I'd like to think I was born with a healthy respect for heights, but there is something intoxicating about the dream of being able to fly. And, barring parachuting from a plane (which I'm sure is quite a rush, but is also over in 25 seconds) or paragliding, I suspect a Hot Air Balloon Ride allows for maximum exposure to the experience of sailing among clouds unobstructed. Then there's my natural gravitation towards things that are multicolored; add one rainbow hued 250lb piece of canvas (known as the envelope), and I'm in heaven. Sure, sure, it 'could' be one of those scenarios where I'm holding onto someone terrified during liftoff, but I'm certain a Hot Air Balloon Flight is one experience I have to check off my Bucket List.
Would you ever consider, or have you taken, a hot air balloon flight?
