Floating in a basket with only the gentle murmur of conversation and the occasional blast of gas burner providing any noise I felt as if I were dreaming. It wasn’t that much of a stretch as we had hauled ourselves out of bed at 3:30 AM to prepare for our morning flight in Goreme, Turkey.
Like most things, the torture of getting out of bed at such an awful hour was worth it once we were experiencing the reward – sunrise from a basket vantage point.
After the flight I declared that I have retired from balloon riding, I’ve peaked. How could any other ride compare to the sights of Goreme Turkey, (natural and multiple-balloon inclusive).
For those planning a float/flight of their own in Goreme we chose Maccan Balloons and they were fantastic.
