information.

Your destination is completly determined by the direction of the wind. While we had a great tour, it is possible you can get up in the air and not go anywhere if there is no wind.

Or you could end up directly over the city. It sounds like they have lots of interesting experiences, but just go with it and you will have a great time.

Nice landing

You should be warned when you land you will be turning upside down on your head.

There is nothing to it however, its lots of fun and they give you a briefing on what to hang on to, so not to worry about falling out and getting crushed.
