How often does one get to be over the moon with joy? Not very often I imagine, but we are lucky today, in our modern world, we are able to do thrilling things like soaring high, up in the sky, in a beautiful hot air balloon.

It was a quiet Easter Monday morning, in the world that I live, and here it is a public holiday.  A great time to be out exploring the world. I wasn’t lucky enough to be in the balloon, but I was lucky enough to get pictures, after my dogs alerted me to them flying close to our house.

I decided to check out the cost of a flight in one of these beauties.  With todays currency exchange rate, it averages around $229 US dollars for a one hour flight.   If you were wanting to purchase your own hot air balloon, you’d be looking at an average cost of $22,000 US for a small balloon carrying 2 people, and $35,000 – $45,000 US for a large one carrying up to 4 people plus the pilot.

I think I will definitely be putting this one on the bucket list of things to do.
