My Orlando Balloon Ride Pictures

Hi all,

It was nearly 5am when we set off to be Richard Branson for a couple of hours. I was really tired, a bit cold and wondering if this was the stupidest thing I’d ever done.

We drove away from International drive for about 30 mins in a large 8 seater minivan. The driver informed us that the launch site was an old hippy camp and the owner loved hot air balloons and let them launch from there for free.

balloon1We got stuck in straight away and started to help put up the balloon, part of the experience was getting your hands dirt and mucking in.

balloon2There were 2 other balloons due to fly that morning and I think due to my help we were the last to actually set up!!

balloon3The heat from the burner was incredible and I’m pretty sure I lost an eyebrow.

balloon4We set off a little after 8am, slightly later than usual.



Not a view for someone who is scared of heights. The feeling of being very high up in a balloon is something I would highly recommend.

balloon7The views were breath taking.

Our landing on the other hand was something to be desired, we “crash landed” in an orange tree field and had to wait to be rescued, while holding down a very heavy hot air balloon!
