I purchased a bunch of raffle tickets from a local Humane Society this Christmas - most of which I gave to different people for gifts. Lo and Behold, I was the winner of the Grand Prize!!!! A Lover's Package (I'm single!) that includes a Hot Air Balloon ride for 2 (along with dinner, wine, a chauffered ride to and from the balloon site, various gift certificates, and a huge basket filled with massage oils and other wonderful things!). My daughter has been wanting to go up in a Hot Air Balloon for a long time and here's her chance!! Her fiance is terrifed of heights, so it looks like I have to go with her. I was excited about it, until I saw a video of an actual flight (from the perspective of the passenger). It looks a bit scary . I'm not afraid of heights, just that feeling you get in the pit of your stomach on any ride that goes up and down too fast (I refuse to go on roller coasters). So. . . . . anyone ever been on a Hot Air Balloon that can share their own experience???
