Hot air balloon flight

I wasn’t at work on Monday as I was travelling through the Cotswolds from Chipping Sodbury to Oxford for a hot air balloon flight at 6pm. It was a birthday present for Nick and I from last year, and this was our second booking after the weather cancelled plans for a flight over Bath on our wedding anniversary. Never mind: I got 2 weekends away out of it!
I definitely recommend the hot air balloon flight, even for those a bit scared of heights, because it is so gentle when you take off that you hardly notice how high you’re going. It actually gets more scarey again as you travel low to the ground, but then you get to see things better, like the hares darting around the field in fear of this enourmous round, red predator!
We didn’t have time to call in at the model village at Bourton on the Water, but Oxford from the air was a pretty good substitute. :-)

Some pretty pictures are available in the gallery on the left of this blog.
