I have always wanted to fly in a hot air balloon, this has been on my bucket list for a long time. On a cold December morning and far from the glitz and the glamour of the city of Dubai I went on a hot-air balloon flight over the Arabian desert with endless ocean of sand dunes and emerald green oases, spot native Arabian animals such as oryx, gazelles and wandering camels in their natural habitat.


Up in the air just like that. on the ground one minute and 5.00 feet in the air the next! Stayed in the air for about an hour. Apart from the “burn” needed to keep us buoyant, it was the most quiet, peaceful, blissful experience on Earth. I absolutely loved it, a very unique combination of exhilaration and serenity. No words can really describe it, you have got to try it.
