This is hot air balloon that we took a ride in last year. It was a surprise birthday present from my husband, and is the most lovely and thoughtful gift I have ever received. I have ALWAYS wanted to go on a hot air balloon ride.
We went over Belton House just outside Grantham in Lincolnshire, and has pretty much perfect weather. Sunny, clear skies, light breeze; glorious. The views were stunning, and we were all given champagne afterwards.
I love being up high, and was peering out over the basket. My husband; not so much. The fact that he wasn’t entirely comfortable at about 3000 feet in the air in a wicker basket being held up by what is essentially a large upside-down silk bag and an oversized camping stove, made it even more impressive.
Hope you enjoy!
