Balloon Flight

June 11th, 2019

While we were in Cappadocia we took a flight in a balloon. I’ve got to admit I thought the price was a bit steep and didn’t feel like it would be worth it. Boy, was I wrong; it was amazing. 

We had to wake up at some ridiculous hour, like 5am, and stand around in the cold breeze while they inflated the envelope and got ready to fly. But once we got off the ground, the breeze stopped, cause we were drifting along with it, and we floated silently over the landscape. I was giddy. I’d jump at the chance to do it again; it was totally worth it!

Here’s an image I shot while we were flying.
