    Now I am jealous. I would love to go up in a balloon.
    My wife and daughter gave me a helicopter trip for my last birthday. I think I will have to drop some (not too) subtle hints – hehehe

  • It’s a wonderful experience Tom, would do it again in a flash!

    And isn’t it one hell of an experience, to see inside it like that.
    ( you should place it in the group: Come Fly With Me. )

  • Yes I think I saw you put yours up the day after my balloon ride. I thought “The bugger has beaten me to it”.
    It is amazing isn’t it!
