We got to ride on a hot air balloon yesterday in Temecula. It was so beautiful overlooking all the vineyards. Because the flight was during sunrise, we woke up at 3 to drive a couple hours south of LA to Monte de Oro Winery where the hot air balloon was taking off. We were tired from only getting two hours of sleep at most and driving through traffic (yes there was traffic at 3:30 AM), but after a mimosa or two, we ended up enjoying the ride. I’m normally afraid of heights, but the wind was still, and the balloon ride was surprisingly calming and peaceful. I’m so glad I got to knock it off my bucket list. :)
Had a couple of photos I posted on my instagram as well. :) I’ve also been wanting to go to a big hot air balloon festival. Maybe the one in Albuquerque or maybe the ones in Europe?! What is something you’ve been wanting to cross off your bucket list lately?
