Going on a hot air ballon ride was such a great experience for us. There is nothing like it! I highly recommend trying it! Our guide was great. You will never get a chance to see the desert this way. It's so peaceful and quiet. Check out the pictures we took from our basket. For those who might feel a little trepidation, the basket is made of solid construction and the guides are skilled and knowledgeable.

Up, up and away!! As the sun rises on the Arabian desert, our hot air balloon rises along with it. We feel the warmth of the land slowly increase as our burner tries to beat it to keep us afloat. Everything on the Earth slowly became smaller, but all small things collectively gave us the vast view of desert wilderness, with the skyline of Dubai in the horizon. Quiet, calm, magical... ten people in a woven basket floating like a bird sitting in the sky with its wings open in a light breeze. After a good thirty minutes or so we had to return to the ground wishing we could just stay afloat in the air. As we braced ourselves for landing, it came sooner than expected, causing us to have a hard impact on the ground! Our world suddenly turned into a 90 degree angle with sand, shoes and shrubs flying around our heads and the screams of people breaking the desert silence. Finally we came to a halt, almost upside down - to get out we had to fall out of the basket! A scary end to an amazing flight, but whats life with out some thrills and spills to add to the adventure?
