Hot Air Balloon

So I know that going to the Hot Air Balloon Festival in New Mexico is on my 100 but what I failed to mention on that list was is how desperately I want to RIDE in a hot air balloon.

I mean yes, I get excited at the thought of attending the festival and OH THE PICTURES but I want to be a part of the action.

For as long as I can remember, I've been just fascinated by these giants in the sky.

Saw this one on my way to work this morning, pulled over in a parking lot and snapped away. Afterward, my head was in the clouds all morning thinking about a ride and researching how to make it happen.

Do you know they do rides with champagne? SOLD. Who's with me?

Balloon pilots always need a crew...Andrea and I help a guy here in columbus every now and then and we get free rides out of the deal! Just find a pilot in need :-)

You know if there's champagne involved, then I am there :) A balloon ride is on my 100 things list as well. There's a hot air balloon festival every summer near where I live, I've never been but maybe this year is the year! Thanks for the reminder :)

The hot air balloon thing has been an obsession of mine for years. But I want to go somewhere exotic, NOT VEGAS. My best friend and I actually signed up to go on a hot air balloon ride when we were in Costa Rica. We got up at the crack of dawn and then they cancelled the ride last minute because of the weather. I am still bummed.
