It's always been on my bucket list to do a balloon ride. In the movies and tv shows, it always seemed so magical, I mean you're floating in a balloon! And magical it was!
We woke up at 3:30am to be picked up by the Balloon Adventures company and taken to the desert where we would be floating in a balloon across the Arabian desert.
In basket with about 18 other people, we got up to 4000ft which was a bit scary-not going to lie! We saw the sun break through the morning clouds and rise over the Hajjar mountains of Oman - it was absolutely stunning.
Beautiful or what!? The company we used was Balloon Adventures Emirates - very friendly! I would recommend a balloon ride if you're looking to do something different. I'm hoping to do more balloon rides in different countries we visit!
