Getting the opportunity to experience a hot air ballon ride with Ballooning Canterbury was breath taking. Getting up at 5am made it even more so worth while, the fresh air and the glow of the sun over the mountains as It wakes up the city is something you have too experience. I would highly recommend doing the early morning rise to make the experience come together.
Over looking the farm planes in Canterbury area whilst gliding through the air and the world so still, only the sound of the gas being turned on every few minutes to keep us lifted brings you back to reality.
and just like that its sadly over... but as of the tradition set by the french a picnic was set up wth a few snack for breakfast and a check glass of champagne.
