My husband surprised me with a weekend trip to Napa for my birthday/Mother's Day. He wouldn't tell me what we were doing waking up at 4:30am but said I would really really like his surprise. We drove to the hotel where there were lots of people gathering. Not sure what was going on, soon I figured out we were flying in a hot air balloon over Napa Valley. So excited to embark on a new adventure, I couldn't wait! After arriving at the launch site, I saw 4 balloon filled and ready for take-off. I was surprised how big the baskets were, held up to 22 people I think. Once we started to take off, it was as if you were floating away. Seeing the valley so early in the morning was just magnificent! In the air, I was surprised how quiet it was, other than when the pilot needed more heat to keep us moving. I thought this experience was just fantastic. Every single one of the staff members were awesome! They were friendly, helpful and organized. After our ride, we were driven back to the hotel for a lovely champagne brunch. Everything was good, especially the champagne! :D We would definitely do it again!!
