 Rode a hot air balloon in the Africa and then again in Taos, NM

From our ballooning toast in Taos, NM: "The winds have welcomed you with softness. The sun has blessed you with its warm hands. You have flown so high and so well, that God has joined you in your laughter, and set you gently back again into the loving arms of Mother Earth."

My husband and I took a hot air balloon ride in Napa, CA. The view was amazing! It was by far, one of the best things I've ever done.

 I was very fortunate to be able to ride in a tethered hot air balloon. It was warmer and louder than I expected.

 To get up early, to see the sunrise and to float up and down without an engine noise

This sounds better than it is.  At least that was the case for me.  Clay surprised me with this on an anniversary before we had kids and he stilled paid attention to me as his wife at all.  We went out to the Temecula area.  We went early and I was tired.  All I remember was that it was so loud that we could talk or hear each other.  It takes a lot to keep the fire going and the balloon in motion and in control.  As a result, it is not the serene, romantic thing that I think most people expect.

When we were dating, my husband planned this surprise for me. I had no idea what could possibly involve me waking up so early, but seeing the sunrise from the sky was totally worth it!

We took a ride up in a tethered hot air balloon. the wait was very long and a small child (not ours) joined us but the panoramic views of the mountains were amazing! Would like to experience it without the tether for the full effect!

Something I will get to do next year as I've booked it as a secret 30th birthday present for my boyfriend!


For someone that dislikes heights I loved this! It's so peaceful to watch everything floating in the air!

Word of warning, it can take years to get your flight due to specific weather conditions - he got his present 2 years to the day instead of his 30th!

Do tethered rides count? I hope so, because I'm terrified of heights. This was for my son's Make-A-Wish "summer" in 2005. What fun!!!
