We were doing things the other balloons weren't. Really going places it felt you could only get to in a hot air balloon. Also, Jeff was the absolute best. Beyond having every most awesome and rare certification, his energy was perfect.

I never thought I'd be in a Hot Air Balloon. This was a really great experience; something that I added and checked off my bucket list, on the same day. The added bonus, was the buffet breakfast, at the end of the flight.
