Would you dare?

Thursday, August 9, 2012
Oh boy, would you dare trying air ballooning? A few years back, Celine and Jin decided to treat themselves to a hot air balloon ride for their anniversary.  Sweet, isn’t it? Their flight took off at dawn which in Celine’s opinion was the perfect time of the day. It was beautifully peaceful and relaxed. They spotted a few barking dogs that looked like tiny little ants from above and admired the breathtaking views of the area. After they landed they were greeted with a glass of champagne which  is an old air ballooning Parisian tradition. Ha, dreamy! xo

P.S. And here is more hot air balloon fun in Turkey.
P.P.S: Plus, 500 balloons in Montreal and this beauty.

Oh I'm too much of a scaredy cat, runs in the family. Though my brother surprised me a couple of weeks ago, and parachuted out of a plane.

I agree with Sage! It would be awesome but freaky at the same time! Probably like when I went with Shawn for his first flight lesson. OY!

it's my dream to go up in a balloon. (as long as there is someone with me who knows what they are doing)

Jess said...

I would love to do this some day with kids as a family. I think it would be a really neat experience! I don't like heights, but for some reason flying in aircrafts doesn't bother me!!! As long as my feet think they are on the ground, it's all good!

C'est La Vie said...

i read your blog daily but i had to comment on this one! i've always dreamed of riding a hot air balloon. when i lived in cal they had free rides every weekend during the summer and I NEVER WENT! why???????

Diana Mieczan said...

Sage, I love what you said:)

Diana Mieczan said...

HiLLjO, your new photo is AMAZING! Btw: flight lesson? That is pretty awesome.

Diana Mieczan said...

Giggle, Amy and Lyddie, that is a very good point.

Diana Mieczan said...

Jess, that would be the coolest family adventure for sure! I love that. Btw: Same here, I am not too bothered with flying in aircrafts but sometimes when they are small like those between Denver and Cheyenne, I get really nerves.

Diana Mieczan said...

C'est La Vie,how cool that they have summer free rides in California! That is pretty awesome:) I bet next time, you will give it a go for sure:) xo

Pier 39 Prep said...

Absolutely!! They have $20 air balloon rides over Disneyland in Anaheim, but it's only for 10-15 minutes. Regardless, Disneyland is even more beautiful at night from a bird's view!

HiLLjO said...

Thank you, love! You are too sweet!

Diana Mieczan said...

Oh I bet, Pier 39 Prep:) Sounds wonderful.
