 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."

It was absolutely amazing, so peaceful up in the air and all you could hear were screams of children and barks of dogs. I am so going to do it again! :)

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.

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!

Nice peaceful way of seeing the country side (and crop circles) on a summers evening.

Clay and I went, maybe it was for an anniversary or something, but it was before we had kids.  It's not at all like you see in the movies and is really overrated.  It was loud, as they kept the fire going to keep us up.  It was too loud to talk or really enjoy company.  And it was not super comfortable, small spaces with other guests.  I guess I'm glad I've done it, but wouldn't do it again.

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!!!

I booked a commercial to promote a Bucketlist website (not sure if it is this website or a competing one).  For the commercial, we took a hot Air Balloon Ride.
