Napa Valley Aloft Hot Air Balloon Ride

If you missed my first Napa recap, you can read it here.

One of the things that I've had at the tippity top of my bucket list for years is taking a hot air balloon ride! I've always wanted to do it, but it had to be in the right location because doing one in Ohio (while probably still really pretty!) has never really made me pull the trigger. When we booked our trip to Napa, I remembered hearing about people doing them there and instantly knew we HAD to do it! What better place than Napa Valley over the vineyards?! It's a good thing Billy was all for it too because I wasn't about to take no for an answer... :)

If you're looking for a once in a lifetime memory or experience, I can't recommend a hot air balloon ride with Napa Valley Aloft enough. I'm actually scared of heights, but I never felt uneasy during the hour and 20 min flight...it was really serene and calming!

Our pilot took us up 3,000 ft and we traveled over 6 miles, including seeing San Francisco in the distance. He was so knowledgeable about the areas we were going over and made us feel super comfortable. The entire flight I couldn't stop saying "it's so beautiful!" and taking pictures. I was in complete awe, and would do it again in a second!

The pictures speak for themselves... (and on that note-I do recommend buying the photo package they offer when you arrive because they were able to get some really great ones of us when we took off!)

 (this was shortly after our 6am arrival time but don't worry, they provided coffee + breakfast before the flight!)
I MEAN....๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜

You can't beat views like that. We will always remember what a good time we had!

Lastly, since I have gotten so many questions about this-if you're interested in learning more about the different flight options or about the company...go HERE! They truly went above and beyond to make us comfortable and enjoy our time. 

Next up will be all about our time in SF! Happy Tuesday!
