Magical Air Balloon Rides Around the World

Probably one of the things found at the very top of my bucket list is to go on an air balloon ride! Ever since i first found when i was little while browsing my father's old numbers of National Geographic Magazine. Of course, the one i was most drawn to was the ever famous ride in Cappadocia, Turkey. This mystical land i so desperately want to visit, a land which keeps on coming back in my mind whenever i think of where i want to go next. For now, I can't go because since Cappadocia is such a dream for me, it has to come true in the most fashionable way, not simply with the last minute ticket to Istanbul and a train ride and a cheap hotel. I want my visit to Turkey to be the realisation of my childhood dreams and therefore i will wait until I can have enough money, experience and equipment to document and fully enjoy it.

Today I have decided to list a few of the other air balloon experiences i have put on my bucket list, right below the Cappadocia experience.

Air Balloon Ride in Cappadocia, Turkey

Air Balloon Ride in Tuscany, Italy

Since moving to Milan, Tuscany is definitely close to me (actually i feel like everything beautiful that there is Italy is close to me now), therefore I think this experience is going to happen in the near future!

Air Balloon Ride in Bagan, Myanmar

Flying over a landscape filled with incredible Buddhist Temples and a beautiful vegetation seems a true dream come true! This land looks like it was taken right out of a fairytales book. The ride will take you over the Temples of the Bagan region and the nearby villages.

Air Balloon Ride in Yangshuo, Cina

Pictures really can't do justice to this wonderful passage over the Li River, coasted by stunning green mountains. The ride will take you over high mountains, water streams, farm lands and typical rural villages.

Air Balloon Ride in Magalies Valley, South Africa

This balloon round is in South Africa. I musy say I  have a special connection with this country therefore the fact it is in SA is reason enough. Ahah ok no seriously this place is so stunning and rich in sights, you will not want to miss out on it! It's also near Johannesburg so it is fairly easy to get here.

Air Balloon Ride in Wadi Rum, Jordan

It is situated in such a deserted area, it does not get much isolated than that but Jordan is one of the countries i want to visit the most in this world, therefore this air balloon ride had to be put on this list!

Air Balloon Ride in Monument Valley, Utah, Usa

In a landscape taken out of a western movie, with reminiscences of the times of the Gold Rush. A true must, just remember to bring a lot of water with you!

Have you visited any of these locations? Do you have other recommendations for me to add on my bucket list?
