Go up, up and away in a hot air balloon
Ever since the first man laid eyes on a bird, he envied his feathered friend’s ability to fly. We as humans have long sought after the freedom and joy our winged friends are blessed with and hot air ballooning is one of the oldest forms of human flight that finally granted us the same access to the sky. Arguably there can be no better way to take in the landscapes and uninterrupted views of the picturesque countryside than by seemingly floating above it in a bubble. An early morning start is required but it is well worth getting out of a warm bed in the dark once you have gently lifted off the ground and are leisurely floating along with the wind as the sun makes its first appearance. As the sun grows in height, the warm rays of first light spread their arms from horizon to horizon and Mother Nature is revealed in all her magnificent beauty, bathed in the gentle glow of the morning sun. All this while animals go about their business completely oblivious to your presence above them.
