    Wow M8. That looks like an awesome experience!
    How long was the duration of the flight?

    Lovin no. 1. Just wish it was bigger so I can appreciate the atmosphere.

    Great images. Hot air ballooning is an amazing way to travel and so peaceful (until you need to land).

    It really was a great experience. I thought it would be much more windy and cold up there, but it was perfect. Silently cruising the air and the only sound you can hear is the burner when air in balloon needs to be heated up.

    The duration of the flight was around hour and half...too short if you ask me :smile:

    Even the landing wasn't problematic, no bumps, no jumping of the basket, just gentle touchdown.

    One more shot for kickin acrophobia in :)
