Post Hot Air Balloon Adventure
Hot Air Balloon Adventure
by: John McCabe

Begun in the 1700s by several Frenchmen, building and flying hot air balloons has really not changed that much over the years, except that hot air ballooning is safer and more popular than ever! Imagine floating on air, watching the world drift below in all its beauty and wonder, houses and cars looking like toys.

Imagine feeling a lovely breeze in your face, and leaving all of life's problems behind as you spend the most fabulous morning or evening imaginable on a hot air balloon flight.

The wicker basket is comfortable and the experience is glorious. No matter what terrain you fly over, or how many flights you've taken, each experience is a once in a lifetime event. You and nature seem to be one as the world glides beneath you.

Do some research and be prepared when booking a hot air balloon flight. Most launch either at dawn, or just before dusk, due to the winds being at their most favorable at those times of day. Dress comfortably in light layered fabrics, and bring a hat and sunglasses, as well as a light jacket. It can be very warm in the basket, but you will be surprised how much cooler the air is a few thousand feet off the ground! And don't forget your camera, to capture those magical panoramic views.

If you think a hot air balloon ride with your favorite person is simply unattainable, think again. In fact, it's very affordable, and hot air ballooning is becoming more and more prevalent all over the world. There's probably a hot air balloon flight service close to you, just waiting to take you on the ride of your life.

Most hot air balloon flights last anywhere from one to three hours, and you'll be picked up by the "chase crew" who follow the balloon in a vehicle and meet the balloon upon landing to collect the equipment and passengers.

Because nobody is ever absolutely sure where they'll land in a hot air balloon, an adventurous sightseeing trip after the ride is often an added bonus. Most flights are followed by a champagne toast, and you generally receive a certificate that you are now "lighter than air".

If you've never been on a hot air balloon ride, you're in for a treat! Most flights are extremely smooth and gentle, and can even be perfect for people who are not that comfortable with heights. Pilots must be certified, and all equipment is examined and safety-checked thoroughly before passengers are ever taken up. Hot air ballooning is a safe, exciting, and fun activity for the entire family!
