Well we’ve finally done it. After weeks of canceled flights and failed attempts, we finally went up, up, and away. And it was worth the wait. Meg bought a groupon ages back, so much so that it even expired. But the good guys that fly those balloons let us hop along in a last minute flight, catching a routine sunset over the Southern California Pacific Ocean.
There really isn’t much to do when it comes to hot air ballooning. I mean, certainly not if you’re just a passenger. We are usually just passengers in life anyways. All you have to do is show up and enjoy the views. Not a bad way to gain new perspectives. And the views are really better than one can imagine.
The thing is, you don’t have to be a pilot to experience new ways of seeing things. Sometimes other folks can do all the hard work (years of time, persistence, money) and you can reap the benefits by simply hopping along for the ride.
