Birthday Hot Air Balloon Ride in Temecula

By  |  2 Comments

Wow, I’m 27 years old! My Birthday was back on June 1 and about a week before that I took a quick 2 hour drive down to Temecula California for a little birthday celebration the weekend before. For my birthday I normally like to travel somewhere new or cross something off my bucket list. And since I have been traveling a lot lately, I decided it was a good time to try something new!

After doing some thorough research on the best Hot Air Balloon companies and where I’d like to go I landed on Magical Adventures Balloon Rides.  The company and workers were great and extremely friendly, and I highly recommend taking a ride with them!  You can see a little bit about how the hot air balloons are inflated and my trip in my quick video below!

I started my journey down to Temecula at 3am after waking up at 2am.  I’m an early riser but boy is that early! But I certainly couldn’t miss the 5am time I needed to be there at, so it was well worth it.  Needless to say, I consumed a lot of coffee that day!

I could barely feel us moving at points which was great especially because I was freaking out a bit, as I’m afraid of heights.

It was such an incredible flight.  There was barely any wind so it was smooth sailing the entire way! I couldn’t have asked for a better day to go on. A truly amazing experience.

What’s one thing on your bucket list you want to do?

Have you gone in a hot air balloon before?
