They also gave us an instruction card to read.
The flight take place at dawn; have an average flight time of 1.5 – 2 hours and a capacity of approximately 14 people per balloon. It's quite cold in the area where they dropped us at with our balloon. The only warmth part would be when they launched the fire.
We finally got to get into the basket.
Tip: be the last to get in so your view can cover the whole area from left to right.
Going up with the other balloons, its so beautiful, magical so surreal that I can't believe its actually happening!
Everyone getting ready to fly.
We flew over this balloon who is trying to get up.
The pilot will guide you through the valleys of Cappadocia in their balloons. During which time he can drift down through the canyons and float high above the topography to view the extraordinary landscape.
Most amazing part is that you also get to the see the sunrise.
We went up really high up. And happen to capture this shot of the top view of another balloon. :)
The pilot is super pro, he has such precise control of the balloon that we can brush through the treetops and explore some of the areas hidden treasures.
This is the colour of my balloon.
I had to sort out the 259 photos of hot air balloons to pick out for this post. And this is one of my favourite shot, try spotting the moon. Most of the time we are just floating around depending on the wind direction.
And time is up, we landed on the back of the vehicle, SUPER PRO LANDING!
After the landing, the crew decorated the basket with flowers. We celebrate with a sparkling Champagne Cocktail.
Before the drinks, I received a personalized flight certificate and postcards as a memento of my balloon adventure.
No regrets! Best decision ever.
