Defying Gravity with Elemis

by on ‎09-01-2017 01:59 PM

One of my bucket list adventures has always been to ride in a hot air balloon and see what it was like. Would I be scared? Would it be thrilling? What would it feel like to be way up in the sky floating in a basket?! Well when Emer Gillen from Elemis asked me to go flying with her, I couldn't pass it up! So we made a date of it and decided to bring you along for the ride!!

We were excited to livestream a portion of the ride on Facebook Video (click for video). When you watch the video you really get the "feel" of what it's like to be up in the air under the hot balloon.

Turns out, it's simply beautiful! As majestic as you would imagine. As peaceful as the floating clouds in the sky. And of course, we had the most beautiful scenery to look upon!! We floated upwards of 1 mile high and covered about a 10mile radius. It was simply wonderful and I didn't want it to end!

My cousin in NJ had one, Soaring Spirits!  Went up twice:  once in early morning; once in evening. Very peaceful in the morning; at early evening, enjoy meeting people when landed!

So happy you were able to do it !

Very cool ~ The balloons are so beautiful to watch, but I'm too chicken to ride : )

You're very brave to do that!  Glad you didn't come too close to the nuclear power plant.

Isn't it great! I went up in a balloon called Drifting Star on July 31 to celebrate my one year sobriety birthday.

Hey Alberti:  You need to come to Albuquerque this week, IT IS BALLOON FIESTA WEEK - WE HAVE OVER 600 BALLOONS GOING UP.  Use to be 1000, but it was too dangerous. Anyway, the sky will be full of these fantastic shapes, Wells Fargo Stagecoach, Arrabelle (Creamland Cow), she is HUGE. Yoda, Darth Vader, etc.  Anyway, look on the internet and you can follow the fiesta.  God bless you - love you, Coco and the PRINCE.  Keep those pictures coming.

Where have you been Alberti!  Was away for a while and when I came back I haven't seen you on the Q.

Hi Alberti,

 

   I always enjoy the shows when you're hosting !....

 

I'm hoping you can get me in touch with Emer.   I have a question about a recent AD . Have already contacted CS and that was not helpful ....

 

Thank you .
