Today I took my first ballon trip, I was a bit apprehensive and worried due to a slight fear of heights I have. The meet up point was very convenient with access to a port a potty prior to climbing into the van that brings you to the balloon launch site, the van driver(ugh can't remember his name) has an amazing live love life, play and be happy attitude which sets the tone for the whole experience. It was interesting to watch the crew set up and inflate the balloon, it was like watching a well orchestrated band with the owner/pilot Lou the conductor. The lift was heart thumping but once I was high in the sky I was able to get over my fears and enjoy the beautiful serene landscape. I spotted a few rabbits, lizards and small desert rodents. We were at the mercy of Mother Nature and she had her own plans for us in the manner of the wind, Lou our trusty captain was able to sail us to a soft sandy bank to land after a few attempts. I always felt safe. I had an amazing time and didn't mind spending the extra cash on an activity that was truly a once in a lifetime experience.
