It is with a degree of envy that we are woken some mornings to the sound of a hot air balloon flying overhead. Views over forested mountains and nearby beaches, a champagne breakfast, and a day without the usual drudgery of going to work all make the idea of an early morning in a hot air balloon very enticing.
From the ground it is still possible to share the experience of those above. Our valley becomes a part of the balloonists’ view and in turn their enjoyment. The roar of the balloon filling with hot air merges with the more earth-bound sounds of frogs and crickets, uniting the two spheres.
