During my first trip to Germany with my brother, we ended up taking a day-trip by train with a group from our hostel. Right away I noticed a guy travelling with an overly large duffel bag so I assumed that he was heading to the airport after the excursion. Boy was I wrong.
Inside the man carried an extra-large Teddy bear with a folding stool. He explained how he took it all around the world, taking photos of the bear. He even had a book of photos that he proudly showed as proof. The reason that he traveled with the bear had something to do with his son. I wish I remembered more of the details but this was probably around 7-8 years back.
While reading online I came across a story that reminded of that time in Germany.
Growing up I always felt that hot air balloons looked like fun and always wanted to take a ride in one. Back in 2010 I got the chance to do so during a trip to Turkey and it didn’t disappoint.
I didn’t know quite what to expect. Would it be a pricey mistake or one of the most amazing experiences?
When we got to the balloon launch area, it was pretty crazy. There were dozens of balloons being prepared for flight which in itself was an interesting sight to see. Once we lifted off it was pure, amazing fun. Gliding in the air over buildings and while seeing the famous chimneys of Cappadocia, you might just think that you were on another planet!
