The Hot Air Balooning Brisbane Tour And My Adventures In Austrailia
This summer, I had the most amazing experience one could imagine. I went to Australia. I have been telling myself I would go there for years, but I have always found one reason or another to put it off. Finally I got the gumption to go out and do it. I did a lot of research and planned out my trip to see as much as possible. The trip was every bit as magnificent as I had hoped; I went scuba diving in the Great Barrier Reef, hiking in the outback, and tried many different foods (I don’t recommend the vegemite). Surprisingly though, out of all the magnificent sights to see, there is one that I would recommend hands down. Hot Air Ballooning! Hot Air Balooning Brisbane offers rides that start in the morning and last a couple hours. When I say morning, I really mean it. Since the hours just after sunrise are much cooler than the middle of the day, the winds are more predictable and steady. This makes it the optimal time to launch a hot air balloon.
There is something wonderful about seeing the countryside from 4500 feet in the air. The distance and direction you travel depends on the wind speed and weather. You have no choice but to let fate decide where your adventure will take you! The balloon doesn’t have the capability to steer into a direction, but it can control the height of travel, taking advantage of different wind speeds at different heights.
It’s interesting, but what many people don’t realize is that while you are up in the air, you are floating neutrally with the wind, so when the burner is off, you are able to actually hear sounds as you pass over them. The experience is entirely surreal. You feel like part of nature and separate from it at the same time.
Even if you are afraid of heights, it is a great trip to take. I’m not a big fan of heights, but the balloon feels incredibly secure, and by the time you get up in the air, the sights and amazement of the experience makes you forget your fears for a while. Walking around Australia, while great in and of itself, gives you one perspective that so many others have already experienced. I highly recommend you take a chance and experience the path less traveled. Just don’t forget your camera!
