This past Wednesday, I had the pleasure of riding in my first ever hot-air balloon ride!
Simply put, it was AMAZING.
I received this experience in collaboration with online magazine, Hudson Valley Happenings. Hudson Valley Happenings serves as an upstate guide for local events, top places to stay, eat, drink and play.
Since flying in a hot-air ballon was something I have never done before, I expected some nerves or uneasiness.... NOPE!
The ride was smooth, and with surroundings of the Hudson Valley, the views were magnificent. I didn't want to come down.
Being up high provided a whole new perspective of the things around you. It was so quiet and soothing; absolutely serene.
