Sunrise from the Balloon Sunrise from the Balloon


Sally had told us we had to do this so we decided to sign up even though I'm a bit scared of heights and it meant getting up at 3.50am. It was amazing and I'm glad we did it. The views were incredible and the flight was very smooth as we drifted over fields, the Colossi of Memnon, the Valley of the Nobles and Queen Hatshepsut's Temple (see below), although every time the pilot fired up the burner it scorched the tops of our heads. Landing was a shock though: we had to brace ourselves in a ridiculous sitting position as the basket with 20 of us crammed into it hit the ground with a significant bump. Then we had to cope with kids trying to get us to buys worthless bits of rock as the sadistic balloon crew made us dance around in circles. I am not making this up!
