Orlando is world famous but let's be honest, most people go for one thing only – the theme parks.
While I do love the parks, dealing with the never ending line ups, the crowds, and kids driving parents crazy just didn't feel all that appealing for my most recent trip.
Despite my fear of heights, I think that was overtaken by my excitement for being in a hot air balloon for the very first time.
On the dew filled grass, we watched the skilled crew unfold the giant balloon from its pouch and with the basket on its side.
The feeling of floating up high and higher is as majestic as it sounds.
Think roller coaster but in zipline form.
That initial drop is a feeling like no other. Sound can't even come out of your mouth when you're going that fast.
